The strategy holds up when dining at award-winning restaurant Mabruk at the luxurious, prime property of Hotel Sahara Star.
Located near the poolside, the atmosphere is serene and enchanting. An open-air meal under the Sahara Dome is surely enticing.
Chef Jihad El-Shami personally supervises your requirements and ensures you are satiated with a soulful meal, made with love.
The service is bang-on and pampering.
What we tried:
The Cold Mezze platter comprising of Hummus, Moutabal,
Mouharama (must try), Fattoush, Babaganush and Tabbouleh. Each variation lives up to the adage “the belly rules the mind”. The richness in texture, perfection in taste, drooling juices with flavours and you get impatient to try the next platter.
What amazes you is that the cold mezze spread is yummy and healthy unlike the cheaper versions available with the competition.
The Hot mezze spreads out Falafel, Sambousek, Batata Harra, Kibbeh, Kafta Meshwi and DJAJ Mosahab. Variations to the different meats which have been popularised by the Mediterranean cuisine have been perfectly cooked with subtle spice elements. There is never an overdose or chewy moments. All seem just perfect.
Rafissa D JAJ, a chicken and lentils preparations has tinges of the Indian flavours. A hearty and wholesome meal to be relished with some breaks.
Capsi Roz – tomato rice topped with capsi spices showered with loads of dry fruits. Slight aroma of the spice, just perfectly cooked.
Baklawa – just perfect for the sweet-tooth lovers.
Mish Moush Bloz – something new I tried and relished. Subtle on the sweetness, unified on the taste of the apricots.
Surely coming back again once they introduce a new menu.
