We all know there’s no shortage if you’re after Lebanese fare in Dubai, but with a reputation for tasty, home-style food in its native Lebanon, we’re happy that BouBouffe is in the city. The brasserie, set up in Beirut in 1976, has a casual vibe, although it is bright. Very bright. It features a a decent, but not overwhelming, selection of hot and cold mezze, with all the big hitters you’d expect. There’s an extensive shwarma and grills menu too, as well as specials. The menu is fairly meat-heavy, but there’s enough choice for vegetarians to leave satisfied. We recommend the cheese rolls, either baked or fried. The fattoush’s sharp lemon dressing is a hit and the thick hummus topped with chickpeas goes down a treat. We’re disappointed that the bread isn’t made in house, and while that’s not uncommon, BouBouffe’s reputation would suggest more.
