Michelin-starred chef Alan Geaam recently inaugurated Sâj, a takeaway counter serving Middle-Eastern flatbreads – a major staple in Lebanese street-food. Stuffed with hummus, kefta, or even labneh, these flatbreads are to die for.

Like many other Michelin-starred chefs (Guillaume SanchezAssaf 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 GanoushMakanek with pomegranate molasses (small pan-fried spicy lamb sausages), served with Lebanese bread.

Sâj flatbreads are stuffed – to taste – with zaatarlabnehhalloumi, 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.
