Pyramid Secret Egyptian Food @ Solaris Dutamas

Wrapping up 2013 with an exploration of Pyramid Secret, which we visited once this year & subsequently sought to return to, but it seems to be closed for now; let's hope this mysterious restaurant springs back to life in 2014.

Pyramid Secret is/was run by several Egyptian friends who came to Malaysia in search of opportunities; this was one of the few eateries in a high-profile location like Solaris Dutamas where customers could feast on true-blue Egyptian fare.

Kushari's the highlight here, a moreish medley of macaroni & spaghetti topped with chickpeas, chicken liver, lentils, fried onions, garlic juice & house-made tomato sauce.

Filling & fulfilling, comfort food to the max. Four can share a serving that costs under RM30.

Also intriguing: Mulukhiyah, a somewhat slimy but healthy-tasting broth ...

... made with the leaves of the Corchorus veggie & mixed with chicken. Below RM20.

Pyramid Secret's team was friendly, serving us complimentary desserts even though the two of us were stuffed on what we ordered. The food was exotic to our taste buds & seemed well-priced; we really hope this restaurant will be reincarnated someday, in Solaris Dutamas or elsewhere.

  4. I love the exposed brick, Sean! Some very good friends of mine who came here to Montreal, Canada to live (I met them in 2007, when they came here) are from Egypt. I have tried a little Egyptian food, so this post really resonates with me. Happy New Year to you, my cherished friend.
