A bright and airy Middle Eastern bistro

Tina Leme/Time Out São Paulo
Interior of Gibran

There’s no shortage of Middle Eastern delights in São Paulo, from humble lanchonete kibes and esfihas to some very fine dining establishments. But with a menu of fresh, healthy Lebanese and other specialities, Itaim’s Gibran, more than most, serves the sort of thing you might find in a contemporary Beirut dining room – a million miles from the heavier, oilier dishes of much diaspora cookery. Soft pillowy esfihas with cheese and basturme – an Armenian form of pastrami – and the deeply savoury mohamara – a red-pepper-and-walnut dip, less spicy than the classic Turkish version, are some of the don’t-miss standouts at this bright, airy bistro.
