This is Chris Redgrave for Zions Bank Speaking on Business.

Derek Kitchen and Moudi Sbeity started their first business together selling amazing hummus at the Downtown Farmer’s Market, made using Moudi’s family recipe. It was so popular, their business took off, with the goal to grow enough to create a restaurant and share more family recipes. Two years ago, their vision became reality when they opened Laziz Kitchen in downtown Salt Lake City in the growing hip business district at 900 South and 200 East.

Laziz Kitchen is taking a new approach to traditional Lebanese and Mediterranean dishes. Moudi describes it as the kind of food you would find in someone’s home because these are family recipes passed through the generations. One of the crowd favorites is a salad bowl with 12 ingredients including a mixture of seasonal greens, cucumbers, tomatoes, quinoa, feta, house-pickled cabbage and caramelized onions, topped with tahini sauce.

You’ll find traditional Lebanese foods like stone baked pita, and the falafel or the kafta burger that are Laziz Kitchen favorites, made with their own style of patty and topped with veggies and house-made sauces.

Laziz Kitchen is a popular destination for lunch and dinner. Moudi loves interacting with customers and discovering their reaction to the food, while contributing to Utah’s restaurant scene, which reached nearly $5 billion in sales in 2017.
