Byblos Lebanese Cuisine at TREC KL: Restaurant review
Bearing the name of the culturally charismatic city north of Beirut, Byblos carries the torch commendably for Lebanese cuisine, with a menu that reflects how the Middle East meets the Mediterranean. Extremely few restaurants in KL offer kibbeh nayeh, minced raw lamb that’s mingled with fine bulgur cereal for a smooth, subtly spiced spread with a mellow meaty flavour (RM36).
Other intriguing headliners include hummus crowned with shredded beef shawarma (RM27), sauteed chicken liver marinated with pomegranate molasses (RM20) and creamy, tangy red lentil broth (RM15), buoyed by freshly baked clouds of Lebanese bread, warm and soft, light and fluffy. Lebanese wine and arak (the latter should suit admirers of absinthe) are available; if you stay on past 10pm, live Lebanese musical entertainment may await.
