How many Doner places do we have in Kuwait now? Yes, they’re spreading very fast and I’m very happy to know that we’re having new Doner restaurants opening in the country because Boy you can’t get enough of this Turkish German Style Doner.
I’ve received 4 meals for 2 persons (which is a lot) to try with my husband. Beef & chicken diner sandwiches both in san and pita bread. Now, I loved the the beef diner in pita bread and it was really good and delicious. The sauce was rich and creamy not to mention the other ingredients completed the whole deliciousness.
As for my husband, he loved the chicken diner in san bread and thought it was lighter than the beef and pita bread. So both were really good and won our satisfaction. I loved how their fries were cut. They were chubby and cute, sprinkled with paprika I guess.
On the same day, my husband recommended the place for his colleagues at work and they ordered from them. The whole staff loved the doner and said it was delicious.
Order from them and try their doner sandwiches.
From the things I’ve received last week were a delicious Chocolate Pecan Tart and Blueberry Pound Cake from @The_Dessert_Table (intagram). The package came huge and I didn’t expect to find such deliciousness. Once I opened the huge box, the smell just hit me and I couldn’t resist but to cut me a slice and have a bite even before taking any photo which doesn’t happen on regular basis.
The Chocolate Pecan Tart was really really good and it was full of pecan pieces inside it covered with great chocolate and you can know that from the taste. I even took the whole tart to school the very next day and all my teachers-colleagues loved it and enjoyed. They ate it all :D
As for the Blueberry Pound Cake. It was fluffy and moist. Rich in blueberries, which I love a lot. It was light and each bite melts in your mouth without you even noticing it. I enjoyed it with a cup of tea the next morning and even in the afternoon. My husband loved the taste of blueberries.
Thank you @The_Dessert_Tabl
As I mention in every post related to Dallah’s new additions to the menu. They don’t have anything ordinary. Everything they do or make is really either WOW or DELICIOUS. And that happens every often. I love what they do and how they can be creative in doing it. Sometimes you think this is just simple but their ingredients or the way they present their food makes it special.
In this post we’re talking about their Caramel Praline Biscuits. They’re delicious, yummy, light, and they melt smoothly in your tongue. Truest me when I tell you that one is never enough with this dessert. The box contains 24 pieces but you’ll find them gone in no time. It makes the prefect dessert for an afternoon relaxation with a decent cup of coffee or for a nice mini gathering with your friends or family.
Thank you Dallah <3
It has been a while since we’ve all gathered to have just dinner and talk remembering the good old days. Zain Kuwait organised a dinner for only the old bloggers who are still writing and those are really few.
It was set to be in Pinxtos in Alseef strip which I rare go to because of the parking but this day it was totally worth it. We arrived there around 7pm and the whole night became a success.
There was music being played by a band called Hashtag. Loved their voices and the songs they played. The food started coming in and because it was dark, I brought my Kick flashlight with me and it was magical.
The food was really good and delicious. Talking with old bloggers was really nice. I really had a great time.
Thank you Zain Kuwait
So I’ve heard a lot about this newly opened Japanese Restaurant located in Arabella. I loved the pictures they posted of their dishes on their instagram account and I wanted to try it so badly.
It was Thursday afternoon when I called my aunt and asked her to have lunch outdoors and she agreed because she wasn’t busy. And off we went to Arabella. Good thing the place wasn’t busy YET. We went straight to Ora restaurant and their we were greeted with happy faces and smiles from everyone in the place. I loved their spirit and how they wanted to help in any way they could.
We chose our table and immediately they brought us the menu. As we are new to the place they offered to explain everything about the menu. I only wanted some explanation of some dishes and I also showed them some pictures of their instagram account because i didn’t know the name of some dishes.
The service was really good and value of money was reasonable. Quantity and quality of food was great. All i all, it was a great experience and I can wait til I go back and try some new dishes from their menu.
We ordered Salmon Crab Cones, Salmon Crab Salad,Tiger Shrimp Sushi Roll, Mango Salmon Sushi Roll and Short Rib Donburi which was beyond amazing. All of the above mentioned dishes are highly recommended.
And now let your eyes feast on the below pictures ;)
One day we were in the streets going back home when we saw a very small car which had the name Eydam on it. I picked up the name and searched for it on instagram and there it was @Eydaamkwt. I started looking at their meals and boy I started getting hungrier with every picture I saw.
