Hadhramout Restaurant

The first thing that caught my eye were the lights and hung from the ceiling at Hadhramout. Ain't that beautiful? I love the shadows that the light makes on the ceiling too.

Hadhramout Restaurant is located at Lot 787A, Chulan Square, Jalan Raja Chulan (03-2142 2744) and serves Yemeni cuisine. When Jason asked if I wanted to tag along for this review... of course I said Yes!

The Kebbeh came first.

Minced lamb with a mixture herbs and spices which tasted really good. Deep fried on the outside, moist and juicy on the inside.

The shrimp cocktail was overflowing with thousand island... I was afraid the sauce will fall off the edge when I angeled the bowl to take pictures ;p

The shrimp had a really strong shrimp smell to it. Reminded me of the dried mini shrimps (Har Mai/Heh Bee)I can find back in Pangkor.

The mixed grill of lamb and chicken was interesting. Different cuts of the lamb were used. Different row of meat is marinated differently. I did find the meats a little too dry for my liking. Folks in Yemeni like their meat well done?

Fattoosh! HAHAHA! Sounds really cool! Fattoosh is the salad mix in the middle. (anti clock wise) Pea and carrot salad, Baba Ghanouj (Egg plant dip), hummos (Chick pea dip), coleslaw, Tehenah (TOTALLY LOVE THIS...but I have no idea what this is. Fermented goat's milk yogurt?) and the last I don't know the name.

*waves the wand* Fattoosh! HAHAHAHAHA! ok.. sorry, I sedang SYOK sendiri ;p (I'm amusing myself)

The Baba Ghanouj dip was quite nice.

But the Tehenah was nicer! I can see myself having this with naan for breakfast every morning.

The freshly made naan bread.
