Restaurant name and location: Mezza House, Downtown Boulevard
Atmosphere: Buzzing – even on a weekday! They even host karaoke nights. Felt like I was in Syria, till I saw the Burj Khalifa 🙂
What they say:
Mezza House is one of the most unique restaurant concepts in Dubai. Featuring authentic cuisines from the Levant to your appetite. Representing Lebanese, Palestinian, Syrian and Jordanian food culture all amidst a contemporary modern interior setting.
What to order:
-Mashawi (of course. they melt in your mouth.)
-Dates Rocca salad (This has got to be one of the best salads I’ve had. Rocca, dates, pomegranate and walnuts – wow.)
-Garlic cheese rolls (if you love cheese rolls and garlic…)
-Yalanji (vine leaves)
-Mafroukeh bil Ishta (fresh delicious ishta – arabic dessert)
Service: Great! Lots of staff, and they’re quite alert. The manager, Roland was great too.
What I loved:
-They have valet with a fixed fee of AED10 – anyone who has been to restaurants in Downtown knows having this service is a gem.
-Just really good Arabic food. Lots of Lebanese restaurants focus on their branding and less on their food. Mezza House isn’t exactly fancy, but you can count on good food.
-They serve Shisha and have a great outdoor seating area.
-They host Karaoke night once a week.
-They have a vast range of mocktails.
-For the mommies, they have a kids menu.
What I didn’t love as much:
-The seating isn’t comfortable, but it’s no fancy place.
Bill for two: AED 200-300
