Silk Restaurant Experience @AlthurayaCity Crowne Plaza

1

When I stayed in the newly renovated Crwone Plaza located in Farwaniya city, I had the chance to try some delicious dishes in Silk restaurant which is the main restaurant of the hotel and located in the middle just infant of the lobby. I love the design of this hotel, everything is in the open with bright sunlight above you.

We went down from our Royal Suite around 1:30 pm because we were really hungry and started looking at the menu that had a variety of dishes. They also have healthy menu, for those who are dieting! But seriously, who goes on diet when on vacation or relaxation mood?😛

We ordered Lobster Soup and Avocado Shrimp Salad for starters, I have to say both were really amazing but the best is the Avocado Shrimp Salad … HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Main dishes were: Mini Trio Burgers with Brie Cheese, Seas Bass, Mushroom Risotto and Tenderloin Steak (medium well-done) … All these dishes turned out to be really REALLY good. Honestly, I had a hard time deciding which is the best of them all. But my favourite were the Sea Bass served on a bed of sweet potato and the Mini Trio Burgers served with melted Brie cheese …. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. All of them

We ended our feast with Kind Kunafa that had something different in its taste which was really nice and unique. Loved the whole experience.

And at  night, we went back to the restaurant to have light dinner. We ordered Shrimp Mango Pizza and Lobster Dumplings … Oh that Pizza *yumminess*

You have to try the place.

BRW Coffee Experience-360 Mall

1

A couple of weeks ago I wanted to try the newly opened coffee shop which is part of Open Flame Kitchen restaurant called BRW Coffee.

We went there on Friday afternoon around 5pm and as expected it was crowded but what wasn’t expected is that the staff told us that we have to wait 3 hours for a table just to drink coffee! I was really astonished. I told them it’s just coffee and we want to sit outside not inside the restaurant. They told us the tables outside are part of the restaurant! As if I didn’t know that!!!! Why haven’t they separated the coffee shop from the restaurant?!

Anyways, we left then came back on a weekday which was Monday I believe and they also told me I have to wait 30 minutes until a table is available, I said fine, I can do window shopping in 30 minutes.

I came back and they called me and gave me a table outside the restaurant. I ordered Cortado coffee and Caramel Donuts. The order arrived immediately, it didn’t take time to prepare it. Thank god, the busyness of the place didn’t affect the coffee shop. Then I ordered the Iced Cube Latte.

All in all, I loved the experience, loved the kinds of coffee I tried, loved the service, the atmosphere and the prices were very reasonable. But I wouldn’t come back to enjoy coffee on a table because it will take a lot of time to be seated. I’d go back to have coffee to go.

Afternoon Tea at @AlthurayaCity Crowne Plaza Hotel

1

Today, I was invited to try the newly addition to the menu of Silk restaurant located in Althuraya City Crowne Plaza Hotel (@AlthurayaCity)

Let me give a brief introduction about the hotel. It’s a new modern hotel which opened its doors a couple of months ago. It’s part of 3 hotels; Holiday Inn (The old one), Althuraya City Crowne Plaza (The new one) which I’ll be reviewing and posting about it by the end of May, and Intercontinental Hotel which began construction and will be taking a while till it opens its doors.

Silk restaurant is the main restaurant of the hotel and I’ll be reviewing the menu soon inshallah but today I had the opportunity a selection of fine desserts, scones and sandwiches.

The 3 level tower had amazing desserts, fine delicious scones and light sandwiches. My favourite was the scones with strawberry jam and clotted cream, yumminess. Highly Recommended:) The salmon sandwich was also yummy and light, totally English style. And mini chocolate desserts with raspberries (my favourite fruit) was enjoyable.

We also had Chocolate Milk Fondue and it was amazing…Loved it with the marshmallow and the fruit. A great side with the tray. And because I’m a coffee person, I had coffee with all those yummy delights.

It was a nice hour spent in the afternoon with the team of Crwone Plaza Hotel and the interior of the hotel at night is so relaxing with all the colours and greens.

A Treat from @DallahKuwait

1

A couple of weeks ago, I received a lovely package from our friends @DallahKuwait containing their new addition to the menu and Arabic Coffee Dallah *yumyum*

Of course, you have to know something, that whatever they add it has to be amazing. This time it was heavenly delicious. They have created Mini Caramelised Pecan Bites … Oh ma lord, yummy, chewy and glittery. One is not enough, you keep on having bite after bite without you noticing that the box is about to be empty.

