Zaroob, Trade Centre

by Jannat & Pawan Manghnani on July 8th, 2016

About

A concept inspired by the traditional street food vendors found around the Levant region. Zaroob captures the best and most authentic aspects of wholesome, simple cooking and brings the atmosphere of a theatric ambience and history of Arab street food to a modern ambience.

The double storey space houses live cooking stations, open kitchens and a variety of decoration from the Arab world so that diners can enjoy the sights, sounds and smells that are experienced when walking through a traditional street or market in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Palestine and Egypt. 

Zaroob stands out from other restaurants in the area due to its eye catching unique design and interior decor. The relaxed ambience provides a youthful vibrance with a touch of nostalgia.

Review

Our very close friends have just moved back from London and we couldn't have been more thrilled by that! So obviously we decoded to meet over dinner and unanimously chose Zaroob as we wanted to eat Lebanese! Zaroob has built a brand name for itself by consistently providing quality Lebanese food and their ambiance and service are commendable as well! 

Ambiance

Bright and colourful- just as we like it! They have an up stairs area too which is quite spacious and convenient.. If the weather permitted we would have chosen to sit outside but with the 100% humidity- we didn't want to sweat through our meal! This place is very kid friendly because of its quirky ambiance and the fact that there is no sheesha allowed! 

Food

Hummous:
The usual suspect. What Lebanese dinner can be complete without some kick-ass hummous? We always boast about the health benefits it has and then end up ordering it twice because its a favourite amongst the kids as well as the adults! Their version is a classic with the recquired components in the right proportions! A must eat when you are here! 
Chicken Shawarma:
Okay it might not be the best one around, but its definitely one of the things we wanted to try at Zaroob especially since we like chicken! Our only complaint is that it gets too bready and theres not enough sauce in it! Though we added some tabasco to it and made it work. 
Lahem Ajeen Man'oushe:
One of my top favourites, This is a dish for all the lamb lovers. Its basically lamb mince served on top of a pita bread. Squeeze some lemon on top and it's magic! The bread becomes crispy on the crust which adds a wonderful texture to the dish! We absolutely loved it!
Beef Shawarma:
Chewy but juicy- Thats all we can say when we think back about the shawerma! Beef in general is not chewy if cooked well, but I think it was a miss the other day! It had amazing flavours with the sauces and the salad and wasn't as bready either! Just the meat was a big let down..
Fattoush:
Arabian salad with lettuce, cucumber, tomatoes, fried/baked pita drenched in sumac and pomegranate juice along with some mint and onions providing their strong aromas.. It especially refreshing in the summer and is one salad I feel I can eat as a meal as opposed to forcefully having it on my plate in the name of "greens".
Chicken & Mushroom:
Trying to be carb-free for at least one dish, we opted for their best seller chicken and mushroom served in a skillet as opposed to it served in a wrap. The dish was like any other chicken stir-fry with tons of veggies added to it and some sprinkled pomegranate to I guess make it Lebanese? It was a nice alternative for sure someone trying to avoid carbs..
Fruit Cocktail:
This was the biggest and the most "different" looking fruit cocktail i've seen! It was sadly laden with sugary puree inside and some cut-fruits. The kids loved it, but we were seriously worried about our sugar-levels! Nope, not ordering this ever again!

Verdict

Open 27x7x365, Zaroob is a boon for people who love Lebanese food. There are a few hits and misses, but overall its a good experience to be there with some good company! There is plenty parking outside and somehow you always get some space without any reservation except on Thursdays when things do get a little crazy with the long ques.
