Learn about the top 5 must try dishes at Zahira according to Head Chef Greg Malouf below.
1. Split Giant Gulf Prawns
The only crustaceans Chef Greg Malouf truly enjoys are giant prawns because of their sweetness.
2. Seven Vegetable Tagine
Chef Greg Malouf discovered this dish in Morocco and adapted it to his taste. The vegetables are cooked delicately and it is a more contemporary take on the classic tagine.
3. Salmon Kibbeh Nayyeh with its accompaniments
It's based on the traditional Kibbeh with lamb. It's a dish that Chef Malouf's family enjoys.
4. Egyptian Style Pigeon Twice Cooked in Aromatics
This dish is Inspired by a close friend of Chef Greg Malouf. It is a traditional dish but Zahira cooks the dish with a lot of aromatics (master stock) to give it extra flavour and color without overcooking the pigeon.
5. Buttermilk Rose Cream
This dessert is inspired by a member of Chef Greg Malouf's family who used to cook the traditional Panna Cotta. The buttermilk rose cream is cooked using buttermilk and rose water to give it a tart flavour.
