Al Diafah, Sri Petaling, July 2011

Dear Diary,

I’ve wanted to go to Al Diafah ever since I read fantastic reviews about this restaurant in Life, Dessert and What Matters and Sweet, Sour and Juicy. However, Hubby is not really keen on Middle Eastern cuisine. After much persuasion, he finally agreed to give this restaurant a try. Well, he didn’t have much choice after forgetting about my birthday. He TOTALLY forgot about it so no wish whatsoever from him. It was one bittersweet birthday. Well wishes started pouring in as early as the night before but the one wish that matters most never materialized. I kept on waiting until midnight and sure enough I was in bad mood the whole day. Finally, I got my present the day after and he treated all of us to a birthday dinner at Al Diafah. For me, it’s not the present or dinner but the thought that counts.

Souvenir shop

Al Diafah is a Middle Eastern restaurant located in Sri Petaling. Upon arrival, you’ll be greeted by a friendly usherer. Al Diafah’s souvenir plus kurma shop occupy the ground floor while its restaurant is on the first floor. It also has a few other shop lots for functions purposes.

As you enter the dining area, you’ll be transported to another world. With Arabian ambiance and lots of Arabic decorations, you’ll be in for an exotic dining.

Mendy Rice with Whole Barbecue Chicken

Sauce for the rice


Shish Tawouk

Spaghetti Tuna

Lentil Soup

Mixed Appetizer (Tahina Sauce, Hommus, Baba Ghanoush)

Al Diafah Salad

Rice Pudding

Banana, Carrot Pineapple, Orange, Arabic Tea, Al Diafah Juice

I love the hummus. Mendy rice is phenomenal. Even without any side dish or lauk, the rice already tastes scrumptious just by itself.

Ermayum - Unai first time makan hommus masa dok Cleveland. Ingat dak kedai bagel yg dekat convenience store (apa tah nama tak ingat dah) & opposite bank? Kat kedai bagel tu ada jual hommus utk disapu tengah-tengah bagel. Unai memang suka bebenor. Balik sini tak penah makan sampailah gi Al Diafah.
