Last weekend we had a satisfying dinner at Laziz, a Middle-Eastern restaurant located at Solaris Mont Kiara diagonally opposite Cold Storage. Considering that the 4-course meal cost only RM39 (using the MyDeal‘s e-Voucher) we felt it was a pretty good deal for 2 pax. With this MyDeal e-Voucher you really do not need to spend extra because the basics you would expect from a complete meal is covered. Even the inclusive ice-lemon tea comes in big cups and tasted not too shabby either.
The highlight of the deal would be the Middle Eastern style Grilled Spring Chicken. It looked like exactly what was being promoted on MyDeal, which is always a good thing because we really dislike false marketing. It tastes as good as it looks by the way – well marinated with a unique blend of Middle Eastern herbs and spices.
Since the spring chicken is prepared fresh upon order, it could take a little while to reach your table. But that short wait would be worthwhile because you could enjoy chicken while it is still hot, and savor the freshness and juiciness (even the breast meat is quite succulent) that are so well maintained.
There are two choices of salad – either normal Green or Fattoush – a Lebanese bread and vegetable salad. We chose the latter for the obvious reason that we are in a Middle Eastern restaurant. Taste wise it is not much different from the normal salads but instead of croutouns, crunchy Lebanese bread pieces are in place instead.
Mutabal is a popular meze dish made by mashed eggplant and topped with olive oil, usually eaten by dipping bread into it. The smoky flavour it exhibits is not due to fact that it is burnt or anything, just that the eggplant was broiled over an open flame before being made into pulp. Personally, I feel this is an acquired taste for me so I would be sticking to Hummus in future.
For desserts we had a small platter of Baklava consisting of honey-sweetened pastry made with filo pastry filled with chopped nuts. Delectable and crunchy!
Compared to most of the other Middle Eastern restaurants I have been to that look almost like a Chinese chap-fan shop, Laziz has a beautiful interior that gives you the ‘wow’ factor once you enter the restaurant. Judging by the overall quality of the food and service rendered, both SL and I think Laziz is a keeper for sure and we will be returning one day to try more dishes.
