Za’atar is at the very crux of Lebanese food culture. It is made from a blend of herbs and spices, usually thyme, oregano, marjoram, sumac, toasted sesame seeds and salt, which is then mixed with olive oil and spread on flatbread and baked in the oven. At Manoosh we offer a rage of toppings to go with our delicious za’atar bread, from haloumi to labhne, olives, capsicum, ricotta or falafel. Try our Beirut-style za’atar with haloumi, tomato, onion & chilli flakes. Many of these are vegetarian or vegan options and range from $3 for plain bread, to $8 for the deluxe falafel option.
Looking for a thick, meaty, delicious meal but don’t think you can take on whole pizza by yourself? Our folded sujuk pizza is just for you. Featuring fluffy folded crust filled with cheese, sujuk, olives, capsicum and tomato, it’s a delicious alternative to a traditional pizza. Sujuk is Lebanese sausage, somewhat similar to pepperoni, made from ground beef, combined with a selection of exotic, spices like garlic, cumin, sumac and red pepper.
You’ve never had a haloumi pie like this. Featuring heaps of melted haloumi stuffed into in a semi circle pie coated with sesame seeds, its warm, gooey and filling. It’s also a great vegetarian option for those looking for something a little more delectable. But hold on, melted haloumi you say? At Manoosh we use Lebanese haloumi, which is different from traditional Cyprus-style haloumi that is crusty and squeaky. Lebanese haloumi is woven and stretched into bundles and stored in olive oil, giving it a stringy texture more akin to mozzarella. We also have a tasty vegan spinach option.
Lahembajin is a folded meat pizza, but with no cheese. Instead we top a crispy base with tasty minced lamb, finely chopped tomatoes and onions which are then combined with a selection of 7 herbs and spices including paprika, peppers, cumin, cinnamon, parsley coriander and mint. Served with a thick slice of lemon as a garnish.
An excellent side or snack, Kebbeh is a delicious Lebanese street food classic made from a minced lamb, pine nut and onion filling, encased in a burghul (cracked wheat) & lamb ‘football’. We also a super vegan option made from a chickpea, spinach and onion filling, encased in a burghul and pumpkin football. These are huge and at $9 for 6, or $17 for a dozen, great value (vegan options are even cheaper!).
We also offer a selection of delicious Lebanese wraps to suit the tastes of any hungry customer, none more than $8! Some of these include our famous falafel, healthy vegan options, vegetarian toppings, beef and chicken wraps and our Shawarma wrap, each with a selection of Lebanese condiments and salads like Labhne, hummus, pickles and tahini.
We also offer an array of salad options including classic tabouleh, Mediterranean style and a garden salad.
If you’re a fan of mixing and matching, our sides and dips are for you. Sides range from falafel to chicken wings to Sambousik (puff pastry and minced meat). These can be paired with a plethora of tasty sides like hummus, tzatsiki, babaganouj, and garlic and lemon.
