OpenRice Tasty Union @ Kazbar

Food, in a cosmopolitan melting hotpot of modern Singapore, with multi-cultures and religions, is like a passion, a pilgrimage and an universal bonding that unites not just Singaporeans, our lovely visitors and friends from all around the world.

On 18th August 2010, I was very honoured and happy to be selected by OpenRice Singapore, for their OpenRice Tasty Union (ORTU) at Kazbar. I would also like to express my heartfelt thanks to Kazbar for the invitation, the very delicious food, introduction and sharing their expertise on Middle East cuisine and their warmest hospitality.

Kazbar at Church Street, has a great ambience, lovely crowds, cool place to chill out and awesome Middle East cuisine, well suited for your dinner date or even your corporate functions or alumni functions ! During the ORTU, I had a great time chatting with fellow OpenRicers and Michelle, a great host, with her warm hospitality and sharing.

The ORTU food tasting list was really really very delicious, along with Michelle’s patiently showing and explaining which dish was which, it made it very interesting and intriguing. A great eye opener for me was learning more about Middle Eastern cuisine, considering that I had traveled a fair bit and tasted different foods from different cultures and countries, during ORTU @ Kazbar, I learned a lot more about Middle Eastern cuisine !

What did we tasted at Kazbar during ORTU ? Here it goes …

Mixed Mezze Platter ~ combination of hummus, moutabel, babaghanoush, cheese borek and falafel

Mixed Grill Platter ~ lamb chops, shish taouk, shish kebab, and lamb kebab

Other wonderful dishes tasted : Tabbouleh, Prawn Kebab, Mousaka, Um Ali

Each dish that I tasted, simply delicious, especially the charcoal grilled mixed platter ! Oh yes, I must specially mention that we  tasted a year 2002 vintage red wine from Lebanon vineyards ! As much as my knowledge and understanding of wine, it was my very 1st experience with wine from Lebanon,something that I never heard before and I am glad to learn something new that night! My recommendation is to try it !!
