Casual Dining at Al Sumac Al Shami in Al Ain

First of all, Al Sumac Al Shami restaurant has only one small dining room with only two small tables…

…but we won’t apologize about this – it is super clean, cozy, lovely, and the food is fantastic!

Chef Dema is the energy behind the stove.

She is a professional Chef graduate, so already that puts her ahead of 95% of other “restaurants”.

Then, she has passion. This restaurant is her dream, and she puts 100% into it, presenting to your palate the culinary traditions of Damascus – Damascene soul food, she calls it.

The results speak for themselves.

Have a good look at this chicken wrap. The taste? Incredible. This could be on Master Chef, truly.

Please see the detail of the perfect crispiness:

Indeed it is not the size of the place, but the size of the heart.

Every plate, every dish – fabulous.

You see, as expats here we hardly get to eat real homemade Arabic food, unless we’re invited into a family home – all the commercial hummous, tabouli, mixed grills…they mostly taste the same.

Well, try Al Sumac Al Shami’s and you will never look back!
