This canteen-style spot could easily blend into the scenery as part of the food court at Mercato Mall, but it has a speciality sweet treat that sets it apart. Brought from the streets of Beirut to a stall in a shopping mall in Dubai, the ka’ak is a sweetly-baked sesame bread that is a mealtime staple in Lebanon. The national dish comes with a range of fillings that can serve as a starter, main course and a dessert. Service is swift and delivered with a smile. Kick off with an akawi cheese ka’ak that is melt-in-the-mouth good. The spicy chicken fajita is crammed with tender morsels of meat lathered in a hot sauce that is a sizzling success. For dessert, try the peanut butter and jam ka’ak, which is great for the kids, and older customers, too.
