Minami Restaurant launches new food items

ALL the tables at the Minami Restaurant at the Palms Resort Saipan were filled as locals and tourists trooped to sample the new food items on the restaurant’s menu for brunch on Sunday. Palms Resort Saipan Executive Sous Chef Habib Akbar told the Variety they are very happy to see that the additional menu made an instant hit with the diners who made short work of the new food items from the curry station, the dessert section and Saipan’s only genuine Shawarma.

Shawarma is available in beef, chicken or lamb.

Shawarma is best eaten with hot, freshly-baked Nan bread and topped with various curry dishes.

“Our shawarma and Nan bread comes with a genuinely unique taste from the Middle East,” Akbar said.
