Minutes south of Whyte Avenue and its string of restaurants is a little Lebanese dining establishment. Parkallen Restaurant has garnered a superlative reputation city-wide for its Middle Eastern cuisine, and is considered one of the best-kept secrets of the south side. But this kind of secret is hard to keep, especially when owners recently added a sidewalk café-type patio for patrons to enjoy in summer months.
Pleasure by the Slice
The restaurant began as a family-run pizza place in 1987 but it wasn’t long before the demand—for not only pizzas, but traditional Lebanese cuisine as well—outdid the size of the location. The result was an expansion of the little pizzeria into a casual but elegant restaurant where customers can enjoy everything from Lamb Mansaff for four to the national dish of Lebanon, Kebi bil Sanieh. And pizza? You can definitely get that too.
Pizza Made from Scratch
The pizzas still retain the same unique taste they had when the chefs began the Parkallen Restaurant thirty years ago and the Fatouche salad that made the eatery first famous is also available. Crusts maintain that same thickness and are amazingly light. Better still, you aren't likely to experience sampling a doughy texture that creates an extra workout on the jaw. You'll also find the same toppings as in any other pizza joint in town, from meatballs to pepperoni, even special vegetarian combos. Whether you’re looking for a nice night out with exotic Lebanese cuisine or a pizza to pick up on the way home, Parkallen Restaurant is the way to go.
