I've been to Hossein a few times before (I think there are 3 outlets in Makati and Serendra), and each time I get hummus (garbanzos purée) as appetizer. This time, we switched to moutabal (mainly eggplant) served with hot pita bread. We loved it. Too bad, there was no roti chanai (light bread with slight sweet taste) available to pair it with.
For the main, we took Mix Kebab II (beef kebab, chicken kebab and shish kebab) and plain biryani (yellow long grain rice with spices and raisins). Serving size is too much for 2 people. Taste though is rich and satisfying especially when dipped in garlic sauce (be careful with the chili sauce which can be super hot). Try this meal with San Mig Light or a soda.
