Expect the best from Manoushe street

Known for their mouth watering Levantine cuisine from healthy breakfasts to nutritious wraps and pizzas along with old time Lebanese favorites Manakeesh & kaak; all in a street corner bakery set up. This time I tried their delivery service from the Mizhar outlet located in aswaq mall. The delivery was efficient and everything was packed neatly especially the dessert jar and salad bowl.

I tried the Long life quinoa salad which comprised of beetroot, perfectly cooked quinoa, pomegranate, flax seeds, leafy greens with an amazing blueberry balsamic dressing that binds it all together in a fantastic way.

Since I am an absolute fan of flavored green teas, I was ecstatic to see chun mei green tea on their menu and so I tried it. This one was ginger, honey and lemon grass blended nicely with brewed green tea. I found it a bit on the stronger side, so I suggest you drink it cold because it tastes way better that way. The kick you get from ginger here is super intense.

Pepperoni pizza was the first one I butchered, it is always no brainer to order this one as its a sure shot to impress you and the guests, the pepperoni was fresh and juicy while the cheesy bread made a wonderful base.

Zaatar manakeesh was ever so fresh, in addition to this; it was garnished with fresh herbs and diced tomatoes to enhance the flavor.

The street style Burek was my favorite, this one was beefyshroom. Strips of beef, onions, bell peppers are all tucked in a crusty dough with 3 kinds of cheese and then baked. Just grab this as soon as it arrives because its best enjoyed hot.

The dessert was lotus cheesecake labelled as “addictive lotus cheesecake” on the menu. I have zero doubts about this dessert being addictive since the caramelized lotus melts in mouth with velvety soft creame cheese. Please don’t leave without trying this one!

Guilt-free pizza from Freedom Pizza

It’s almost so common that we tick off pizza from the list of food while thinking of our health. Solely because its always high in calories and loaded with cheese. Freedom pizza is famous for their healthy twists on pizza, desserts and garlic breads. They have carefully constructed each recipe bearing in mind that any person who is on gluten-free, dairy-free, nut-free, keto diets may enjoy their pizzas with zero guilt.


The pizza was right on time even though the delivery outlet was at least 30 minutes away from my home. Not only this but all the pizzas were packed neatly, warm and fresh with tangy marinara sauces. packed separately.

I was really looking forward to have their cauliflower crusted pizza which was extremely delicious, I wouldn’t have imagined that its a cauliflower crust given that the flavors and texture did complete justice to the concept of pizza in general.


Then I had the viva las vegan and felt that the bread was a little dry and could use some kind of moisture. But the toppings were brilliant! Red sauce, vegan sausage, vegan cheese, mixed pepper, spring onion, balsamic onion, basil and parsley were rocking altogether. Overall it was pretty amazing.


I literally love their mozzarella bread sticks, these were chewy pull apart kinda bread pieces. Highly recommend this as a side to your pizza.

I also tried their mango and strawberry cheesecakes that were quite different mainly because they were gluten free and vegan. But not bad though! You should definitely give these a try.img_4138

You may even create/customize your own pizza with a wide variety of toppings to choose from.

And you eat like at home with Crumby


Crumby is an authentic Italian restaurant that serves you meals that are hearty and make you feel like home. The warmth and freshness in each dish resonates with one’s heart so beautifully that it is impossible to be dissatisfied with your dining experience here.


The ambiance is simple. elegant and neat. Even the choice of music is vintage and classy.


We started off our amazing culinary journey with fresh Bruschetta that was exceptionally good simply because the tomatoes were not over grilled. Usually I feel chefs cook/bake the tomatoes so much that when you bite into the bruschetta, it looses that juicy and fresh touch.

Pumpkin soup

It was their soup of the day and I had runny nose so our server “Diana” recommended me this soup and she assured me that it will be amazing. I usually don’t go for soups especially pumpkin ones but when I had the first spoonful of this soup, my pupils dilated with excitement. It was creamy and warm and it came with a bowl of parmesan cheese and croutons to add as per your liking. I went all in and tossed the croutons and cheese and waited for a minute to dig in so that the croutons become pillow-y soft. The soup tasted exactly like a classic beschamel sauce.

chicken panzerotti

The chicken panzerotti was fluffy and light as air so much so that you won’t believe its deep fried. All credit goes to the dough that was kneaded to perfection. The chicken and cheese filling inside was pretty generous and flavorsome. Don’t believe me? Watch out for this cheese pull below:



Speaking of perfect dough, their pepperoni pizza was work of art.

Pepperoni pizza with cherry tomatoes

Diana explains us the six steps which are needed to make this beautiful pizza. First the chef kneads dough several times and then rolls it out on the baking dish and slathers on freshly prepared pizza sauce comprised of ripe tomatoes. He then bakes it for some time and when the bread rises, only then the cheese and pepperoni is added and the cherry tomatoes go on last. wow!

Spinach and ricotta ravioli

If you don’t know the amount of time and energy that goes into making a perfect ravioli, you may never appreciate it the way it deserves to be appreciated. This was a spinach and ricotta ravioli dunked in tomato sauce with Italian herbs. The combination of spinach and ricotta is match made in heaven but it was executed so well that this dish stands out.


Crumby Dubai has won this title for an eminent reason:


Their Tiramisu is made of mascrapone cheese made from scratch, yep! you read it right and that enhances its flavor up to 10 times as compared to an ordinary Tiramisu.


The layers of divine goodness blend in beautifully to create this dessert. I am smitten by the hearty meals I devoured here at Crumby, this is the kind of food that speaks to your heart and soul on so many levels.

Thank you once again for a wonderful dining experience Crumby Dubai.
