Arabesque   -   Kuala Lumpur, Wilayah Persekutuan

Vegan,  MeiMei,  FatJedi like this    

We happened to be around Petaling Street area for a meeting so decided to try out Arabesque. I had messaged them earlier in the morning to find out if their vegetarian selections were egg-free and dairy-free and they told me that "You will find once you are handed the menu that each dish has a full discription under its name telling you all you need to know about it."

Also, when we got there I explained that I was vegan and would need to avoid any dishes that have eggs or milk or cream. They assured me that the Lentil Soup only had lentils and that the Chickpeas in Olive Oil and the Falafel wouldn't have anything that I don't eat.

Here's the description of the food from the menu:
Lentil Soup - A hearty lentil soup served with roasted bread and lemon slice. (I loved the roasted bread!!) RM10

Chickpeas in Olive Oil - Boiled chickpeas mixed with chopped parsley and tomato with garlic, cumin and sumac topped with olive oil. Comes with Arabic Bread. RM13

Falafel Platter - Falafel rings served with a side of sliced tomatoes, fresh mint, diced lemon bits, tahini sauce and Arabic Bread. RM26
You might want to check with the kitchen whether the tahini sauce contains yoghurt. There were 2 other falafel dishes that mentioned yoghurt but this one didn't so I chose this. But then after that I just avoided eating the tahini sauce coz the falafel was great on it's own.

Service was great - they were very friendly and came to check on us to see if everything was alright.

All-in-all, the food tasted great, service was excellent but the music was a bit loud. And I think I was in a bit of a food coma after that, coz I later remembered that falafel is deep fried. Now that I think about it, you might want to double check that they don't use eggs as a binder. I don't think they did as my skin didn't act up after eating it 🙂
