VANCOUVER — The lid is about to pop on Vancouver’s newest Lebanese eatery, Jamjar, which is set to open next month at 2280 Commercial Dr., reports Scout Magazine.
Inside the 32-seat casual concept, the menu will offer an authentic Lebanese dining experience with an assortment of hot and cold “mezze” plates, which include hummus ($7), mint labneh ($9) and Mjadra Msafayi, a lentil and rice spiced stew ($7.50). Hot dishes include white chicken Taouk, with yogurt-marinated chicken breast skewers ($9), Makanik, homemade lamb sausages ($9) and Makali, deep-fried cauliflower and Brussels sprouts ($8.50).
Jamjar’s signature meal is called Tabkha, Mom’s Lebanese Home Cooked Meal — it includes a soup, salad and a choice of mezze ($10.50). The bar will offer an assortment of local beer and wine as well as Mediterranean-spiced cocktails. Retail products, such as spices, flavoured olive oil and flatbread, will be available for sale.
