It has got to be one of the most deliciously cuisine bought to Malaysia!

No it's not any fine dining or Michelin Star restaurant but.. oh! it's food served definitely gives a foodgasm every visit like I'm on cloud nine! Maybe it's just me and my partner, but read on and see if you might find yourself in the same boat as us. :) 

Tarbush Express is like a branch out of Tarbush, the first and leading Middle Eastern Restaurant in Malaysia. Every plate served is said to be dedicated with only the freshest and finest ingredients to bring us the authentic Middle Eastern taste.

We ordered three dishes to share and they are all lambsssss! Yes, this post is also giving the limelight to lamb dishes! Those who oppose to the dish of lamb, you can kindly exit now because my post might not be interest to you. Those otherwise, hold you excitement as I introduce them to you!

Undoubtedly, kebab is the utmost favourite which came to my mind every time when deciding to order. It is also the most common Middle Eastern cuisine known to us all. I think I have yet to had any which was awful.

Shawarma Lebanese Lamb (RM8.50) - Shawarma is a Levantine meat preparation, where the meat is grilled on a vertical fire spit and usually left to grill in rotation and kept warm for the whole day. Small blocks of meat are shaved for serving. As for kebab, they are served in a wrap usually together with some vegetables, tomatoes but it varies accordingly.

The serving here is just the meat in the wrap and vegetables, hummus, pickles, tomatoes as side on the plate. I am not sure if they would wrap everything in there if it was for takeaway. It's good to ask to be sure.

The taste of this spice marinated meat is hard to explain but it has a full flavour of the grilled lamb, meat so tender, every bite was more and more addictive. The sides paired really well to give a different combination taste.

This thin wrap is a small portion, if you would like it as a main dish, you could order the larger portion which cost RM12.00.

Rice Platter Lamb (RM18.00) - consist of Arabic Biryani Rice with shaved meat. Mine was lamb, the other meat choice would be chicken. As usual, the sides would be sliced tomatoes and vegetables.

The rice portion would be huge if you are a small eater. It's best to share if you are ordering this. The long rice shape and texture of Basmati rice somehow gives a different mouth-feel compare to the local rice. The saffron and other spices combined gives an appetizing aroma too!

However, towards the end of the savouring, the shaved meat does feel a little dry.

I am not trying to say that everything is my favourite but I really like Biryani too. :)

Lamb Modalala Rice (RM15) - Certainly, I do know know the meaning of Modalala. I tried to google it but there was not related result. I did check with them and they told me that this is a specially curated dish found only at their Tarbush Express outlet.  

Instead of the sliced lamb meat from the fire spit, this is pan grilled minced meat. The mince meat were compacted into these mushroom shape like. The meat was much more juicier compare to the Shawarma Lebanese Lamb as it was not grilled continuously. The fragrant of lamb meat was definitely there.

Recommended only to those who really adore having lamb servings with it's gamey flavours! Afterall, what's the point of savouring a plate of lamb dish without enjoying it's characteristics!