I really loved it❤

Fine Dining at @Fauchon_Kuwait Le Gourmet Cafe

1

A new branch of Fauchon has just opened its doors to its comers with a new concept only in Salhiya Mall (inside the mall). I first though it was the one outdoors but then I discovered there is another one inside the mall.

Now this branch offers fine dining/luxury dishes that are not served in the other branches, only in this one and I was invited to try their new signature dishes and especially the interactive desserts dishes.

The fine dining dishes have a separate menu, also looks really nice and elegant, covered with white leather and gold embossing or maybe silver😛 can’t actually remember.

For starters, we ordered the Salmon Millefeuille and Calamari Tempura Salad. Both dishes were amazing, especially the salad, yummy with that greenish sauce.

Later on, we continued with Fresh Oysters (huge ones) served with butter and bread, now this dish was really a winner. I was looking every where in Kuwait for this dish but couldn’t find and now Fauchon Le Gourmet Cafe has it on the menu. Also we tried the yummy Escargots (snails) with a delicious green sauce. It was really amazing, loved the whole experience with the special silverware and all. It’s a must try.

After that we finished our lunch with Beef Carpaccio and Creamy Lobster dish. I can’t tell you how awesome those dishes were, mind blowing. A MUST TRY. You can’t skip having these dishes when you’re there.

The ending was with their signature interactive desserts dishes which are new and unique. We tried three dishes. Eggpectations (Coconut, pineapple,chocolate) which was my favourite, the combination of the ingredients was really amazing especially with the mint. My aunt loved Fauchon forest which had ice cream, dates and chocolate, she said it was the best. And we also tried the Lotus Brownie cake which was okay.

Thank you Fauchon……Can’t wait to go again and try other dishes:)

I’m loving the photos❤

Mini Molten Cakes by @_Gathering_

1

A couple of days ago, I received a huge bag from @_gathering_ having 2 boxes inside it. I wondered what could it be?

A big box was filled with mini molten cakes,,,the same flavours but with a smaller size, which I find better than the older size. With this cute mini molten cup, you can actually have more than 1 flavour😀

The smaller box had mini bites of Salted Pecans … so delicious and 2 bites are not enough at all. Loved the whole package.

Thank you @_gathering_

Creation Burger Experience

1

Every Saturday, we all gather at my grandparents’ house in Mishref on a delicious Kuwaiti feast and sometimes International dishes are added to the table. But one Saturday, we decided to change our routine and get away from home made Kuwaiti food and order a burger station.

My brother chose @CreationBurger because he had tried it long time ago with his friends. Why not?

They arrived on time fully equipped and started preparing the mini burgers/sliders. They were 2 ladies who were smiling all the time and served us in a great way, we loved dealing and chatting with them

The quality of the meat and chicken was really good, loved it, not to mention the buns and the variety of sauces they had with them.

It was a great experience. You should all try them.

Aprons & Hammers-Dubai

7

I’ve always wanted to try this place ever since its opening. I wanted to arrange so many visits to Dubai just for the sake of this place but nothing worked. Now, that I was there for the Emirates Literature Festival, I wanted to go to it so badly.

We went to the one in Sheikh Zayed Boulevard but they’ve told us it’s closed because of the fire that happened in new year. So we took another taxi and went to the one in Jumeirah Beach Road. Imagine, it took us more than 2 hours to reach the restaurant in JBR. The traffic was awful but we were on the road and the place was on our mind, so there was no way we were changing our destination.

We reached the place around 7pm and good thing we found a table outdoors, hence the lovely weather. We ordered Clams, Crab Bucket and Lobsters. Everything turned out to be more than amazing. I really can’t describe the taste, mind blowing:) We ordered the Crab Bucket with Creamy Lemon Butter sauce and the Lobsters with Creamy Saffron Sauce.

Just amazing.

Breakfast at Fume -Duabi

1

One of the places that were  on my list to visit and try their food was Fume which has many locations but we chose the one in Menzil Down Town Hotel, so we can later walk to Dubai Mall.

The place is located in the hotel but has a door from the outside facing Sheikh Zayed Boulevard which was from where we came. The restaurant opens at 8 am in the morning and it’s not crowded at that time in the weekend. So quiet and serene. Perfect place to have breakfast in and enjoy some quality time by yourself or with your loved ones.

I didn’t need any of the waiters to help me with the menu because I’ve already decided what to have before landing in Dubai😀 I was following their instagram account and had some dishes in mind.

