Share Saj And Stories At This Adorable Gemmayze Spot

What do food and storytelling have in common? They’re quite synonymous. One bite can tell many stories and bring you closer to the chefs making every piece with love. And at Saj Stories, you connect through flavors.

You can find this newly opened spot in the heart of Gemmayze. Avid foodies and travelers Josephine and Rita had a dream of travelling with their saj creations and sharing food and stories with those they meet along the way, and now they have a dedicated spot to welcome travelers from different walks of life (especially those with a love for saj).

This spot serves delicious specialty saj. Some of their most interesting creations include their Hum Yum, made with hummus, beetroot oregano and a seed mix. The Pear Up, a combination of roasted pears, goat cheese, honey, rosemary, and almonds, is a sweet treat to enjoy over brunch and a conversation.

Have a sip of coffee with your order in their cozy corner, best enjoyed with company. The minimalist décor and warm-toned color scheme are recipe for a homely visit where you can get comfortable, fill your belly with saj, and your brain with mindful conversations.

This spot encourages community building and creating connections with your loved ones, and even with strangers, because nothing brings us closer together than food (just ask every Lebanese teta).

If you end up stopping by Saj Stories, you’ll be doing more than just satisfying your cravings. You can also be making new friends! For more information, make sure to check them out on Instagram.

Happy saj and storytelling!
