What an absolutely delicious wrap ($17). It came with grilled marinated chicken breast. The inside was filled with tomatoes, pickles and garlic sauce. It was served with sweet potato fries and coleslaw.

It was a really flavorful wrap, with the marinade enhancing the delightfully tender chicken and the garlic and tomato flavor enhancing each other. And that delicious hummus in the background lending its deep earthy notes to the dish. Every mouthful was so full of flavor.

Finally I loved the sweet potato as well; they made the perfect vessel for hummus or any of the delicious dips that were provided with the other dishes.

Shawarmas were made famous by the Avengers and I really wanted to give it a shot. This $18 bowl consisted of creamy hummus, quinoa, crunchy vegetables (lettuce, tomato and cucumber), chickpeas, harissa and drizzled with tahini sauce. Garnish was a simple sprinkle of almond flakes and a lemon wedge.

The pieces of lamb alone were mindblowing. Super tender, juicy and flavorful, they were perfectly cooked. Not chewy at all, but yet with that distinct muttony taste. The veggies were super refreshing and needed in a bowl otherwise full of very strong flavors. The tang of the tomato was exactly what the dish needed to balance out.

It tastes like a zhnged-up bowl of Stuff'd. With exceptionally delicious meat.

This $21 platter was super value for money. It came with a side of hummus with pita bread and vegetable sticks (celery, carrot and cucumber) and an incredible variety of Mediterranean snacks.

There were these warak enab (the two leafy looking rolls) which turned out to be stuffed grape leaves. They had a rice and vegetable stuffing and tasted...interesting.

Labneh is a type of Greek yogurt with a dash of olive oil. It was thick, creamy and tangy. Perfect to dip heavier meats and other deep fried stuff in.

There were 2 of the most delicious falafels I've ever had. These flat disks of ground chickpeas were crispy and delightfully spiced. Pairing perfectly with a savory tahini sauce.

The kibbeh here is made of spiced ground beef shaped into balls, stuffed with rice and vegetables and deep fried with more yogurt sauce. Kind of tasted like an inverse onigiri.

Finally, tabbouleh is a parsley and tomato based salad. It's certainly interesting eating parsley as the main component of a dish rather than as a garnish. But it turned out to be really delicious and refreshing.

This is my first Middle Eastern experience aside from Stuff'd burritos. And I have been missing out for the last 22 years!

This $18 platter came with hummus (mashed chickpeas), muhammara (red pepper and walnut) and moutabal (eggplant).

The hummus was incredibly creamy and rich which surprised me because that isn't a flavor profile I'd normally associate with chickpea. The muhammara was so hearty and savory, with just a hint of earthiness from the walnut. The moutabal...I would never have guessed it was from eggplant. I was pleasantly surprised to find it so slightly sweet, so different from the bitter aftertaste of eggplant that led me to avoid it in my childhood days.

And the pitas were irregularly shaped, which made them all the more charming because of their handmade nature. They were chewy and warm and just the perfect carbohydrate vessel to deliver the dip. Or the carrot sticks, cucumber and celery for a more refreshing change.


Hummus was πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ»πŸ‘πŸ» haven’t had it in a long time! I think you can give the steak a miss and just order plain hummus!!

Ordered an eggplant stew and a chicken pistachio kebab (~$24 each). As with most places we always find it's pricey if not for burpple beyond. That said, it was PACKED during lunch on a Thursday, and I doubt many were using burpple. Food was not too bad too! Quite liked the kebabs. Eggplant stew was a little spicy and kind of an acquired taste but enjoyable nonetheless!
