Restaurant, Middle Eastern, Lebanese
Meaning “window” in Lebanese Arabic, Shababeek offers a glimpse into Middle Eastern fine dining beside the Al Qasba Canal. Modern Lebanese dishes are a speciality here, albeit with a solid grounding in tradition. Families are well catered for with its excellent children’s menu. While the service can be a little variable, the food makes up for it. Popular dishes include the soujouk (Lebanese sausages sautéed in garlic, lemon and coriander), lamb kebabs and batata harra (fried cubes of potato tossed in lemon, olive oil and garlic). Between October and March, when the weather is a little cooler, enjoy canal-side seating outdoors.
