Al Baba Sweets - Qoreitem Branch

Sweet Taste of Sidon in Beirut

All year round but especially during Ramadan, Lebanese sweets manufacturers are busy and their creations in big demand.

Souhail Ghandour is one of the friendly staff at Al-Baba Sweets’ Quoreitem branch founded in 1998. He is swift at picking the requested sweets from the trays and pyramids of basma, “bird’s nests”, burma and many more Arabic sweets and enjoys guiding newcomers through the mouthwatering world of hallab.

When he was younger, he used to work at his grandfather’s, who had a small sweet shop, during the school holidays… He has kept a passion for his grandfather’s trade and can still make every single sweet from scratch! According to Souhail to acquire the art of Arabic sweets making takes one to two years.

Al-Baba, a reputed sweet maker from Sidon with branches across Lebanon, and in the Gulf, is known for its mouth-watering creations and penchant for bold innovation. Starting out six decades ago, the sweets manufacturer took sanyoura, a Sidonese speciality to another level, steadily broadening its range to include all local Oriental sweets. Al-Baba furthermore offers gelato, French patisserie and has created ma’amoul filled with apricot and figs, baklava dipped in chocolate, Jewels & Dates, an exquisite range of handmade Tunisian sweets made with marzipan, whole pistachios, pine nuts, walnuts, almonds and crushed coconut as well as the diet range.

Al-Baba is also famous for its baklava – make sure to taste some of it.
