If there’s one thing we humans are good at, it’s innovation. Everywhere you look, there’s something new springing up from time-to-time. The best innovations so far can be found in food. It’s unbelievable how many different ways people can recreate the most basic of dishes or items, like bread!
If you’ve always been a fan of flatbreads such as tortillas, or either lavash or pita (which are more Middle-Eastern varieties), you’re probably a lover of wraps as well. A wrap is a delectable and convenient way to load up on the nutrition you need from a meal in next-to-no-time, and with hardly any mess. All you need to do is lay out the ingredients you would like in your wrap –meats, vegetables and sauces, and then tuck them in securely in a flatbread of your choice.
1. PURPLE CHICKEN WRAP: Before you panic wondering why your wrap should be purple, you should know that it’s got nothing to do with an out-of-this-world type of chicken. In fact, it has a lot to do with the spices… or spice rather, used during preparation. Sumac, which is a spice used in Mediterranean and Middle-Eastern cuisine, is what gives out this fabulous hue. When sumac is produced, its berries are normally crushed which then results in a powder that gives off this colour. Saj Bistro’s Purple Chicken Wrap features chicken marinated in sumac and complemented by caramelized onions.
2. PHILLY CHEESESTEAK: For those of you who love to sink your teeth into succulent meat and creamy cheese, the Philly Cheesesteak is hands-down your best bet. Though you might know of the traditional Philly cheesesteak hailing from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, Saj Bistro gives it a twist of its own whilst retaining key traits. With sautéed peppers, onions and a generous sprinkling of melted cheddar cheese, this Lebanese restaurant in Dubai certainly does it right.
3. MAKANEK: Another gratifying choice for meat-lovers, Saj Bistro’s Makanek wrap is a best-seller. Makanek is sausage, Lebanese to be exact. This type of sausage tends to be rather small, and made out of lamb or beef, or sometimes both. Packed with a multitude of spices that significantly contribute towards it complexity, Makanek makes for a luscious filling where wraps are concerned.
