MLLE brings twisted Lebanese cuisine to Laysen Valley

Longing for Lebanese food? Well, you’re in luck.

Fans of Lebanese food, we have some delicious news. If the sound of flatbreads, fatteh and freeeh get your mouth watering, then you’ll want to check out the newly opened MLLE in Riyadh’s Laysen Valley.

MLLE describes itself as a melting pot of the Levant. The restaurant prides itself on creating twisted Lebanese cuisine while paying homage to traditional cooking techniques. Not only does the restaurant feature hand-painted plates and patterned upholstery, but it also aims to take simple ingredients and turn them into complex dishes.

MLLE Riyadh

MLLE in Riyadh is easy to spot, thanks to its grand exterior and illuminated logo. The dining room includes a dramatic indoor tree with red leaves, black and white floor tiles, and white walls. The ceilings include artwork from Wijdan AlJahwr, and seats range from chairs to long banquettes. The decorative touches include marble tabletops.

Dine amidst the contemporary interiors and tuck into a menu of mezzeh, breads, and charcoal-grilled meats. Dishes are instilled with a modern twist with signatures such as hummus wagyu, ribs kebbah and the um Ali mille-feuille already proving popular.

MLLE is in good company in Laysen Valley, joining French restaurant Bagatelle, Italian hotspot Santini, and Japanese favourite Sumosan in a location that combines Najd’s timeless charm and a splash of modern pizzazz.
