Nefertiti is an authentic Mediterranean restaurant serving a the finest authentic Egyptian and International cuisine which is established in the charming district of Arab Street.
This restaurant is named after the Queen of Ancient Egypt and helmed by an Executive Chef, Amr Elgohary who's experience in culinary art for more than 10 years and has travelled the world to hone his skills.
Authentic Egyptian fare can be found here if you are feeling adventurous and want to try something other than the common fare found in Singapore.
The restaurant had 2 entrances. One was along Arab street and the other was along Haji Lane. Decorated with Egyptian paintings and rugs, I felt like I was magically teleported to an ancient Egyptian town once i stepped in.
We were presented Nefertiti Mixed Mezza Platter ($19.50). Beautifully presented on a long plate, this mixed platter is a perfect for us to sample some of the food here. Consisting of Vine leaves (stuffed with seasoned rice), Mirza Gasemi (eggplant with tomatoes, garlic and spices), Hummus (mashed chickpeas blended with tahini), Hummus Bngar (Hummus with beetroot), Falafel (deep fried chickpeas, onions, garlic), Fattoush (salad with garlic, fresh mint & lemon juice).
My personal favourite was the Hummus and Fattoush which I found very appetizing. All of the above went very well with the generous serving of Pita Bread that came with it.
Next came our main dish which was Mixed Grill Platter ($33). Consisting of lamb chops, Kofta lamb, Shish Taouk (chicken) and Shish Kebab (Beef),
The lamb chops were perfect and very well marinated! Rice that came along was very fragrant too. This whole platter is simply perfect for meat lovers!
Last but not least came our dessert Kunafa, Levantine cheese pastry soaked in sweet sugar based syrup. This was my first time trying it and it was LOVE AT FIRST BITE!! Topped with a dollop of whipped cream, it was somewhat crispy but sweet but not too overwhelming. It's definitely a MUST TRY if you have a sweet tooth.
Besides serving Egyptian food, they also have the standard Western food like pizzas and pastas on their extensive menu in case you wanna try out something else.
Thank you for hosting us with such great hospitality :)
