Lebanese food is undeniably one of Dubai’s most popular imports. There seems to be a near insatiable appetite for the food of Lebanon here and one of the city’s favourite restaurants to experience all that the cuisine has to offer is Al Beiruti. Here guests are free to feast on a menu of crowd-pleasing plates as well as enjoying the optional sheesha options.
Offering menus that span from breakfast through to dinner, whatever time of the day you find yourself dining here they’ll be something delicious to enjoy. A favourite first thing is the Lebanese breakfast platter which is served on a pretty silver tray with individual bowls filled with dips, roasted vegetables, cheese and salads as well as fresh herbs to finish everything off. This crisp, bright serve is sure to set you up for your day in the right way.
Later in the day there are both hot and cold mezze selections as well as plates from the grill, sandwich platters and hearty mains. Favourites from the latter include a wonderfully fragrant chicken shawarma served on top of a flatbread to soak up all the cooking juices with fried potatoes and pickles on the side. If you’re an expat abroad looking for a taste of home, then there are also a few western style dishes too to choose from that run from a Philly cheese steak style wrap through to burgers and pasta.
An indication of the inclusive and welcoming nature of the restaurant is the kids’ menu which ensures mini guests are well catered for too. Little ones are sure to love the penne with tomato sauce, the juicy hamburgers or the chicken strips and chicks.
Come drinks and the menu is as varied and interesting as the food. Think fresh juices, milkshakes, cocktails and mocktails.
