Middle eastern cuisine isn’t that popular in Singapore but there are a few restaurants that have existed for a while now. I decided to dine here on walk in basis and was surprised to see the place full on a Tuesday night. They do have nice seats with more exotic middle eastern feel, but only 2 of such tables in the restaurant, so I do recommend making reservations for the best experience. Anyway, sitting by a regular table wasn’t that bad either. Just that it was pretty noisy and crowded.
Cava – $10.50++
Made it in time before happy hour closed in 5 minutes!
Halloumi Meshwi – $14.00++
Grilled halloumi cheese served on bed of lettuce and spicy olives
Halloumi has it’s origins from Cyrpus but is also popular in middle eastern countries. You don’t see halloumi everywhere but definitely available in middle eastern restaurants.
Mixed Grill Platter – $42.00++
Lamb chops, shish taouk, shish kebab, lamb and chicken kofta kebab served with three different sauces (harissa, harissa mayo and garlic)
I was aiming for the lamb chops but for variety sake, this platter is good because it comes with many kinds of meat. This would serve 2 comfortably with 2 pieces of everything. Overall I found the quality of the platter to be better than another middle eastern restaurant I’ve tried earlier this year. It was satisfying.
If you have the Entertainer App, 1 for 1 on main courses is applicable here. I found the original prices to be pretty fair and affordable to begin with so having 1 for 1 makes it a bargain.
Overall: The better Lebansese food I’ve had in Singapore so far.
