If you’re not lactose intolerant and can’t stand cheese, then the only plausible explanation left is that you’re from another planet. Cheese has got to be one of the best inventions known to mankind, and is available in different varieties to suit all palettes. Creamy, healthy and downright delicious, it’s also used across a range of culinary dishes. Perhaps you like a slice of cheddar on your cracker or some Parmesan on your pasta? Or maybe, you just like to enjoy an array of gourmet cheese cuts after a meal. Whatever it may be, cheese, in all different forms and sizes, is a culinary delight everywhere in the world.
As one of the top and most authentic Lebanese restaurants in Dubai, Saj Bistro has naturally included a few cheesy treats:
1. HALLOUMI BURGER: Although Halloumi isn’t your typical traditional type of cheese, it is definitely well-loved in the Middle-East. This briny and slightly hard option is perfect for eating with bread; in this case, a Halloumi Burger. Grilled Halloumi, dried figs and fried onion come together in a mesmerizing combination that makes Saj Bistro a one-of-a-kind Lebanese restaurant in Dubai.
2. SUJUK AND CHEESE: Sujuk, which is a type of sausage, with cheese is one of the Middle-East’s most popular combinations. The cheese used in this particular dish is known as kashkaval, which is a semi-hard and yellow type made from either cow or sheep milk or both. The Saj Bistro version features Armenian sausage, kashkaval, tomatoes, pickles and garlic aioli to top it off.
3. AKKAWI CHEESE: Also spelt ‘Ackawi’, ‘Akawi’ and ‘Akawieh’ this cheese has been named after its city of birth, Aker in Palestine. Like Halloumi, it’s a briny cheese with a slight salty flavor, although softer in texture. It enjoys a long shelf life (up to a whole year), and again like its cousin Halloumi, can be fried since it holds up well against high heat. Being a deeply diverse and traditional Lebanese restaurant in Dubai, Saj Bistro continues to boost its menu with this offer.
