|View of The Royal Golf Club|
These will be my first time trying out something new and different on the taste bud section. Getting to the location was not difficult as it's located at the Kampung Pandan Round about, The Hive in TREC. Don't be alarmed if you reach there, and you can't find it as it's not facing the streets, but it's facing inside, towards the greens of the Royal Selangor Golf Club. Need to do some walking a bit of about 5 minutes from the entrance. Parking is also available.
Byblos Cafe & Lounge is a new Mediterranean/Lebanese concept cafe putting a twist on the Lebanese cuisine. The cafe is named after an ancient city in Lebanon. As I enter the cafe, the feeling that I had was curiosity at what is being offered here. I was looking around and saw some old photo and paintings. Was later told that those photos were of the real Byblos and other places in Lebanon. Being someone who loves history, those are very valued wall of memory.
I love vegetables so my top choice is going to be Hummus and Tabbouleh. You can dip the bread, or roll them, or do it the Pita way... I was told that Hummus is good for health as it's made of chickpeas, rich with protein, an energy booaster, it maintains the cholestrol and cardiovascular. Also suitable for diabetic patient.
My conclusion of being a first timer, the mediterranean / lebanese cuisine, is not about hot and spicy but more towards herbs and fresh ingredients. If you are a meat lover, then these dishes suits you well. They are fabulous with the grilled items, especially the lamb. It's easy on your diet and tummy. hahaha now I know the other side why their ladies are gorgeous...
