Zaroob Restaurant Opens In Sharjah 

Zaroob the trendy and casual dining restaurant offering Levantine cuisine opened a new branch in Sharjah recently. I was invited to the grand opening of Zaroob.

The new branch of Zaroob in Sharjah is conveniently located at the beautiful Al Majaz waterfront, Buhaira Corniche Street.

Zaroob is a Levant street-food  eatery and it serves authentic Levantine cuisine with a modern touch.  Zaroob means alley or corner in Arabic. If you ask me, Zaroob is much more than a corner. It is a world: filled with fresh and delicious Levantine dishes in a quirky and unique atmosphere.

I have already been to their branch in Sheikh Zayed road, Dubai  and I knew what to expect in terms of food and ambience.

The Zaroob’s new branch at the Buhaira Corniche has the magnificent view of the Al Majaz waterfront. It has indoor and outdoor seating. The interiors are funky, bold,  vibrant and kitschy. The setting is done up really well- from the seating to the cutlery and menu. The ambience is lively, energetic and colorful. It has a friendly and youthful vibe.

As it was the grand opening, the place was full and buzzing with people. My family and I sat outdoors. We were all served the traditional Tamarind drink. Their drinks menu offers fresh juices, soft drinks, Laban, tea and coffee.

The menu at Zaroob is simple. It offers a great variety of dishes. It offers good options to both non vegetarians and vegetarians.

We had Fattoush, Hummus, Lebanese Foul,Falafel, Salad, Koshari and Lebanese Bread. The salad and the bread was fresh. It was a great accompaniment to the meal.

Fattoush is made with fried pieces of Arabic bread combined with mixed greens,pomegranate and tomatoes. It had a lemony sour dressing. The fattoush at Zaroob was crunchy and tasty.

Hummus is a popular Levantine dip or side dish. It was creamy and incredibly delicious. Love the hummus at Zaroob.

Lebanese Foul is a dish of cooked fava beans. It was perfectly cooked and went well with Arabic bread.

Falafel is a traditional Middle Eastern food which is popular world over. It is a deep-fried ball made from ground chickpeas. It is served hot. The falafels at Zaroob are crispy and crunchy. They have the perfect golden brown color and taste absolutely  delicious.

Koshari is a traditional Egyptian dish of rice and lentils with pasta, tomato garlic sauce with chickpeas and crispy fried onions. It was scrumptious. A definite must-try dish at Zaroob.

When it comes to desserts I never say no. But we had to go to a birthday party later, so we didn’t have any desserts. Though they have limited desserts in their menu, it looks tempting. Next time I will definitely come back to try the desserts.

We ended our meal with a cup of hot and strong Karak Tea. It was perfectly brewed tea.

The food, the service, the kitschy ambience and the location is good. The food at Zaroob is pocket friendly. So you can expect good food that is reasonable and affordable. Zaroob is one place I don’t mind going back again and again. Definitely recommend it.
