Souq at Qaryat al Beri, 1st floor, beside Fogo de Brazil.
Saj Al Qarya the delightful hidden gem in Souk Al Beri beside the Shangri La. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ and two full bellies
If you are looking for authentic Lebanese home style cooking, this is the place for you. From the warm hosts, to the more than reasonable prices, myself and Emer were charmed from the very beginning.
Tariq greeted us and promptly sat us outside on the terrace which overlooks the canal. Then he explained in detail the menu with his iPad (fancy). We told the waiter to choose the food for us and we were not disappointed. The owner Hamid was also present and very friendly, but not over bearing also bringing us some specialities designed by his wife and mother with some Lebanese flare. The breakfast menu for two people to share (can see below eggs and various appetizers) with tea for two was between 90-120 dhs depending on the sides. They have separate gorgeous little bread warmers (they say people are trying to buy them and we were tempted too). Emer, who despises Zaatar with a passion, loved their imported Lebanese Zaatar Saj (although the first bite was force fed 😅)
Our favorites were the breakfast eggs, the hummus with chicken shawarma, the walnut and tomato saj, the quinoa salad came in a jar and was the freshest I’ve had in a long time beating Nolus and Circle. Finally who could not love the mystic ice cream with cotton candy on top (an Arabic ice cream made with cardamom) in case I didn’t mention this place is a steal, and with 20% off with best bites it’s even better.
Also they have applied for a Sheesha license outside 🙌🏼 and they deliver to certain areas around Al Maqta.
