If you’ve never tried Eastern breakfasts, then you are in for a wonderful surprise.
SemSem is known for their traditional, authentic homemade cuisine. Sip your tea, sit back and relax while you settle in with friends for a delightful traditional breakfast.
Their Eastern-inspired breakfast items have been perfected and fine-tuned for consistency and flavor.
It’s a little-known fact that in the Middle East breakfast is a bit of a big thing and even more so on the weekends. Breakfast is taken to new heights, that most Western breaky-lovers can’t really compare.
Breakfast at SemSem is a medley of flavors, plenty of fresh bright colours, great aromas and lovely textures.
A lot of the SemSem soul-full menu favours chick-peas but chick-peas are not always a main ingredient. Hummus and fool (fool translates to fava-beans), tend to go side-by-side and are often seen together. Most Western dinners are familiar with hummus but tend not to have heard of fool. Don’t be shy, you’re likely to find a new loving-cousin in this savory favorite breakfast bean concoction.
Items like falafel are a classic breakfast item and SemSem has incredible falafel that can’t be beat, crispy and full of great taste.
The SemSem After 8, also known as Kaakeh is a popular sesame bread among Levant countries like Palestine, Jordan, Syria and Lebanon. It’s not unheard of to start your morning with
kaakeh. At SemSem you can enjoy After 8 with a variety of fillings, including cheese and Za’taar. Baked fresh and served right from the oven the After 8 bread is a true classic with a uniqueness that is only described as having the SemSem touch.
It’s not a completed breakfast without a spot of mint-tea. A beautiful fresh mint leaf gently floats in a glass cup of hot tea. It’s a great way to start and end your breakfast.
