You may have chanced upon a video of delighted diners looking on as a huge serving of lamb shoulder and rice is unveiled at their table.

The massive portion is a feast for both the stomach and the eyes.

It is served at Abu Mubarak Mandi Rice, a Middle Eastern restaurant in Tampines that specialises in Arabian Mandi, a traditional meal consisting of meat and rice.

Lamb shoulder platter

In the video, a server lifts a metallic lid to reveal a large lamb shoulder sitting on a bed of rice with three bowls of different condiments on the side.

The cut of meat is so generous that one end of the bone is sticking out beyond the circumference of the extra-large plate.

According to the restaurant's reply to a comment on the video, the platter costs S$150 and can feed eight to 10 people.

Or, as a cheeky caption on the restaurant's Instagram page suggests, you can (try to) have it for yourself.

Other menu items

If your group — or, your appetite — isn't large enough for the Lamb Shoulder Platter, the restaurant also offers other platters in more manageable sizes.

The Combo Mandi Chicken and Mutton Platter (Dulang)(S$50) appears to be a popular choice, and is recommended for four diners.

They also serve Chicken Mandi (S$8.90) and Mutton Mandi (S$9.90) in individual portions.

The Shakshouka (S$6.90) — a dish involving poached eggs in tomato gravy — is good ol' Middle Eastern comfort food.

Those with a sweet tooth may wish to try the Cheese Kunafa (S$9.90), a dessert made with a thin, noodle-like pastry, layered with cheese and pistachios.
