Derwandi’s Culinary Journey: Celebrating Three Years of Lebanese Excellence

Derwandi, the beloved homegrown Lebanese restaurant, proudly marks its third anniversary this summer, inviting patrons on a remarkable culinary journey. Since opening its doors in 2021, Derwandi has been more than just a dining destination; it’s a celebration of Lebanon’s rich culinary heritage. Every visit to Derwandi promises an authentic taste of Lebanon, where each dish tells a story of tradition and passion. Every meal is a journey to the heart of Lebanon, making every anniversary a celebration of culinary artistry and cultural pride.

Over the past three years, Derwandi has expanded its horizons. From its flagship restaurant in the heart of Abu Dhabi, the Corniche, it has now established a presence in Dubai’s vibrant Jumeirah neighborhood. The two-story restaurant, with its breathtaking view of the Dubai skyline on Al Wasl Road, is a testament to the brand’s growth and success.

As part of the third-anniversary celebration, Derwandi is introducing a one-of-a-kind ice cream: a Vermicelli cone with Kashta filling! This limited-edition ice cream, available from July 1 to July 7, 2024, will be complimentary for all guests with every dine-in order at the Dubai and Abu Dhabi restaurants as a show of appreciation for the loyalty and trust shown over the years.

Since its inception, it has become the destination for those in search of high-quality Lebanese food, providing a varied menu with showstopping dishes from Labnet Derwandi, the traditional Lebanese labneh mixed with Derwandi’s secret recipe of fresh vegetables to Lahmeh Bi Ajine Traboulsiye, a Baklava dough with minced meat and pomegranate molasses served with yogurt.

Proudly incorporating a farm-to-table concept, Derwandi uses premium ingredients sourced directly from fresh farms in Lebanon weekly and uses them to garnish and enhance dishes for diners in the UAE.

The all-day dining destination welcomes guests throughout the day, boasting an array of options for each meal. Breakfast-goers can enjoy a hearty Lebanese breakfast with Sineyet el Derwandi. For lunch, patrons can dive into the daily dish options or the set business lunch offering, and for those looking to decompress after work, what better way to do so than with tasteful mocktails, delectable desserts, and a marvelous view?

With plans to expand to provide catering services and the restaurants’ availability on delivery platforms in Dubai and Abu Dhabi––it has never been easier to get your Derwandi fix!

Head over to Derwandi this July, try out the limited-edition ice cream while you can, and join the celebrations.