The very next day I called hubs and suggested that we try them. And we did. We ordered Beef Biryani and Chicken Royal Machboos. The meals were neatly packed in nice boxes with Daqoos and Green Salad. Each meal was supposed to be for one person but the quantity was for more than one person. The box was really huge and the smell was so good.
The first thing we tried was the beef biryani and IT WAS DELICIOUS. Really good. And after that we tried the Chicken Royal Machboos and it was even better than the beef biryani. Everything was really good and perfect. I’d order from them again and again and again.
I’ve been looking at this instagram account for a couple of months now and I’ve always wanted to order from them ever since. The food looked so delicious and the presentation of the breakfast tray looked so elegant and chic.
I’m talking about @Khameer_ account who makes delicious delicious Tabdoon bread. The reason I didn’t order from them before is because the tray looked os big for few persons.
Last week, we had an occasion at school. A beloved teacher was returning back to school after 2 months break for giving birth to a lovely baby boy. So we teachers decided to give her a welcome back breakfast and I suggested we order from @Khameer_.
We ordered the large breakfast tray that comes with plain tabdoon bread and some spreads and fillings. And we also ordered 1 dozen from the tabdoon bread with fillings. We ordered 6 pieces goat cheese tabdoon and 6 pieces fig cheese tabdoon.
Everything was more than perfect. We loved everything about it and it was more than enough. In fact, we kept eating from it for 2 days. It was so delicious, fresh and yummy. But I gotta say that the tabdoon bread was kinda heavy. Oh who cares. It was delicious.
Order the breakfast tray and you won’t regret it :)
Just before going to the airport, I wanted to visit one place that I had on my list in this short trip. I’ve heard and seen a lot about Zorlu Centre-Istanbul. So we decided to end my last day in Istanbul there (I was returning back alone). We arrived there around 4pm and we were very hungry because we didn’t have a decent breakfast due to furnishing and other house chores.
We saw the first restaurant in front of us and we went inside without even checking the name :D yes, we were THAT hungry.
The decoration of the place looked beyond chick and elegant, modern and beautiful, colourful and full of life. We wanted to sit outdoors because the weather was really beautiful that day but it was full so we sat inside and we started exploring the menu. They had, Italian, American, Turkish and other cuisines. The variety of dishes was really good. We had from each cuisine a dish :)
We chose Iskender Kabab served on eggplants, Welldone Steak, Caramelised Onion Pizza and the appetiser was fried Goat Cheese served on a bed of apples with raspberry/strawberry balsamic sauce. The fried goat cheese combination with apples, balsamic and raspberry sauce was beyond amazing *Sigh* A killer and we finished it in seconds. The Iskender Kabab was the winner after the goat cheese. So tender, moist and DELICIOUS, not to mention the dressing and the eggplant sauce. The pizza was really good and light, the steak was also so good and yummy. We loved everything about the whole place and I’d visit it again to try other dishes from their menu.
It is located in Zorlu Centre.
Fried Goat Cheese
A closer look :D
Caramelised Onion Pizza
It was seafood kind of a day, so we asked our driver to take us to a really good seafood restaurant and boy he did take to a very good and fancy seafood place. We wanted to sit outdoors because the weather was really beautiful that day, rainy and not that cold.
It’s not a regular restaurant that you can wear anything to it and just head there. It’s very fancy and high class that almost everyone was wearing dresses and suits but who cares anyway ;)
We chose 3 kinds of appetizers, and my favourite is the stuffed mussels yum yum, 6 pieces of grilled jumbo prawns and 1 kilo of grilled seabass fish. Just that came around KD 60. The price doesn’t make sense at all but it was a new experience and the food tasted really really good but I wouldn’t go back to the place because I’d find the same kind of food for a lesser price.
If you’re going there as a couple then go ahead and try it, the romantic atmosphere will make you happy ;) but if you have kids or elderlies, then I wouldn’t recommend the place for them.
The purpose of my last short trip to Istanbul was to buy furniture for our apartment. My family bought an apartment last January in Akbati residence, which is a huge new compound after Behceseher area, and it is highly secured that it’s completely safe to walk in the compound after midnight. Many cafes, restaurants, bars, grocery shops, tailors, salons and a cute mall called Akbati Mall surround the compound itself. All that is just within feet from our apartment.
