Attila Mongolian Grill-Miral Complex

1

Last week I was invited to taste the food of the newly opened restaurant in Miral Complex located after Hilton Resort Mangaf.

All the way from the USA, comes to you Attila Mongolian Grill. All about healthy food. They serve Mongolian and Japanese dishes. The concept behind this restaurant is to eat fast food but in a healthy way. Almost like subway sandwiches but this one has noodles and rice.

The Mongolian dishes are cooked in front of you. You pick your tray, then get a bowl of your choice from either beef, chicken, fish or shrimp. Then move on to the other station, get a bowl of fresh vegetables. A bowl of noodles or rice noodles or just rice (their noodles is approved by Dr. Abdulla Almutawa) healthy indeed. Then the last station is to get your cooking sauce, if you don’t know what to choose, there will be someone to help you, but actually everything is clear and easy to pick.

You take your tray to the chef who cooks everything in front of your own eyes. You can ask him to cook your food with either a little bit of oil or with water. When your dish is ready, you’ll hear the bell ringing behind the chef to tell you that your dish is ready. I really loved both our Mongolian dishes, so delicious and yummy especially the rice. The noodles was so light and yummy :)

Now let’s talk about the Japanese dishes. We loved the Edamame salad. It was really great, so delicious and crunchy. The shrimp tempura was okay, just like any tempura. The sushi was really yummy and crunchy. My favourite was Wahabi Maki *yum yum*

@VapianKuwait New Menu Tasting

1

Last week, I went to Vapiano (The Avenues Mall) to try their new menu. I have to say this; I love their food, how it’s cooked/made in front of you, the sauces/dressings they use are really good and not to mention the rosemary plant on your table to use on your dishes directly.

This new menu is all about GOAT cheese, and I’m a goat-cheese-lover. I really love it. Not every restaurant use the best quality. I remember visiting another restaurant and the goat cheese they used was really dull. But the one used in Vapiano is high quality for sure.

We arrived around 5:30 pm and I was starving. I didn’t eat anything all day.

Let’s check their new menu, shall we?

2

Inssalati Di Polpo

Verdict: DELICIOUS. LOVED IT. MY FAV. This salad has roasted polpo (mini octopus), tender potatoes, chives, pepper and capers served with lime dressing.

A closer look

4

Pasta Con cipolla Rossa with Linguine

Verdict: I was skeptical from this dish but I said, why not try it? It TURNED out to be really good. The chef tried to warn me saying this dish has dry sauce. I told him fine with me. I wanted to add chicken to it, but he said have alone without any additions and I followed his instructions. He was damn right. It was really good without any additions. The goat cheese made it extra yummy. The amount of goat cheese was a lot, and that what I liked about this dish. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. The dish contains red onion marmalade, refined with red grape juice and served with mild goat cheese.

5

Pasta Reef N Beef

Verdict: This dish was soooo heavy. The creamy sauce and everything in it screamed HEAVY but also DELICIOUS & YUMMY at the same time. Not suitable for those who are on a diet but if you are having a cheat day, then this is your dish. LOVED IT. Fresh linguine with tender beef fillet, scampi, crunchy carrots and zucchini in a fine lobster sauce.

6

Pizza Chèvre E Aglio

Verdict: MY FAVOURITE PIZZA. When you see it, you say “this looks dull”. But in fact it’s not. The taste that it has with its fine ingredients makes it extra specie. Cream of ricotta, caramelised garlic and mild goat cheese. Have you ever tried caramelised garlic before? I haven’t it and that was my first. I literally went to heaven. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

The Choco Gate Restaurant Experience

1

I received an invitation from the newly opened Cafe/Restaurant located in The Gate Mall. The invitation came for one person only, which was kinda weird because who would go and eat alone in a restaurant? It would look really weird but the good thing is that I went with PinkGirl ;) and it didn’t look weird for us.

We went their around 1pm and it was still empty. We greeted by the staff and chose our table. The place had so many kinds of seatings; sofas, chairs, bar etc. We got the red sofa which made the pictures look really good.

