It's great to know our mates in the Inner West aren’t missing out on the amazing Middle Eastern pizza bars we love so much in Western Sydney. Manoosh Pizzeria has become a local institution for freshly baked pizza and Lebanese food in Enmore. We called in to find out why.

For starters, there’s a whopping 35 pizzas on their menu! Manoosh bake modern, traditional, Lebanese, folded, gluten free and even vegan pizzas. We didn't try the vegan pizza but we've been told the special cheese they use is delicious!

We were in the mood for a big hot chicken pizza so we ordered the owners namesake, Charlie’s Special! The base was a real crowd pleaser, crispy on the outside with a nice soft centre. It was topped with a generous spread of cheese, chicken, ham, mushroom, onions, olives and fetta on a BBQ base.  Our pizza expert knocked over three big slices with no problem at all, and really enjoyed stretching that cheese!

We spoke to Charlie who owns and operates Manoosh, he told us they were famous for their Lebanese chicken wraps. Theres a good reason for this, they make their own bread! He didn’t need to twist my arm to try one. The wrap was warm and slightly toasty on the outside before revealing the soft and fluffy bread underneath. Inside were layers of tender chicken, crispy salad, Lebanese pickles and creamy hummus. I had a big bowl of fresh tabbouleh on the side so I was pretty much in heaven.

The food at Manoosh is really generous but I managed to squeeze in one or two of their tasty pumpkin kebbeh. Lebanese kebbeh is traditionally made with burghal, meat and spices which are deep fried in the shape of a football. Pumpkin kebbeh is a vegan option, it's stuffed with chickpeas, onions spinach, burghal and of course, pumpkin. I would be happy to eat this over the meat version any day. I really liked that the filling wasnt totally minced, I could see a few chickpeas when I opened them up to smother on some garlic sauce.  If your more of a carnivore, our pizza expert recommends the cheezy chorizo balls, he snapped those up as they hit the table.

I was amazed to find out Charlie grew up in Merrylands and opened Manoosh at the tender age of 22! He developed his cultural food skills from his extended family of bakers, so It was natural for him to follow in their footsteps. Charlie has been baking pizzas for eight years in Enmore, to keep up with demand he recently opened a second eatery in Marrickville.

Manoosh brings a little bit of the Middle East, to the Inner West. They cater for meat eaters, vegetarians and vegans with consistent quality across the board. This place was a real surprise package, from the outside it looked like a modest suburban pizza bar, but the food here exceeded our expectations. We love finding places like this that serve really good food, in an unpretentious environment! Definitely worth travelling too if you live outside the area.