We ordered the Beach Breakfast and The Arabic Breakfast. Both tasted really good, fresh and delicious. The service was good, quality of food superb and quantity was more than good. Value of money is reasonable considering how expensive Dubai is.

The only thing that we didn’t like is that they don’t have cheese platter or any kind of cheese😦 and that they don’t serve desserts early, not until 12pm. Too bad.

But it was a great experience and we loved it😀

Serendipity 3-Dubai Festival Mall

1

I still remember the moment I stepped inside this beautiful and amazing restaurant in Las Vegas and started taking photos of the beautiful decoration and then the delicious food.

I was really excited when I knew that it opened a branch in Dubai and couldn’t wait to try it. We ordered the ABC Burger & Portobello Mushroom, I actually didn’t notice that it was the same exact order that we had in Las Vegas😛 Guess what? It turned out to be really amazing, and this place has better decoration than the one in LV. We also ordered the artichoke and crab dipping, which turned out to be heavenly delicious, you have to try it when you’re there.

The prices are the same, nothing more nothing less. The service was really good. I loved the experience.

Healthy Additions @MakiRest

1

Last week, I’ve been invited to Maki Restaurant-Burj Jassem branch to try their latest additions to their menu and they are very healthy and delicious additions.

We were seated and introduced to the menu and what we will be trying and we also saw few new dishes that we wanted to try.

We met the chef that explained the names of the dishes and that most of them will contain Red rice:)

The dessert is still not on the menu, they’re still trying few things with it but it was really amazing.

Under each picture, I’ll write my opinion of each dish and it ingredients.

Chaine Fores Haze Salad

Ingredients: Red quinoa, carrot, frisse, cress shish green, white radish, cherry tomato, avocado, truffles & special dressing.

Verdict: Now this one was really good, loved how it was presented inside a bowl as a forest with fog & mist. The taste was dreamy and superb. Highly Recommended.

Jawi Maki

Ingredients: Tempura Prawn, avocado, topped with shredded ebi, umi wrap, rocket served with Maki special sauce.

Verdict: This one will be my IT maki platter. Loved everything about it. The combination of the ingredients were really amazing. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Nadia Maki & Akagome Mowaffak Maki

Verdict: Both dishes were ok. Not wow, but acceptable.

8

Akagume Smoked Kung Pao Salmon Steak

Ingredients: Smoked salmon steak served with red rice, asparagus, green chili, truffles, carrots, boo chou, spinach, pinenut, coriander, portabello mushrooms with black truffle oil.

Verdict: DELICIOUSNESS. This dish from the picture tells everything. Salmon and Prawn were my favourite. Loved both of them. The marination of the shrimp was really yummy.

1

Agakome Prawn Tepenyaki

Ingredients: Brown teppen served with red rice, asparagus, green chili, truffles, carrots, boo choy, spinach, pine nut, portabello mushrooms with black truffles oil.

Verdict: MY FAVOURITE. Same as the salmon above. Highly recommended.

9

Black Rice Seafood Risotto

Ingredients: Prawn, scallop, black cod, asparagus, onion, garlic, shiso cress, black truffles oil with risotto black rice.

Verdict: Loved the texture of this dish, how creamy and blackish it was. Moist and goes straight to you tummy. The variety of seafood was really great, not just prawn and fish, so many other kinds were presentable as you can see. It needed more salt which was adjustable. Recommended.

10

Momo Crumble

Ingredients: Raspberry, cranberry, peach and other things (not sure)

Verdict: AMAZZZZING. The mixture of the above fruits was beyond my expectations. Loved it and it was served really hot, so the ice cream melted above everything and the delightful spoon had everything that we wanted to put inside our tummy😀

This has to be added to the menu.

Thank you @MakiRest❤

Dean & Deluca New Healthy Menu @The_Avenues

1

I went to Dean & Deluca last month to try their newly added dishes on their healthy menu. The variety of dishes was quite decent and they looked super healthy.

We ordered the Quinoa Salad (It was okay). Some appetisers (Pesto Hummus, Muhammara, Baba Ghanouj) Those were really delicious, yummy and awesome. They tasted better than the quinoa salad which was somehow ordinary.

Now let’s talk about the main dishes … We picked the Salmon and Chicken Kebab dishes. The salmon was really good, cooked to perfection and the side dish that came with it was yummy, it was a salad cup that had tiny balls which tasted really good. The marination of the chicken kebab was also good and filled with good spices.

We also ordered the steak which we didn’t like, not recommended.

Great dishes indeed…No need to feel guilty at all.
