Designed to take you back to the village you grew up in, Al Falamanki is the perfect
venue for one to sit and play a game of cards or backgammon, while listening
to artists such as Fairuz playing in the background. Offering a wide
selection of delicious Lebanese cuisine, Al Falamanki Café is
serenity in the midst of chaos and havoc;
a little village within the city.

of the beautiful city

A real proof of the village in the heart of the city, "Dekkanet Al Falamanki" is many people's favorite corner store. The rural-­-inspired store sells some of the goods and produce found on the menu, to provide people with a share of Al Falamanki to take home and enjoy whenever they want.
You can find 100% natural and exquisite spices, olive oil, variety of jam flavors, pickles, organic soap, herbs etc… that preserve the spirit of authentic Lebanese production. In addition to Lebanese designers home products, kitchen wear.
None of the products are labeled Al Falamanki, but rather marked with the names of their original producers. This gesture is Al Falamankis’ way to give back to the community by perpetuating the know-­-how associated with specific culinary techniques; a tribute to traditional culinary artisans that defined what the Levant cuisine is today.

Al Falamanki loved playing poker especially
Texas Hold'em. And one of the most
infamous stories about Khalil is when he
played against Omar Al Sharif and
won $ 30,000 in one game

Lebanese cuisine is a combination of European sophistication with exotic Asian ingredients and a twist of Middle Eastern spices. It is generally regarded as one of the world`s healthiest cuisines, because of its minimally processed foods and abundant use of fruits and vegetables.

Al Falamanki is the perfect adaptation of traditional Lebanese culture and dishes into the modern day restaurant.

On Khalil's 45th birthday
Alfred Hitchcock surprised him
with a special screening
of his upcoming movie
"The Birds"
