MIGF 2011 - Al- Amar @ Pavilion KL

Saturday, October 15, 2011

I was thrilled when I received the invitation to attend a food tasting review at Al-Amar Central Kitchen. Because, I can't wait to try their MIGF menu this year especially the dessert!!! Look at the picture below. I can't take my eyes off, it was so BEAUTIFUL!

"wanna have a bite?"

Al-Amar is a restaurant that serving authentic Lebanese foods. I guess, there are not much people out there have try Lebanese foods before. Some people are afraid of the taste that couldn't suit their taste. Honestly, it taste weird when I first try Lebanese foods last year. But this year, I looking forward for the food tasting session after I have tried the foods during the MIGF launching which held at Sunway Hotel.

This year, MIGF theme is "It's raining chef". So, Al-Amar has came out with a creative idea - four season menu. You could pair it with or without wine, priced at RM98++ and RM138++.

There are total 5 course meal at a very reasonable and cheap price.

Sunny Start
Authentic Labneh Trio with Lebanese Southern Tapenade and a Brush of Thyme

The presentation is colorful with 3 different flavors of cheese ball & a breadstick.  The cheese ball was coated with dried mint, dried thyme and paprika with chili.

"JOM makan!" (Let's eat)
Dried mint is my favorite because I like the chilling and refreshing taste. yumm..

Summer Blooms
Apricot Glazed Beetroot Tartar on Mango Leather and Rocket Coulis
A lovely and colorful dish which so matching with its theme - summer blooms. It looks like a blooming flower during summer. Everything on the plate is eatable, even the flowers! Cool right? The purple colour beetroots was presented in cubed and it taste slightly sweet. It was quite refreshing too. At the bottom of the beetroot was a thin slice of mango leather. The whole idea for this dish is perfect and awesome!! It is so cheering when you're enjoying it.

Spinach Bonbon, Soujouk Mille Feuille and Herb Crust Filled with Hommos and Grass Fed Baby Lamb Fillet

Spinach Bonbon  (bottom) is crispy and creamy which filled with spinach filling. For Soujouk Mille Feuille (left), it is a lamb sausage topped with tomato sauce which create a flavorful taste.

Next on the Autumn dish - Herb Crust Filled with Hommos and Grass Fed Baby Lamb Fillet. It is such a cute creation. It is a herb patty which filled with the hummus.

For the main course "Raining Chefs", there are 2 choices.

Raining Chef
1# Braised Rack of Lamb with Stuffed Baby Marrow and Vine Leaves Accompanied by a Garlic Mint Sauce
Sayadieh Rice.
It was one of the highlight, the rice was so flavorful and aromatic. Sayadieh rice is a Lebanese rice pilaf cooked with caramelized onions and broth.

This is the fish that serves together with the rice. It just simply taste delightful.

A platter of breakfast.

Chefs at Al-Amar always did a great job! All the foods are present in a creative way.

After the breakfast, we were brought by the owner of Al-Amar, Mr Joseph to have a short tour in the kitchen. The kitchen is well-organized and most importantly - CLEAN! All of us were required to wear the cap before entering the kitchen.

Besides that, Al Amar’s Executive Pastry Chef - Chef Qoutyba Faki show us the process in making the pastry. We are going to make a fruit tart!

These are the process to make the fruit tart. After that, we were given the chance to decorate the tart with fruits. Be creative!

Thanks so much to Chef Qoutyba Faki and the team.
