Syriously! – Serious Syrian kitchen in Luxembourg

 Better described by Syriously! themselves: The Syriously! Story
Mahmoud came to Luxembourg in the wake of the Syrian war that devastated his home town of Raqqaa where he was a pharmacist and pharmaceutical products wholesaler.
Being a passionate cook, his dream was to open a small restaurant in his new home.When Pitt, the owner of the walls, met Moudy through Marianne and the HARIKO-initiative of Red Cross the 2 food lovers decided to give a purposefull end-of-life to these old walls by creating a time limited syrian eatery.
The venue of Syriously! is part of a number of houses which are going to be demolished to build a mixed residential development in 2019.
The concept was that the renovations would be carried out by the team itself, mainly volonteering friends of Mahmoud and Pitt with minimal investment into the walls and maximum social impact for the implied people.Now that the dust has setlled we are proud to serve you fine Syrian dishes with an Aleppo-bias and everything is homemade by Syrian women under Mahmouds guidance.
We believe that this first work experience in Luxembourg will allow them to develop social and language skills and that they will enrich our country with their energy and culture in the years to come.
In this sense, Syriously! is a high social impact project fostering social cohesion by empowering our new citizens to start a new life

—————————————– Let’s eat ————————————-

A very delicious dinner, inexpensive for Luxembourg and friendly, smiling people. Everything is not finished, settled or finalised – glasses, plating and service is charming fresh, different & clean. All the food wash fresh tasting and fragrant.

I would like a little larger selection of beverages and I still need to learn how to use the spicy salad and condiments spice in the food.
Best of luck to the full team, I look forward to be back.
While you have the chance i recommend this A Must GO.

    1. Hi Conrad, thanks for your message. Syriously has now closed, sibling project Chiche is literally next door and strongly recommended for food and ambiance.
