The Lebanese Bakery to open flagship London site

Beirut-based restaurant and bakery brand the Lebanese Bakery is to open its first international venue in London's Covent Garden.

The new store is set to launch in May at Drury House on Russell Street.

The business, founded in 2016 by brothers Samer and Bassam Chamoun, serves traditional Lebanese flatbreads known as ‘manousheh'.

Manousheh lays claim to being Beirut's most popular snack and is made from a soft dough and is sprinkled with various toppings such as za'atar (a wild thyme-sesame blend), cheese, chopped tomatoes, meat, and baked egg, sunny side up.

The new London venue will seat up to 28 guests as well as offering take away and delivery options.

All dishes are baked to order in the bakery's basalt rock oven.

Samer and Bassam Chamoun said: "We are excited to bring a taste of Lebanon to the UK, especially London, which has one of the world's greatest and growing food scenes.

"Manousheh is strongly rooted in our food heritage and tradition so we are thrilled to be able to offer Londoners Lebanese food that is both new and exciting, while remaining authentic to our roots."

Alongside his work with the Middle Eastern eatery, Samer works as an architect with a studio in Beirut, while Bassam is a real estate developer who is behind a number of large commercial and residential projects in Beirut, including the development of local and regional restaurants.
