The aroma of freshly baked Manoushe, the mist of shisha’s, the feet tapping numbers of Zeid Hamdan, the delightful dancing, the wines and the mesmerising Nay performance by Bashir Saade at Zorba in Delhi announced the launch of Zizo.
The festivities were designed to give the Indian guests a feel of Lebanon for the official launch of one of the most anticipated Fast Casual Food Chains in India. Zeid Hamdan (the Jazz sensation from Lebanon) presented some of his best renditions for his Indian fans and the guests at the Launch.

The first Zizo outlet situated in Connaught Place, Delhi has now opened its doors. Fouad Abdel Malak, CEO of Zizo said; “Traditionally, Zizo (a pet beetle) means a lot to every Lebanese child and it always makes us crave to go back to the days where food was always an organic delight but yet flavourful. It is our promise that we at Zizo will be serving the best localy sourced product with the best imported grade A and organic produce from lebanon like olives, zataar, pomegranate mollases and among many others. Food tastes much better when it is served with the original ingredients, and lots of love.”
Chef Maroun Chedid, the man behind the culinary development of Zizo said “Traditional Lebanese food is one of the most popular cuisines globally and we wanted to add a modern twist for our Indian friends. Zizo brings the experience of traditional Lebanese food with authentic ingredients to give the Indian palate an experience that they would like to repeat quite often.”
