Middle Eastern Cuisine

Hello my dear readers,

Last Sunday since was raining we stayed at home and enjoyed a few delicious Middle Eastern dishes.

Nope, I did not cook at home but we have ordered a takeaway from Kazbar restaurant.

Funny or not, we’ve never been in the restaurant but we’ve always ordered takeaways πŸ˜‰ But the restaurant looks really pretty, so one day, we’ll enjoy it in person πŸ˜‰

I love eggplants and when I have Middle Eastern dishes I will always have Babaghanoush, the dish is made from mashed cooked eggplant mixed with tahini, olive oil, lemon juice, and various seasonings and topped with pomegranate.

Babaghanoush – my favorite πŸ˜‹

Of course hummus is a must too πŸ˜‰…made from cooked, mashed chickpeas blended with tahini, lemon juice, and garlic and topped with olive oil.

This is my favourite takeaway from when this COVID-19 situation started.

Our friend Huguette could advise if are authentic dishes or not.

What is your favorite takeaway?

Have a wonderful weekend!

Alway remember to treat yourself well πŸ˜‰

  1. This sounds Tunisian if i’m not mistaken πŸ™ˆ Glad you enjoyed them~ πŸ’–πŸ™ˆ i love eggplants too and we have a similar dish in morocco but with tomato added but without tahini or pomagranate~ it’s called Zaalouk and is super easy to make! I hope you try it~πŸ’–πŸ™ˆ

    1. Thank you very much! Is always good to know πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹ Sound very interesting! Eggplants and tomato…yum πŸ˜‹ I’ll take a look πŸ‘€πŸ˜‰ Thank you very much ☺️

  2. Not my favourite cuisine, but you make it look appetising. As you know, my favourite food is Indian, but we do have a preferred Chinese takeaway, which, here, beats the Indians

    1. Middle Eastern cuisine has an interesting combination of spices exactly as Indian cuisine has too πŸ˜‰ but yes, both have different flavors πŸ˜‹ Sometimes Chinese takeaway is good too πŸ˜‰ πŸ₯‘πŸ₯’

      1. Baklawe…asabe Zainab..Knafeh…Atayef (only in Ramadan tho)…Nutella Knafeh…but they’re all fairly sweet. I don’t think we have something somewhat bitter tbh πŸ˜‚ there’s a lot of other sweets but they include fruit and cream and things I don’t like but it depends on you!

      2. Oh yum! Baklawe is like the Turkish baklava? I believe is delicious πŸ˜‹ When I’ll have occasion I’ll definitely try them πŸ˜‰πŸ˜‹ Thank you very much β˜ΊοΈπŸ˜‰πŸ€©
