Manakish is a tasty Levantine dish that's an Arabic version of pizza. The savoury pastry is a flatbread that's topped with various ingredients and spices before it is baked. Traditionally, it is made with minced lamb, cheese, or za'atar (a spice mixture that blends oregano, toasted sesame seeds, and more). It's one dish that you can enjoy as mezze or for breakfast.


Imagine meatballs or croquettes, if you enjoy them, there are chances you'll like kibbeh too. Kibbeh is a versatile dish that's made from minced meat, typically lamb or beef. Made with spiced ground meat, pine nuts, onions, and bulgur wheat, the dish is served as a part of mezze platters or as a side dish. Try it with the tahini-based sauce for extra flavours.
