The restaurant is to open this year in Dubai, as well as in 8 other spots in the United Arab Emirates. In Saudi Arabia, it will open in 20 locations. Additionally, two more Barbar restaurants will come to life in Qatar by 2022, according to Gulf Business.
The Lebanese-born restaurant started off as a family bakery in 1979. Defying wars and crises, the restaurant hadn’t closed a day in its life, until the pandemic forced it to.
