Eat: Souk Tabule

Located in the new neighbourhood of Canary District, Souk Tabule is a fast, casual concept spot; a stray away from their Tabule restaurants. It may be a little difficult to find this place as it can be easily missed if you’re driving or walking around, but once you find it, you’ll be greeted by really nice, insta-worthy space.

As a fast casual restaurant, you order at the front, they give you a table number and you find seats. Food will then be brought to you. Another thing to note about Souk Tabule is, it’s also a bit of a market where you can pick up products such as preserves, teas, and spices.

I came here with my brother for brunch. When we arrived, there was a line up at the counter and some people were holding paper menu. Even though they have a menu board, the paper menu has descriptions. A search for that paper was no where to be found and only available once someone was done with it. They need to print more.

I got the Shashuka ($11) with roasted tomato and red pepper sauce, three eggs and labni (strained yogurt). It’s one of their popular dishes and it’s really good with a bit of a kick. I did find the eggs a little to be overcooked.

My brother got the Basterma Egg Scramble ($12) with cured beef, tomato and Arabic slaw (red and white cabbage, nigella seeds and lemon garlic dressing. The scramble came with their saj pita, a thin bread made in-house, which you can also spot someone making it.

We also got a side of Phoenician Fries ($4.50) with zaatar spices, tahini dressing and parsley. I thought there wasn’t much to the sauce to make the fries a little something extra. Also, the fries came way later after we  received our shashuka and egg scramble, so we were given baklava as a consolation for the wait.

Overall, the fast, casual concept is neat in the way that you just order at the counter, find a table and eat when the food arrives. But the concept still has some kinks to work out at Souk Tabule. Food is delicious though.
