I got a surprise invite to an iftar last week to @ The Media Lounge at @ by @.communications ! Took a friend along and we genuinely liked the cozy and open feel to this place.

Things I enjoyed :
A delicious and unique Ouzi with tasty mince flecked rice and tender pulled lamb. The Fish Sayadiyah was tasty, lightly spiced and likely had fresh, not frozen fish. The salads were fresh, the soup was spiced and comforting. Gorgeous kibbeh, I could have eaten a trayful of them.
Things I hope to see them work on :
Potatoes needed some seasoning and the grilled veggies were more like steamed. The white rice on offer, although a safe option, didn't go with anything. The date pudding (dessert) which I was so excited about, had too much baking powder/soda and as a result, tasted bitter and metallic. I'd love to see some adjustments made, which would make this buffet a hidden gem!
