We, Malaysians are very fortunate to have exposure to the many different cuisines in the world in our very own country. Taste aside, it is not necessary for us to travel all the way to Vietnam to have Vietnamese food, Thailand to have Thai food or to South Korea for Korean barbecue. There are many Middle Eastern restaurants that has been around for the past few years and Laziz is one of them. Located at Mont Kiara, Laziz is a Halal Middle Eastern Restaurant which serves culinary delights from Middle East. The word ‘laziz’ when translated to English means delicious.
Since we were using MyDeal’s voucher, our choices are limited. We started off with our appetizer, Fetush @ RM11.00. Fetush is a type of salad which contains romaine lettuce, tomatoes, white raddish, succhini tossed with a light healthy homemade dressing with crunchy Lebanese bread.
Then came our Moroccan Chicken Cous-Cous. Laziz’s Moroccan Chicken Cous-Cous is a whole grilled chicken marinated with traditional Moroccan wheat and vegetables broth with fries and pita bread as sides.
The chicken was very tender and juicy. Even though it look burned in this picture, it wasn’t. Honestly, I think the best part of the chicken was the slightly charred part.
We also ordered Lazzi’s Baba Ghanoosh @ RM12.00. Baba Ghanoosh is grilled and mashed egg-plant with olive oil. Honestly, it tasted really weird on its own as it was very sourish. But if I were to spread it on a piece of bread, it tasted much better.
