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 :)
This is the 2nd Annual Celebration of “For A Greener World” program that is held in Kidzania and in collaboration with several companies from Kuwait.
The program is supposed to teach and train children on how to save the environment, save energy and take care of our world through workshops, games and art.
Jana & I received an invitation to go and explore the new theme and the decoration. I love how they turn the place upside down, a total makeover takes place whenever they have a new theme or program. Last time it was winter, this time it was all spring and green. Colours were surrounding the place, flowers, water and so many more.
There was also a place just for recycled item from tires which was really cute and nice. I loved the whole atmosphere and the purpose of this program. Of course Jana couldn’t attend one of these workshops because she’s too young to understand and she got very grumpy because it was a very crowded day mashallah.
This time, Jana went to the colouring place once we entered. She started saying “Alwan, alwan” (colours) and was pointing at the art shop place. She remembered. She enjoyed colouring and painting for 15 minutes. Then she wanted to ride the fire truck and we had to wait 30 minutes :/ but it was worth it coz she had lots of fun.
“For a Greener World” program is until the 2nd of May. Check their instagram account @kidzaniaKuwait for workshops info and take your kids to have fun and enjoy something new.
So I’ve been thinking about joining a gym for a couple of months now and I thought of sharing some gyms that I’ve tried and other gyms that i’d like to try one day.
I’ve tried Curves but the style didn’t work out for me. I then tried Pilates and More which was good at the beginning but then it started to get crowded and the place was far from home (Hitteen to Salmiya). There’s Flex for women in Shaab but still the place is really far from home and kinda crowded. I hate crowded places/gyms.
Last year I tried Fitness First which is located in 360Mall and very close to home and I really liked it. From classes to instructors to the place itself. It only lacks a swimming pool but that wasn’t an issue because i hate public swimming pools :P They do take care of their trainees and help them whenever they need it. I only stopped because I travelled and then became lazy but now I’m back to my energised persona :D
Now another gym that I’m interested to try is Alhamra Thermae. It looks really huge and really nice. I’m loving all the decoration, equipments and classes. The only thing that is making me think about it hundred times is the location of the place :/ in the heart of Kuwait city which is always crowded.
That was my mini posts about some gyms in Kuwait. If you have gyms that are close to Hiteen please mention them :D
Last week, I received 4 kinds of pizzas from the newly opened bakery located in Salmiya called @Beirut_Bakeryq8 (instagram)
The food arrived really HOT and fresh. The cheese was melted in a very seductive way and I was so tempted to try them all but of course I couldn’t, after all they are carbs and it was kinda difficult trying them all. But i did try the other kinds the other day and they were really good after staying the fridge. Anyways I loved leftovers :D
My favourite was the Margarita and Pepperoni Pizzas, they were really good especially their tomato sauce, the others were good too.
Try ordering from them, they have great food especially for work :D
On the week of Mother’s Day, Jana & I received a gift from Fantasy World. Once Jana saw the wrapped gift she started singing Happy Birthday :P
When I opened it I was surprised to find that it was Loom Bracelet Mega Kit. To be honest, I didn’t think it was suitable for Jana’s age and I myself don’t know how to use it.
I googled some youtube tutorials and from there I picked up the basics and sat with Jana on Saturday morning to do just one bracelet.
It took us around 40 minutes to do that mini bracelet you can see in the pictures below :D but I loved the time Jana & I spent together putting that bracelet together. It wasn’t easy at first but later it got easier.
I’ll be doing a bracelet every Saturday or Friday morning with Baby Jana :D
Thank you @FantasyWorldToys
Last week, we were sitting doing nothing waiting for the next day to come to he’d to work and I didn’t want to spend it at home. It was Wednesday evening when I asked my husband to go out and have dinner in a new place.
I suggested the newly opened burger place called Brothers located in Almubarakiya in the recently revamped corner called Somo and the husband agreed.
We arrived there around 7pm and it was really quiet on weekdays, loved the whole atmosphere, the lights, the music and the place itself was really cozy.
We ordered Brothers Classic Burger, Grilled Chicken Burger and Fries with Caramelised Onion Mayo sauce. We loved the beef classic burger ALOT, it was moist and juicy, the fries were really good along the sauce and the grilled chicken burger was ok.
I’d love to go back and try the other burgers and fries sauces.
Slider Station, Cocoa Room, Open Flame Kitchen and now Nomad Kitchen.
A 1973 airstream food truck that serves delicious and amazing food in the middle of nowhere or in certain places. This truck was created by the talented Basel Alsalem and serves some famous and special dishes to the public. It moves from place to place and you find it only on weekends.
I’ve been wanting to try it ever since I’ve known about it from instagram but I couldn’t go to Bnaider 267 road where it serves food on Friday and Saturday. And when I had the chance to go to Bnaider, the truck wasn’t there :( I was really disappointed.
Last week, I came to know that they’ll be serving their delicious food at GulfRun festival which was held in collaboration with KidsVille carnival at Sirbb Circuit. I’ve never been there before but it wasn’t difficult to find. Too Jana around 4pm and when we reached there, the place was kind of quiet. I kept searching and looking for the truck and there it was intront of my own eyes. It has been a very long chase.
