Sambusek, the Lebanese restaurant at Rosewood Abu Dhabi, has launched a new dining concept that will see its head chef serve your meal straight to you.
Designed to be a “personable culinary journey with a homey feel”, At Home with Chef Emad is a traditional Lebanese meal cooked by Sambusek head chef Emad Zalloum while overlooking the Arabian Gulf.
The menu starts with a variety of cold mezze including Sambusek’s signature smoked hummus, mutabbal, labneh hammda, fattoush, tabbouleh and a mixed organic platter. This is followed by an assortment of hot mezze, which includes chicken liver, makanek, cheese manakish, and prawns Provencal. These will be served with Lebanese bread freshly baked in a wooden oven.
For the main course, guests have two options: charcoal mixed grill and ‘Noah’s Ark’. The mixed grills consist of a wide selection of lamb chops, lamb shish kebab, lamb kofta, chicken shish taouk, and grilled vegetables.
One of the highlights of the evening is Chef Emad’s own creation – the ‘Noah’s Ark’, which features a lamb shank cooked for 11 hours at 60 degrees Celsius on a bed of saffron rice and a selection of steamed vegetables inside a pumpkin.
The At Home with Chef Emad experience is available every Thursday evening for a minimum of four guests per table. A 24-hour prior booking is needed. The set menu is priced at AED 235 per person, inclusive of Lebanese grapes and beverages.
