With my company client around, and they have requested that they wanted to dine Lebanese food, and just thought of Al-Amar as I always walk pass a lot of times and just wonder how the food taste like. So got this opportunity to try out.


When you walk past the first section, its a very cosy area to dine in.

I just like their interior design, very well decorated with some middle east item on the wall.

With the middle east wordings on in and the best part is in the menu I don even like understand what it writes and the only thing I understand is lamb, beef, and some simple words.
My order was ‘Ice Tea’, RM 10 which I feel is very light in taste. Add in some sugar syrup it just taste weird.
‘Soup of the Day’ taste of the soup is more like veggie soup. Guess I don know how to enjoy this. RM14

I cannot remember what is this called in the middle east terms but you eat this with the fluffy bread that they provide is nice. Goes along very well.
‘Hot Bread’ Middle east style which is FOC and you can eat as many as you want.
I do not really like ‘Lamb Sausages’, it was cook inconsistent. There is one piece taste very nice rich with lamb aroma and mint taste yet juicy, the rest some is dry, some tasteless, just that I have taste better 1 before. RM22 ‘French Fries’ is their favourite. Nothing special to comment on. RM10

‘Lamb Kabsa’ is Steamed Marinated Lamb Meat served with tomato rice which cost at RM44. To what I feel is the meat is soft and tender yet juicy with some tomato puree that pour upon but it is quite plain. I find it nothing fancy.

What I feel for is that the ‘Mixed Grill’ which cost RM58 per plate is pretty expensive that filles with Tawouk, Beef fillet, and Katta skewers. All those skewers are a bit dry, eat it with bread is even dryer, even though the client said is good but I find it is bad with price they charge and the amount they served is so little.

For me, I still find that AL Diafah at Sri Petaling is nicer. The bill comes with no gov tax but add in service charge 10%

I have always been hunting for good Ramlee Burger to eat. Last week when I was hungry and I drove around then thought of 7-11 to get instant noodle. Then mana tau, let me saw this burger stall and this 7-11 as I know the 1 at Jln Imbi there under Otai never really fancy that. Then with quite a number of ppl waiting, then just try la..hungry like hell!

This is how the stall looks like outside the 7-11.

The taukeh pretending to be busy as previously trying to post for me..Lol, then I requested pretend bz. So this is how he come out with. But seriously, he talked a lot. Quite a very friendly guy. Ask him lots of question also.
Then saw this special black pepper sauce which after he friend and dip into, looks good lei~ then he mention that, this is his special sauce. Then he and his partner also trying doing some combination at the moment trying to improve the taste of black pepper sauce and also would come out some different dressing soon. (looking forward on that)


The normal order ‘Sausage Plain’ which order by other customer and I saja took on it.

When he done this, so dammmmmm tempting ‘Double Beef Plain’ also for other customer. When I look at this I was like GULPPP..wish to had that but I cant take beef.
Then comes my order, the usual order ‘Burger Special + Cheeze. During my first bite of this burger, I was like, YESSS!!! at last I found one burger stall that really nice to eat besides the 1 in Section 14 in front of 7-11 also. This burger is juicy with the sauces, which blend the aroma of egg and cheese very very well. I just finish the burger within minutes. At the end of it, was like finger lickin good and YESSS I am satisfied!~ With onli RM4.80 and a coke after it. Haizzz…good to sleeep after that. 🙂
Before I was leaving, they ask me, am I a reporter… I say no lahhhh.. I am a food hunter..lol, then they ask me to take their pic. Which the taukeh.. sitting down and the guy behind is his assistant. Friendly ppl just talk that would not stop. The girls in front?? *ahemm.. I think its their gf qua.
For me, of course looking forward to go back and eat again!

It has been a while since I last eat Carls Junior. They my friends suddenly thought of eating that as they have not tried before. Then okay loh. Looking at the menu do not know what to eat. Then saw this new burger pic which looks very tempting and decided to share with my friend. ‘The Teriyaki Chicken’ (if I am not mistaken) and we ordered the double!! Which is around RM21 for the whole set.

The burger is huge, luckily I shared it with my friends. When start to eat, realize that, this is one of the best burger I ate in Carl’s Junior better than the rest but do not compare with beef. The sauce is just rich in taste mixing it well with the chicken meant and cheese. The breast meat is grill ngam ngam good as its not too hard and meaty yet soft soft. By the time I finish half only realize that, ahh..finish already? Should eat the whole lot !

Never been greedy as it was for lunch and eating this at 4.30 pm and heading for birthday dinner at 7, yet it was a very satisfactory tea time I would say.

My friends from Indonesia came over to visit me, so as usual for night supper what I usually bring my friends go is Murni. I feel that the food is nice and the price is reasonable. One bad thing about here is, if you are very hungry, this would not be a place I would recommend as sometimes, have to wait extremely long for your food to arrive. There are times that I waited for an hour.

