There are not many Lebanese restaurants around in Hong Kong.
Mama Malouf serves Middle Eastern food with playful modern twists.
After seeing pictures on social media, I knew the food was going to be good because it was similar to the Leb food in London and they also do hummus bowls while the pickles looked promising.
Started with the Mezze which are a must
MAMAS MEZZE - HUMUS, BABA, TARAMASALATA, PICKLES - 138
All my favourite dips with hot and soft flatbread.
The pickles were really refreshing and strong with a good salty and sour kick.
CHICKEN LIVERS WITH FETA MAYO & PICKLED CHILI - 78
This was chunky liver pieces on creamy feta mayo.
SMASHED EGGPLANT WITH LEBANESE SALSA & ZATAR MANOUSH - 98
I love anything with Zatar, the more the better and the flatbread was coated with a delicious layer that was aromatic.
The smashed eggplant accompanied it nicely.
SHISH TAWOUK WITH PEPPERS AND ONION, ALMOND RICE & TOUM - 178
This is another must order as the pieces of chicken were chunky and tender on a bed of fluffy rice.
Adding the dip to the rice and chicken makes it taste even better.
BAKED CARROTS WITH FETA MAYO & POMEGRANATE - 58
The carrots were too pretty to eat, almost as if they were freshly plucked from the soil. Each one was roasted perfectly with a soft centre topped with delicious creamy mayo and ruby pomegranate jewels.
Finished with the COFFEE & CARDAMOM ICE CREAM SANDWICH - 68.
Although it was coffee, It reminded me of Indian masala chai.
The icecream and filo pasty tasted really good together and the delicate filo layers hung the ice cream nicely.
For drinks, had the harissa which tasted like bloody mary.
For improvements, it would be good if you could choose the level of spiciness.
Overall, I loved everything so I will gladly come back if I am in the area.
