When Jennifer and I came back from our Miri day trip earlier this week, we didn’t have any dinner arrangement in line. We agreed to have dinner on our own since we did not know what to have for dinner.
While we were waiting for our respective cars to warm up in the parking lot of EMPIRE Hotel & Country Club, Jennifer asked if I want to join her and CY for dinner at Amsarra Shawarma. I was okay with it as I have yet visited the restaurant since it had relocated from Little Soho.
Without further ado, let me show you what we had for dinner the other night!
Detox | B$4.80
ginger, spinach, celery, coconut water, turmeric root, green apple
For B$4.80, I was expecting my juice to be served in a glass instead of a takeaway plastic cup. LOL! All of their healthy juices were cold pressed. Hence, all the good things and nutrients stay as the fruits were being juiced.
Taste wise, it was pretty good and tasted distinctive of celery. I wouldn’t recommend this if you cannot stand the taste of celery, ginger and turmeric at the same time. I am not a fan of celery but I could tolerate if it was served in the form of juice. How odd!
Lamb Shashuka | B$9.00
Shashuka is one of my favorite food for it’s sour and spicy based stew. It came served with three pieces of their house made herbed pita breads. On top of the Lamb Shashuka was two poached eggs, chunky tomatoes and lamb slices.
The stew was sour and spicy enough for my liking. It paired extremely well with the herbed pita breads. However, it would be nicer it came with more tomato stew. The dish was served with a generous portion of lamb slices. The first slice which I ate was extremely tough and I think they got the muscle part. The rest were okay though.
Lamb Meshwi Shawarma with Rice | B$10.50
This was Jennifer’s choice of dinner. It had the same lamb slices as I did in my Lamb Shashuka but served with rice, greens, grilled tomatoes, hummus and some sauces on the side. It was pretty good and the portion could easily feed two small eaters.
