Jacky and I rarely have Middle Eastern food but when we do, we go to the good ones. Nuba is one of the popular Middle Eastern stops that most Vancouverites talk about, so it was about time I went to go try it out. There were not a lot of seats at Nuba but it started getting full after 7pm. Jacky and I got there at 6pm so luckily it was still pretty quiet at the time.
From above, our orders looked quite colourful and healthy.
Lamf Kafka Plate
I chose to add roasted potatoes to mine and I found it a rather dry addition to the dish. I think brown rice would have been a better option to give the dish more texture and moist.
The lamb was very tender and juicy but I would have removed the white paste on top of the lamb that gave it a very sour taste.
The last time I’ve had hummus was in Hong Kong in 2013 and it wasn’t a good experience. This time, Nuba persuaded me that hummus is actually delicious. It was so creamy and rich in chickpea but definitely not too heavy.
Lamb Kibbeh (CAD9)
I honestly thought the only two differences between my order and Jacky’s order was the shape of our lamb and the choice of rice instead of potatoes. His lamb came in two giant meatballs and mine came in a sausage form.
