Al Reef Lebanese Bakery

  • 2

Time Out Says

This legendary Lebanese bakery is famed for serving up some of the best manakish in town, which you can still get your hands on for less than Dhs10. Try zaatar (a Middle Eastern thyme and sesame-based paste), spicy tomato, spinach or gloriously gooey cheese – whatever you choose is made right before your eyes in a blistering hot brick oven. Whether you’re stopping in at the Al Safa branch off Al Wasl Road or Karama branch off Zabeel Road, expect to find cars pulling up out front and shouting an order out of the window, before making off with their breakfast, lunch or very (very) late-night snack. Perfect after a wander along the Dubai Canal or around Karama’s notorious handbag souk.
