During the holiday season it's all about trying and experiencing new when it comes to food. You are not only experiencing the place or destination visited you are drawn toward the door of the culinary world itself one that tantalizes your tastebuds through various cuisines.
Most people relax and take a step back from the kitchen and rather go to restaurants and take time away from the predicted weekly menu. Either in a new destination or not you still go through a journey and adventure by taken to Italy with the Italian cuisine or to Dubai for Middle Eastern/Arabian Food with the aromas spices and flavours serenading the air.
Zaroob eatery in Dubai does just that. This place is a favorite for us at every visit. Though you can have very similar Middle Eastern food in various other places in Dubai this restaurant again encompasses all that makes a restaurant an experience. It emphasizes on sounds and scents representing the traditional street feel of the Levant. The name itself Zaroob means ‘alley way’ and it’s in those alley ways that traditional street food vendors sell, fresh, traditional wholesome, simple cooking. In this restaurant the concept of eating is adapted with the live cooking stations, juice bar, open kitchens and diversity of decoration from the Arab world make it lively and enjoyable for recreating outside terraces that provided the perfect dining space during the cooler seasons with a setting reflecting the interior and the concept.
The food is delicious and this is what we had as a family of four. We asked for everything together apart from the dessert.
Hummus and freshly baked pita bread
Mix plate Shawerma, chicken, beef, salad, pickles, dip and chips
KOSHARI an Egyptian dish of rice and lentils topped with pasta, tomato sauce with chickpeas and crispy fried onions.
For drinks I had a fresh lime and mint juice, my girls had the fresh watermelon juice.
And for dessert my husband and I had Kunafa with Turkish coffee and the girls had a Nutella Saj, a thin warm wrap spread with Nutella and Banana. It is the season of being merry.
So enjoy the times you do go out and endulge. Moments with family and good food experiences don’t happen everyday. The chips were just yummy, balance not clean!!
