In a nutshell
Massaad is a Lebanese institution, a Zahle one to be exact. The place offers Lebanese mezze and bbq with "Tabliet Massaad" as their main specialty.
I have only been to the JBR branch. Massaad is a tiny 4 tables restaurant with a very cozy, casual setting.
You go to Massaad for two things: the shish taouk tablieh and the fattoush. Everything else is optional.
- Chicken shish taouk tablieh: This is hands down the best shish taouk sandwich you'll have. The chicken taouk is wrapped in a crispy pita bread with olive oil and sesame seeds on top. Hummus and garlic and french fries are all served on the same plate.
- Fattoush: Pomegranate molasses and pomegranate seeds is the secret to Massaad's delicious fattoush.
AED 75 - 150
