Tut’s Egyp­tian Eatery

Time Out Malaysia Kids - - Eating Out -

Tucked away in a cor­ner of 1 Utama Shop­ping Cen­tre is the newly opened Tut’s Egyp­tian Eatery. Started by Egyp­tian broth­ers-in-law Mo­hamed Zein and Mo­hamed Tarek Diab, this ca­sual eatery is a good place to bring the fam­ily for an in­tro­duc­tion to Egyp­tian cui­sine.

The pic­ture-heavy menu is filled with a mix of Egyp­tian dishes along­side more fa­mil­iar of­fer­ings like sal­ads, roast chicken and side dishes like fries and gar­lic bread. For fussy kids who don’t know what they want, get the pop­u­lar tra­di­tional Koshari mixed grain bowl – rice, pasta and noo­dles all in one dish. Other tra­di­tional dishes like the kofta, hawaoshi (baked meat foldover), molokhia stew (made with a veg­etable na­tive to Egypt) and the om ali bread pud­ding (for dessert!) all make an appearance as well.

While wait­ing for the food to be served, kids can amuse them­selves with the place­mats – colour­ing page on one side; in­ter­est­ing, in­for­ma­tive il­lus­tra­tions about King Tut (whom the restau­rant is named af­ter), the food they’re about to eat, or the in­gre­di­ents that go into their dishes on the other. The bright colours, funky hi­ero­glyph­ics on the walls and friendly staff all add to the fun and ca­sual vibe of the place. LG333A, New Wing, 1 Utama Shop­ping Cen­tre, PJ (03 7688 4597/fb.com/tutsmy). Daily, 10am-10pm.
