Abd El Wahab

Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates

To dine at Abd El Wahab is to peer through a window into Lebanese culture. Poised on Saadiyat Island and named after the Beirut street on which it was conceived in 1999, its reputation proceeds it. Authentic Levantine cuisine is the order of the day here – along with a hearty dose of warm Lebanese hospitality. Whether you pick a perch on the palm-flanked terrace or in the laid-back, modern dining room, expect groaning tables laden with the likes of tempting mezze, vibrant tabbouleh and Fattoush salads, pillowy breads and tender mixed grills rooted in heritage recipes. From homemade labneh and shanklish (spice-dusted cheese) to richly flavoured mouhamara (a spicy pepper dip made with walnuts and pomegranate molasses) and bizreh (seasonal fried sardines), you’ll want to try a bit of everything, making it a choice pick for dining with friends.
