Jordanian restaurant, Azkadenya, is set to open in Abu Dhabi’s Marina Mall this June.
The first branch opened in Amman in 2011 and the Marina Mall venue marks the company’s third outpost in the UAE and first in the country’s capital.
Azkadenya blends a modern approach to traditional Arabic dishes with quirky interiors evoking the 1950s – 1990s in the Middle East.
Breakfast items include manaeesh, chakchouka, fresh fruit juices and smoothies.
For lunch and dinner, the menu includes fried kibbeh, falafel sliders, shawarma enchiladas, ‘al fahem’ – a shawarma stick served over charcoal – fakkharat (traditional Arabic cooking pots), and traditional Jordanian mansaf.
Arabic desserts have been reinvented, with sticky date pudding, Nutella banana monousheh and umm ali Azkadenya style some of the dishes available.
Azkadenya is open seven days a week from 10am to 12am.
