Are you in the mood for some mouthwatering ‘shawarma’ and a refreshing drink to wash it down? Look no further as the flavours and scents of Arabian delicacies will lead you to ‘Cafe Beirut’, Kammanahalli.

From combo meals to individual snacks, the cafe has much to offer. Muhammed Bazid, the owner of ‘Cafe Beirut’, says that he always wanted to start a cafe which has something unique about it and the area didn’t have anything like this. “We wanted to start off with a juice place, but later on, we felt that a place offering light eats and drinks would click better,” he says.

Arabic food has always fascinated Bazid and that’s why he wanted to try his hand at it. He also mentions that the name of the cafe  was suggested by his staff.

While the menu has varied Arabic food items to choose from, it also offers classic burgers, wraps and nugget options for those who just want to have a quick bite.

The menu includes interesting sections like the ‘Snack meal’, ‘Dinner meal’, ‘Economy meal’ and ‘Only chicken’. “Of the favourites on the menu, ‘Al Faham’ tops the list.

Our ‘Fish Barbeque is also popular,” adds Bazid. “Our place boasts of the best ‘Arabic shawarmas’, for which people come from across the city come. Our ‘masala’ does the trick and is as authentic as possible,” he says.

The drinks at the cafe will surprise you with their looks and their refreshing quality. “Our thick shakes turn out to be quite a delight for most people. Other popular choices are ‘Bubblegum milkshake’, ‘Pikadi’, ‘Virgin grape’, ‘Frankenstein’ and ‘Mojito’, which is served in a bulb-like glass,” he informs.

The menu has some unique avocado milk shakes too. “We try our best to keep the drinks simple yet classy.” The cafe with its simple seating “wishes to provide authentic food in an affordable manner”. “We also plan to add more combos soon,” he adds.
