This fasting season, Bistro Baron is serving all Middle-Eastern delicacies to satisfy your cravings after hours of abstaining from food and drink.
If you’re fasting during Ramadan, then you already know that one of the things to look forward to the most is iftar. Lucky for us, the Big Durian is laden with all types of restaurants offering special menus for the season. Case in point: Bistro Baron, one of our go-to French bistros who invited us to hop into their restaurant to take us on a trip around the Middle East while sampling their special buka puasa menu.
The special edition Middle Eastern menu is a three-course semi-buffet dining deal that runs throughout Ramadan until 24 June, available to order from 5.30 PM to 8PM. Appetizers are taken from the buffet, where you have your choice of spinach and cheese fatayer or Fattoush Salad, while mains and desserts are cooked fresh to order and served tableside. The a la carte style main course available to choose include Lebanese Style Baked King Prawn, Beef Kofta with Salad or Fries, Baked & Wrapped Moroccan Lamb Shark and Chicken Shawarma Sandwich with Cucumber Raita. Yum… all set and off we went!
We kicked off the journey with fattoush, a Middle Eastern salad served with fried pita bread and made perfect with creamy hummus. It was our first time trying out this particular dish, and we loved every single bite.
Continuing the trip, we hit the grounds of Lebanon with oh-so-juicy marinated baked king prawns served with gluten-free pillaf rice. For our mains, we ordered a plate of slow baked Moroccan lamb shank, every single delicious slice is aromatic and tender.
For dessert, we tried Om Ali, a creamy Egyptian bread pudding. Wrapping up the culinary journey, we landed back in France to nibble on the Bistro’s assortment of French pastries.
Overall, Bistro Baron is serving an amazing Ramadan feast available throughout the holy season, perfect for your next buka puasa bersama with your loved ones. In the meantime, bon jeûne!
