Abu Dhabi Field Report – Lebanese Flower

Hello everyone!
Last night marked day one of my adventures in the United Arab Emirates with the hubs, mom and dad. Dad moved here six months ago and he’s been exploring dining locations ever since. As you can tell, the acorn doesn’t fall far from the tree!

Every time you ask my dad how he is, he would regale us with tales of his makan adventures so we weren’t surprised that we headed to his favourite restaurant of the moment, Lebanese Flower, straight off the plane.

Lebanese Flower isn’t a very posh restaurant and is very popular with the takeaway crowd, serving grilled meats and accompanied delights, it sees a steady stream of customers, ready to fill their hungry bellies.

Being my first stop, it’s hard for me to say if this is part of the regular Emirati diet, but the resturant seems to cater to citizens of the world. The family at the next table were from mainland China (with tell tale Beijing accents), there was a bloke dress in traditional Arabian garb (robe and head dress) at the table behind us and some Syrians all wolfing down the salty pickled appetisers with hommus and flat lebanese bread.

My dad often talks about ordering meat by the kilo but as it was past midnight Singapore time, we settled for some hommus, felafel (veggie cutlets) and salad for a start.

The main event – Succulent grilled lamb chops for 1 (six pieces of meat) and a whole chicken grilled to perfection, crispy skin, tender and juicy chicken, accompanied with a serving of unsalted soggy fries – take that, Kenny Rogers!

I must say that the meats are really rather salty but accompanied with tart chopped salad as well as the flat bread and hommus, they make a mean combination.

No meal is complete without dessert and Lebanese Flower Fruit Cocktail is a meal in itself. A thick smoothie of sorts, filled with fresh pieces of banana, melon and skinless almonds, strawberry and avocado puree, topped off with ice cream and chopped pistachios, a truly amazing experience!
