Beirut Grill is a Lebanese restaurant located near the colorful and buzzing Arab Street in Singapore. I’ve always been a fan of Middle-Eastern food along with their colourful carpets, spice shops and shisha… never fail to fascinate me. I love Dubai since I first visited it last year therefore I am making another trip there.
So where can one get a good hummus, kebab, and falafel in Singapore? I strongly recommend Beirut Grill!
Order their juices for its so refreshing and delicious! The natural sweetness from the Fresh Watermelon Juice S$6.50 and Lime Freeze S$8 with mint.
Hummus is mostly made from mashed chickpeas along with other ingredients. I love love love hummus and after I finish dipping my pita/naan bread, I’ll scoop big spoonful of hummus and have it as though I’m having ice cream! LOL So imagine my excitement when I was presented with not just one but a variety of hummus in different flavours! My favourites in order are Original, Basil (a little spicy but super shiok), Pumpkin with caramelised onions, Jalapeno (a tad too spicy for me but the mister loves it) and Avocado (bitter so I’ve feedback to chef).
These flavours except Original are not in the menu yet but you can order it already! Just let any of their friendly staff know or better still, show them the pictures on my blog and they will help you with the rest!
The highlight of our makan session making this carnivore super happy! I saw some other customers having it as well and was secretly hoping I’ll get one of this too. I was a little skeptical initially cos the meat looks tough hanging there though I was loving the presentation. To our surprise, every piece of meat hanging there is sooooo delicious, juicy and tender! Mixed Grill Kebab S$36; lamb chops, lamb kebab, tikka kebab, shish taouk served with grilled vegetables and oriental Arabic rice! It is so good even the veggie-eating mister kept going for the meat!
I heard that this is Chef’s signature dish and almost every customer from each table would order a plate of these Beirut Lamb Chops S$27! I am not a fan of lamb meat because of the strong lamb taste and cos I’m born in the year of goat/lamb. hahaha people don’t believe me when I said it but its true. So anyhow, the mister cut a piece and his eyes light up (I ain’t kidding you) and told me I HAVE TO TRY THIS! He said the lamb is so tender and delicious he would have thought he was having chicken if he didn’t see the dish! I took a bite and love it for the lamb was marinated with Arabic herbs and spices and char-grilled to perfection! Yes, I will order this dish again!
Now now, don’t let this white pale looking dessert deceit you! This Lebanese dessert Mouhalabiah S$6 is a milk based pudding with rose water topped with honey and Lebanese nuts. Perfect way to end any meal with this lovely sweet dessert. We didn’t stop till we finish every bit of it!
We had such a great time lunching at Beirut Grill and while dining there, we heard phone calls coming in for dinner reservations. I’m definitely going to be one of those returning customers knowing the delectable Middle-Eastern delicacies are so authentic and tasty!
