Balancing old street flavors with 21st century trends, Operation: Falafel is a modern take on casual Arabic dining. It harks back to a time long ago, where the sun warmed the gravel on old stone-paved streets, and carts lined up to serve traditional Arabic food. For generations, this authentic food brought people together with flavors that were passed down from generation to generation. Watching a cuisine they loved fall into a deconstructive dilemma, two food enthusiasts and saviors of Arabic food set out on an operation to prove age-old cuisine can still win in the 21stcentury. Their aim: to bring back flavors that are proof of the cuisine’s authenticity and originality, maintaining the respect time has for traditional flavors and methods, while wrapping it up in quirky and unconventional packaging.
Perfecting one recipe at a time, Operation: Falafel works on a specialized model that helps serve food that isn’t just cooked and plated, but handcrafted and presented by chefs who are masters of traditional Arabic street food – inside a contemporary space. Guests can enjoy the best falafel in town, alongside a selection of traditional Levant dishes, including delicious hummus, tangy fattoush, succulent chicken shawarma & generous portions of manaeesh. Some of the signature dishes include mouth-watering stuffed falafel, soft classic ijjeh omlette, finger-licking Kashkaval cheese and yummy muhallabiyyeh. Operation: Falafel is the perfect choice for breakfast, lunch, light snacks or dinner, 24 hours a day.
Just like the brand itself, the interiors of the restaurant are in keeping with the edgy theme. The basic metal and wooden elements create interesting dining spaces with a concept. An open kitchen not only keeps the look and feel contemporary, but also utilizes a practical design solution that requires minimum physical space.
The first Operation: Falafel restaurant opened at The Beach, opposite Jumeirah Beach Residence in March 2014, and received an overwhelming response in a span of few months alone – resulting in the opening of its second branch in March 2015 at Box Park Mall – Dubai.
