Ramadan feast at Straits Kitchen

2 months ago I posted a review of the Straits Kitchen at the Grand Hyatt, Singapore. Well, I was back again for its Ramadan breakfast feast.

The menu, for the Ramadan month only, now includes quite a few Eygptian fare because of a guest Eygptian chef. I really enjoyed myself this time.

It had, what I consider to be an important part of Middle Eastern cuisine, a lamb on a spit. Crisp on the outside, tender on the inside, not dry at all, even for slices without the fat. With a selection of mint and yoghurt sauce or just plain yoghurt. Very very good!

A must-try is the Faroug; roast chicken stuffed with rice and pine nuts. Fragrant, meaty and juicy.

The dessert was good. Lots of dates to keep your energy up. And a strange bread pudding made with yoghurt, dates and nuts. A little too sweet for me as it spoiled the taste of the delicately flavoured yoghurt cakes for me.

Another must-try is their teh tarik. This is thick (I counted 4 spoonfuls of tea dust) and rich tea that left a dry tingling feeling in the mouth. I had two. Very soothing way to end the meal.
