A new kid on the block in Al Barsha ….
A little trip out in the dark the other night revealed, literally on my door step a new Cafe of some description. I could clearly see tables and a brick oven. The next day I was straight over to see what was going on. As it happened it was the first day of opening for Furn Beik. Once inside it became apparent that we had a Lebanese eatery right under our noses …..
The outlet is bright and well decorated, there were a few tables of men (assuming guests of the owners) tucking into an array of Lebanese dishes. Plenty of hummus and piping hot bread in baskets. We took no time checking the menu out, there is a huge selection of wraps and a some great grill items. I opted for the beef tenderloin skewer, grilled tenderloin cubes wrapped with hummus, grilled onions and pickles. Absolutely delicious, the meat was beautifully tender. My husband chose the chicken skewers, chicken breast cubes served with pickles, garlic paste and french fries. Again the meat was cooked to perfection.
I think its safe to say that I am no expert when it comes to Lebanese food, however I am fond of a good hummus, todays hummus with tahineh was outstanding, nothing like any other hummus I have had, the consistency was creamy. The child wasted no time tucking into it! Furn Beik offers a few things I have never come across before like their sujuck and cheese wrap and keshek, safe to say we will be back to try them out. We did try the Armenian minced beef wrap, needs more chili but a very tasty dish indeed. There are a few mentions of Armenian dishes on this menu as this is where Chef hails from. We for one are delighted to welcome Furn Beik to the neighbourhood, and wish them all the success they deserve. Currently there are only 5 tables in the outlet, trust me that will be up to 8 before the end of this year. For the money conscience reader, our entire meal came in at less than 100 dhs, very affordable.
Furn Beik is located in Al Barsha Star building which is right next door to The Chelsea Ramada Hotel. There isn’t much parking outside but there is plenty opposite. At the moment the guys are working on their website and social media, and deliveries will be starting in the next week or so. You can call them on 04 347 0607
