M A R A H E B •// Food Tasting
Hello foodies!! Now you can add one more destination to your list, as the Dubai’s posh restaurant Maraheb has opened its doors in Karachi’s Bahadurabad area (located right next to Swenson’s Ice-cream parlor).
🌟 Offering a Yemeni/Arabic cuisine, Mahareb’s ambience has also got a touch of prehistoric cultural heritage.
With calligraphy art on the walls, the restaurant gives pure Arabic vibes!
Coming to Food (Actual) part 😛
🌟 Initially we a were served with Rainbow Hummus Mezze served with warm & toasted pita. As the name Rainbow suggests, hummus was in four colorful flavors: Original, beetroot, capsicum and spicy.
🌟 Second appetizer was their Spicy Lebanese Batata: Potato chunks served with shredded chicken loaded with cheese and dynamite sauce. 😋
🌟 Chiller / Drinks: Ordered Pina Colada which was basic and Guava Chiller & Mint Lemonade which i loved. Quite Refreshing!
The starters were followed by the main course which is definitely an addition to the city’s emerging Mandi culture.
🌟 Saltah Fahsa with Muluawa/ Milawa Bread: Loved the huge garlic naan (muluawa) but personally felt that Saltah Fahsa was just basic ‘ghar wala’ salan :p
🌟 Zorbiyan: This is a latest addition to their menu which chicken/mutton (your choice) served over rice in a ‘mitti ka bartan’ 👌🏻 It is garnished with roasted nuts.
🌟 Kunafeh: This oh-so-sweet Turkish delight was a rich treat to the taste buds served with Pistachio gelato. 🍧
🌟 Red Velvet Milk cake: It wasn’t just an ordinary Red Velvet, you guyyss. It was a Tres Leches cake 🤤 The distinct texture made us all drool and not share it AT ALL, it was so yummy bt the picture didn’t do justice 🙁
BTW, IT IS THE BEST THING ON THEIR MENU.
– Happy Eating
