Set to open in Q2 2023 in the Gulan Mall – Erbil, Habib Beirut’s new branch will serve traditional Lebanese cuisine, including a large selection of breakfast items, mezze and barbecue. Guests will be invited to experience the rich heritage of Lebanese cuisine through a diverse menu of traditional Lebanese appetizers, main courses and desserts, all with a modern twist. Visitors can also enjoy specialty items, such as shanklish, em Habib tabbouleh, falafel and Habib’s renowned sandwich that’s packed with Lebanese flavors.
The concept began with an elderly man named Habib, who was renowned by locals for his pickles and homemade dairy products. News of his outstanding goods quickly sprea, and it wasn’t long before restaurants started serving his dishes: shanklish, hommos, kibbeh, as well as his Lebanese pastries. Forty years later, Habib Beirut was born, and today, the brand name is synonymous with authentic Lebanese food cooked with passion and a twist.
In an exclusive statement to Hospitality News ME, Elie Bassil, the founder and COO of Habib Beirut, said: “We decided to introduce Habib’s cuisine to the world and develop Habib Beirut as a Lebanese food ambassador. We have achieved a strong presence in the UAE, with five branches mostly in prime locations, and enjoyed being part of Expo 2020. We have also been operating in Muscat and Sulaymaniyah since 2020, and we recently opened in Jordan with plans to launch a branch in Sofia-Bulgaria by the end of February. Two new branches are slated to open in the UAE and another in Egypt.”
