Restaurant Review: Leila, Sheikh Mohammed Bin Rashid Boulevard, Clarens Tower I, Downtown Dubai
Lebanese food is enduringly popular in Dubai, whether you’re from the region looking for familiar tastes of home or an expat embracing Arabic food for the first time. Its homely ambiance is a draw to both its Downtown and Mirdif City Centre locations, with flavours that will “transport you back to Lebanon and your Lebanese grandmother’s kitchen”. Don’t miss the pesto ras asfour (meat with basil sauce) and keep your eyes peeled for these regional celebrities: singer/actress Cirine Abdel Nour, Kuwaiti singer Nabil Choueil, Lebanese singer Dominique Hourani, Egyptian actress Fifi Abdo and Lebanese rally driver Abdo Feghali.
