Inside Harvey Nichols in Mall Of The Emirates you'll find Almaz by Momo. It's a warm, cozy Moroccan bubble inside the busy mall. I and C was here a few month ago and we found it very good so I thought I should try their Iftar.
A warm greeting and then I was shown to my table. I got a seat in the middle of the restaurant which is a bit elevated from the rest of the dining room. The nice, warm atmopshere really made me happy.
After the traditional start with dates it was time to grab some food. I got a big smile on my face when I saw the buffet. Everything looked so mouthwatering. I had three plates of various flavors.
zaalouk (aubergine and tomato salad)
fried marrow salad
foul mangoub (fava bean salad)
olives flavored with anise
green beans with chick peas and olive oil
sourki cheese salad
lamb tagine with pear and date
After the feast I had a sample of a few desserts. Arabic pastries has never been my favorite and I find them being a bit too sweet but everything thing was nicely presented.
Moroccan tea rounded of the meal before I went back out to the hectic mall.
I hope I'll be back soon so I can try the dishes I had to pass today.
