The origins Singapore’s Arab Street are somewhat contentious. One theory points to the existence of an old Arab kampong or village in the area, while the other points to the group of Muslim traders that clustered around the Sultan’s Palace back in the days of Singapore’s founding. Either way, Arab Street is true to its name thanks to the presence of Tabbouleh Lebanese Gourmet’s authentic Middle Eastern and Lebanese café and restaurant.
Arab Street takes its name from the historic presence of Arabic and Muslim
communities in what we know now as modern-day Singapore. Similarly, Tabbouleh
Lebanese Gourmet takes its name from the signature Lebanese salad of tabbouleh,
whose variations riff on a basic blend of finely chopped tomatoes, parsley, mint, and
onion all seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice and salt. Tabbouleh Lebanese Gourmet
is committed to representing the best of Middle Eastern cuisine, using only fresh,
healthy ingredients to create traditional Lebanese dishes, gourmet sandwiches,
salads and more.
Tabbouleh Lebanese Gourmet’s executive chef is a talented Lebanese cook, proud of his culinary heritage and glad to demonstrate to Singapore’s curious diners what it means to eat Middle Eastern-style. Freshness is paramount, and this gourmet Lebanese cafe and restaurant use only the best when they craft classics like their namesake tabbouleh, hummus, baba ghanoush, and falafel dishes. Lebanese style fried fish is sure to please Singapore’s seafood-mad, while special events see Tabbouleh Lebanese Gourmet down Arab Street taking a whole lamb to the roasting spit after being given the Lebanese spice treatment. Middle Eastern cuisine in the middle of Singapore has never had a better ambassador.
