The girls having yummy middle eastern food
28 July 2009
London, United Kingdom
Pasha Restaurant – South Kensington, Gloucester Road
It was M’s birthday and L living in London for more than a decade, suggested visiting this middle eastern restaurant, Pasha at South Kensington to celebrate.
The food was impressive and the deco was beautifully done, in between the meals, belly dancers appeared shaking to music.
We were not meat eaters but this Moroccan Middle Eastern food had great vegetarian dishes I have come to love like Baba ghanoush, which is made from Aubergines, Tahini (roasted sesame paste), garlic. Normally I hate this vegetable dip because most restaurant and cafes do it horribly, but Pasha does it by smoking the Aubergines, lightly smoky and roasting the garlic so that you can taste the caramelised sweetness. The result, a velvety creamy dip that up to now, I am still craving for.
We had tons of food, mostly the typica dishes likel Moussaka which is aubergines,tomato, chickpea, onions, Tabbouleh, Chicken Tagine and other dishes I had forgot to photograph because of my hungry eager to eat and enjoy instead of snapping. But did manage to remember taking a few quick snaps before the girls engulfed the dishes.
Creamy with smoky hints of Baba Ghanoush, Aubergine dip. Nicely done without the tasteless creamy version that most other places serve. This has made into one of my comfort food list!
Fattoush salad, Fresh bread platter and sumac spiced bread.
This is a miss, didn’t like it. Forgot what it was called.
Another miss, a middle eastern Samosa, Sambusak with feta cheese, the pastry wasn’t great with little bland fillings.
Grilled seafood with hint of spices, pretty well-done and tender, loved the prawns, sea bass and cod.
Stuffed almonds with juicy majdool dates and chocolate fondue. Am picky about middle eastern dates, and Majdool the king of dates simply pure creamy sugary goodness packed with tons of healthy minerals and vitamin B nutritional goodies. Ahhh..
Chocolate fondue that we all devoured quickly. Good food takes no prisoners!
M doing her belly dance, those belly dance courses did not go to waste.
