One of the fondest things we do as a couple is to EAT!  Who doesn't love to EAT right?  We like trying out new places and we also come back often to the familiar.  That's why when I got an invitation from THE Spanky Enriquez to try the Arabian Delights at Corniche Restaurant of the Diamond Hotel, we of course said YES!  I love food that's spiced!  I love eating onions and tomatoes a lot, so this to me was definitely a treat.

The Corniche Restaurant offers themed dinner buffet nights at Diamond Hotel.  On Tuesday nights, they feature Arabian dishes true to the sumptuous and exotic taste of the Middle East.  If you have an adventurous appetite like me, then you ought to try this!

For starters, they have a selection of Colde Mezze and Salads.  Here are various Hummus to choose from: Babaganoush, Fatoush, Moussaka, Cucumber and Spiced Yoghurt Assortment, Tabouleh, Rice Bell Pepper Salad.  They have Pita and an assortment of other flat breads to go with the Hummus.  For soup, they have the Yellow Lentil Soup which has Crispy Bread Flakes, Creamy Homemade Yoghurt and Fresh Cilantro.

Since I was in high school (please don't ask me what year was that!), I've been eating Shawarma and I just love the combination of meat, veggies (especially the chopped onion and tomatoes) and the garlic sauce that blends perfectly with it.  My senses come alive whenever I think of  partaking it!  Now I am craving for it again, seriously!

When I came back for my second round of Shawarma, I was surprised to see this!  It was near non-existent already!  Best-Seller! :)
