I asked for recommendations for an Arabic place last week and today we headed out for the said lunch. We went to Hard Walls Cafe in Marina Mall (which actually was not suggested by anyone here).
In fact, I was very skeptical since the Zomato rating wasn't very good and neither did I find any review in here but an Arabic colleague assured us that he's been a regular for years now and we wouldn't be disappointed. He sure was right.
Very generous portion sizes, delicious food and prompt service. Being a weekday, the place wasn't too crowded either. We absolutely enjoyed the meal and I think it was total value for money. Plenty of options even for vegetarians.
The salads were super fresh and light, the bread was fluffy and warm. It was my first time trying stuffed vine leaves and I absolutely relished them. The hummus was creamy deliciousness too. The fattoush was my most favorite - so light and packed with flavor. My colleagues thoroughly enjoyed their mixed grill.
This place is a #hiddengem.
