Like many other Michelin-starred chefs (Guillaume Sanchez, Assaf Granit…), Alan Geaam has decided to take street-food up. This cuisine fits takeaway (and delivery) sale more, while restaurants are still closed.
Alan Geaam has created Sâj, a counter dedicated to takeaway stuffed Lebanese flatbreads.
The Michelin-starred chef has set Sâj in rue de Montmorency, in Paris 3rd arrondissement, only a few steps from his Lebanese bistro restaurant, Qasti.
Geaam’s Middle-Eastern flatbreads are cooked over a heating convex sheet of metal called saj.
In addition to stuffed flatbreads, the Alan Geaam Sâj counter also provides you with mezzes from Qasti (hummus, tabouleh…). As a starter, go for the exquisite Baba Ganoush, Makanek with pomegranate molasses (small pan-fried spicy lamb sausages), served with Lebanese bread.
Sâj flatbreads are stuffed – to taste – with zaatar, labneh, halloumi, and mozzarella, lamb kefta and hummus, or even spice-marinated chicken to make the flatbread shawarma style. We also love the Soujouk/Halloumi and the Kefta versions.
As for desserts, Alan Geaam’s restaurant pastry chef Julien Noray has also made several desserts in a take-away version: saffron cheesecake, orange blossom rice pudding, and even mouhalabieh as well as some baklawa.
So, are you ready to enjoy Lebanese street-food concocted by a Michelin-starred chef?
