All around the world, muslims are celebration the month of Ramadan with fasting, prayers and fabulous late-night meals known as the Ifthar (“break-fast”). Chef Mary Freij, drawing on her Palestinian and Lebanese heritage, has put together a delicious menu of Middle Eastern dishes that would be at home on many an Ifthar table. Join us for a taste of this delicious tradition.
A luscious, smoky dip of roasted eggplant dip enriched with creamy tahini, lemon juice and spices; served with fresh pita bread
A delicate but flavourful dish of fish and rice rarely seen on restaurant menus. Flaky, lightly battered pan-fried haddock with caramelized onions, served over rice infused in Arabic spices, and topped with butter-fried pine nuts, a wedge of lemon and a side of tahini sauce.
Also available #vegan with chickpeas and arnabeet maqli (fried cauliflower)
Halaweh bel Jebn
A beloved and delicious Levantine sweet; an dough layer of semolina and sugar is mixed with a stretchy, chewy cheese (like a akawi or mozzarella), then rolled around a cool, cream filling before being soaked in an orange blossom syrup, and decorated with crushed pistachios and/or crushed rose petals.
