Ralph and I ate here for the first time recently on recommendation from a Middle Eastern friend. We've always loved Middle Eastern food and we're delighted to see it growing in popularity here!

When we arrived around 9pm, the restaurant was completely empty which was both perfect and unnerving at the same time.

Anyway, we started with Hummus with Bread (RM9).

Hummus is a tasty Middle-Eastern dip made from chickpeas (also known as garbanzo beans) and tahini (sesame seed paste), seasoned with olive oil, lemon juice and garlic.


We also had Chicken Kabsa (RM17) - one of my favorite Arabic dishes. The portion was surprisingly large (enough for two people to share!).

Kabsa Dajjaj (Chicken Kabsa)

Kabsa is considered the national meal of Saudi Arabia that combines stewed meats or chicken with vegetables and rice. It is especially known for its chicken kabsa, either which includes a half or quarter chicken slow roasted in a variety of seasonings.

The cucumber yogurt and dakkous (spicy tomato sauce) was a lovely compliment to the chicken kabsa.

Sirap Bandung (RM2), a drink consists of milk flavored with rose cordial syrup, giving a pink color – my favorite color.

Well, the food was full of flavor, very comforting and the portions were large enough to send us home stuffed!
