Here, Chef Moath presents his top picks...

Start off right: Golden Halloumi Skewers

"Experience the perfect blend of tradition and innovation with our Golden Halloumi Skewers. Made from local goat milk cheese, this dish features halloumi cheese deep-fried in a light, crispy tempura batter for a delightful crunch. Served warm and accompanied by our signature dynamite sauce – a blend of Japanese mayo with a hint of aromatic local thyme and spicy flakes – each bite bursts with a harmonious fusion of tastes that will leave you wanting more."

The main attraction: Beef Sajieh Wrap

"Our Sajieh Beef Wrap offers a contemporary take on a beloved local dish: Beef Sajieh. Wrapped in brown wheat bread prepared on a traditional saj, this indulgent dish showcases tender beef cooked to perfection in our signature lamb confit fat. Infused with aromatic cardamom seasoning, along with a touch of salt and pepper, each bite is satisfying. Perfect for enjoying in our modern lounge setting, this reinvented classic will delight your taste buds with every savoury bite."

The big finish: Pistachio Baklava Surprise

"Elevate your dessert experience with our Pistachio Baklava – a refreshing twist on the traditional baklava. Delicately layered with finely chopped pistachios, each bite unveils a delightful surprise with a creamy centre of frozen ice cream made from mastic frappe and pistachio. Topped with a whimsical flourish of halawa sesame-based cotton candy, this dessert is a true delight for the senses. Perfect for summer indulgence, it offers a tantalising blend of textures and flavours that will refresh your nights at The Deck Lounge."
