Last week was a decadent one for me. I kind of slid on my 'eat clean' campaign, but I am sure that you will agree it was worth it after a taking a look at these delectable photos.
In the West, we have a myriad of different cultural cuisines; nothing surprises us. However, I must say that in the Middle East, their take on our 'usual' types of menu items, did surprise me- in a good way.
From crepes to breakfast and lunch served with Halal bacon, every morsel was yum...so good.
Except for the first and last photo, these dishes are pretty universal.
The other dishes which were for breakfast and lunch are synonymous with this region. And this includes the presentation, which for me, is even better than the taste. And that is hard to beat!
The flavour is so intense, but the seasoning is really a very light melody of different tastes.
It may seem as an oxymoron, but when you do get a taste you will see what I mean.
No one flavour over powers the other.
So, next time you stumble across a Middle Eastern restaurant, please give it a try and introduce your taste buds to a whole new experience.
