"Man’oushi is a popular Levantine food consisting of dough topped with thyme, cheese, or ground meat. Similar to a pizza, it can be sliced or folded, and it can be served either for breakfast or lunch. The word man'oushi is an Arabic word, from the root verb naqasha 'to sculpt, carve out', meaning that after the dough has been rolled flat, it is pressed by the fingertips to create little dips for the topping to lie in.
Traditionally, women would bake the dough in a communal oven in the morning, to provide their family with their daily bread needs, and would prepare smaller portions of dough with different toppings for breakfast at this time.
Manakish is popular in most Levant countries, especially Syria, Lebanon, Palestine, and Jordan, as well as in many cities throughout the world where people of Levant origin have settled."
Absolutely loved it.
Amazing food and charismatic staff.
