Former Teacher Transforms Kous Kous Cafe In Mt. Lebanon Into A Delicious Destination

Look the wrong way for just a moment and it would be easy to miss Kous Kous Cafe on Washington Road in Mt. Lebanon. The narrow storefront, previously occupied by an outpost of the Enrico Biscotti Company, seems an unlikely location for a restaurant.

I have eaten at Kous Kous Cafe several times, including lunch today, and everything has been delicious. I like that they start from scratch with well-chosen meats and vegetables (many locally sourced) and prepare them with a subtle hand that lets the ingredients speak. They also offer a number of dishes that feature meats that have been braised, a time-consuming, moist-cooking technique that turns tough yet flavorful cuts into supreme succulence. The lamb osso bucco, which I had for dinner a few nights ago, is a perfect example.

If you like good food, prepared well and without gimmicks, try Kous Kous Cafe.

Couldn't agree more with Tom. A great place to lunch. I love the personal touches like when the chef comes to your table to ask how everything was.

We took my aunt and uncle there for dinner over Easter weekend. My goodness was it good.

They had a special, pan-seared scallops in tomato sauce over their saffron rice. Best seafood I've had in the city in a long, long time.

Also recommended is the Bastilla appetizer. Totally yummy. Can't wait to go back.
