Dinner at Al-Amar



During the last day of Aidiladha leave, we went to Pavilion for dinner. It's been a while since we last dine in at a posh restaurant and when Fadzil offered to treat me and the kids, I opt for Middle Eastern food. We finally decided to dine at Al-Amar Lebanese Cuisine Restaurant. Al-Amar is a 4 star restaurant situated at Level 6 of Pavilion. The atmosphere inside is nice, warm and cozy. A bit steep on the price side but worth with the taste of the food we had!




For that night, with no special occasion we dressed up decently in black and red theme: Daddy and twinnies in red, while Mommy and Faaz in black. And just to have fun, I tried to wear my scarf differently, feeling Middle Eastern sket and put on some makeup...hihi :) It's nice that we got to do this once a while. Since we have 3 kids around, there's always a rush when it comes to getting ready for outings. Sometimes, I even forget to put on my lipstick sebab rushing punya pasal :P

Excited me, browsing through the menu...


While browsing through the menu, my eyes suddenly spotted this...never realized this before.!

Mince RAW lamb meat? gulp! Do you dare to eat?!


That night, as usual we ordered Lentil Soup as appetizer. It is a mixed of grinded lentils, potatoes and onions, served with grilled Lebanese bread and lemon wedges. Faaz favourite ;)


Fadzil chose the Oriental dish; Lamb Kabbseh - Steamed marinated lamb served with fragrant basmati rice cooked with tomato and spices, served with special sauce.



Quite tasty if you eat it as a combination, but a bit too flat if you eat the rice without the special sauce. I prefer Al-Rawsha's better...


As for me, I'll go for my usual choice when it comes to Middle Eastern food. Either grilled or Kebabs! :) That night I opt for Kebab so I had Beef Chawarma Platter which consist of Beef Chawarma, served with tarator sauce, fries and condiments. Served with Lebanese bread as well... Delicious! I recommend this dish ;)

Alhamdulillah, dinner that night was cozy. The kids were all behaving well and cheerful especially Faaz, so in the mood to pose. The twins had their milk while we were waiting for the food to arrive and fell asleep right after. Good girls! :)


Aksi blah kanan tu sungguh tak bleh blah kan? :P


Towards the end of our dinner, Faaz managed to be friends with a middle eastern girl who sat at the table next to us. Siap main cak cak ok! Sabar je la anak bujang I. Was trying to snap the girl while recording but she was hiding behind his daddy...

-will update the video later, left it in home lappy plak. hiks! :P -



Anyway, to my habibi, syukran jazilan for the treat. It was fun.

Mimy,

Kami bercita rasa worldwide...western bleh, chinese cuisine bleh, japanese (some) boleh, malay, indian n middle east too! Cuma yg bestnye middle east ni tak teragak2la ke-halal-annye :) Hihihi, skali skala you, release tensen n berhappy2. kat situ takde hummus you. agaknya for Labanese, hummus is not too common kot?

Nadine said...

Nad,

Hihi, yes. Sometimes mmg suka makanana dr middle east. You should try dear. To be safe, try their common or signature food, yg org ramai plg suka order. Jadi, possibility utk tersalah order tu less lah. I nak suggest kat you pun I tak tau ur taste cemana. but if u love kebabs or grilled food yeah, u should try those! marvellous! ;)

Awwwwh, thanks dear! hugs to lil Adam & Ryan ;)

Nadine said...

Mea,

Mmg sejak lahir, d twins pegi mana2 jadi 'superstar':). mesti ada la yg stopped us to take their photos. dulu culture shock jugak tp dah 4 bulan ni dah immune dah. Faaz pun dah immune rasanya sbb skang dia lebih relax..kalau tak dulu dia furious je muka. haha!

tula, faaz makin lama makin mature. come to think of it, dia pun dah nak masuk 3thn early next year kan :) hihi, thanks dear. skali skala dpt make up2 rasa best. slalu mmg sempoi je, x sempat!
