The humble sandwich is interestingly, the mightiest meal. It can be breakfast, dinner, a snack or packed in your backpack for emergency hunger pangs. But most of all its versatility and ability to satisfy even the pickiest of eaters is what makes it the winner of best choice award when feeding a group of people. We’re using the term sandwich loosely here, basically any doughy shell filled with delicious goodness qualifies as a sandwich in our books.
Khffayef, for the most part, is a delivery-only concept that has taken that idea, ran with it, and they have gone far. They do have a small seating area at their original location in Al-Qurain, and you are always welcome to go in and eat your sandwich, but what they excel at is delivering your sandwich fix to your door.
Breakfast at the office, brunch with your friends or even an unplanned surprise family dinner, Khffayef has got you covered whatever the occasion. Delivery is expedient and packaging is immaculate. Your order arrives at your door as if you had picked it up from the restaurant yourself.
For a hearty breakfast you have a lot to choose from. And even more if you think of all the different combinations and changes you make to suit your dietary restrictions or personal taste. We love starting the day with Mana’eesh, notice the plural use of the word, because we always go for more. When the quality is great, you need to up the quantity even if you end up stuffed. Zaatar, halloumi, creamy spinach or even eggs make great fillings. But the Shakshouka Man’oushe is a great take on the classic shakshouka but is a great all-in-one dish.
And you can’t just order mains without side orders. Fries are always a crowd pleaser, but the zaatar fries are a crowd-amazer! For a healthier option you can have baked potatoes instead that are covered in herbs and cheese. It is a good thing that Khffayef live up to their name of being light, so you can indulge in more of everything.
And while they have all the classics like Fatayer and Saj, their options for fillings are innumerable and completely customizable. Don’t forget the croissants, they’re a great addition to any breakfast spread and are delicious. The main dishes work great for any time of the day but can make an already satisfying meal even more substantial. A baked eggplant plate or the lava foul plate is great for sharing and dipping together.
Catering for small or large groups is easier and more exciting with Khffayef. Your sandwiches come in a large wicker basket that makes it look great in any spread. If you are planning a themed party or would prefer to use your own, they are always ready to accommodate your needs. You can choose from the ready-made plates or build your own.
The Catering Station is a true spectacle! Watch the experienced chef flip freshly made dough on the saj, for a truly fun experience. This is fantastic at diwaniyas, parties and any gathering really. Children and adults alike are always mesmerized by the sounds and smells and queue (but not always orderly) for their hot-off-the-saj food. And if you want extra help, just ask, Khffayef can send a trained waiter to make sure your guests are served and happy.
