Zaroob is now in Jeddah, Tahlia Street!
ZAROOB literally translates to “small alley.” It is a concept inspired by the traditional street food vendors found around the Levant region.
Thanks to a large sign bearing green and pink neon lights, Zaroob, an independent restaurant that started on Sheikh Zayed Road in Dubai, serving Levant-style street food, is hard to miss. Once inside, the interior lives up to the exterior: it's bright, modern, quirky, ever so slightly eccentric, and all the better for it.
Graffiti artwork covers the large corrugated iron walls, and tall wooden shelves display a selection of condiments.
The menu is extensive and offers all the yummy Arabic dishes we know – hummus, falafel, halloumi, saj bread, shawarma, man'oushe – in pure form and also with a twist. Prices are very reasonable and the dishes are quite small, providing the perfect opportunity for ordering a selection and sharing.