The food came really late, like after 35 minutes from our arrival and to be frank, this wasn’t expected from our side, because the vent was supposed to be from 1 tip 3pm, so i’d expect everything to be ready by 1:15pm.

Anyways, that was all forgotten when the delicious food started coming and yes, it was really good. I loved most of the dishes that were served except for one dish which was very spicy.

Now, let’s explore the menu;

10

All Sliders

Verdict: This dish has 3 kinds of sliders: fish, chicken and CAMEL. Yes, camel meat and it was the one I tried because I haven’t tried it before. And it was SO GOOD. I didn’t try the other dishes but the camel was worth it.

11

Steak Wrap

Verdict: This dish was really good but heavy because it had eggs inside it. And it gave it a really nice taste.

1001 Inventions Exhibition-Scientific Centre

1

I received an invitation to attend the opening of 1001 Inventions Exhibitions organised by The Scientific Centre but unfortunately, I couldn’t attend. I really wanted to go because it looked interesting.

I managed to go last Friday and drop the place a visit. It’s not that huge but still not that small. Decent. You start with a mini movie that gives you an introduction to what you’re going to explore. Many people think that the Romans and Greeks invented everything, and not everyone know that Muslims invented a lot of things back in the Dark Ages.

After the movie, the curtain is pulled up and you get to explore the whole place. Major inventions and how do they work. You see some people talking about each invention in Arabic language. The exhibition is good for children above 6 years old, as it’s kind of difficult to understand the Arabic language and how such inventions work.

As you get deeper inside the tent, you’ll find a place where you can dress yourself or your children like they used to dress in the past and take some photos. I really loved this corner. Dressed Juju with a very loose dress and took some photos for her, they pictures were really cute :D

There is a gift shop at the end of the exhibition where you can buy some books and other stud. Also there is a corner for kids’ activities; colouring, painting and other things.

Thank you Mr. Nawaf Al-Rudaini for the invitation :)

Kidsville Carnival-Wahran Park

1

I’m loving what’s going on in our country Kuwait in the past couple of years. Carnivals, parades, celebrations and so many things start from November tip April. So many activities and things to do or enjoy for kids. Every weekend, I have a place for Juju to take.

Last week, there was this beautiful carnival organised and arranged by @Kidsville_Kw (instagram). It was held in Wahran park in Shamiya. To me the place is kinda small, I prefer Discovery Mall garden which is more spacious and it has a huge parking. But this one is also okay.

We went there around 3pm and the place mashallah was full. Kids running every where, enjoying their time. Parents resting on chairs or floor pillows enjoying a cup of coffee. Other kids were eating from the delicious kiosks around the garden. And Juju’s pre-school was there which made Juju very happy seeing her picture on the TV :)

It was really fund, and what made it extra fun, the Zumba dancing with Rana Al-Omani. She is really amazing with kids. Juju kept dancing and clapping all the time. She made the children very happy.

We enjoyed our day to the max :D

Khaneen Restaurant Experience

1

I’ve heard a lot about Khaneen restaurant located in Almubarakiya, used to be called “Tikka o Loomi”. Never tried it before but the pictures of the new restaurant, decoration, and food attracted me.

On a lazy Friday, I asked my father to join me to lunch with Juju and my brother joined us too. It was a very lovely day spent with family. The weather was amazing. And the seating area was beyond than beautiful. Full of flowers, greens and an open space under the sun (not direct).

When we got there, it was around 1pm. It wasn’t crowded at all. So we picked the biggest table, because we wanted to be comfortable eating our food. Juju loved playing around the table. Going up and down the stairs.

The menu came with a very good variety of food. The prices were kind of reasonable and the food looked fabulous.

We ordered some traditional dishes and all tasted really good. Loved them all. It won’t be our last visit, we’re definitely going there again.

Now, let’s check what we’ve ordered.

Haleeb O Hail Gers Egaily

1

I received the best gets gaily cake ever from Haleeb O Hail. The box was beautifully wrapped with a red flower and the smell was coming out of that box, I couldn’t help myself but stick my nose on the box :P

As I opened it, the smell went out and it was really strong. The smell of cardamom. It makes everything taste delicious.

