WHY GO

T.Dining Malaysia Tatler Best Restaurants - - Mediterranean -

An open kitchen pro­vides the at­mos­phere and aro­mas of the Mid­dle East to pique the ap­petite for a colour­ful, flavour­ful and tasty jour­ney of Le­banese cui­sine here.

A colour­ful menu with lots of pho­tos of pop­u­lar Le­banese dishes is of­fered for those who may be un­fa­mil­iar with food from this part of the world. Por­tion sizes are gen­er­ous with sig­na­ture dishes be­ing hum­mus mouta­bal, hot mezze plat­ter and var­i­ous grills.

Mouta­bal is a creamy aubergine hum­mus made from sesame seed paste and made even more de­li­cious with the ad­di­tion of lemon juice and pome­gran­ate. Freshly baked flat pita bread ac­com­pa­nies the dish and sev­eral oth­ers. Al-amar’s tab­bouleh of cracked wheat, onions, toma­toes and pars­ley is tasty and healthy as well as dec­o­ra­tively served.

For some­thing more sub­stan­tive, order ei­ther a half or whole grilled spicy chicken. Sat­isfy the carb crav­ing with the mixed shawarma plat­ter that comes with more pita bread and a gen­er­ous top­ping of French (Le­banese) fries. Desserts are tra­di­tional Le­banese favourites of baklava, Le­banese ice cream and rose­wa­ter and milk pud­ding.
