Celebrating World Mankousheh Day with Zaatar w Zeit!

November 2nd marks World Mankousheh Day thanks to the team behind Zaatar w Zeit who created the national food holiday in 2017 to celebrate and honour our traditional Lebanese breakfast pie! And we are more than happy to oblige, right? 😉

Remember this photo? That’s me in my favourite bunny hoodie enjoying mankousheh from Zaatar w Zeit last year!

Zaatar w Zeit’s first branch opened around 20 years ago and continues to expand locally and internationally on a yearly basis!

Who remembers their first mankousheh zaatar from Zaatar w Zeit? The fluffy warm dough, the high-quality zaatar, the oil… What’s not to love?

  1. Man2oushe is an important part of our Lebanese culture so it is a must to celebrate this day + man2oushe brings happiness 😍 love the article!

  2. I love man2ouché spcial man2ouché zaatar w zeit… hope to win
    Thanks zaatarwzeit for this great competition

  3. A mankouche is a traveling with thyme. In the old days, women would prepare zaatar from dried thyme, sesame, and sumac, and spread it on bread while it is baking on the saj oven.Aside from the ease of preparation, it became so widespread because of its low cost.France has its croissants, the United States have their pancakes, and Lebanon has its manakish 🇱🇧😊❤️
