Shish Barak (32 AED) is a traditional Lebanese dish, made of tiny meat dumplings cooked in a plain yogurt stew with Armenian spices served with a tangy sauce. This was one of the highlights from our dining. I have never tried such delicious dumplings before. The subtle aromas from the mint, cilantro and garlic were just flawless.
Pakora Chicken (34 AED) is a fusion of Mexican and Indian cuisine. Crispy chicken bites were wrapped in warm saj tortillas accompanied with spicy lime pickle dip. We loved this one, esp. the texture, crunch and ingredients were so fresh, the saj tortilla was really really soft. This one is one of our favorites and a MUST try!!

Buffalo Chicken (34 AED) Spicy Buffalo chicken Saj wrap was appetizing, covered in ranch sauce, fresh lettuce and tomatoes, though we still adore the pakora chicken more.
