Manoushe Street, JAFZA

by Jannat & Pawan Manghnani on November 23rd, 2016

About

It started in the humble village homes of loving mothers preparing breakfast for their children, something to eat on their way to school. That is the story of how the manoushe tradition began.

What started as homemade food eventually reached the bustling street corner bakeries, making the manoushe available to all, a staple authentic Lebanese food, to be enjoyed at any time of the day. The simple & traditional manoushe is now becoming a modern day favorite, a nostalgic reminder of a mother's love.

Review

​We were invited to the Jebel Ali branch for a tasting, and since my wife and I work in the vicinity, it was no issue for us to head there one day for a lunch! The funny thing was the outlet people were not aware about the invite, so obviously they weren't being accommodating at first, but after a few calls to the manager and some more back and forth calls, those people were convinced and we sat down finally eager to try them out, to especially try the healthy Lebanese they claim to serve!

Ambiance

​It is located in a food court, so sadly it does not have an ambiance of its own to talk about. We did realize how tough the competition would be with at least 6-7 more food outlets lined up in the same room, including one more Lebanese place. Of course like all other F&B outlets they have a dedicated section for customers they are catering to! 

Beverages

Drinks were an essential part of the whole experience because they were SO good! 

Minty Rose Water:

The description read "classical Lebanese" and we knew we had to try it! I'm a big fan of rose flavored drinks, so this was a given to be liked. It is actually really refreshing and something you do not really get everywhere! 
​Fresh Yogurt: 

What they actually meant was Laban, so yea we had this because my wife ordered it, in the bid of probiotics and digestive enzymes. Anyways, if you like laban, you will most definitely like this too! 

Food

Hummus:

Creamy, and well flavored, I am almost always stunned about how Hummus can be differently made, with a distinct flavor difference. I can easily say I was famished but this one was really one of those really good batches of Hummus that both of us enjoyed eating, especially in that food court, where food choices are extremely commercial. 
Spicy Sujuk Pizza:
Spicy sujuk on a special tomato sauce topped with cherry tomatoes, green pepper and three cheese melt on top.

"Lebanese pizza with a lot of pizazz"
is how I would clarify this goodness. The bread was just about the right thickness, and the topping was not greasy or overdone at all. The spicy sujuk which is basically a beef sausage crumbled on top was not exactly spicy enough for our taste but then, I guess they cater to a lot of people with different spice thresholds and it rather be a bit bland than over spiced because the latter cannot be rectified! Between the two of us, I ate the most of it and I don't think I was dying of a binge coma. I was just satiated. That is an amazing sign for sure!
Not Any Ceaser Salad:

Sliced chicken tenders marinated with herbs and thyme on a bed of crisp lettuce leaves, served with a side of croutons and homemade caesar dressing and then finally topped with parmesan! My wife ordered this and she said she is very partial to a caesar salad served in a particular coffee house and nothing ever matches to that, but she said this one could have well taken the well deserved second place! She said the lettuce to dressing ratio was on fleek and so was the fact that there was enough chicken for almost every bite of lettuce. The dressing was easily spreadable however she prefers dipping rather than dousing!

Verdict

Man'oushe Street is an upgraded version of classic Lebanese food, and yes it is definitely a healthier version than many of its counterparts! I really appreciate the fact that healthy food doesn't necessarily mean salads and water, normal food can be calorie controlled and healthy too! Man'oushe street has several branches all over town, so if you spot an outlet, do make your way there without thinking twice-health nut or not!
