Kibbeh is one of the the most famous of all Syrian dishes… I’ve been told that there are over 20 kinds in Damascus alone! These traditional small fried kibbehs, little football-shaped fritters of bulgur dough with flavourful stuffings, together with warm yellow lentil soup is a classic combination.
[Beef] Kibbeh Maklieh bil Lahmeh كبة مقلية باللحمة
Bulgur wheat, finely ground halal beef and spices are combined and formed into small football-shaped dumplings to be stuffed with a spiced mixture of ground beef and toasted pine nuts. They are then fried to give them a crispy, dark auburn exterior.
[Vegetarian] Kibbeh Maklieh
This is a more unique vegetarian kibbeh with a filling of chopped potato, mushrooms, nuts, spices and pomegranate seeds.
Shorabit Adas شوربة عدس
This yellow lentil soup flavoured with cumin, onion, Aleppo pepper, black pepper and garnished with fresh coriander, is probably the most popular soup in Syria. It is an essential and traditional dish during Ramadan, when it is served hot with a slice of lemon.
Salatet Jarjeer سلطة جرجير
A refreshing salad of peppery arugula with onions and fresh pomegranate seeds, and an apple cider vinegar, lemon & olive oil vinaigrette.
Kato Al-Hind كاتو جوز الهند
A semolina-based cake with sugar syrup, similar to namoura or basbousa, but the addition of eggs, milk and lots of grated coconut gives it an added richness; garnished with pistachio.

Newcomer Kitchen is a new project that invites groups of Syrian refugee women to use our kitchen to cook traditional Syrian dishes in a fun, social setting. Meals are prepared and packaged, and then sold online for pickup or delivery to pay for all the ingredients and provide an honorarium for the cooks.
We also offer 1 “Guest Cook” spot to help/hang out in the kitchen, learn the recipes and join the ladies for family meal on Wednesday (10:30-4:30). We are asking for a $50 donation for this, which will go to topping up the $ we have to share with the cooks. This is available for purchase online, on a first-come, first-served basis.
Proceeds from the sale of meals goes directly to the newcomer cooks. However this does not cover the costs of the enormous amount of behind-the-scenes coordination required to keep this project going. You can help the Newcomer Kitchen project directly and our vision of expanding this model to support more women in more neighbourhoods!
Help us take this idea into any restaurant kitchen, in any city in the world!
