The Story


"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!
