My go-to place for fresh salads and a comfort wrap or sandwich? Zaatar Zeit it is, as they take pride in their menu,ranging from low cal wraps , a slice of manakeesh to those craving for some street food with some new choices on the menu, shawarmas or shish tawook. What makes me fall more in love with them is the fact that they serve breakfast , and not just anyhow but in a pan and plus points as they are served all day, it makes me feel right at my home. You can choose having your eggs cooked your style (mine is well fried) which comes with a bowl of salad and fresh bread(you can now opt for oat bread) on the side. If you are not an egg fan like me, not to worry, they also have halloumi and labneh on their menu.
Browsing through their menu, we took a good amount of time trying to put our finger on what wraps to choose and we settled for the beef steak wrap which contained juicy beef strips complemented with bell peppers, rocket leaves, a sprinkle of caramelized onions topped with barbecue sauce to punch in the flavor and and the famous chicken wrap, roasted chicken pieces meet a dash of melted cheese and lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and aioli sauce acts as the perfect complement to the chicken with its creaminess.
For the salads we opted for the chicken kale salad, which happens to be one of my favorites , i love how the grilled strips of chicken lend flavor to the kale leaves which is also combined with flax seeds, dried apricot and thymes making for a perfect healthy choice. The zooza salad is the perfect wholesome salad as it contains quite the mix from baked sliced potatoes, boiled eggs, tomatoes, some corn , tuna and lettuce, dressed in mustard vinegar though i would suggest to leave quite some space in your tummy for this number. The potato chicken platter although delicious in taste was a little disappointing as there were more sliced potatoes than pieces of chicken, which did not work in the favor of the dish but nevertheless had a nice tangy flavor.
For desserts, we tried out the tiramisu and the blueberry cheesecake, though i found the tiramisu to be not as creamy i would have liked it to be, it did have a nice cocoa flavor. In terms of flavor, the cheesecake takes a higher precedence and also because i do like my cheesecakes. It was a lot more creamier but at the same time light on the palette.
If you are looking for comfort food or in a rush for a meeting and looking for a quick bite, Zaatar Zeit with its many branches across the city serves you right and well.
