Happy Canada Day! We’ve been working hard over the last few months. Our menu got a makeover with summer flavours infused. To celebrate the new season, our chef has introduced a selection of new menu options. These exceptional dishes showcase the best Arabic cuisine.
New Menu Options
We’ve kept some original dishes plus added a great new selection with some exciting and delicious new menu options. Here are some of the updates for you.
The best place to start is the appetizers. We’ve kept the most popular items and added 3 new ones to introduce our Taghmees “dipping” culture. It means sharing practice in Arabic cuisine.
We introduced the Tunisian Shakshuka in Kalaya-style and the Potato Mfarrakeh Kallaya, potato and eggs marinated with spices. Also, we added the famous Lebanese Batata Harra, cubed potato fries mixed with cilantro, lemon, garlic, and chilli flakes.
The masterpiece of Syrian Cuisine are a new addition. The Shishbarak Dumplings, ear-shaped dough filled with meat, spices, and herbs, dipped in a cooked yogurt sauce with garlicky olive oil infused with dry mint. Shishbarak was initially sampled as a special and the response was overwhelming.
You are going to love the Bamya (ladies’ fingers). This stew cooked in a tantalizing tomato base topped with fried garlic and served with fresh bread.
Farrouj Mashwi is our latest feature. Get a whole grilled chicken with a taste to remember.
The Msakhan sandwich wrapped with veggies and introduced the Iraqi Vegetarian Sandwich-Baghdadi Arous, are back. Some of our guests tried it, and they raved about it so much that we just had to add it to the main menu. You will see that this is the most incredible sandwich you have ever tried. Filled with fried vegetables, hard-boiled eggs, salad, shatta (hot sauce), hummus, and pickled mangos with fenugreek, it’s a taste you will remember.
Family Platters & Combos
Next, we went heavy on the family platters and the combos. We realized that everyone has their own individual taste, different but all good. When you’re dining out with a group of people it gives you the freedom of choice.
The signature baklava recipe took years to perfect. The winning result is a melt-in-your-mouth treat. It has since become a customer favourite. Handmade in the Yafa Café bakery, this sweet Arabic dessert is crafted with 60 paper-thin phyllo pastry leaves. It features layers of minced walnuts, almonds, plant-based ghee, cinnamon, honey, rose water, and a splash of lemon.
We have introduced the basbousa, made with semolina ghee and our yummy syrup. Both are a vegan option to satisfy the sweet tooth.
In the drinks department, we added more than 10 new fantastic selections of drinks that our baristas have crafted. It will impress you for sure!
Discover the dishes scented with aromatic spices, succulent desserts and lovely drinks served at our café. Those are the highlights from the new menu. Come on in and try them out and let us know your thoughts!