The cake itself was really moiety and tasty. It melts in your mouth and it stayed as it is for more than a week. All in our tummies.

Yum Yum

Tasty Shawerma from Mearmisha

1

A couple of weeks ago, we received the Dewaniya package from Mearmisha that had a great quantity of Beef and Chicken Shawerma along with dips, fries and pickles.

I don’t like receiving a plain platter. I like it when it comes with dips and other things that complete the whole meal. The variety and quantity of pickles was really good or maybe more than good. The dips were really amazing, especially the green one which was the winner. The whole family loved it.

Now, which one we liked more, beef or chicken. Well, the beef one was the best. We ate them all, and fought on who will get the last piece :P My sister won ;)

Get the Diwaniya package from them if you’re planning a cozy gathering with your friends or family members.

Make Meaning-360 Mall

1

Where to take your kids on the weekend?

Sometimes parents run out of ideas or places where they can take their children to enjoy their time and do somethings useful.

Well, there is a new place which has lots of activities and things to do. It’s so much fun to go there and enjoy your time with your little ones.

Make Meaning has recently opened in 360 Mall near FunCity in the 3rd floor. Mashallah the place was really crowded when I took Baby Jana on a Saturday but that wasn’t a problem at all. The staff were very efficient and attended to us immediately. They showed us our table then explained everything to us. They told me what’s suitable for Juju’s age and we chose the model to colour. They also provide you with the colours, glitters and everything.

You can colour so many models: candles, cups, and you can also make soaps, and candles. The prices are a little bit high but well, it won’t be a problem if you take your kid their once a month.

Healthy Shopping from Dean & Deluca

1

A couple of weeks ago I received a lovely box from Dean and Deluca with gift card to enjoy at the cafe or in the supermarket. Of course, I chose the supermarket because it brings me joy and happiness. Going through all the products, reading their ingredients and nutrition data. t’s more fun.

All the new healthy products you’ll see them at the front shelves just when you enter. The variety is amazing. I had lots of fun shopping there. Some products are really healthy and some are not THAT healthy. Some of the products’ prices are very reasonable and some are kind of expensive but I guess it depends on their origin and ingredients.

My favourite product is the healthy organic coffee, so light on the stomach.

I bet you’ll find something that suits your life style if you’re into healthy products.

Here are some of the products available at Dean and Deluca.

@DallahKuwait New Lemon Almond Cake

1

I just love every product Dallah invents or creates. They’re just perfect in everything whether its traditional or modern desserts. They always have a new winner. They make us go back in time with their improved versions of traditional desserts like Beith Alqe6a, Ghuraiba, Damlooj and so on. Not to forget their modern desserts like Crown Jewels (My fav), Pumpkin Cake, Smoked Pecan Cake etc. You can never go wrong with their wide selection of desserts. If you have a gathering then Dallah is your perfect choice.

Their newest creation is The Lemon Almond Cake. Moist, spongy, delicious and not so citrus. The lemon taste is there but not actually there if you get what I’m saying. And I have to tell you that it stayed fresh in the fridge for more than 2 weeks. Baby Jana went nuts over it. When she wakes up in the morning she’d ask for it immediately. It’s very light. You’ll never feel full or stuffed even if you had a huge slice.

It’s definitely a winner.

Thank you Dallah and wish you all the best.

One Week Left from The Academic Winter Break

1

They call it spring break but in my dictionary it’s winter break because it’s freaking damn cold.

So only one week left from our academic break and it passed by so fast, as if yesterday was the last day of school. It’s not that I’m upset because we’re all going back to work, in fact I love my job and what comes with it. I have so many advantages which I won’t talk about them but the administration in our school are really good. But the fact that we spend a lot of energy in our job makes us exhausted when we get back home and not in the mood for our children or family.

Well, let’s enjoy the few days left and have breakfast outdoors to enjoy the  beautiful mornings. Last week or the week before (can’t remember) I went to Veranda to enjoy a quick meal with my friend. We ordered the apple pie and cree brûlée. The creme brûlée came in 3 flavours and all were really good, I loved it, not to mention the presentation. It was really nice. Try it if you haven’t tried it yet.
