Chef spotlight: Chef Bassam Elchamaly
At the helm is Chef Bassam Elchamaly, who brings over 30 years of experience in the culinary world to Al Ain Rotana.

Here, the chef presents his top picks at Min Zaman...
Start off right: Hummus Bil Lahme
"Hummus Bil Lahme is a classic Lebanese dish that combines the creaminess of hummus with the rich flavour of ground meat. At Min Zaman, we make our Hummus Bil Lahme from scratch, using only the freshest and most flavourful ingredients resulting in a dish that's both hearty and comforting, as the creaminess of the hummus balances out the richness of the meat. Served with warm pita bread, it's the perfect choice for a satisfying and delicious meal."
The main attraction: Tarhiet Shawarma
"At Min Zaman, we take pride in putting a twist on an all-time Lebanese favourite – the humble shawarma. While many shawarmas use pita bread or other types of pre-made dough, we create our own special dough in-house. The Tarhiet Shawarma combines this freshly cooked dough with fresh vegetables, pickles, sauces and a generous amount of meat. The result is a shawarma that's unlike any other, with the perfect blend of crispy dough and juicy meat. Served with a side of our homemade sauces, it's the ideal choice for a flavourful and satisfying meal. Come and try it for yourself!"
The big finish: Baked Kunafa
"Our Kunafa is another twist on the classic dessert, featuring a crispy, golden crust that's delightfully crunchy. Made with a base of shredded filo dough, it's filled with cheese and drizzled with simple syrup to achieve that balance of sweet and salty flavours. Served warm with a sprinkle of pistachios, it's a great way to end your meal at Min Zaman. We promise it's worth saving room for!"
