What I Had in Cafe Arabia Seasons Mall Pune

Deconstructed Falafel Salad

Crisp bite sized falafels, lettuce, beet, parsley, olives, mixed peppers topped with sesame seeds and a lemon tahini dressing, a dressing made from ground sesame seeds. Falafel is a crispy fried chickpeas patty. This was one of the best falafel I have had.

Hummus Topped with Seared Mushrooms served with grilled Zaatar Bread

Now, this literally tastes like Middle Eastern Pizza. It is a must try. The bread has a good dash of the Middle Eastern Zaatar spice blend and the mushroom is cooked to perfection.

Spiced Beetroot Kebabs

Gently spiced minced vegetables and beetroot stuffed shallow fried kebabs. This was on the tasting menu and was on the spicy side and was not really balanced.

Baklava

A rich sweet pastry made of layer of filo topped with glazed chopped nuts and sweetened with syrup. This was a bit extra sweet for my liking.

Basbusa

Traditional Middle Eastern sweet cake made from cooked semolina and coconut soaked in honey. For me, the Basbusa was better than the Baklava here.

Overall a good place to have Middle Eastern food. Surprisingly I liked the vegetarian menu more here. Would return to have most of the things here again as the place is VFM.
