A great place for a pit stop
What we say:
Just across the road from Tarbush is Al-Amar Express, which if you can ignore its fish bowl like qualities, is a great place for a pit stop.
The large range of hot and cold meze, and excellent Lebanese bread sandwiches, mostly priced in the 10-15 ringgit mark, all make for high quality, decent value snacks. The same could not be said of its alcohol prices though, which are cheeky to say the least.
Al-Amar's big brother, in Pavilion, is a much more formal, and thus pricier affair, turning out what many people believe to be the best Lebanese food in KL. The meze are good, especially the hummus, but it is the meats where Al-Amar really distinguishes itself. The shawarma (shaved grilled meat), and chicken shish (grilled meat cooked on a skewer), are among the stand-out choices. For more adventurous diners, Al-Amar has a couple of traditional raw lamb dishes.
Both the Express and Pavilion branches are a five minute walk from Bukit Bintang monorail station.
