Freeke Good is a delivery only outlet with multiple locations in Dubai. It is a middle eastern concept focussing on mezzes and freekeh, the super grain. Freekeh is essentially wheat that has been harvested early, while the grains are still tender and green. The kernels are then parched, roasted, dried and rubbed to create its flavour. Freekeh retains more nutrients than other grains – providing better nutrition!! Compared to brown rice, Freekeh has up to three times the fiber and double the protein. This nutrient dense plant-based supergrain is nutritionally superior to many other grains providing exceptional health benefits.
I ordered from them just before the Eid holidays. Delivery was on time and everything was neatly packed and sealed. I ordered a Hot Mezze, a Spicy Freek and a dessert.
The Hot Mezze was Fried Cauliflower with Tahini sauce. I had some apprehensions on how it would taste but I was proved wrong. It was delectable. Loved the combination and highly recommended.
Among the various freek options, I chose a Spicy Meat Freek. The freekeh is served with soujouk, a spicy Middle Eastern sausage, which was cooked in a spicy tomato sauce and sautéed beef and mushrooms. On the side were pickled cucumbers and crispy chickpeas. It was my first time trying freekeh and I loved this combination. As you read, you might think it’s very spicy, but not at all. The flavours were well balanced and definitely worth trying.
What surprised me was the dessert – a slice of Zucchini Cake. If I weren’t told, then I would even guess the main ingredient, zucchini. It was soft and fluffy. Topped with fresh strawberries, it was a match made in heaven.
The portion sizes were filling and it was worth trying something new!!! Loved it!!
