When we were in Dubai, we visited The Farm in Albarari area. I’ve heard about this place a lot from many people and saw many beautiful pictures on instagram but I’ve never thought it would be that magnificent. The place wasn’t that far from our hotel. We got there so easily. The gate was huge and the streets were as if you were in Europe not in a Gulf country.
We entered The Farm Restaurant which was spacious and white, so white. Relaxing and refreshing. We were seated indoors by the lovely staff and started selecting our dishes from their iPad menu (which we prefer all the time). We got cheese platter, bread basket, egg salmon florentine, salmon bagel and at the end we got the chocolate waffles with strawberries and had them with coffee outdoors.
The food was really delicious. The artificial fires and river were so beautiful and amazing. The weather was so nice, we loved the whole experience and would go back again when we’re in Dubai again.
Last month I’ve received a huge bag from @sticksnadballs_ (instagram) that had a huge tray full of yumminess. The tray had chocolate balls attached to sticks and a creamy delicious white sauce poured on them.
1 stick is more than enough, it’s heavy and the quantity is more than enough for 10 persons (From my opinion). We kept eating from it for almost a week.
The presentation of the tray and bag was really good, so you can order it if you’re visiting someone or if you want it for your gathering.
Whatever Dallah creates, rest assured that it will taste delicious and satisfy your taste buds. They’ve been experimenting for a while on a new dish that had raspberries in its ingredients, and i’m rasp-maniac-berry. I was waiting for it to come out and to my luck, I received a box from the guys behind Dallah to try it. The box was huge, so you should have seen my face the moment I opened the box and saw lots of jewels waiting to enter my tummy
The taste was really good, not that sugary or too sweet, not that heavy. In fact, you can eat 2 in a row, and that what I did. A combination of creamy custard with raspberries and crushed biscuits. Really good. Well done guys.
Last week, my sister and I went to The Village not knowing where to eat, we thought of going there and then decide where to eat. We saw The Junkyard and decided to try its food. The whole experience was great, everything was perfect except for the cold weather, the doors were opened and the place was very chilly. The service and food were really awesome. Also the prices were very reasonable. Check out what we ordered:
Last week, my husband and I went to try Pizzetta’s new menu for break fast. We tried them before for su7oor click here. But this time, it was an early bird meal. The place in Albede’a was very peaceful and quiet, nice if you want some privacy with your husband away from crowded places.
The food was really good, we loved everything on the menu but of course we couldn’t try everything So here’s what we ordered and enjoyed to the max
Last week, I received the delicious huge blue box from chocolateness not knowing that it has a new flavour. I thought I’d be eating the normal chocolate molten cake, but when I opened the box and saw a lot of green, I got excited like a little baby. I’m a huge fan of pistachio than to Pick and there it is, Pistachio Molten Cake with Caramel Sauce in front of my own eyes.
It arrived hot as always. The taste was superb, pistachio and caramel=Heaven on earth. Add to it, a sugarless cup of coffee and you have the perfect combination.
It’s available now for order. Try it if you like pistachio and caramel. Thank you Chocolateness <3
Last Thursday, I dropped Proud To Be Kuwaiti village a visit which I didn’t like at all. It was really horrible, not like last year. The only thing that I really liked about it, was Dolma Kai (@dolmakai) The only business that attracted my attention and taste buds.
Think of dolma (vine leaves) crispy and chewy…a new experience indeed. I’m totally in love. You choose between 2 sauces, I got the tamarind one and it was awesome. LOVED IT. Try them if you’re going to the village or order from them, but i prefer them fresh and hot.
Yesterday, I attended Costa Coffee’s fun event where they hosted a Japanese artist who came all the way from Japan to Kuwait just to entertain Costa’s customers. Kohei Matsumo is a famous artist in Japan who is known by drawing on coffee.
I arrived a little bit late and it was crowded, but the sweet Dalal Alsaeed managed to get my picture drawn on my coffee, I told her to ask him to draw an owl on my coffee and voila as you can see in the pictures, my cute lil owl
Kohei Matsumo will be at Proud To Be Kuwaiti village, if you want him to draw on your coffee, get your sketch ready and head to the village
Last week I received a mini bag that had a mini box and inside there were mini flavoured chocolate bites from 21 Carrots. You can’t imagine how cute they looked, so tiny yet DELICIOUS. I loved the peach (i guess) and the raspberry ones. It goes perfectly with unsugared Turkish or Arabic coffee. It’s one of my favourite things, a delicious piece of chocolate before drinking coffee *heaven*.
21 carrots has a lot of delicious coffee deserts and other delights, perfect for your gatherings or receptions. The store is located in Alhamra Tower.
On the first day of 2014, my husband and I went for lunch at Big Smoke Burger, which has opened recently at Divonne Complex. The place is spacious, the outdoor area is big and inside it has an upper floor. You go to the front, order your food, get your number and wait for 10 to 15 minutes. Everything is prepared in front of you which is nice. But there were few things I didn’t like, 2 items in the menu weren’t available, the presentation of the fries wasn’t that nice and the prices were kinda high.
We ordered the spicy smoke burger and another burger which i forgot its name. The spicy burger was delicious, I loved it. But the other burger was regular, not that much. The fries was also delicious but as I said didn’t like the presentation. I’d go back to try other kinds of burgers.
Last week, my friends and I were invited to a fashion event at Altijariya Tower and after we finished from the event we decided to have dinner at the newly opened burger place @DinerKW (instagram). The place looked very cozy and small. Good for quiet dinner with your husband or friends away from crowded places.
We ordered what we thought would taste delicious but one of the owners came to us and recommended that we try the Havana Burger which is a best seller and so we did. The only thing that wasn’t that good is the timing of the dishes, the fries arrived very early because the burger took a while to prepare. But the food was really good, you have to try it. Check out what we ordered:
I’ve heard about Matcha Green Tea from PickYo cafe. I actually thought that they created that name “matcha” but then I did some digging and found out that the Matcha green tea powder existed long time ago and we just knew about it. I saw a lot of pictures posted on Pick’s integral account talking about their iced matcha. Haven’t tried and didn’t think of trying it. Then, I saw them advertising their new matcha green tea latte and that it will be launched at Qout Market. When I got their, I asked for it and tried it with my husband for the first time. We both LOVED it. It was really delicious and warm. Certainly a drink made for the cold weather. I got addicted to, I started going frequently to their Hitteen branch because it’s close to us.
After a while, I saw people selling the powder on instagram, it became a hype. Everybody started buying it and getting addicted. I gotta tell you that it has a lot of benefits. Read about it HERE. I bought a can and tried to copy their latte but i actually could’t get the exact taste. But it tasted really good.
