Chee Tayeb, Perth (Invited)
Chee Tayeb is a Lebanese restaurant located in the heart of the city on 353 Murray St which is also within walking distance from the King St shopping area. We were informed about it by Radomir from R&Co agency earlier this month and received an invitation to attend the opening for media, families and bloggers.
I went to the Chee Tayeb website and did a quick homework on them. The Facebook page said that it'd be a fine dining restaurant which focus on Lebanese food with French and Italian twist. Chee Tayeb can fit about 35 people comfortably inside the premise.
The place was buzzing with guests when I went there and we were seated right away by Radomir. Food took quite a while to come out but we were happily munching away the delicious house-made hummus with warm and fluffy bread that the staff kept on serving on our table. The long table was decorated prettily with flowers in various colours which suits the place really well. The restaurant reminded me of a mini lodge up in a mountain especially with a backdrop of wooden wall.
Our main food was a platter of Tawouk, very tender marinated chicken skewers with pickles and garlic sauce which also accompanied by crispy chips and Fattouch. Contrary to its name (fat-touch), Fattouch is a very refreshing salad which contains tomato, cucumber, capsicum, spring onion, mint, parsley, and topped with vegetable oil, salt and lemon dressing. The whole thing on the platter was really delicious and I really love it!
We finished off with Namoura, a rich and dense traditional Lebanese cake bar topped with walnuts or almonds which was really great to be enjoyed after a delicious meal.
Chee Tayeb opens from 7AM from Monday to Sunday and in the morning they serve some simple breakfast menu for customers who want to grab a quick breakfast as you can see below:
And yes, just like the name suggested (Chee Tayeb means Something Delicious), our meals that night were really delicious!
