Al Aseel (Greenacre) - Tender chicken breast skewers

Restaurant: Al Aseel Restaurant
Address: 4/173 Waterloo Road, Greenacre NSW 2190
Phone: (02) 9758 6744
Opening Hours: 11:00 am - 10:00 pm
Must Try: Mixed Plate

Al Aseel Mixed Plate $26
As we walked into Al Aseel, I noticed that nearly every table ordered a mixed plate so already gave myself a mental note to order it before I even sat down.

The mixed plate is skewer servings of marinated chicken breast, lamb & kafta served with tabouli, baba ganoush, hummus, garlic dip & falafel

I have 2nd thoughts when it comes to chicken breast, most of the time they turn out disappointingly dry. So Al Aseel's chicken breast was a pleasant surprise! They were sooooo tender and absolutely yummy. Loved the smokiness in the baba ganoush and the other dips were more-ish which all went well with the complementary lebanese bread.

Although this place located in Cammeray is known for their yakitori, it was their croquette that won me over and makes me want to come here again and again. Having said that, the quality of all the other food was top notch as well.

Opening Hours: Sun – Tues 11am – 9pm; Wed & Thurs 11am – 9.30pm; Fri & Sat 11am – 10pm.
Must Try: Soft Shell Crab Burger and Mac'n'cheese croquettes


Soft Shell Crab Burger, old bay coleslaw, ice-berg, sriracha & chips $17
Soft shell crab! I think the reason why I love them so much it's due to the fact that I love crabs and I can eat them without peeling (nope I ain't lazy) !

The Henson is very generous with their serving - this was packed with crab and the good ol' sriracha made it spicily addictive. Chips were not crunchy enough though :(

Smoked cauliflower Mac'n'cheese croquettes, truffled mayo $15

Other than the soft shell crab, these croquettes caught my eye in the menu! When it was served, all I could smell was the truffled mayo. These croquettes were beautiful, I mean, what can go wrong with mac'n'cheese!

Must Try: Pork Belly Baklava Gyro and Bifteki (if they're on Special Menu)


GYROS, they seem to be everywhere now! Like Gyradiko, Kefi is always packed everytime I drive past and it's been on my list to try for AGES. Kefi means joy in Greek and after all the deliciousness, I was jumping with Kefi :D

Bifteki $9.50

This was on their special's, it's ground beef and lamb with different spices and hint of chilli served in a gyro with spinach. The meat was juicy and the spices were flavoursome - it was AMAZING! This was the only spicy gyro of the night and the chilli hits the spot!
