Where friends gather for Lebanese food — when we saw that tagline, our wandering group veered off the beaten pub crawl path and grabbed a table. Les Amis in Fullerton, CA is as nonthreatening as ethnic Lebanese places come. They have a simple but expansive menu, an orderup desk accented by a beautifully decorated indoor seating area that makes you feel you’re spending a pretty penny on your meal, when in fact, you are not.

The weather was beautiful so we hopped on an outdoors table, an equally enjoyable setting considering the corner parking lot location.

We started off the meal with some rounds of tea, quickly followed by a delicious plate of baba ghannouj —

It wouldn’t be a complete Lebanese meal if we didn’t round out the experience with some house coffee. You haven’t experienced dark, rich and…serious coffee until you’ve put down a glass, or three.

If you’re anywhere in the Orange County area, do yourself a favor and check out Les Amis. You won’t be disappointed.
