If you are in Dubai and craving for some authentic Lebanese cuisine with a delightful international twist to suit every taste bud, head straight for the Boubouffe, a warm, chic, casual dining Bistro. The Bistro, located strategically on the bustling Sheikh Zayed road near the Aspin towers, has both indoor and outdoor sitting options. Though outside may not be the best place to be in the sweltering Dubai summer, it’s a romantic setting in pleasant cool nights.
The minimalistic modern décor inside is very inviting. The ever smiling and efficient staffs were ready with suggestions for Buzzingtales regarding the best drinks and dishes in the house.
We loved the tangy sweetness of the Jellab garnished with pine seeds. The freshness of mango drink was refreshing. All of Boubouffe’s fruit juices are made from fresh fruit and have no artificial sweeteners. The bistro is a true haven for fitness addicts as Healthy and Fresh are of paramount significance in almost every dish in their menu. With some exceptions like the spicy fried potatoes- that by the way we loved and hogged on. Kids can expect a scrumptious feast with the thoughtful kids menu featuring delectable like Spaghetti Milanese, Spaghetti Bolognese, Chicken Escalope, Mini Burger and Fresh hand cut fries.
The Mezze includes numerous cold and hot choices like Moudaradara, Lamb tongue in hot sauce, Fatayer with spinach, Lamb spleen, Kabis, Fattouch, Moutabal, Tabbouleh, Hindbeh, Raheb, Bilal, Hommos with meat and pines, Kebbeh, spiced potato, Grilled Halloumi, Soujouk in clay, Samboussek with meat, Chicken liver grilled, Makanek in clay and more.
The main course dishes, charcoal grills, desserts, ice creams, salad and soup also had exhaustive options. The influences of the French culture on the Achrafieh region of Beruit are evident in the name ‘BouBouffe’.Boubouffe derived from the French word Buffet means FOOD.
The daily specials like Moghrabieh and Stuffed Zucchini in yogurt for Tuesday & Kebbeh Chiche Barak with rice and stuffed eggplant with Vermicelli Rice on Thursday give a reason to come back each day for new delicacies.
