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.
A couple of weeks ago, we decided to visit the newly opened Alshaheed Park and good thing the weather was still okay, but now I don’t think anyone can enjoy visiting it. You’ll have to wait til October or November.
Anyways, the park is located in front of AlTijariya Tower in Sharq area. It is really big and beautiful I didn’t expect it to be this big. We arrived there around 6pm and went underground to find a parking and it was huge and spacious not to mention the fountains in every corner inside the parking. We took the escalator up and there we were inside the park.
I loved the fountains and lakes in every corner in the park. It was very relaxing for the eye and soul. I pictures myself sitting there reading a good book and enjoying the lovely weather (not these days of course). Cafes and restaurants will be opening soon nshallah as I’ve read on their instagram account. Also they have exhibitions every now and then, advertised on their instagram account. If you want to know more about them follow them on instagram to be updated.
What I loved most about this park is that it was designed and taken care of by Kuwaiti youth. I’m really proud.
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.
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 ;)
I’ve bought this book not knowing it was written by J.K. Rowling herself. I just liked the synopsis and it has been a while since I’ve read a crime novel.
I’m going to tell you the truth. I promised myself not to buy a book that exceeds 350 pages because some writers include un-necessary details that make the novel somehow boring but I got this book which is over 450 pages and I was never bored at all. On the contrary. I liked reading it slowly to enjoy reading every detail, every sentence, every conversation. It was really interesting and It has been a while since I’ve read a book this good.
This is supposed to be the 2nd book for Agent Comoran Strike series. The first book was called The Cuckoo’s Calling which I haven’t read yet and I’m planning to. The good thing is that you can read the 2nd book without reading the 1st book and getting lost. Only few bits about the main character’s life which you can follow follow up with easily.
All the characters in this book were amazing. Each had its own characteristics and persona. You get to suspect them all from their actions and the words they say in the book. The suspense that Agent Strike creates moving from character to another and analysing what he thinks and who’s the killer and why he did it. So on…
A book within a book. The metaphors and what each character resembled in the novel inside this book were mind blowing. I loved it and I thought this was creative writing at its best.
I’m planning to read the first book asap and I will not stop reading for her as Robert Galbraith.
