Zaroob- Real Lebanese Food In Dubai.
If one word could be used to describe Zaroob, then it is definitely ‘funky’. Because of the crazy colorful theme, Zaroob comes out as fun, fresh and fashionable! The concept itself is inspired by conventional street vendors (thus named as Zaroob – Levant street eatery), serving traditional and scrumptious Lebanese food.
What makes Zaroob unique is it’s eye catching theme in which one will find every color in the world. It’s double story slots showcases a live workshop like kitchen where one can watch all the chefs working in a cheerful ambiance with cluttering sounds all around. The ornamentation of the whole restaurant houses a traditional street market of the Middle East, with catchy slogans written almost everywhere!
The staff working there was very friendly and active, who explained and guided us in everything we needed to know. We were served with mixed fruit smoothies first which were a bit too much sweet for our appreciation but the banana smoothie served to us, had a quite better taste.
For the main course, we were served with Laham Ajeen, a Syrian dish, that is actually a meat ball consisting of tamarind and beef. It was very crispy and delicious that exploded our taste buds with every bite. We also tried Falafel, that was equally scrumptious, crispy on the outside and soft on the inside.
In the end I would like to say that Zaroob is a must try. The food is not expensive at all as it will only cost you 140 dhs to have a fulfilling meal for two and this price is worth it because of the uniqueness of the restaurant that displays true colors of the UAE’s street market and traditional Lebanese food that is not experienced daily in Dubai.
