Breaking News - Eat at Coriander Leaf and Help Pakistan's Flood Relief Effort!

Simply Fab loves life, and lives it fully. So when we saw this bit of news just in, we just had to write about it to spread the word as best we can in our own little way.

Coriander Leaf and The Screening Room, two restaurants owned by Samia Ahad, are doing their bit to raise funds for the flood relief effort in Pakistan. The restaurants are offering two special menus – one at $60++ and one at $120 ++ – where 20% of the proceeds will go to aiding the disaster relief effort. So whether you’re entertaining clients, or just nipping out for a lunch treat, it’s not a lot to head over there and enjoy your day, knowing that part of your money is going to a good cause.

The $60 menu is a three-course meal with choices like Cold Sesame Noodles with sesame dressing, Salt and Pepper Tempura Calamari with arugula; a main course of Tandoori Chicken, cucumber-yoghurt relish, and butter naan, or Baked White Miso Gratinated Cod, and a dessert of mini Valrhona chocolate cake, plus a glass of wine.

The more expensive menu is good for sharing, comprising four of Samia’s delicious signature sharing platters – Asian, South Asian, Mezze and Dessert platters, perfect for sharing. Served in four courses, they are paired with four wines including prosecco, which makes this a great deal for a good deed! You’ll be sipping wine and enjoying foods like Crab Cakes with homemade tomato chutney, Smoked Duck, Mango and Pomelo Salad, a particularly luscious roasted red pepper and walnut dip, Lamb Kebabs, Manjari Chocolate Fudge Cake and lots more. We’ve had them before and can tell you, it makes very enjoyable sharing-with-friends food.

Of the two restaurants, I like Coriander Leaf in particular, with its laid back, resort feel…plus its high ceiling, spacious setting and windows overlooking the river at Clarke Quay. Ironically, Samia’s offering customers an easy and enjoyable way to help those struck by unimaginable hardship. Further down the road, she's planning art exhibitions and auctions and other activities to help rasie funds. 

When you think that one-fifth of Pakistan’s population has been displaced by what has been known as Pakistan’s worst flooding in 80 years, with perhaps 1600 dead and 20 million people desperately needing help, having a meal and some wine to help is not asking for much. So head over with friends, drink some wine, eat some great food, have a good time and know you’re doing something to help.
