WHY GO

Ex­pe­ri­ence the taste and flavours of au­then­tic Le­banese cui­sine in this classy Moor­ish-styled restau­rant.

WHAT TO OR­DER

Or­der the hom­mos bel lahme, chick­pea mash topped with cubed beef. While hum­mus is of­ten served in an unin­spired heap, Al-amar shapes its into a shal­low bowl to hold the juicy pieces of meat. Thick and creamy, its earthy notes are punc­tu­ated by the savoury flavours of the meat. To­gether with warm, airy buns, the hum­mus is a thor­oughly en­joy­able starter.

The mixed grill com­prises sticks of chicken, beef and kof­tas. De­li­ciously suc­cu­lent and flavour­ful, the aro­matic mari­nade seeps through ev­ery inch of the meat. The dish is served with a spicy dip rem­i­nis­cent of horse­rad­ish, mak­ing it even more ad­dic­tive.

Wrap up the meal with a baklava un­like any other. In­stead of many lay­ers of pas­try, Al-amar’s ver­sion is a bite-sized nut bar cov­ered in a thin filo pas­try. With crunch from the gen­er­ous amounts of pis­ta­chios and peanuts in each piece, the dessert has a lovely tex­ture that com­ple­ments the sweet­ness from the syrup.
