If you are after a Middle-Eastern inspired cuisine to tell your friends about, you have to try Rumi. Located on the famed Lygon Street in Brunswick East, Rumi offers a number of fresh and exotic dishes to share ranging from BBQ whole king prawns to Persian meatballs with tomato and saffron sauce, all made from fresh, high quality and authentic ingredients. And all of which can be enjoyed with a glass of fine wine from the extensive vino list. Try the imported whites and reds from Lebanon next to the always delightful Holly’s Garden pinot gris from Gippsland, Victoria. Start the meal with Rumi’s housemade labne and be transported to the streets of Beirut.
