Adopt My Shop: Jamjar

Jamjar is a Lebanese restaurant that first opened on Commercial Drive in 2014 and now has locations at UBC and in North Vancouver. The popular eatery serves “old meets new” Lebanese food in a casual, vibrant, and modern setting.
Jamjar’s philosophy is that you are what you eat, and everything it puts on the table is fresh, free of preservatives, and prepared daily from products sourced through local suppliers and growers. Spices are even flown in from Lebanon to recreate a traditional experience.
The restaurant is currently offering its famous bowls, including the Chicken Tawouk Bowl, Falafel Bowl, Makali Bowl (with cauliflower), and Vegan Sampler (with a little bit of everything vegan), as well as other menu favourites like its fattoush, mezze, and halloumi fries, all for takeout and delivery.
Jamjar has gift cards available and is also accepting orders using DoorDash and Uber Eats. It has also involved itself in a local meal-plan initiative called Silver Lining where diners can order meals for multiple days. The bi-weekly or monthly meal plan gives orderers five rotating cuisines and has multiple ordering options, including a deal that gives you five meals a week for four weeks for $299.
