If your looking for a restaurant/cafe that serves traditional Lebanese Cuisine for Iftar with either the option of a Set Menu or A La Carte Menu, then Cafe Blanc is a place you must try this Ramadan. I went to the Cafe’s location in Dubai Marina Mall. Reservations are not necessary, but if you’re going with a big group and want to be safe, call and reserve a table.
In a Nutshell: Great Service, Not Over-Priced, and the Food is Good 🙂
The Set Menu Contains:
1) A Ramadan Shot + Dates
2) Your Choice of Soup
3) A Choice of 6 Mezze
4) Your Choice of Main Dish: Either Kharouf Mehshe or the Daily Special:
Sunday – Moujadara w Salata ; Monday – Siyadiyeh ; Tuesday – Sheikh El Mehchi ; Wednesday – Shish Barak w Riz ; Thursday – Dawood Bacha w Riz ; Friday – Riz a Djej ; Saturday – Samkeh Harra
5) Kellah Ramadan
6) Choice of Sharab / Soft Drink
7) Coffee / Tea
I found the servings to be perfect. They aren’t huge, so not a lot of food is left over, and you don’t feel stuffed once you’re done with your meal. I tend to avoid restaurants that over do / over size their servings and set menu options, because a lot of food remains uneaten.
