Hello !

Alia Adel

Partner and COO- Lokali 

I actually started off in the media industry after graduating from AUC with a BA in Communication and Media Arts. I worked in cinema and TV content distribution in different regions namely Europe and MENA. I loved it! But food is my passion. When I'm not eating I think of food, and cooking for my family is the most therapeutic part of my day. As a girl, my brother and I would sit put on the kitchen counter watching my mother cook for us, my grandmother did the same with her own children and I hope to do the same with mine. Food is such a big part of life, growing it, preparing it, cooking it and trying new flavors is considered to many one of the biggest pleasures in life. When the concept of Lokali came to be, the first thing my partners and I looked at was the local ingredients, what kinds we'll be using, from which source and how we'll incorporate them in modern dishes. From then on, we set out to create recipes, develop palettes and explore food combinations. Modern cuisine made with 100% local ingredients is a challenge we value, but it is also something we like to play with. Based on that same value, Lokāli as a restaurant and a brand came to life
