Al Falamanki- A Beautiful Lebanese Restaurant

Last week we went to dine in in a charming & rustic place called Al Falamanki in Dubai.

It’s not only a son’s tribute to his father but also showcases the history & culture of Lebanon & its cuisine. The restaurant has a very interesting story which you can read on their menu. The moment you will enter the place, you will love it.

The decor of Al Falamanki is just like a village. It is a perfect place to sit & play a game of cards or chess & listen to some amazing arabic music in the background.

It has got both indoor & outdoor dining space, the indoor dining area has a retro feel, while the garden area is a perfect place for pleasant winters.

It’s indeed one of the most beautiful restaurants in Dubai with most amazing staff.


Coming back to food …. we went there for dinner …

To start with … they suggested to have their “AYSH LAYSHET TREY”, which includes small plates of carrots, soaked Almonds & Lupine beans. … best to have till you get your order delivered on your table.

Regarding the Drinks, we tried

⁃ Falamanji cocktail ….which had mango, strawberry, banana & passion fruit.

⁃ Mkhafaaji …. which had Strawberry, orange & mixed berries.

⁃ Fresh mint lemonade – my all time fav. drink. & also

⁃ Fresh kiwi Mojito. All four drinks were fresh & delish.


From the Salad & Starters, we ordered

⁃ ‘My Mother Souad’s Fattoush’.. It was made with fresh ingredients & tastes amazing too.

⁃ Hummus with meat & pine nuts- loved their hummus … with lots of meat & nuts 😍

⁃ Kafta Fatteh

⁃ Cheese rolls

⁃ Cherry Kafta…. grilled kafta dipped in yogurt with cherries. Everything was delicious.

The only drawback was that there were no freshly baked bread…to go with the starters. Fresh breads are definitely something that any middle eastern restaurant serves to enhance the taste further. Other than this everything was awesome.


In the Main course, we tried

⁃ Lamb Chops- served with grilled vegetables & potato fries

⁃ Almond Chicken escalope – scrumptious crispy & juicy

⁃ Kashkaval cheese & Turkey Saj…. was just ok for us.

⁃ Sizzling birds…. tiny Lebanese birds grilled in sumac & pomegranate molasses. .. the only thing which we would never want to taste again or May be our taste buds didn’t accept the taste of these grilled birds.


Now .. most important discussion…. Desserts

⁃ Gateau Wmm Anis- a very delicious dates cakes with your choice of ice cream.

⁃ O Kindness on Baklava- freshly baked hot baklava served with a scoop of ice cream … totally amazing. Highly recommendable.


To end the dinner perfectly – Shisha & Moroccan Tea

⁃ we tried two flavors … Al Falamanki special & Double Apple … I must say … they had amazing sheesha ..


Note –

Al Falamanki also has a small space dedicated to sells some products from Lebanon. Check out that corner for sure.
