Mix Appetizer M.S (Malika Saba) (RM25/USD8) – A platter of various appetizers to start off with, in case you’re intimidated by the awkward names like I was. I could only identified hummus and tabbouleh from my limited vocab/experience with Middle East fares.
Now, Malika Saba arrived on the scene at the right time, I’d reckon. Just when the food & beverage scene has slowed down to a snail pace in Ipoh (new eateries concentrated in the NEW AEON IPoh Station 18, but being mere mimics of their counterparts in malls all over Klang Valley), with nary an outlet that excites the senses anymore, this Middle Eastern restaurant with an outlet in Wangsa Maju, KL took a gigantic leap of faith … and opened another in Greentown of Ipoh.
Mullawah – A humongous in size traditional Arabic bread that came crispy on the sides and yet retaining that distinct aroma from the charred bits (possibly from the torched peripherals of the clay oven), and went well with almost any dips or salads that you may want to have.
