Time Out Says
Al Manchab has a wide ranging menu featuring local Khaleeji favourites with a modern twist. While we’re trying to select our menu favourites, we are offered deliciously cool and ripe dates.
We start with the beetroot hummus which is sprinkled with walnuts and garnished with a sprig of mint. It’s accompanied by the zaatar bread which arrives steaming hot.
The ultimate hipster favourite, avocado, comes in the form of a creamy labneh, flanked by thin slices of avocado on either side and a healthy sprinkling of pine nuts. The zaatar bread soaks it up perfectly. The dish has a delightful tanginess and a rich depth to it and by now, we are quite stuffed.
The grilled sea bass arrives is incredibly fresh and lightly spiced with curry powder and garam masala, accompanied by a fiery eggplant pickle which adds some heat and spiciness to the mix. The lamb machboos is fantastically plated. The shank of lamb rises mightily from the bone from a sea of fragrant rice, topped with sprigs of rosemary.
Dining here isn’t cheap, but the exceedingly scrumptious food makes this a must-try spot.
