Here’s a little sneak peak of what Corniche’s Arabian Buffet has to offer!
HummusI think I had too much of this appetizer that I partnered with the flat bread. I was eating Hummus all night even with my main entreé! The nutty flavor from the chickpeas and the delicious creaminess of the dish most certainly called for seconds (even a third and a fourth)!
Spiced Free Land Chicken Marinated in Middle East SpicesI opted for an open-faced Shawarma and drizzled it with Tahini-Garlic sauce. I requested for an additional serving of the creamy sauce on a separate bowl because the sesame taste of the Tahini sauce paired wonderfully with chicken. The spices permeated well in the chicken meat, too. This station deserved another visit!
Garithes Yiouvetsi or Baked Prawns with Feta RuccolaI swear, this dish sent me straight to the moon! The bland taste of the steamed prawns, the saltiness from the feta cheese and a little bitterness from the Ruccola all come together perfectly with every bite!Partner it with plain Basmati rice and you’ll never go wrong with this combo!
Baked Salmon with Middle Eastern SpicesThe flavors of the different spices blended very well with the fresh salmon. A simple yet healthy dish perfect for those who are a tad more health conscious than others.
And dessert, I tried the Kunafa/Kataifi that I fell in love with!Made of cheese, crispy dough strips topped with crushed pistachios. This particular dish isn’t really sweet so it goes well with the other sweet desserts. A perfect accompaniment to tea.
Of course an Arabian dinner wouldn’t be complete without Baklava!I’ve tasted different versions of Baklava. There’s the chewy, semi-chewy and semi-flaky types. Corniche’s version is made of thin filo pastry with nuts and honey. Just the right amount of sweetness and stickiness.
So, are you Craving for some Arabian food already? Then, head on over to Corniche and have your fill!
