Welcome to our restaurant, where Middle Eastern cuisine takes center stage! Established in 2014 by Sam, our owner, we embarked on a mission to bring the true flavors of the Middle East to the vibrant city of Chicago. Sam, hailing from the holy lands of Jerusalem, was raised surrounded by the rich culinary traditions of his homeland. At the age of 18, he set off to the United States with a dream in his heart and a passion for sharing the authentic taste of Middle Eastern cuisine with others. Thus, Zam Zam (Carry Carry) was born, and we have been proudly serving the Chicago land area ever since.
At Zam Zam, we strive to honor Sam's roots and upbringing by bringing the real Middle Eastern food to your table. Our talented chefs meticulously craft each dish, staying true to the traditional recipes and techniques Sam learned from his family. Every bite reflects the flavors, aromas, and textures that have delighted palates for generations. From the moment you step through our doors, you'll experience Sam's warm hospitality and dedication to delivering an unforgettable dining experience.
Whether you're a seasoned connoisseur or new to Middle Eastern cuisine, we invite you to join us on a culinary journey that celebrates Sam's heritage and the vibrant flavors of the region. Indulge in our succulent Shawarma, savor the crispness of our freshly fried Falafel, and delight in the aromatic spices of our Kababs. Pair your meal with our silky-smooth hummus and tangy Baba Ganouj, and you'll understand why Zam Zam is synonymous with authentic Middle Eastern cuisine in the Chicago land area. Come and experience the real Middle Eastern food brought to you by Sam, who has dedicated his life to sharing his love for the flavors of his homeland.
