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.

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.

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.

Valentine’s Day Lunch @OishiiKW

2

A couple of weeks ago, precisely on Valentine’s Day, I was invited to dine at Oishii restaurant located in Aljawhara Tower in Kuwait City. This isn’t my first visit to the place, I love the food and quiet atmosphere especially in the afternoons when it gets really quiet inside the place when it’s really loud out in the streets of the busy city.

I chose lunch around 3 pm to have some quality and quiet time with my husband which we really need away from the house and all the routines and problems in our daily life. I was wondering how the decoration would be and I was astonished to see how they set out table. It isn’t that fancy, elegant & simple yet mind blowing and romantic.

There was a red flower on my seat (just for me lol nothing for him) and then we were greeted with a pink sparkly juice which my husband liked and ordered more of it and then we chose some fancy dishes that we wanted to try.

This time, the winner was Bonita Salad, Shitake Soup and The Godzilla Maki. Those were really special but that doesn’t mean that everything else wasn’t great. We loved everything and the taste of the Crispy Sashimi in my mouth was so dreamy. Loved it.

And when we thought we were done, the brought us a red velvet heart shaped cake with cream cheese icing inside it accompanied with a chocolate sauce to write something on the plate …. The cake was light and moist❤

Thank you @OishiiKW for the lovely lunch, we surely enjoyed our time❤

Hotel Calcutta Experience @The_Avenues

1

Last month, I was invited to try the newly opened Indian Contemporary  Cuisine called Hotel Calcutta located in The Avenues Mall (3rd Phase). We’ve all seen the signs and the colourful painting covering the place and wondered what could this be!

My husband & I went there around 7pm and I was dressed in Indian clothes (got them from my last trip to Mumbai), just getting in the mood I guess:)

The whole place looked as if you were having food in a hotel lobby … beautiful decoration, from tables to chairs to a trolly with bags and even the waitresses’ clothes looked magnificent and neat.

We were welcomed in a very hotel-like greeting and we were seated outdoors (our request). The menu was introduced to us and they gave us a little bit of explanations. Everything we’ve ordered turned out to be really good especially the Shrimp Coconut Curry and the Awadhi Biryani …. yum yum! Filled with Indian spices and aroma. I also loved the Mango Shrimp Salad, even though only 3 or 4 shrimps were presented, it was delicious. Also the Gulab Jamon Cheesecake was something, not to be missed!

Namaste Indian Breakfast

1

Last month, when I was on spring break, I wanted to try as many places as possible. One of them was Namaste, I wanted to try their Thali Breakfast which is all about the tray, small copper bowls and delicious taste.

The place is really small, but the decoration is beyond amazing. Loved all the Indian colours, drawings and furniture.

The menu is displayed on an iPad which makes it great to choose from when you don’t know all the Indian names of traditional dishes.

We tried 2 dishes, the Thali breakfast and Egg Dhal or something (I forgot the name but the picture is down below). Everything turned out to be perfect, delicious and the quantity was beyond fulfilling. Not to mention, it was reasonably priced.

I advise you to visit it on weekends and try their breakfast. I’m looking forward to try their lunch/dinner dishes.

Vol.1 Coffee Experience

1

On my trip to Kuwait City to try the various coffee house that opened there, I stopped at Vol.1 Coffee House where I tried their best seller Cereal Latte. Got to admit that it was really good and fills your tummy. A healthy choice for breakfast. Really loved it.

Then on another visit, I tried plain Americano and it was OH AM GEE. The aroma was mind-blowing and the taste was strong and vivid.

The cafe itself isn’t that big from the inside but it has an outdoor seating. Loved the seatings inside, simple yet elegant. It gets really crowded on weekdays around 9 am. I believe employees get down there to get their share of caffeine from them.

I’m going there for a 3rd visit to try other cups soon.

Caffeine Experience-Somu Kuwait

1

Everybody has or went to Somu in Souq Almubarikiya. Which is a new yard filled with chic and elegant cafes and restaurants not to mention small shops where you can enjoy shopping in them after finishing your meal or coffee.

I’ve tried Brothers Burger before so many times and I was always intrigues by the blue coffee shop next to it but I’m always full and can’t put a drip of coffee in my belly.

Last week, my friend and I decided to enjoy coffee and try some newly opened coffee shops in Sharq, which I’ll write about later on.

The winner was Caffeine for it served the best and strongest coffee ever. Now, I can’t really compare it to the others because we tried several kinds of coffee, but this one was the best from presentation, to taste, to customer care and quality.

We chose the Syphon coffee and it took more than 10 minutes to prepare. We waited in the seatings outdoors enjoying the lovely weather. And then came the best cup of coffee ever. Black as the night, strong as a warrior.

I loved it❤

Crepe De Licious Experience

1

I believe by now every body has heard or experienced this yummy place which I’ve visited more than once.

Husband recommended it after having the Pistachio Trio Crepe and he said it was really delicious. So I took Juju on New Year morning and ordered the Pistachio Choco crepe along with their Turkish Coffee in the chocolate cup.

I loved the Pistachio Choco Crepe, it was really delicious and yummy. I’ve also tried the Pistachio Trio and the Pistachio Strawberry Crepe. Last week, I’ve also tried the Kinder Molten cake which was delicious but really heavy.

Their dishes are really good. Their service gets slower when it’s crowded but it’s worth the wait.

Zwarah Lunch Experience @The_Avenues

1

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to dine at Zwarah restaurant located in Souk area in The Avenues. I’ve tried eating in it several times but every time we go, it’s full house.

We chose Friday afternoon and I took my daddy with me this time because he’s a traditional man and enjoys Kuwaiti food. I thought he’s going to enjoy this and he did. He’s still talking about the place.

We chose to be seated outdoors because it’s brighter and better for photography, not to mention Juju wanted to go to the fountain every now and then so I was able to keep an eye on her.

We started with Fatoush Salad and the main dishes started coming after a while. We ordered Maraq Bamya (Okra Stew) which comes with plain white rice, Murabyan (Shrimps with rice), Saffron rice & one hell of a Subaiti Fish. The fish came really big and the stuffing was beyond delicious. We all loved it and Dad enjoyed to the max. The Murabyan was really good and the Bamya Maraq was also great. We also ordered Chicken Laban Suwaykhat (grilled) which was beyond delicious. A must try.

For desserts we ordered the Dates Baqlawa (amazing) and the Date Caramel Cake with Ice cream, accompanies with Arabic Coffee.

Gathering Bistro Seasonal Breakfast Menu

5

A couple of weeks ago, I was invited to try the new seasonal menu for breakfast at The Gathering Bistro. Whether I’m invited or not, I’ve tried their food and breakfast several times and it’s always delicious and amazing. One thing remains the same, their service gets a bit slow when the place is crowded.

Now let’s talk about their new breakfast menu which will be there for a period of time. We were introduced to 5 dishes, 3 were egg dishes and 2 were pancakes. We loved them all, but the winners were the Dhal Egg dish (Indian Style with Chapati) and I loved the Quinoa Egg dish also. The pancakes were both amazing. My favourite was the Cinnamon one, ahmazing yum yum. The pistachio was also good.

Go and try their seasonal breakfast menu before they remove it. It’s worth the try.
