Joanna Dabbas’s delights & hospitality in Sursock


In its edition of today, L’Orient Le Jour spotlighted the career path of Joanna Dabbas, who started the Sursock Museum Resto back in 2015 and will soon launch her own catering service, ‘The New Kitchen by Joanna’. The Sursock Resto offers a diverse range of Lebanese dishes renovated by Dabbas herself, in addition to live oriental music played by a band in addition to activities for children. Dabbas told L’Orient Le Jour reporter that she wanted to keep the level and improve constantly, pointing out that the opening of the restaurant was a very risky adventure in the beginning, but that she persevered and was determined to carry on. Dabbas said it is important to be able to accept feedback and complaints from customers to enhance services. Opening her own eatery was a childhood fascination, she said, noting that she ventured into the industry belated. Dabbas recalled that she started cooking from home and later in 2012 joined the Kitsch concept kitchen in Gemmayze but wanted to be on her own, so she started the Sursock Museum Resto. Besides daily management chores, Dabbas has a passion for agriculture, and in fact she runs the land owned by her father, where she plants, picks and sells organic products to Souk el Tayyeb and some restaurants under the label Joanna’s Fresh Greens.
