Lebanese concept Al Falamanki has opened its first international venue in Dubai near Four Seasons Resort Dubai at Jumeirah Beach.
Named after Beirut restaurant and café, Khalil Al Falamanki, the concept was established in 2008 by restaurateurs Tony Ramy, Mario Jr, Haddad and investors Sheikh Najib Abou Hamze and Mohamad Siblani.
Inspired by Lebanese wrestler Khalil Al Falamanki, the Dubai venue has a shrine dedicated to him with his life story depicted on a wall, and some of his personal belongings on display.
The concept is reminiscent of the Lebanese capital during the 1960s.
The Ramadan menu features appetisers such as hashed chicken, summac potatoes, cheese rolls, and fried kibbe.
On Al Falamanki’s a La Carte specialties are ‘My Mother Souad’s Fattoush’, made with special baked bread and pomegranate molasses; ‘Khalil’s Saj’ thyme topped with a cheese mix and kbaibet in yogurt mixed with garlic, pine nuts and coriander.
