Karam Beirut Street Kitchen is, as its name suggests, a spin-off of the famous Lebanese franchise, Karam Beirut. This newly opened delivery only facility in Al Quoz represents a rapidly growing trend by mainstream restaurants to expand through delivery “ghost” or “dark” kitchens dotted across town. This is the third such delivery kitchen Karam Beirut Street Kitchen has opened recently, the others being in Barsha and Downtown.
We ordered extensively through Zomato and got a BIG promotional discount which knocked a whooping AED135 off our AED350 bill – big smile. Hits of our meal included the amazing hummus shawarma (the name speaks for itself) and the fish skewers (basically fish kebabs).
Sadly, there were an equal number of misses, namely the never-to-be-ordered-again Eggplant Fatteh and the minced chicken kebab in the mixed grill. All in all, though, we were happy with our meal.
Packaging was good. All the hot food dishes were tightly wrapped in cling film to keep them warm. Speedy delivery (well done Zomato) ensured the falafel and kibbeh still had bite (and had not gotten soft). This, of course, is one of the benefits of these delivery only facilities; they bring kitchens closer to home. And in the case of Karam Beirut Street Kitchen, that indeed is a good thing – worth an order for sure.
