The first time I went to the restaurant by the name Mahalle, I can safely say that is what pure and heartfelt love at very first sight. Mahalle is a Lebanese restaurant with a flavorful and almost entirely vegetarian menu. The concept at Mahalle is that you order many different small dishes, such as hummus, bulgur salad, fried halloumi and many other Lebanese dished that will make your mouth water.
My absolute favorite is the mint lemonade: never has a cold beverage tasted so intense of mint and lemon! Mahalle is a small and indeed very popular restaurant, both inside and outside the neighbourhood of Nørrebro, where the two out of the three restaurants are located. The third restaurant is situated in the inner city of Copenhagen.
Opening hours in the other two restaurants are:
Nørrebrogade 51 Mon – Sun 10:00 – 23:00 and
Nansensgade 66 Mon – Sat 10:00 – 23:00, Sun 11:00-23:00.
Meanwhile the actual restaurant in Birkegade is relatively small and cozy with a lovely rustic interior design. The prices are affordable, and one might even say cheap. You won’t have to spend a fortune, by Danish standards that is.
If you have made a reservation before coming, it can be hard, but not impossible to get a table. You will not regret going to Mahalle and I can promise you, even if you love meat, that this is a restaurant you will want to come back to in the future.
