Salaymeh Abdullah, professionally known as Seka Abdullah, is the visionary leader behind the remarkable growth of a Middle Eastern zabiha halal smoked meat empire. As the Co-founder and CEO of the global Meat Moot restaurant franchise, Seka Abdulla has orchestrated the creation of a Middle Eastern barbecue empire in a remarkably short span of a year and a half.
Beneath the remarkable ascent of Meat Moot lies a narrative of passion, unyielding determination, and the irresistible allure of exquisitely smoked meat. It all began in the heart of Istanbul’s historic Beyoğlu district, during the summer of 2021, a cultural epicenter renowned for its vibrant art, nightlife, and entertainment scene.
Seka Abdullah, an unwavering aficionado of all things meat, embarked on a quest to craft an extraordinary dining experience for fellow meat enthusiasts. Drawing inspiration from his culinary explorations around the world, he dedicated himself to perfecting traditional smoking techniques. Driven by the desire to bring his culinary creations to life, Seka set out to establish a restaurant that would not only tantalize taste buds but also evoke a sense of nostalgia. And thus, Meat Moot was born, with “moot,” an Arabic slang term signifying “to die for.”
With unwavering determination and steadfast belief in his vision, Seka flung open the doors of the inaugural Meat Moot restaurant. The intoxicating aroma of slow-smoked meats permeated the air, quickly spreading the word about the delectable flavors awaiting diners. Locals and tourists alike flocked to the historic apartment, eager to embark on the gastronomic journey that Seka had meticulously crafted.
As the popularity of Meat Moot soared, Seka’s culinary expertise captured the attention of renowned chefs and discerning food enthusiasts worldwide. Fueled by his relentless pursuit of excellence, he extended the Meat Moot dining experience beyond Istanbul, drawing an international audience with his masterful smoked meat creations.
From the opulent streets of Dubai to the bustling markets of Abu Dhabi, the distinctive aroma of Meat Moot began to permeate, leaving an indelible mark on the hearts and palates of both locals and tourists. With each new location, Seka ensured that the essence of his modest beginnings was preserved. Regardless of how far the reach, every restaurant retained a unique touch of historical charm paying homage to the first Meat Moot establishment.
The Meat Moot Restaurant chain soon made its presence felt in vibrant cities across the United States, Jordan, Egypt, and beyond, with the recent grand opening of an Abu Dhabi location marking the 18th in the Meat Moot empire. Today, the Meat Moot brand, meticulously built from the ground up by Seka, serves meat enthusiasts across twelve countries.
What distinguishes Meat Moot is the unparalleled customer experience it offers to smoked meat aficionados. Visitors are treated to a regal banquet and a feast of world-class garnished meat recipes. It’s a place where tradition seamlessly blends with modernity, featuring a state-of-the-art kitchen alongside a meat curing facility.

Today, Meat Moot stands tall as a symbol of Seka’s extraordinary journey and his unwavering commitment to his craft. The global restaurant chain is celebrated for its impeccably smoked meats, prepared with the utmost care and attention to detail. Every succulent bite serves as a testament to the relentless pursuit of culinary perfection and the creation of an experience that transcends mere dining.
