Avari Towers has some serious obsession with providing great quality food and it has gained a reputation for it’s food festivals since past few years. If you haven’t been to any of such festival you are definitely missing on the best of the cuisines from around the world prepared by experienced chefs. I have been to quite a few of them, so yeah!! Take my word.
Asia Live at Avari Towers is hosting Arabic Nights themed “Arabic Food Festival” from 26th October 2018(today) to 28th October and it is a buffet of famous Middle Eastern delicacies like Fatoush, Hummus, Kabsa, Shish Taouk, Shawarma, Basboosa, UmmAli etc. You have to leave your Pakistani pallette at home to experience authentic flavors although the head Chef Naim said that he’s giving a little bit Pakistani touch but he don’t want to compromise on authentic recipes & ingredients of Arab delicacies. All the dips & sauces are being made in-house from scratch which will give the diners a unique taste profile.
What to Expect in the Menu?
Well, somethings can be a surprise entry but they are offering delicious & authentic spread of cold mezze, salads, desserts and main courses from Middle East with live music & Arabian Night ambiance.
A mezze or meze is an integral part of Middle Eastern cuisine which is served as appetizers but can easily be used with the main course dishes to enhance flavor profile. At Avari Towers Asia Live Arabic Food Festival there’s a wide spread of dips & salads.
Arabic mezze has dips with spreadable consistency & quite rich in texture and flavor. For the appetizers, I highly recommend to have Muhammara (Roasted red peppers and walnut dip), Baba Ganoush (Roasted Eggplant spread) as I just loved the freshness of it. Muhammara had in house made molasses of pomegranate giving it a unique tangy taste profile & walnut grits made it a treat. Baba Ganoush was so refreshing, just like finding a tree in the middle of a desert. Other usual suspects are Hummus, Tabbouli Fatoush etc. Enjoy them all with Arabic/Pita bread & you don’t even need a main course. It is that satisfying.
I would love to stuff my pantry with a bottle of each Muhammara, Hummus & Baba Ganoush for my midnight snack cravings.
It is a tough choice, trust me. To have shawarma or Kasba rice or the amazingly tender lamb chops or the exquisite Shish Taouk? Won’t mind the glistening rice, mince & cheese stuffed goodness of peppers, zucchini and Brinjals. Oh!! My my. What a spread it is. What will you pick to eat first?
I recommend starting with Chicken Kabsa Rice, put some Muhammara & Fatoush with Summac Onions on the side, add Shish Taouk & a lamb chop. Drizzle fresh lemon juice & enjoy the Arabian night while you’re there. Thank me later.
Traditional Arab desserts are a labour of love & made in house from scratch by the Internationally experienced Chef Naim his team. He has served for two decades in Middle East &also was the Captain of Pakistani Chefs team during Foodistan competition apart from other milestones of his culinary career.
I highly recommend Umm Ali (Puff pastry based gooey warm goodness you’ll never forget), Baklawa & Basbousa in case you can’t resist, Try them all like me. Ah!! My sweet tooth was in heaven.
