Last night my boyfriend surprised me with a dinner reservation and he told me it was on my list of restaurants to try in Perth. Just before we were leaving the house he had left the window for Google maps open on his computer and I saw the directions to The Prophet. I appreciated the thought regardless.
I’ve heard great things about The Prophet and after a brief holiday to Bangkok recently I was keen to discover Perth again.
This cosy restaurant is always booked out in advance so book ahead, but is opened later on Saturday with the kitchen still open till 10.30pm.
The Prophet Menu
The bf and I could not decide what dishes to order because we felt like a bit of everything so we opted for the banquet which was a selection of entrees and mains for $40.00pp. A minimum of two people required.
A free basket of warm bread is served. Additional baskets $2.00 extra. We were warned by one of the workers to not eat all the bread as there was a lot of food coming.
mmm Garlic chickpea dip with a a centre of olive oil.
Garlic Sauce and Pickles
I love garlic sauce on everything.
Additional Garlic Sauce
And more garlic sauce. Not as awesome as the one from Little Lebanon.
All this with Tabouleh and Baba Ghanouj made up our cold entrees.
For the hot entree, we had three pieces falafel. The yogurt sauce and tomatoes made this dish very refreshing even though it was deep fried.
These had a mince lamb filling. I preferred the falafels.
For mains we got three meat dishes and two vegetable dishes.
The first meat dish was chicken skewers.
This was my favourite savoury dish of the night. The meat was very tender and the meat well marinaded.
The pastry for this was very yummy. The filling was the same as the kibbeh though.
These beans were ok. Nothing special.
Lebanese Coffee $3.00 small $6.00 medium $9.00 large
This was a medium sized coffee and made about four cups. It was very strong.
Another highlight of the night was the baklava. The layers of filo was very crispy and sweet.
All in all it was a good experience. The waitress’s were fairly attentive, food was good, but it was very noisy. I prefer Elie’s Tent for atmosphere, service and most importantly food. Especially their dessert options.
