Catch-up over Lebanese cuisine

Met-up with the "Senior Citizen" group for lunch in Sunway Pyramid after months of silence. Well not that silent as we do keep in touch with each other thru phone calls, sms and facebook. Just lack the gathering part :)

We decided to go Lebanese this round and choose Tarbush Restaurant, an Arabic & Lebanase Cuisine. All turned up except for Justin who's working. He missed out so much!

My family was the last to arrived as I got delayed in office due to some miscommunication on renovation permit duh! All has already ordered and we took our time to order ours. Here are some of the stuff we had.

On the house, this is pickled stuff
* the pinkish pickle should be beetroot, the waiter told my friend to inform me that pregnant lady should not consume it (reason unknown to us) *

Sambosa
Not quite an appetizer, these deep-fried spring rolls may be enjoyed as a side dish or for snacks. A guaranteed mainstay at any Middle Eastern table. May choose stuffing of either lamb, vegetable, chicken or cheese.

Mushroom Soup
A thick and satisfying soup made only from the freshest oyster and wild mushrooms

Shish Tawook
Juicy boneless chicken breast marinated and grilled, server with Tarbush Garlic Sauce

The meat is full of aroma and can be eaten without any sauce. However a dip in their garlic sauce is heavenly yum-yum!

Biryani
Rice done the Middle Eastern way, steamed with herbs and spices so the flavour is buried in every grain. May choose either succulent lamb chunks or half baked chicken

The portion is big enough to be shared by two person if you're a small eater.

We adjourned to Zen Cafe for drinks. The group surprised me with a mini mudcake as my birthday was earlier that week.

Chit chatted and we then went our separate ways. Till the next gathering...
