Hidayah had a little lamb

So much food, so little stomach space

I am stuffed. Seriously full to the maximum capacity. Since the 2 main people who don't eat lamb were absent today, we decided to go to the place where LAMB reigns supreme. Al-Rawsha.

The first time I went to Al-Rawsha afriend told me that it was very easy to find, just lookout for alot of Bangladeshis standing or squatting around (lepak'ing'). The Bangladesh High Commision is situated next door to this restaurant. Today, this adage held true because as we were parking our car, we had to be careful not to hit the numerous Bangaldesh nationals who seemingly had no concern for their life or limb.

Don't worry we shared those dishes between the 4 of us
By the time we had ordered I was famished. My hands were literally shaking due to hunger (okay, I exgerrate a little). Our menu for today:

  • Chicken Kabsa
  • Lamb Mandy
  • Lamb Kebab

Lamb kebab- I love this (served with 2 extra pieces of nan bread-not in picture)

I told you it was a lamb haven. As usual, when the food arrived it seemed an almost impposible task that 4 slight (hehe..well, none of us are VERY big) girls would be able to finish such a feast. But we must have bottomless pits for stomachs because in the end all that was left were empty plates. The Lamb Mandy and Lamb Kebab were exquisite. Served with a yogurt-like dip and some weak curry. I didn't care much for the Chicken Kabsa (we ordered it because Maz wasn't as crazy about lamb as the rest of us).

Zil and Sharlina ordered Strawberry and Apple Barbican. For the unitiated, this is a non-alcoholic malt beverage that is popularly consumed in the middle east. Best served chilled. Personally, I'm not a fan because for me, it is far too fizzy and mostly tastes like a bland Zapple with the other chosen flavours thrown in. There are quite a selection to choose from; apple, strawberry, pinapple, raspberry, lemon..I forgot the rest. I guess people who love fizzy drinks should try it.

Barbie doll? No.. Barbican doll..hehe

Restaurant name and location:

Al- Rawsha , Jalan Damai, Ampang

Best thing about the restaurant:


Worst thing about the restaurant:

The service is a bit slow. Roadside parking. Too many Bangladesh men sitting by the roadside outside (a bit intimidating).

Rating: All things Lamb related 4.5/5 Overall: 3.5/5

Raswha dah tak sedap macam dulu la. They serve smaller portions of rice and lamb. Went there 3 weeks ago.

For my lamb fix, I go to Saba' restaurant in Cyberjaya. Dont go to the Setiawangsa one, their Kabsah is very dry.

Hidayah Ismawi said...

Kimin: I dunno if I can finish a BIGGER portion.. probably not as amazing as it used to be.. but still quite good... cyberjaya is too far for us to have lunch
