Al-amar

Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Lebanese -

WHY GO

Al-amar is our go-to place for Le­banese food in Kuala Lumpur. The food has been con­sis­tently good and the restau­rant’s cosy set­ting is classy enough for cor­po­rate en­ter­tain­ing and in­for­mal enough to put regular din­ers at ease.

TATLER TIPS

Take your pick from an ex­ten­sive menu that prof­fers am­ple choices of Mid­dle Eastern mezze (ap­pe­tis­ers), sal­ads, soups, mains, rice and dessert.

• One of the most dis­tinc­tive mezzes is mouta­bal hom­mous beiruti, smooth chick­pea mash with sesame seed paste and lemon juice and topped with blanched broad beans.

• An­other sub­lime treat is the siyyediyeh, a hearty serv­ing of fra­grant bas­mati rice redo­lent with fried onions and spices com­ple­mented by chunks of roasted garoupa doused in a tangy sauce.
