Mazaher-A True Taste Of Lebanon


Mazaher is one of the new Lebanese restaurants in Dubai. It offers authentic Lebanese cuisine.  I was invited to their Iftar yesterday. Having never been to Mazaher before, I was quite excited naturally. 

Conveniently located at the Convention Centre Office Tower, Trade Centre area-Mazaher is a gorgeous venue with a blend of traditional and contemporary decor. The interiors are bright, colorful and glamorous. The whole set up has been done tastefully- from the potted plants on the walls, colorful lamps on the floor to well set tables and beautiful mosaic work. 


The restaurant is divided into two areas- cafe with deli style counter and casual dining set up and fine dining style restaurant with a small stage for live music. 

You can expect the amazing Lebanese hospitality and welcome. After being seated, I went through their menu which was extensive. They offer breakfast, lunch and dinner. They offer a wide range of salads, starters, cold and hot mezze, grill, mains and desserts. Their drinks menu offers good variety too.

As it was Iftar, we were served from their Iftar set menu. The drinks, starters, cold and hot mezze, grills and mains were served to our table. For desserts there was a buffet counter. Their Iftar set menu is priced at AED 135 per person. For Suhoor you can order from their a la carte menu. 


For drinks, they serve traditional Ramadan drinks like  Jallab, Tamer Hindi, Kamardin and Laban Aryan.

Our table came with Iftar essentials like dates and dry fruits. We skipped having soup and straightaway opted for salads and cold mezze.


Salads and Cold Mezze

Hummus 

Moutabel 

Tabbouleh

Fattoush 

Mohammara 

Shanklish 

Stuffed vine leaves

Koshari 

Pickled Vegetables 

Each and every dish was outstanding. Everything was made fresh and tasted terrific. My favorites were Shanklish and Koshari,  a definite must-try. 


Hot Mezze 

• Spinach Fatayer 

Falalfel

Cheese Sambousek 

The hot mezze was of the regular kind, that you get in all the Lebanese restaurants in Dubai. As I am a vegetarian, I could only have this. The non vegetarians were offered Meat Kibbeh.

Mains

Being a vegetarian, I had to skip the mix grill platter that had a variety of kebabs, grill and Shish tawook. 


We were served Mixed veggies in a tomato gravy, Fatteh and Vermicelli rice for our mains. 

The mixed veggies in the tomato gravy had well balanced flavors and tasted great. It went very well with the vermicelli rice.

The Fatteh that was made with roasted pita, chickpeas and yogurt was absolutely delicious. I wish I had more space in my tummy to do justice for this wonderful dish.

We were also served freshly baked Arabic bread.

Desserts 


There were the usual Arabic sweets like Baklawa, Warbat Bil Ashta, Katayef, Umm Ali, Date pudding, Kunafa and freshly cut fruit slices. 

But the star of the dessert counter was the different layered Nougat. The giant round slabs of nougat was put on a kind of shawarma grill and we could carve slices from it. I tried all the varieties and they were deliciously divine. No wonder, it was everybody’s favorite. 

Overall, I had a wonderful dining experience. The food, the service and the ambience was great. I would love to come back again for breakfast or lunch after Ramadan.
