Touted as one of the best Lebanese restaurants in Dubai, dining at Al Nafoorah comes with a real sense of occasion. Located at Jumeirah Emirates Towers, this opulent dining destination has quite a few prestigious accolades under its belt and the fact that it is always packed with diners, even during lunch hours is a testament to its superior culinary prowess.
Their menu is replete with authentic Lebanese preparations that are executed with flair. Another plus of dining here is their great service. The staff is attentive and prompt.
So, if you can’t zero in on the best options to try from their extensive selection, just ask your servers as they are quick with recommendations depending on what you're in the mood for.
From Mezze to Grills, and from Fattoush to Moutabel, everything on their carefully curated menu is delicious but it’s their Hot & Cold Mezzes that they are most popular for. The Hot Mezze, a meal in itself, comes with a classic selection of light bites such as mellow pieces of Lamb, Batata Harra (spicy potatoes), Fried Kibbeh (fried Kebab like dish made of ground meat and seasoning), Spinach Fatayer (savory pies stuffed with spinach, onions, and other delicious ingredients), Sambousek (Lebanese meat pie), and Cheese Rolls.
Whereas the Cold Mezze, an equally tempting option, is served with Bread along with Shanklish (grated pieces of cheese mixed with some herbs with a drizzle of olive oil), Baba Ghannouj (mashed cooked eggplant, olive oil, lemon juice, and tahini), and Mohamarah (velvety silk paste of walnut with a hint of chili).
We also recommend trying their special hummus. It’s some of the dreamiest and creamiest in the city and guaranteed one of the best you’ll ever have!
Their main course meat preparations cooked on a charcoal grill, just like their appetizers, retain simplicity and unmistakable flavor, an exemplary sample of that is their melt-in-your-mouth Lambchops served with a side of fries. Our Must-try recommendations also include Grilled Chicken and Summon Fillet with Chili sauce. Both the dishes are cooked to perfection.
End your wholesome meal with their sinfully indulgent Bakalava that you can pair with their Moroccon Tea to tie it all together. The best part about dining here is that their authentic preparations are never overcomplicated, and as such, Al Nafoorah is a great example of how simplicity can be genius.
