Shop/Food Review

Mr Good Says:

If you are looking for Middle Eastern food, Persian carpets or Turkish lamps, Kampong Glam is the right place to look. Also known as the Arab Quarter, Kampong Glam is bounded by Ophir Road, Victoria Street, Jalan Sultan and Beach Road. An important landmark here is the Sultan Mosque. Among the myriad of restaurants, we have discovered Byblos Grill, an authentic Lebanese restaurant opened by Lebanese Master Chef Mohamad Slim who has 15 years of F&B experience.

 

If you haven't tried Lebanese food, it is actually quite similar to having Greek food (with different names). Personally, I think that some similarities can also be spotted between Lebanese and Indian food, especially in their choice of carbohydrates. For example, Lebanese rice looks like Indian Briyani; basmati rice is also used but it is cooked with less spices compared to the Indian Briyani. Flat breads are also featured extensively in both cuisines.

Pita Bread

To ensure that the Lebanese food served at Byblos Grill is as close to the original Lebanese taste as possible, the key ingredients (Olive Oil, Pomegranate Sauce, Sumac, etc) are directly imported from Lebanon. Chef Mohamad even shipped in a traditional oven so that he is able to serve freshly baked breads right from his kitchen. In addition to breads, Hummus, Labneh (Yoghurt) and Halloumi Cheese are also made fresh daily in the restaurant.

Mezza Platter

At Byblos Grill, hot meals are cooked only upon order so I will recommend you to start with a Mezza dish (appetizer) while waiting (15 to 20 mins). If you are in a group, the Mezza Platter which consists of Hummus, Babaganoush, Labneh, Moussaka'a and Arabic Salad served with warm Pita Bread will be perfect for sharing.

Lamb Chops

For mains, don't miss the charcoal grilled lamb chops! They are so juicy and tender with a delightful smoky flavour.

Wara'Inab

For those of you who are already familiar with Lebanese cuisine, you may want to go for the more unusual (for non-Lebanese) dishes like Wara'Inab (stuffed vine leaves). Personally, I wasn't able to appreciate this dish.

This is thick and more naan-like.

Wara'Inab (S$11.90++)
This is a cold dish of fresh vine leaves stuffed with rice and a mixture of other ingredients. I can't appreciate this dish.

A dessert made with rose, milk and rice. Not bad.
