Today we decided to try the Italian Restaurant Olio located in Messilah Bech Hotel. We’ve made a reservation 3 hrs in advance and we’ve got our reservation confirmed for 3pm. But because we’ve arrived early to the hotel and got our room before the regular check in time, I called them again and said I wasn’t to make the reservation at 2pm and they told me to come and just enjoy lunch. The restaurant is located at the end of the hotl near the swimming pool area/beach. Loved the decoration and the seating area they chose for us. The atmosphere was really excellent and the staff was very nice, kind and helpful.
We’ve ordered the Rocca Salad with Mushroom and Cherry Tomato. Saffron Seafood Risotto and Oyster Pasta (forgot the name in Italian :P) All the dishes were great especially the Saffron Risotto and the Pasta. Jana loved the pasta alt and kept calling it noodles lol :P I also loved that they had some colours and colouring books for the kids to enjoy and a kids menu too!
The whole experience was amazing.
I haven’t written in a couple of weeks because you know we tend to get busy in Ramadan and we barely have time to scratch our heads. Mashallah time flies by so fast.
As Ramadan coming to an end, I believe all of you are thinking “where to have breakfast”? And I’ve saved this post for this day. The perfect place would be Prime & Toast, but you have to be there very early so you can have a decent table. It gets really crowded around 9 or 10 am and I hate crowded places.
The place still serves delicious meals and it hasn’t lost its touch, quality, service and awesomeness. I love it and will always love it.
Our last visit was a week before Ramadan and we ordered the following;
Bacon Bagel with Herbed Hollandaise Sauce
Salmon Bagel on Eggs with Sauce
We can’t get over the Hangover *yum yum*
French Toast with Berries
I received a box full of healthy chips made of Soya Beans & Potato. They have 5 flavours, all tasted really good, and not to mention DELICIOUS. This is good when you want to snack on something and not feel guilty, friends gatherings, chalet, camping, etc. You name it. Only 83 Cals for 17 pieces, can you imagine that? %70 less fat.
I loved it.
Last week, I had a chance to visit the newly opened mall in Salmiya-Salem Albumarak Street The Cube Mall which to my surprise has only cafes and restaurants, no stores except for Xcite. So imagine a mall filled cafes & restaurants. It’s just made for you to go and hang out with your friends and family members or just chill out. I actually loved the place because it was quiet.
We chose Before Chocolate cafe to have a quick coffee and a kind of dessert to enjoy our time. And the place turned out to be really good. We loved the service, the food, and everything in that place.
You should order the Davous dessert, it’s reallllly good and heavenly delicious.
As you can see from the [pictures, it’s a chocolate place, so you can pick your kind of chocolate from the counter and have it served to your table or just have take away.
How did the above picture make you feel ha?
Heartbreaking, I know. I just kept looking at it onceI opened the box and didn’t want to touch it at all. It’s like it’s untouchable :D So delicate and beautiful, not to mention so beautiful <3
This cheesecake is made of coconut and chocolate and garnished with Ferrero Rochet white chocolate *yum yum*. It’s also chilled. So cold as if you’re eating ice cream.
I loved it a lot and you have to try it. It’s really huge and I think it’s good for a gathering of 12 persons.
Check their account they have other flavours @Nena_Sweets_Kw
How many Indian places we have in Kuwait to dine in? Un-countable actually but which are the best ones? They are very rare, the good Indian restaurants in Kuwait and one of them I’ve discovered last week whenI went with my father and Jana to have lunch in The Avenues, we saw cope Chimeny restaurant. We were greeted by a nice staff and we chose a table close to the entrance because Jana wanted to see the fountain :P
I swear in just 30 minutes the place was FULL HOUSE and a waiting list started. I’m not surprised that people actually want to wait for a while just to dine in this place.
My dad started his meal with a chicken corn soup which he loved a lot. Then for appetisers we ordered Potata Tawa and it turned out to be Heavenly delicious and I highly recommend it. Really good.
