The Noor restaurant offers a variety of authentic Druze dishes for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. Basma Hino’s special cooking is wrapped in her joy of life and fortitude. It is a great introduction to the tasty Druze cuisine, available in the restaurant she opened.
The restaurant serves breakfast, lunch, and dinner, based on local flavors and eaten in traditional dishes. Breakfasts have different options like Tabouleh salad, okra, homemade hummus, and Druze pita bread with special filling alongside the house shakshuka.
Lunch serves stuffed grape leaves, lamb Mansef, Mhamar, or Druze pita bread filled with chicken and Sumac.
End the meal with hot, Finjan-brewed black coffee, baklawa, or Basma’s delicious cakes and cookies. If you’re lucky, you’ll also get to hear her story.
Basma Hino, the owner of the Noor Restaurant and Café, is a woman of enormous strength and will. Her emotional story begins in 2002 when her husband, Marcel, was injured on a mission during his reserve army service. Marcel went into a coma and died 13 years later. Her son Noor was born 4 months after the injury and the restaurant is named after him.
