Last Friday we didn’t go for the usual Friday brunch instead we had a late and laidback lunch. As it had been quite sometime since we had Arabic/Middle Eastern food we chose Al Mashawi Al Halabya to dine.
Al Mashawi Al Halabya is also known as Aleppo Grills and it serves authentic Middle Eastern food. They specialize in Syrian cuisine.
After the popularity of their Sharjah branch, Al Mashawi opened a branch in Garhoud, Dubai. We visited their Dubai branch for lunch.
The restaurant is massive with two floors of dining space. They have a separate smoking and non-smoking area. In the smoking area they offer Shisha. There is a kids play area and a prayer room.
The arabesque interiors of the restaurant looks stunning and regal. It is a family friendly restaurant with ample seating area. During the weekend they also have live music.
After being seated we ordered their freshly prepared Orange Juice and Watermelon Juice. Their menu is vast and varied and offers lots of variety. Being vegetarians we couldn’t try their popular grills and meat based dishes. But we were satisfied with their veg options.
The restaurant is open from 10am till 2:10am and serves breakfast, lunch and dinner. It is a great venue for family and friends to share a meal.
We ordered Hummus, Beetroot Mutabal, Baba Ghanouj, Muhammara, Labneh & Garlic, Armenian Salad, Motabket Eggplant, Spicy Potatoes, Falafel, Cheese Roll and Manakeesh Cheese & Zaatar. Our food came along with freshly made Arabic Bread.
Each and every dish was fresh, flavorful and utterly delicious. We loved both their cold and hot mezze. Writing about their drool-worthy food makes me crave it.
For dessert we had the scrumptious Cheese Kunafa. We ended our delicious lunch with the aromatic and refreshing pot of Moroccan Tea.
Our dining experience at Al Mashawi Al Halabya was fabulous. The food, the drinks, the atmosphere, the service and the hospitality was great.
