Shorabit Adas شوربة عدس

There is a chill in the air, so we are going to welcome it, with this warm and nourishing soup in hand. This yellow lentil soup seasoned with cumin, onion, Aleppo red pepper, black pepper and garnished with fresh coriander and a slice of lemon, is probably the most popular soup in Syria. |V|

Jollof Rice 

This West African dish is full of bold and harmonious flavors, with a unique sweet and subtle spicy taste. The rice is slow cooked in a rich vegetable, tomato and red pepper broth. It is a staple in every Nigerian celebration, and there is no party without Jollof Rice.

[meat option]

Baked Chicken

The chicken is marinated in a fresh mix of cilantro, green onions, and green pepper. This zesty green baked chicken pairs perfectly with the sweet and spiciness of the rice. 

[vegetarian option] 

Plantain and Black Eyed Peas

The smell and sight of frying plantain is one of life’s simple pleasures. These little pockets of golden goodness are well known as Dodo in Nigeria. For this vegetarian option, the Jollof rice is studded with black eyed peas, and topped fried plantain. 


Muhammara  المحمره

The farmer’s market are bursting with ripe colorful produce. This rich, complex and slightly spicy dip showcases roasted red peppers with rich tomatoes, walnuts, pomegranate molasses and dried Aleppo red pepper. Originally from Aleppo this dip can now be found in countless variations throughout the Levant. Served with a selection of fresh vegetable crudite and pita chips.


Tamaria تمرية

This is a broad term for a range of sweets made from dates (“tamar” is date in Arabic). These nutrient dense balls combine dates with crushed biscuits and are rolled with shredded coconut, pistachio, and cocoa powder. A perfect finish.
