Here comes the Arabic Cold Mezze which included Hummus, Muhammara, Baba Ganoush, Beetroot Moutable, Cheese Salad, Burgul di Banadoura, Fattoush etc.

I was impressed by the presentation, taste and also how fresh the dishes were prepared. I was in love with the Beetroot Moutable and I ended up having one packet of Arabic bread for it.

Cold Mezze

From the Hot Mezze there was a lavish spread of Chicken Liver, Shish Taouk, Lamb Kofta, Cheese Sambousek and Spinach Fatayer.

Everything was prepared fresh, warm and served hot.

The Lamb Ouzi was prepared with so much delicacy, the meat all juicy and tender. The rice was so well mingled with the meat. It played a flavorful taste which really melted in my mouth will all its deliciousness.

From the mains I tried the Asian Chicken Curry which was prepared the same way my mom cooks in her kitchen, all the spices mingles so well with the Chicken pieces and the gravy tasted so divine and delicious.
