MIGF 2011 - Al- Amar Lebanese cuisine Menu

Don't you just love October??? It's a great month not just because of Oktoberfest, Deepavali, and Halloween celebrations BUT the Malaysian International Gourmet Festival(MIGF) 2011 is ongoing for the whole month as well.

What does that mean? It measn food prepared to the MIGF specifications and theme, a specially prepared menu which you can try at many of the fine-dining restaurants!!! I was lucky enough this year to be invited by Al- Amar Cuisine to be one of the first people to try out their MIGF menu which follows the four seasons.

Invited Leona Chin to join me on this Lebanese cuisine adventure at their Central Kitchen

To tempt us before the real menu was served, we were delighted with some sweet and savoury canapes

You can order these truly pretty and delicious canapes via their catering menu

Leona was clearly enjoying hers *winkz*

Before we got to taste the four seasons menu, we were shown a tour of their extremely CLEAN central kitchen. This is where all the food and creative juices flow with our Lebanese masterchefs.

All of us were asked to donned showercaps, that was how strict they were to keep the kitchen clean *I like*

The kitchen was divided into sections as well, there was a fish, meat, pasta, and even vegetables section, which you can clearly see in the picture above that it was the "greens" section

Told you they abide by international cleanliness standards... Many unscrupulous restaurants have no qualms about giving you expired food.... YUCK! That's where food poisoning comes from..

Group picture before we left the kitchen, although I wish I could be there to learn a tip or two.... I need it because I set the fire alarm off at my dorms in Hawaii before... *eeps*  (Sorry Hale Kahawai residence, it was me)

And................. Now........... For the menu we have been waiting for.............. our 6 course meal arrives...the anticipation was building up like crazy....fasionably late even for food;)

1. Taste Summer with an authentic Labneh Trio

We honestly stared at it for a few minutes until we were taught how to eat it....

Break the biscuit into pieces and dip it into the three dips based on your preference..easier than you think ok?

2. If you are a fan of beetroot, you will love this dish which truly taste of summer flavours in your mouth... has beetroot +  mango leather + rocket coulis

3. Moving on to autumn/fall with spinach bonbon, soujouk mille feuille and herb crust hommus and grass fed baby lamb fillet, one of the best appetizers ever!!!!

4. For the main course , you can choose between a fish or a lamb....

The fish dish was a "crowd favourite" because the fish had just the right tinge of saltiness to it, and if you eat it with the sticky rice, it blends perfectly in your mouth. Don't overpour the sauce on your rice and fish though..

Ashley loved the lamb dish because it was really tender. I really disliked the taste of lamb, but one bite of this lamb actually got me convinced that not all "lambs" taste bad

6. To clear your mouth with any salty, sour, or bitter tastes, we had "sunshine after rain" as our dessert which was a brilliantly concocted nougat glace laid on a bed of vanilla pineapple confit served with pineapple sauce and spiced chocolate shell....ZOMG, Heavennnnnnnnn!!!!!

I am pretty sure that you are clamouring to taste the above menu already and have your own review of it, you can try the Al-Amar MGIF 2011 menu at