Then the main dishes were Gosht Parda Biryani and Morgue Makhni. All were really really good especially the Parda Biryani, I loved the taste and how it was presented to us.
When you are in the avenues, you have to try this place.
Seas View is the new IT place in Abu Halifa having a number of great cafes and restaurants. I;ve already written about The Gathering Bistro and now I’m writing about Costa Coffee new branch opening in the same place. Again Sea View is located just next to Kuwait Magic.
Now, the theme of the opening party was London and it definitely felt like we were in London with all the music, customised cookies, food and souvenirs.
I loved the space of the new branch and the decoration was elegant and chic as usual.
A new place to enjoy your time reading a book or hanging out with your friends.
A couple of weeks ago was my sister in law’s birthday and we wanted to surprise her with something nice and delicious. And I remembered that @Gardenia_Bakery (Instagram) had this cute letter cake. I made the call and ordered it through the telephone and it was delivered on time.
It came with mini pink flowers on the end of the letter S and its colour was cream/Offwhite and I wanted the flavour to be red velvet because it’s everybody’s favourite.
I thought the cake looked small and it wasn’t going to be enough for all the family members but it was more than enough. I believe it’s good for 8-10 persons, or maybe more depending on the portion people eat.
They also have other beautiful designs for Birthday, Graduation and Congratulations cakes.

A couple of weeks ago I received an invitation from the lovely people of @GatheringKW restaurant to visit their new branch which has opened recently in Abu Halifa-Seas View just next to Kuwait Magic Mall and try their delicious food.
We went on a Monday evening and the place was really quiet and serene. Not so many people invading the cafes and restaurants yet.
As it was quite hot, we were seated indoors and the lightening was really perfect for some food photoshoot :)
We ordered Mini Beef Tacos and Ice Cream Parmesan Salad for starters. I’ve already talked about the salad in my previous posts but the Mini Tacos were really something good and delicious to enjoy before a hearty meal but know that they’re quite heavy. We also ordered Chips ‘n Cheese which was delicious but also very heavy for a starter.
Then the main courses were Steak Fillet and Mozzarella Chicken Burger. We loved both of them very much but the Mozzarella Chicken Burger was a WINNER. Highly Recommended.
As for the branch itself. It’s nit bigger than the one in Salhiya but it’s somehow it’s more relaxing and soothing as it’s not a crowded area as I said yet.
A delicious and yummy cake arrived to my door last week. It was beautifully wrapped and boxed in a huge lovely box and put in a bag which was huge and heavy. I started wondering what could that be? I mean I knew I’ll be receiving a cake, but what kind of cake was it and why it was that heavy!
It was a huge cake that had maybe 4 or 5 layers of pistachio and vanilla mixed with cardamom and saffron and surrounded with white chocolate feathers. The cake comes with caramel sauce that you pour on the cake before eating it or you can have it on the side of the plate if people don’t want to add extra calories to their plates.
I really loved the taste of the cake. It makes a perfect choice for Ramadan, because it has all that Kuwaiti touch and taste. And btw all of their cakes come with sauces, depending on your choice of cake. Check their account they have nice choices.
This wasn’t my first time trying Wok n Go Chinese food. I’ve tried their food when they’ve opened their restaurant in Alhamra tower as a delivery. I’ve never experienced dining in their place but I have to tell you that the food comes really fresh and hot. It doesn’t feel as a delivery food at all.
This time we’ve tried their Wok n Go Special Soup which was the winning dish. I loved the combination of creamy soup and seafood, highly recommended. Also the Sweet & Sour Noodles was really great. We all loved it. The dynamite shrimp was ok along with the vegetables spring rolls but the sesame chicken was really good and the crab salad was decent.
All in all, it was a very lovely lunch that my husband and I enjoyed very much and we’ll keep on eating from them whenever we have the chance.
The quality of their food and service is still superb and I hope they keep it like that.
Thank you Wok n Go & Ghaliah for the lovely lunch.
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.
