MeJana is a singular addition to the Mid-West dining scene as it offers genuine Lebanese dishes. The setting is brim-full of atmosphere, as this restaurant has followed the traditional Lebanese form of eating, which involves sharing one’s food. The meal centers on mezze, which are smaller plates with very different tastes and mixtures of ingredients. Each party selects 3 or four mezze ( which can on occasion be either hot ), then everybody tooks in to the feast! Of course, it must be washed down with a drink or 2 – Arak and Jellab ( date juice ) are favored by many but wine, which originated in Lebanon, is also popular of course. All dishes aside from the steak are Halal.
