Ziggurat (Indian, African, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern Cuisine)

“The menu says they serve “cuisines of the lands where various Islamic Empires stretched around the early 12th to 14th centuries.” True enough, the menu boasts of Middle Eastern kebabs, Indian and Pakistan curries, plus Northern African and Ethiopian specialties.

The list is quite impressive, actually. For the kufteh (which literally means “pounded” in Persian and refers to any type of ground meat that has been formed into a meatball), Ziggurat not only has beef, lamb and chicken but also duck. For the tikka (cutlets or, according to the menu, “sliced pieces”), not only does the place serve chicken, beef and lamb, but they have tuna and shrimp tikka as well. Aside from your regular chicken or beef curry, there are fruit curries, the choices being coconut curry, which we are familiar with, as well as pineapple, banana, papaya and watermelon curry!

The ambience is very relaxed. You may opt to stay outdoors and hookah your way to the sunrise or stay indoors, which is open only until 1 a.m., and sit on any of the many pillows on the floor. For the road, you may have the TÆElla Ethiopian Honey Beer, which is a sweet albeit dark brew. Dont be fooled by this Cleopatra of a drink: its strength is masked by its sweetness.” – Inquirer

Ziggurat is not only offering us  their famous  Indian, African, Mediterranean, Middle Eastern cuisines but also an enjoyable adventure  to the tastes, sounds and sights of these places foreign to most of us.
