I feel bad that I wasn’t able to update the blog lately. It’s just been so hectic in the office that by the time I reach home, I really couldn’t find the energy to sit in front of my computer anymore. Hay.
One of the things I’ve been meaning to talk about was an event I attended last month. I was invited, alongside some members of the press and other bloggers, to the relaunch of Shayan Restaurant in Al Ghurair Rayhaan. I felt kilig and was also excited because I really enjoyed their previous event back in Feb.
Since it was my first time at Shayan, I asked Ferry, their E-commerce Manager to brief me regarding their new and improved menu. I learned that Shayan‘s previous menu was a fusion of ancient Persian and contemporary cooking techniques. This time around, in order to cater to a wider market, they are introducing Lebanese cuisine on top of their already famous & signature dishes.
During the event, we gladly tried several Middle Eastern dishes such as Lebanese mezze, mouth-watering Grilled kebabs and much more. Their chefs also served other authentic Lebanese dishes which my husband and I both loved.
Hot & Cold Appetizers
I am not a food blogger at all so I won’t be able to properly describe how each of these dishes taste. However, trust me when I say that I loved Shayan’s food specially the appetizers & mains. Their Lebanese set menu is definitely worth a try. 🙂
Here are more photos captured during the event…
All in all, it was an evening of good food, great service, and new friends!
Treasured times indeed.
