Wide variety of good Middle Eastern cuisine, including vegetarian items

Al Hamra's one of our old favorites, having enjoyed many good meals there over the years. This time we had a vegetarian guest, and Al Hamra was an obvious choice for its  good choice of vegetarian dishes complementing its many non vegetarian options.

Their Hummus is always excellent -- this time we also tried the Labneh  and Moutabbal to go with Zatar bread. Delish!

Two memorable vegetarian items were Fool Medames and Cheese Reqaq, in addition to their Tabbouleh

Their grilled meats are usually rather yummy -- this time we tried Ryash Ghanam and Shikaf Kebab. The former was overdone, while the kebabs were just right.

Both the Saint Clair Marlborough Pinot Noir and the Antinori Santa Cristina Pinot Grigorio happily complemented our choices well, resutling in a highly enjoyable overall experience!

Delicious lamb dishes

We took up the groupon promotion with 50% discount on the food. We ordered 2 mains to share, the Halabi Kebab $25 and Dawood Badsha $26. One is lamb kebab with pita bread and roasted eggplant. The other is the minced lamb meatballs in stew which comes with rice. Both tasted absolutely delicious, meat is so succulent and flavourrful ! The quality of food is great, portions are ok and the service is good. The place is quite nice. Will come back again with the promotion for the lamb dishes.

great middle-eastern/lebanese food in holland village

hotos and more: http://andmorefood.wordpress.com/2013/05/06/al-hamra-holland-village/   great – and almost definitely one of the best places locally – middle-eastern/lebanese food in the expatriate haven of holland village. the food is great, and while expensive, it’s more than good enough for me to return.   the dishes were well-done, and portions generous: the za’atar flatbread warm and fluffy; hummus on the tangy-sour side but very appetising ; and our grilled half chicken came surprisingly in a wrap of naan-type bread, moist and well-seasoned. our fattoush was refreshing with the heavier flavours.   I really liked this meal – we were lucky to have one of those deal vouchers which brought the meal from expensive to reasonable. we couldn’t finish our za’atar bread at the end – we kept trying because it was so good, but it was just too much. decently attentive service, and an open design letting in lots of sunlight, this looks set to be a regular weekend hangout.
