Let Chef Ali El Bourji from Dubai's Atlantis, The Palm, satiate your cravings for Lebanese flavours in a promo at Mosaic, Mandarin Oriental KL, from now till August 12.

Mixed grill, jewel-toned salads and aromatic sweets rein supreme, in a Lebanese food adventure happening at Mosaic, Mandarin Oriental Kuala Lumpur, from now through the weekend.

Guest Chef Ali El Bourji is set to stir the dining scene from August 8-12, 2018, with decadent and authentic classics in a buffet spread featuring Middle Eastern signatures, from fresh mezzeh to delicate confectioneries.

Fans of whole grains will dig the Ouzi rice of nut-and raisin-studded minced lamb, chicken and rice baked in a puff pastry – or the Pescatarian Fish Sayadieyh of prawns, fish, rice and spices, or even a vegetable-studded Maklouba bil Lahem; a glorious union of lamb, eggplant, carrot, tomato and Arabic spices.

 No Middle Eastern meal is complete with the sweets. Surrender to fine Lebanese delicacies, in particular the Ashtalia with dates and coconuts, or a creamy Mafroukeh swathed in crushed pistachio, rose and orange blossom water. Or perhaps, a naughty morsel of the Znoud Al Sit; deep-fried filo dough pastry with special cream and syrup drizzle.