On a very busy tiring day, after we’ve finished cleaning, washing, arranging dishes and stuff in the apartment, we wanted to have lunch asap at 6pm (We haven’t eaten anything all day, imagine!). I looked from our balcony in the apartment and suggested we try the restaurant at the corner and everybody said yes.
The place looked so modern and chic that you’d think you’d have to pay a lot of money just for a couple of dishes but that was totally the opposite. The staff was very welcoming, one of them spoke Arabic so it wasn’t a problem dealing with them in English as not all of them speak English very well. We choose our table, it was almost empty because at 6pm nobody eats lunch or dinner, it usually gets crowded after 8pm til midnight.
We ordered Salmon Bruschetta Salad which came to be a huge dish and unexpected. Salmon Pasta, Grilled Salmon and a Burger dish (most of our dishes had salmon). Loved the Bruschetta A LOT, it was huge, satisfying and fulfilling. The pieces of salmon were very satisfying unlike some restaurants, they bring small little pieces of smoked salmon and that’s it. The salmon past was also so nice and delicious, creamy and tasty. My grandma loved her grilled salmon that she ate it all and didn’t share lol. My aunt said the burger was cooked to perfection and that it was delicious. We all loved our dishes and didn’t complain about anything. The bill came out to be around KD 20 which is very reasonable.
I’d visit the place again when I’m in town next time to try other dishes.
This restaurant was recommended by so many people and a lot instagramed about it and said it serves good Turkish food. I don’t like going to place where I see a lot of Kuwaitis and people from the region when I’m travelling but I wanted to visit this place to try the food and it was totally worth it.
We arrived around 6pm and it was crowded mashallah and by 7pm it became full house and a waiting list started. All waiters speak Arabic, so it wasn’t a problem dealing with them.
I wanted to try the dish that is cooked inside salt and presented to your table with flames :D That dish turned out to be REALLY delicious and was worth the wait (took 30 minutes to cook). I loved it and I’m recommending it to my friends and family who are going there, eat it with their fresh yogurt, yum yum. We also ordered pistachio kabab, amazzzzing. Just imagine pistachio and kebab yum yum. Their appetisers were also good. Loved the whole experience and would go there again when I’m in Istanbul soon.
من المطاعم المشهوره وايد في اسطنبول و دايما يروحون لها الخليجيين و اكثرهم كويتيين سعوديين و اماراتيين. نادر ماتلاقون اتراك بهالمكان. انا عن نفسي ما احب ازور مكان بسفره معينه فيه خليجيين بس الكل مدح هالمطعم و كان خاطري اجربه. ماشاء الله زحمه بشكل مو طبيعي بس الخدمه عندهم سريعه و حلوه و اكلهم نظيف و لذيذ جدا. انصحكم تطلبون اكتاف اللحم المطبوخه بطبقة الملح، الطبق ياخذ تقريبا نصف ساعه. قعدوا اكلوا بالمزات شويه و ريحوا على مايوصل الطلب لانه صج يستاهل النطره و اكلوه مع روبهم. و هم بعد انصحكم تطلبون الكباب بالفستق جدا جدا رائع
I’ve heard a lot about this cute little cafe facing the Bosporus and I really wanted to try so badly in this very short trip. I didn’t want to go back home without trying it and telling everyone about it.
We went there around 11am on Friday morning and I was so worried that we won’t have a table to sit on and enjoy their delicious breakfast. To my surprise, we found a table in the garden but not close the sea, well who cares as long as I’m enjoying the lovely weather and food (next time I’m going their very early).
We started with chay til they prepare our order. Our order was; cheese platter, thick cream (qesh’ta) with honey, own fried halloumi cheese, olives, fresh tomatoes and cucumbers, 2 eggs in a clay pan, fas (the reddish egg in the clay pan) and bread basket that comes as a compliment and is refilled whenever you want.
I LOVED the Fas eggs, so creamy, tangy and delicious. A must try. Their cheeses were beyond amazing, they have so many delicious kinds of cheeses that you want to try them all but unfortunately my stomach can hold little food these days :P but anyways, i took them as a takeaway and tried them later on in the car :D
The price was ok, but totally worth it for such amazing food. The atmosphere was so nice, birds were singing, trees were dancing and people were eating and listening :D Oh how I’m missing this place right now.
If you’re visiting Turkey anytime soon, try this place for BREAKFAST only.