Went immediately to check the menu even though I knew what I wanted to order but I had to see what they served on that day. Delicious food. I wanted to order the whole menu but unfortunately I couldn’t. So i decided to order their famous signature dishes. The Srirarcha Glazed Lobster Rolls & Rockin’ Shrimps with Hot Honey Glazed Sauce.
You have to try their food if you haven’t yet. Follow them on instagram to check the mazing photos of their dishes @NomadKitchen
Last week, I received an invitation from the Marketing Department of Jumeirah Messila Beach Hotel to attend the re-opening of Salt restaurant and try their new menu. If you remember my first post about the hotel Read Here which was 2 years ago when it first opened its doors to the public and we were all fascinated about the decoration, the rooms, the lobby and everything related to it.
Now, imagine how would the restaurants look like if the hotel was like that!
I’ve heard a lot about Salt and wanted to try it so many times but I couldn’t or time wasn’t in my favour. But when the opportunity came, I really wanted to make time for such event.
Husband and I arrived on time and we were greeted by the lovely ladies from the Marketing Team Carole, Laila & Amna. All were so sweet & nice. The waiter welcomed us with non-alcoholic Champagne and we started chatting for a bit.
Then a short speech from the Chef and the GM. There was a display of some of their dishes which we tried some of them, not all of course.
The food was superb, loved the Lobster Butter, it was fabulous. The Salmon Salad was really light and full of flavour. The steak so moist and melts in your mouth not to mention the seafood platter. Jumbo shrimps were grilled to perfection.
The desserts were really good. Fresh fruit, coffee molten cake, macaroons and so many.
Loved everything about the place.
Last week, I visited The Taste of Kuwait Exhibition which was held at Mishref Fairgrounds. I received 2 tickets from the lovely Fashionet to attend the exhibition. They had regular tickets and VIP ones. Unfortunately, the VIP tickets had nothing extra except for VIP parkings and 5KD vouchers, that was it. People complained about buying VIP tickets for KD25 which were very similar to the regular tickets which were for KD3.
Talking about the exhibition. I thought it will be HUGE considering the advertisements I’ve seen in so many places. Instagram, twitter, blogs etc. But it was kinda small. It wasn’t crowded at all. I don’t know why there wasn’t a lot of audience even though there was a great amount of ads everywhere. Anyways, I hate crowded places :)
Talking about booths, restaurants and food. On the first day, I tried Mini Falafel from Dakakeen, Pistachio Gelato from Angelato and Red Velvet Mushroom with Cheese from Cravenation.
On the second day, I went at night and it was more lively. I tried Burger Factory Classic Burgers and Rainbow Ice-Cream cake from Angelato. Everything was so delicious.
I received an invitation months ago to try the newly opened burger place called Cali Burger. I couldn’t go on the same day but it was on my mind to try it some other day.
That some other day was last weekend. When we had a very long break and we went on a family trip to Alwafra, then Bnaider, and finally ended the day at Cali Burger.
I was eager to try their Wild Style (Animal Style In-N-Out) fries, that they say it’s almost like In-N-Out. And we also ordered the classic cheese burger.
The burgers were good but not wow. The size, the cooking, the bun and the sauce, all were really good but as I said, not that WOW.
Now, talking about the fries. NOTHING, and I mean it, NOTHING can reach the goodness of the Animal Style Fries of In-N-Out no matter what you do or say. The fries were good and the sauce was nice but it wasn’t like In-N-Out :)
My humble opinion. If you want, you can try it and see what I mean :D
The best thing you receive from other people is something that you can eat, enjoy and share with either your family or friends.
Last week, the lovely Sarah from @SarahDish who makes the menu for @GardeniaBakery sent me their new item who has been recently added to their menu. The tart is covered with Swiss chocolate and pecans, covered with custard and whipped cream and topped with strawberries, blackberries and raspberries.
What I loved about this tart is being very light and easy on the stomach. You can eat as much as you want from it without feeling full or heavy.
It is now available in their bakery or for delivery. Call them or drop them a visit.
Thank you Sarah & Gardenia Bakery :*
I received a very lovely and hearty invitation form @Ghalia & @Albandairy to join them on a trip to Yasmin Farms in Alwafra City. Sadly, a sand storm hit Kuwait on Friday and my dad became worried that something will happen the very next morning (Saturday). So he advised me to stay home and by advised, it means that I had no choice.
The very next weekend, I arranged for a day filled with adventures starting Yasmin Farm in Alwafra. We reached the place very easily using google maps. The place was really crowded, we didn’t get the chance to try the farm tour but we walked around the cafe, the shop and the backyard where you get other food stations serving you all kinds of food (or not all, maybe some). We ate falafel as a snack before the heavy meal we had later on (Cali Burger post coming).
The farm wes really nice and lovely, as if you’re not in Kuwait. Their shop was kinda small, it needs to be bigger because it cannot hold a lot of people.
I think i’ll be going there again for the tour because everybody says it’s really nice.
