Wafi Gourmet Dubai Reviews
Wafi Gourmet - excellent Lebanese Cuisine Mar 29, 2013
I always liked lebanese food, which starts with Salads, Mezze which include hummus, tabouli, and other stuff... the list goes on..
The first time I went to Wafi Gourmet was in 2006 at Wafi Mall in Dubai. Back then it was called 'Goodies'. I stopped by to take a peek and could not resist the urge to book a table for two.
Apart from a selection of large main courses, you get many options in grilled meats and seafood.
It doesn't stop there - there is a fruit and vegetable section where it seems someone with good taste selected high-quality stuff, *MUCH* better than the best selection you can find at supermarkets. At least that's what I observed.
The pickles and olives section had a distinctly better selection, all presented in wooden barrels.
The herbs section featured various herbs for infusions, teas, etc, again better than what you get elsewhere.
Sweets and Desserts - again better than what I had seen elsewhere, but choices are personal.
Fruits, pickles, sweets, herbs - all sold by weight, can be bought and packed to take with you.
The seating area was both indoors and outdoors (for shisha smoking).
Selecting what to order ... was time consuming. I honestly wanted to eat everything but since my stomach (like most people) has limited space, we ordered a mixed grill and a large serving of raw vegetables (lettuce, cucumbers, tomato, rocket, mint) along with olives and pickles, and a tall order of a Watermelon+strawberry shake, and of course a large bottle of Perrier.
Loved every minute of it.
It's a busy place, so don't think the waiters and waitresses are ignoring you. Once you talk to them, they offer great advice and warm treatment.
Wafi Gourmet is in Wafi Mall, and Dubai Mall. Check www.wafigourmet.com
