Lebanese Garden Restaurant @ Ampang

January 23, 2010

There's not much of a real garden here, but a small fountain cultivates the illusion of being close to nature. The main attraction, however, is the home-cooked fare prepared by the outlet's friendly Middle Eastern owners.

Warak ainab, steamed grape leaves stuffed with rice and veggies. A simple snack that's perfect for whetting the appetite.

Labneh, strained yoghurt with olive oil. The ideal dip for the complimentary warm bread. Not too sour, not too oily.

Moussaka. Soft, healthy-tasting aubergines and tomatoes. Absolute comfort food that tasted amazingly light; we felt like we could have eaten this all evening without feeling full.

Lamb marinated with pomegranate. Tender, meaty and flavoursome.
