Mississauga, Ont. – A new Middle Eastern restaurant specializing in Mana’eesh, or flatbread, opens in Mississauga, Ont., on Nov. 8.

Manousha Inc.’s menu will have 25 different kinds of Mana’eesh for diners to choose from. Mana’eesh is a speciality in Middle Eastern cuisine similar to flatbreads or pizza, the business said in a news release.

“Our goal for Manousha Inc. is to introduce new Middle Eastern cuisine to diners in Mississauga and the GTA in a fun and accessible way,” said Shakir Al-Qanbar, the company’s founder. “We’re including traditional Middle Eastern flavours for those who already know and love the cuisine and also adding familiar flavours for those who have never tried Mana’eesh before.”

Manousha is an Arabic word meaning “flatbread”, Mana’eesh is the plural, and it is a well-known dish to fans of Middle Eastern fare. The popular dish is a dough typically topped with thyme and cheese or ground meat.

Diners will be able to choose from four categories of Mana’eesh: meats, sweets, dairy and vegan. The flatbreads are cooked in a dome pizza oven and each menu item is halal.

Manousha Inc. will serve as a take-out location and will work with multiple delivery services, but there will be 12 seats available for those who want to dine in and experience the atmosphere of the restaurant.
