Lamb Ouzi, These dish is usually made with rice, meat, vegetables, and a mixture of spices. The spices used  are largely responsible for its taste, these are generally black pepper, cloves, cardamom, saffron, cinnamon, black lime, bay leaves and nutmeg. The main ingredient that accompanies the spices is the meat. The meats used are usually chicken, goat, lamb, camel,beef, fish and shrimp. The spices, rice and meat are augmented with almonds,pine nuts, peanuts, onions and sultanas. A popular way of preparing meat is called mandi. This is an ancient technique that originates in Yemen, whereby meat is barbecued in a deep hole in the ground that is covered while the meat cooks.

The Lamb Ouzi at Imperium was so delicious and the flavor of the rice was done by the lamb itself, all juicy and meaty. My personal hit.
