Medina @ Telawi, Bangsar

An oasis of authentic Middle Eastern fare in the heart of Bangsar.

Carrots with parsley & garlic. A bit too mushy & overcooked for our liking.

Hummus, the house specialty of chickpeas with tahina sauce, garlic, parsley & olive oil. Well-prepared, but hummus isn't exactly an exciting recipe.

Couscous Royale, topped with lamb, chicken and veggies. Hearty comfort food, overflowing with succulent meat skewers and warm, delicate eggplant.

Lamb tagine, a lamb shank stew with honey and almond. The meat falls off the bone with ease and tastes superb with the sweet, nutty gravy.

Thankfully, wine is served. Can't always count on it at a Middle Eastern outlet.
