*Must Try* Mysterious & Historical Egyptian Cuisines @ Tut’s Egyptian Eatery
King Tut’s, short name for Tutankhamen, was a monarch who once ruled Egypt over 3000 years ago. To show that Egypt is more than just pyramids and deserts, the owners of Tut’s Egyptian Eatery has brought authentic Egyptian cuisine to Malaysia.
Their dishes are based on homemade recipes that have been passed down for generations, from street food to even royal palace cuisines.Want to know what is it all about in Egyptian Cuisines? Lets us now begin the food journey!
Kofta Meat Rounds
Our Tut’s Egyptian Eatery food journey starts with a solid starter platter, Egyptian Kofta Meat Rounds (Beef) serves with Bread Crisps RM19.30
Succulent meatball (8 pieces per set) are topped with traditional Egyptian herbs and scrumptious red sauces, have a very neat and flavoursome beef texture on each bite. Bread crisps are definitely the best side option to pick if you would love to scoop up the remaining sauce from the bowl (just like having a thick nacho’s with sauces).
For those who prefer other meat options for the kofta rounds, Tut’s also offers delectable chicken meat rounds which priced at RM16.30
Herbal Hot Plate Chicken With Baked Rice
The Herbal Hot Plate Chicken with Baked Rice RM25.90 is one of the main course in our Tut’s dining session. This land of Nile dish is served with Tut’s secret herbs and sauces, combining tenderly cooked chicken with exotic Egyptian flavour baked rice and vegetables.
Personally thinks that this hot plate chicken is a more successful variant compared to Nando’s chicken rice and vegetable set (despite having extra unique spice flavour and juicier texture on the overall dish), would recommend this dish with two thumbs up!
For those who dislike spicy flavour, you may opt for original flavour for this dish without any additional charges.
Koshari Mixed Grain Bowl
The Koshari Mixed Grain Bowl RM14.30 is considered as the huge black horse throughout the meal. You start to shacks your head by first seeing its appearance (full grains platter) while unconsciously thinking “what had I done to deserve this punishment in my meal”, but ended up giving us the most satisfying ending and a huge smile on our face.
This dish is actually made with a delightful blend of pasta, rice, lentils, onions and beans that brings their flavours into absolute delicious harmony greater than the sum of its part. While served with extra tomato sauce, Tut’s chilli sauce, chickpeas, lentils, and fried onions (we pretty much just mixed everything up and starts to dig in).
The taste was actually very toothsome with bits of everything followed by mild sweet and sour taste yet not as dry as we think it should be with the aid of tomato and chilli sauces. Who would have imagined rice and paste can actually be mixed and served together? All hail The Pharaoh Tut’s magnificent Intelligence! 😉
Molokhia Minced Leaf Stew
The Molokhia Minced Leaf Stew RM9.90 also known as the Nalta Jute consists of Minced Molokhia Leaves cooked to perfection in a stew and spiced with fine butter, garlic, coriander, cumin and black pepper.
This vegetable stew tastes sweet, earthy and well spiced, that some of us suggest it tastes exactly like having spinach stew. But personally thinks this stew is more towards “The Chinese Seaweed Soup”.
When it comes to vegetable stew, it doesn’t get more Egyptian than this. A lot of work goes into it as each leaf is hand-picked and carefully cooked to perfection with spices. Molokhia Minced Leaf is great for the heart and immune system too, so be sure to eat up those tasty greens.
Om Ali Bread Pudding
After all those delectable courses and now its time for dessert session!
The Om Ali Bread Pudding RM9.80 serves as the most popular classic Egyptian dessert and well known for its Royal Root!
When an Egyptian queen plotted against her rival, Om Ali, she celebrated by naming this dish after her and distributing it to all of Egypt, and it has been a traditional dish ever since then. This Egyptian pudding is soft, milky, and warm, while a scoop of ice cream on top balances it with a coolness that leaves you wanting more.
Overall you can taste sweet, nutty, chewy rice, icy cold ice cream and fragrant coconut milk in one spoonful of it. The sweetness level is on par with obesity, so it is wise to share this dessert with your beloved ones! 😉
The Tut’s Beverage
Tut’s Egyptian Eatery also offers a wide range of Egyptian Beverage for diners to explore and indulge.
Egyptian Lemon Mint RM8.00 – Chilling milk, sour lemon, and sharp, sweet mint come together in this refreshing drink, a great way to beat the heat in Egyptian way!
Tut’s Spiced Tea with Milk RM6.00 – The classic tea with milk is prepared with an exotic mix of eastern herbs and spices like cardamom and cinnamon, overall taste like the real spiced tea!
Be sure to choose one of their local drink and you won’t get disappointed with the outcome (including food of course!).
Tut’s Egyptian Eatery is definitely a great place to explore and discover fine Egyptian Cuisines with 100% great food, good flavour.
