Located in Prospect, Isaac's Kitchen serves Lebanese food at very reasonable prices. During our visit, we ordered the Chicken Skewers, Fattouish, Lamb Wrap, Falafel and Rice.

One of their main dishes is a range of skewers, which came with Lebanese Bread that can be eaten with the skewers like a wrap. The chicken skewers we ordered were cooked perfectly with a delectable char-grilled flavour. It was also accompanied by a selection of pickles. Other types of skewers available are lamb and kefta (spiced ground meat).

We were also served with three different dips – Garlic, Hommos and Baba Ghnouji. The Garlic Dip had a strong garlicky taste while their Hommos and Baba Ghnouji had more subtle flavours.

Hommos is produced from chick peas and has an earthy flavour.
Baba Ghnouji is prepared from grilled eggplants and has a delightful smoky taste. All three dips tasted delicious and we found it difficult to pick a favourite.

The Lebanese bread was not too chewy and is particularly good when eaten with the meats and dips, the plain flavour being the perfect partner to the stronger tastes of those dishes.

For a balanced meal, we ordered the Fattouish, a salad consisting of lettuce, tomato, cucumber, shallots, radish, parsley and Lebanese bread dressed with olive oil, grenadine and garlic. Taking its name from pomegranate, grenadine is syrup with a tart and sweet taste that is usually used in cocktails. The vegetables had a refreshing taste with their flavour heightened by the dressing and the pieces of Lebanese bread added crunch to the salad.

Isaac's Kitchen wraps are ordered with your choice of meat filling and dip. The Lamb Wrap that we ordered had lamb which was tender with the refreshing vegetables and pickles complementing it well. We chose the garlic dip as its strong flavour is a good partner to the lamb.

The Falafel that we had was fried to golden brown with the chewy texture being a good complement to the crisp coating.
Isaac's Kitchen's Rice (Photographed by Jonathan Phoon)
We saw a plate of rice being served to the next table and could not resist ordering the dish because it looked so interesting and delicious. Preparation of their rice dish is quite novel, with the rice getting fried in butter and a selection of spices, and then topped with sliced almonds. The rice had the right texture with a moreish flavour from the spices it was fried in. The almonds gave the dish a delectable crunchy element that enticed you to take another mouthful.
Ambience of the restaurant was very good with a good amount of seating space available. Off street parking is available in the carpark at the front of the restaurant.
