Al Falamanki Lebanese Restaurant In Jumeirah 

Al Falamanki
Last month I stumbled upon a charming and rustic place called Al Falamanki in Dubai. It gives you the vibe of a quaint little village with it’s serene atmosphere and beautiful garden. The moment you enter the place, you know that you will have a memorable time, it reminded me of my grandparents house.

Located opposite Four Seasons Resort in Jumeirah Beach Road, Jumeirah, Al Falamanki is an authentic Lebanese restaurant from Beirut, Lebanon. 

The settings of Al Falamanki is just like a village and it has a homey and laid back feel to it. It is a perfect venue to sit and play a game of cards or backgammon, while listening to great Arabic artists playing in the background. 

It offers both indoor and outdoor dining space, the indoor dining area has a retro vibe. For the pleasant Dubai winters, the garden area is a perfect place for al Fresco dining. And that’s what we did.

When you are at the restaurant, I suggest that you read the awe inspiring story of Mr.Falamanki, the person after whom the restaurant is named.

Al Falamanki recently launched a brunch that happens every Saturday from 11am-2pm in their garden. This Lebanese brunch is more like a late breakfast or an early lunch offering a good selection of delicious Lebanese cuisine.

Dining in the garden
We started our brunch with their refreshing glass of juice. Apart from fresh juices,Laban, and lemonade they also offered traditional Arabic drinks like Jallab, Qamardeen and Tamar Hindi.

The buffet table in the garden offered some of the popular Arabic salads and cold mezze. Must-tries were the Fattoush, Shanklish, beetroot tahina, carrot tahina , Hachim style hummus, moutabel, labneh with garlic and hummus fatteh with yogurt.

Not to be missed is the freshly made bread on the spot. We tried the Manakish, zaatar bread and the delicious Saj bread.

For desserts we had Halva, jello with fruits and Moughli with mixed nuts. 

They have a great selection of shisha too. 

Overall, we had a pleasant experience. The Saturday brunch in Al Falamanki offers a good but limited selection. We liked the fact that the food was light, fresh and delicious.
