Almaz by Momo @ Mall of the Emirates, Dubai

This intensely atmospheric establishment transports customers to another world beyond its confines in one of Dubai's gargantuan malls; Almaz tackles North African cuisine - delicious dishes like pan-fried chicken liver with pomegranate sauce (order it!), pigeon pastilla flavoured with almonds & cinnamon (order it too!) & couscous with a mixed meat platter of roasted lamb shoulder, charcoal chicken & merguez sausage, plus semolina & vegetable broth (order everything!). Alas, alcohol is verboten, so customers must make do with mocktails that blend, say, pomegranates with lychee, raspberries & rose water.

  1. Very classy place, nicely done. Interesting fare - chicken liver with pomegranate sauce, that sounds really special. Yet to get the chance to try anything mid-eastern.

    1. Suituapui: i would love to have that liver again ... We don't often see liver cooked in very different recipes at contemporary restaurants in kl :)

  2. Haven't tried any African cuisine before, maybe this September will have a chance, hehehe.

    1. CK: ooo, sounds like we're both gonna be out of KL in September ... But in different continents, heheh :)
