This December, diners are invited to indulge in an authentic fusion of Arabesque cuisine, featuring a beautiful balance of Turkish, Lebanese and Moroccan flavours. Discover a feast of delectable dishes, including luscious new ones revealed just in time for the holidays.
Let your culinary journey begin with Kayseri Manti, a scrumptious hot starter with ground meat encased in delicate pastry and served with a tomato concasse and a flavoursome garlic and yogurt sauce from Kayseri, Turkey. Follow this with a vibrant Prawn & Tomato Salad with plump pink prawns and juicy tomatoes, a dish from Bodrum, Turkey; and Duck kibbeh, a robust hot appetiser rustled up with duck confit from Lebanon.
Reach for an aromatic Tagine sea bream from Morocco next, simmered in a sun-ripened tomato concasse with onion, bell pepper, lemon confit and black olives; or a succulent Lobster thermidor, a French classic cooked to perfection with a twist from Asil’s brilliant Head Chef.
Meat enthusiasts can tuck into a juicy Turkish spiced Lamb kebab with a sour cherry sauce; tender Short ribs with couscous from Morocco; or Crispy filo kebab from Mardin, Turkey. Another must-try is the restaurant’s Crushed potatoes, which is a popular Lebanese side dish with Levantine spices and a dash of lemon juice.
Complement your meal with winning beverages made with a medley of the finest ingredients and delightfully presented with a unique flair, as you soak in melodious tunes from the charming Oriental band.
Every remarkable meal must end with a spectacular dessert; and this is just what Asil offers. Finish on a sweet note with a tempting Chocolate mille-feuille, boasting puff-pastry layered with rich chocolate; or a Saffron Milk Cake, the Middle East’s version of tres leches.
