Best Middle Eastern Restaurants in Penang

Written by Updated ago

Malaysia’s burgeoning food scene has been witnessing plenty of international gastronomies lengthening our food bucket list. Among the frontrunners is Middle Eastern cuisine which is commonly a carnivore’s dream come true as a luscious range of meats and distinctively delectable dishes set our taste buds tingling. Moreover, portions are designed for sharing and generous union of spices and fragrant herbs are other endearing elements that affirm you that it’s simply irresistible. Dipping in warm pitas into creamy hummus to sinking teeth in char-grilled marinated meats with fluffy rice, simple ambience to ones that take atmosphere as a strong point, the Pearl of Orient is blessed with numerous joints delivering meals that just amplify your craze of Middle Eastern delicacies.

    Conveniently located juxtaposed USM at Plaza Ivory, this humble restaurant is where students and lecturers share the same viewpoint to tantalise their taste buds with authentic and affordable Middle Eastern dishes. Lamb mendi, nasi arab, chicken maklouba and pita bread are among the must-tries. The meats are absolutely fork-tender and the subtle aftertastes are known to linger in your mouth for some time. Wash it all down with their signature Arab tea.
