Restaurant In House - Arabic Cuisine (Solaris Damansara)


Solaris Damansara definitely not the area I frequent and some reason or rather, I had to come over. Of course after settling that matter, lunch I opted at this restaurant. I sat, menu came and I ordered. While waiting for the food, I noticed the hale and exhale "Shisha" which I had already seen listed on the menu and now the customers including the young ones proudly blowing the white flying smoke in the air. Well, cultural shock for me, so I got busy with eating - the sambosak lamb while sipping the mango lassi and later the baklawa and Arabica coffee.





The sambosak is like fried spring rolls and between the chicken, lamb and cheese filling, I opted for lamb. Crispy and crunchy pastry and minced lamb tucked inside. the rolls were lovely to be eaten after just a gentle dip in the chilli sauce. The sauce however I think the bottled sauce - sweet instead of spicy. Definitely not to my liking.
The mango lassi is worth mentioning. Creamy, thick and I think pure mango for the refreshing punch. Loved!   
The baklawa  - pastry sheets decked with crushed peanuts and totally coated with sugary syrup. This dessert definitely the Arabic delight for the once a while sheer delight. Only 3 pieces I finished though I didn't want to leave behind the other two. But these overly sweet baklawa just wouldn't go down the throat.

Then came the coffee. Ahh!! stylish the cup and stylish the holder for the coffee. The cardamom flavoured coffee with sugar served separately made me feel as though I was there in the Arab nation. The coffee so nice and equally nice the feeling of sipping the coffee from the beautiful authentic cup.

Within 45 minutes, lunch was over and instead of sitting and watching the blow in the air smoke, I paid RM38.50  and left -
