If you have read the previous 2 post - Gala Launch of the Malaysia International Gourmet Festival, you will know that throughout October 2010, there is a variety of festival menu prepared by 30 different restaurants. Al-Amar Lebanese Cuisine which located at 6th floor of Pavilion, KL is one of the restaurant in the list. Lebanese cuisine which is origin from Lebanon is quite fresh to me because it was my first time having Lebanese cuisine.

Cold Mezze Palette

(from left to right) 
Pink Hommos - Mashed chick peas, sesame seed paste  with a touch of their special spices, lemon juices and olive oil. *Yvonne's note: taste a bit sour but really like to eat it together with the pita bread.

Moutabbal with Avocado - Mashed grilled eggplant with sesame seed paste, lemon juice combined with fresh avocado and a touch of garlic drizzled with olive oil. *Yvonne's note: Directly put into the mouth. Yum!!! of coz, serve it together with the pita bread if you want. This Moutabbal taste a bit sour too :)

Rocket Beetroot Salad - A salad with Rocket, beetroot, chopped onions, sumak and an infusion of mustard dressing. *Yvonne's note: Dipped the pita bread with mustard.

When the Cold Mezze Palette served in front of me, the first thing came into my mind was "How should I eat this?" Hhmmm... What do you think? Any idea?

Yeap! Pita Bread to eat it together the Cold Mezze Palette. The bread was freshly from oven and it served while it is hot. Mmmm... yummy..  The waiters keep on refilled the pita bread. Their service was really good!

Arak Chateau Kefraya

After the first starter, you could have a cup of Rose wine. It was my first time taste Rose and not bad! It taste a bit smooth and you will feel your tongue getting warm after you keep continue to drink it. If you don't wanna try Rose wine, then it is alright. Al-Amar is good enough to provide some other choices for their customer.

After the main course, let's have a cup of Arabian alcohol and they named it Arak. They told us that the color of the arak is actually transparent and it turned into white color after they mixed with water.

Aish El Saraya
A creamy pudding topped with postochios and a mix of fruity sauce. Dessert at the end of the festival menu dishes. Sweet and crispy at the same time :)

Lebanese Coffee

A very mini cup of Lebanese Coffee.. The aromatic of the coffee urge me to have another cup :)