Surprisingly for that night, the food came pretty instant. Just order and came around 3 mins later. Which I also kacau the guy, saying that ‘ eh eh, this is the orang cancel order 1 iziit?’ he laugh and walk away. But the food is warm and hot. Just out from the kitchen. Told my friend that she was lucky tonite that the food serve so fast. Maybe knowing that, there are tourist s eating, so priority 1st.

So this round decided to try the ‘Roti Dragon’ which waited for around 15 minutes cost RM10.
I have never tried out this before but knowing that it is one of the famous item there but but but when I cut open, it is like chicken pie full with filling.

The taste is extremely good, the sauce taste is abit creamy, like mushroom soup, the slices of ham in there is a lot and huge, the chicken cubes and slices also a lot. It is like a mixture of mushroom soup and chicken pie to make it like this. The sauce on top of the skin is tomato puree which is to make their spaghetti bolognaise which goes perfectly well with the serve. The nan skin is soft and warm.

By just eating one of this, is enough to kill you off. We eat it till the very last bite. With the price tag on this dragon, I feel its pretty reasonable for such a huge dragon and also ingredient in it.

Recently I have been to O-Town Bangsar South quite often as I found out that, it is the most cosy O-Town Branch to meet up with my friends and it is in the middle.

Then I did notice a burger stall in front of it. So as I am sick of the food over there, so decided to give it a try as some times as I pass by there are not many customer in the stall. Most probably the location of its place. For me, if I were to open a stall, pretty sure that I wont pick that spot. The passerby customer is so little.

This is the burger stall that located in front of the 7-11 over there and it is run by 2 local students which is they are doing part time of it. While waiting for the burger had a chat with the stall owner found out that the cost of operating this stall is not more than RM1k because they are not taking franchise. As I know a Ramlee Burger stall need around RM45k for Otai do not know, never ask before.
They way they are doing the burger sure looks good, juicy, and tempting. The fact is the taste of the burger is not bad, surely can improve more. If the meat were to grill a lil longer, it would be perfect. If they can make their mayonnaise sauce more unique then it would be a perfect burger arleady. The best part of the burger is of course the black pepper sauce that they are using. RM4 for this ‘Burger Special with Cheeze
Overall the taste is not bad, considering that they are new in the industry and surely will go back again some time.
To visit this stall, you must have fate with them, because the stall syok syok open, syok syok not open. No consistency of when they are operating.

For the first time I have to skip my posting that I MUST post this up first. Was very impress with the restaurant, and also the people from Egypt.
 
 
I got very very surprise that in Sri Petaling, there is actually 1 nice Arab restaurant here. Well, if you are nearby here, surely this shop will caught your attention as can consider one of the most good looking shop here during at night. Have to come here is because of company VIP client from Egypt that requested want to dine Arab food. So this is where my ah tau have arrange.

What I mean handsome of course by its outlook more yeng than any of the shops beside la..

When you walk in you will saw this miniature camel on the bottom left then house on top of it and also house next to the top right and of course the antique or signature look of Arab dining accessories.

There is 2 ways you can go up to the restaurant. 1. would be the Lift. 2.Exercise-climbing up the stairs. So I decided to do option 2 cuz I was impress by their own interior decoration full with wall painting, vase, tea pot like the Ali Baba style.. What I could not find is the Gennie in the bottle look thing. Sure I do would like to have my 3 wishes and were walking up you already got 50% of Arab feeling.

When I reached the restaurant I was like wowwww…in my heart. What a nice place that they had change the whole shop to be. All the walls full with different kind of utensils, kitchenware and others.

Alot of collection around the area whereby you can just walk around and look if there is not customer on their respective table. When I arrive I am still able to do that.

It was quite empty during that day, but as it is getting late the crowd start to pour in but most of the customer are from Middle East. The ambiance is surely good.

I don know what is this called but just took a pic as it was just right beside me.

Then of course all of the dining table is full with this tea pot. It is something very unique and to pour the water you have to push the top tip down in order to be able to let the water flow out. Something like a gun, you have to lift up the pin in order to shoot. Was wondering am I able to bring that pot back.

This is the menu which suits with the restaurant ambiances.

Looking at the menu, I look at the pictures to judge what food I want to eat for the night. It seems like everything is yummy and the choices is alot.

So we start off the night with our drinks which is from top left to right

Aden Tea
: taste more like teh halia. Nothing special. so RM10 for this.
Mix Fruit : Did not taste cuz was ordered by the Egyptians RM10
Ice Lemon Tea: uniquely from left is the sugar syrup, then next is the lemonade juice and only reach the pot of Ice Tea. It is for you to mix and match your own style of the taste. Be a mini table bar tender for the night. RM 10 for this.
Carrot Juice: is normal carrot juice. Nothing special RM10
 
There are another 4 more drinks that they ordered which is more unique that they recommend but I cant just go there and took all the pic because it was company VIP client. So just can took what is around me.
 
