The Story

MEET CHEF YOLA AND HER DAUGHTER MARCELLE

"We wanted to share mama's delicious food and share the beautiful Syrian culture with all the people in Toronto and beyond. Welcome to our little Syria!"

_ Marcelle Aleid, Co-Founder

In the past, the Syrian women used to create new dishes using seasonal vegetables and fresh ingredients to add fantastic taste and colour to their families' daily meals. Therefore a lot of the main Syrian dishes were created to taste and look fabulous at the same time. In 2018 Marcelle and her mother, Yolla, started Zezafoun as a cozy family restaurant to promote the Syrian food's delicious taste.

 

Oh, one more thing... Every dish we have has a story to tell!
