Tarbush Restaurant : Lebanese Delicacies

We're about to heading to for New Year 2011 celebration before one of us suggest to have our dinner first. Five of us agreed since there is about two hours to midnight at 1200am of 010111.Riding Volkswagen Golf Gti, we headed to Changkat, Bukit Bintang to search for a place to dine.

There were a lot of cars and people along the road at Bukit Bintang. Jammed and packed. We decided to park the car at pavilion and walk, it is much convenient. Oh, how suddenly we decide to go to Bukit Bintang ? We just follow the driver. haha

Pavilion is packed with people, an event by flyfm make it more worst until there is no space for us to get through to the other side of road but to huddle in a crowd of people(mostly students of primary and secondary).

We make it to the other side alive ! haha we walked and stop infront of Tarbush Restaurant. Unplanned plan I can say. we just walk around and suddenly made decision to get into the restaurant.

We asked a table for five and here we are in Tarbush Restaurant.Tarbush Restaurant served one of an accessible, authentic and fine Middle Eastern cuisine.

Five of us were like, “amused” by the radiant interior design of the restaurant with the arabic sound boom around make us wanna dance. hahaha low lightings in that restaurant creates a warmer atmosphere. perfect for chill out and relax. We are placed at second tiers of the building (non smoking area). The ground floor is occupied for smoking area. But I think ground floor have more beautiful decoration than second floor.

Since this is our first time, we took a long time to choose our course. This is my first time eating middle eastearn food, I mean the 'heavy' one. Before this is I've tried Muttabal and Kebab at Jalan Damai, Ampang.

So here is our order :

At first we are about to order for Muttabal with meat for the starter or appetizer but the waiter came out with a better suggestion, Hommous Meat.

Hommous Meat , middle easter bread (I don't know what they called 'em) with a sauce similiar to mayonnese that made from garlic and potato with meat.
Good starter.

Fried Spring Chicken
1/2 fried chicken with fries. This is totally lame, you can get better taste at KFC. No spices tasted from the chicken. Just an bland fried chicken

Tarbush Mix Grill
This one is signature of Tarbush, meat-chicken-prawn all grilled.
The meat is so tender. I like it, with the unique taste of spices it was damn amazing.Fresh prawn but I don't like the chicken, the chicken is not cooked accordingly.

Mix Grill, same as above but without prawn

Briyani Chicken
1/2 chicken with Briyani
I don't like the rice, it taste more "bunga cengkih" than other spices.
the chicken is tender but the taste is just biasa biasa je

Sauteed Potato with Meet
Potato, onion, meat and cashew nut mix together. Tip top ! This is what I expect from the dishes that I haven't tried before. The meat is so tender, the taste are mix prefectly.

This is the view from second floor Tarbus Restaurant

Damn crowded.Packed ! like sardines in the tin.

and we bought this ;p

3 for RM 10

We only realized it is only about 10 to midnight right after we finished our dinner.We took a really long time for dinner.(But to me it's okay rather than be in the sea of people outside there.I hate damn crowded place).We just celebrate the end of 2010 in our own way, with the calm and soothing environment-sitting on the chair and had a nice chatting. haha So we decide to walk around first and there is fireworks once it's reach 1200am

Fireworks at Bukit Bintang;

we stop at pavilion first to grab for tutti fruitti gelato

and then only we went to Z.

TARBUSH, with the awesome ambience.

For people like me, ambience of a particular place is rather important.
I believe that the embience of a restaurant can somehow evokes one’s mood

Foods just okay. presentation of food average. but the satisfaction : great, you know when its about middle eastern dishes - they were likely give a mountain of everything in one plate.

Thanks to Azyad for treated us :) (i'm grateful for the friends who not greedy at all, we treat each other everytime we went out)

Till then
Live your life to the fullest
and Happy New Year 2011 :)