 
When I first stare at this it looks more like a bun to me but it is what they said high premium bread which I think its Pita Bread, compare to what they had in their home country. We were taught how to eat this with the rest of the entree on the table.
 
The first lesson of the night was to peal the pita bread then make it like a V shape in order for us to dip into the entree and hook some of the sauce up with the ingredient so that you can get to taste more of it.
 
Instead of what I always do is peel, then just deep and hantam the rest of it like a hungry person. 

So end up all our meals were ordered by the Egyptian as they recommend what is good and famous back in their home country. So we just follow the flow for the night.

Start the first entree for the night. At first glance, I thought it was a tuna spread but turns out to be a Baba Ghanough its a mixture of don know what in there but it taste real good when you eat it with the bun you would want a second piece. RM12

ahhh…haaa..This really looks like yogurt. It is some kind of cream which I do not know what it is just eat accordingly. It is also to eat along with the bread. Tahina Sauce’ RM5

All time not my favourite ‘Pickled Vegetable’ RM5 each. I have try my best on tasting it but still yucks!

‘Lentil Soup’ RM 8 Do not have a chance to try this as it was one of the client who ordered it.Haih 
 
This is what I called the Arab Karipop.. It is actually Sambosa Lamb’ RM10
  This is what it looks like on the inside, were very nicely chopped into very mini pieces and while you eat it, you can just taste the lamb taste very nice and perfect with the Tahina sauce given. Due to limited pieces I could not have 2.

To me this is more like a mixture of self mix of everything. It is a bit cold but the taste a bit spicy, sour and mild good to eat with rice as side dish or with pita bread. Taste someting like we used to eat when we took nasi Briyani but of course taste much better.

‘Mixed Vege Chicken Tagen. A very unique pot they have come along with it but the best thing is after so many donkey years that I left high school science lab and at last I get to see it again a ‘Pununu Buncen‘ was there burning to make sure that the dish is kept warm and abit boiling.
 
 It taste more like a Minestrone Soup. Just that the taste in it not as strong as that. It is mild. The texture of the soup is not too thick and too watery. Eat perfectly good with pita bread or with the Al-Diafah rice. I was enjoying my dish with both ways and also recommend my friend to try it. RM15
 
 
The other dish which I did not manage to snap the pic but the client want us to try is the ‘Fried Lamb Meat,Liver and Kidney’ which once I had a mouth of it, I wanted to ask for more. The Highly Recommend by me. RM35
 
 
The other one would be ‘Potato Chicken Tagen. The chicken was well cook to softness and not very spicy but taste very mild. Perfect to eat with the rice for a good dish opener. RM15
  

‘Mixed Grill’ was highly recommended by the client, mentioning we should not miss this. So my friend she ordered this with a mixture of Lamb,Chicken and Beef(if not mistaken). Although it is a bit too dry for the lamb but the aroma is there. If were abit juicy, wow, it just taste perfect. The chicken is tenduri chicken, so nothing much to comment on that as it taste normal and lastly it was a roll of beef which taste so soft and tender, taste like specially marinated. The best of all compare to the other 2. RM35

Madby Lamb’ which is also highly recommend by the client. Which I totally agree with him. Although it is not very big place and the lamb is only 4 pieces which honestly cant really even fill my stomach if there were no pita bread entree.
 
 
The lamb was well marinated, and the taste of the lamb smell is not strong which some people don like and I prefer the taste or smell is stronger. The meat was grilled to perfection, juicy and soft which again were thought to use hand instead of cutleries. Finish my dish and I was hunting for more, look at my friend’s dish see whether I can try to taste her portion. RM35

‘Grilled Prawn’ RM45 Never had a chance to try this but it sure do look very good and taste nice as the feedback came over that the prawn is very fresh.

‘BBQ Chicken-AL Diafah Rice’ The chicken taste normal, nothing much to comment. To me it is more like a tendori chicken. RM20

‘AL Diafah Rice’ The rice is very very nice. The taste of it and the aroma when you eat it with the main dish or the entree you eat. It goes along very well. Was not too dry or oily. RM7  

‘Ping Pong’ By the name itself it sure do sounds very funny. The 2 desert was highly recommend by the client saying that we must try and insist we must. I always thought that their desert would be very sweet but then turns out to be not. But to me after heavy eating I feel that I cant really taste this desert, taste more like the stall at Pavilion selling yau char kuai with the ball ball thing. Taste not much different. RM6  

When I saw this, I was very happy, I thought it was Cinamon stick. Turns out to be not. It is someting soft soft do not really know how to describe. It isTamaribnd’ RM6

 While we were eating the client was telling us about some culture exchange of what they have and adopt in Egypt that I want to post it as another part as I find it very interesting. Part 2, coming soon.
 
 I must seriously say that Egyptions, they are a good food eater. They just eat and eat alot. After all the food on the table, they went off to another table to enjoy themself with a cup of tea and desert.
 
Because of their very good service, and ambience and the food quality not the very best, they deserve it which I also think that their pricing is okay. Total bill came out to RM415
