Kabsa Rice

I got bored eating the same old, same old food everyday, and decided to try something that’s not exactly Western or Asian in nature. I went to try something of a mix between Mediterranean and Middle East in Wadi Al-Nile, Platinum Walk, Danau Kota, Kuala Lumpur while I was waiting for my boy to finish his class.

The restaurant in question was having a promo, so I tried their set promo of Kabsa Rice.

Kabsa rice is a well known Arabian dish of spiced rice served with spiced chicken. More of less, it looked like the Briyani dish that I’m familiar with, but the taste is much nicer than Briyani. The rice taste superb and the chicken was well done.

Unlike briyani dishes that’s usually served with hot, spicy curries, Kabsa rice is accompanied with a bowl of stew. Don’t let the picture fool you. This tomatoey potato stew is something to die for.

The dish comes with a glass of iced lemon tea. Nothing special there, I can make better iced lemon tea.

Total damage for this set is Rm 9.90. Kinda worth in my opinion cuz the portion is very big.

Wadi Al Nile Restaurant is currently having this promo:

Rm 9.90 for a choice of Kabsa rice or Mandy rice with chicken and stew as well as drink.

They also have buffet dinner if you’re interested in trying various kind of Middle East/Mediterranean food.

I’ll be going back to try more of their dishes. Couldn’t get enough of it.:D

Cleffairy: One can learn alot about one country’s culture through their food. Don’t you agree on that with me?

    Something different, hor? Looks like the rice are not cooked.. like sharp sharp? but looks good if they are not hard… taj mahal rice?

      Eh? Not cooked? No lah, Claire… no worries… the rice was cooked to perfection. The rice seems sharp cuz they used one kind of rice called ‘basmati’. It’s imported, long grained rice… not like our rice. This dish is very nice lerr… like nasi briyani…but I prefer this one to nasi briyani. Nicer… more ‘light’ and duzzin feel ‘muak’ after eat.
