HomeSlicePizzaThis suburb I entered by mistake during my walk in London – Soho. However, at that time it was rainy and windy. So I passed through a small pizza restaurant called Home Slice Pizza to have some lunch.

HSPizzaLondonThey only serve Pizza. I chose to have a slice of margarita and veg pizza. The pizza taste’s so delicious, juicy and I loved the pizza sauce. If are in London on day, please visit HS Pizza and give me your feedback.[Map]

Discover Liverpool

April 22nd, 2014 | Posted by Khalil in Information | Personal | Reviews | Travel | World Life - (0 Comments)

LiverpoolLiverpool is a city were you can relax and enjoy the fresh air. I visited Liverpool when I was a kid. I drove down towards to Liverpool during my recent trip to London. Stayed three days re-discovering the city and meet up my friends.

I took London Euston Virgin Trains towards Liverpool Lime Street. The duration took 2hrs and 15 minutes only. I stayed at Liverpool Indigo Hotel. The hotel is quite good and near to the dock, city centre, shopping area and rail station.

LiverpoolDockOf course, when I arrived to the city, I walked down to the Albert Dock. Lots of things changed, new buildings and of course the museums are still the same. I enjoyed walking down the Albert Dock with my Starbucks Coffee and headset on listening to some music. 

AnfieldThis is the first time visiting Anfield (Liverpool FC Stadium). It was Thursday morning and just the day before Liverpool VS Man. City match. The stadium were full with guests. I waited for hours to get my turn to have a mini tour inside the stadium. The tour includes visit to the field and museum only. 

LiverpoolShoppingLiverpool City Centre is small compared to London. If you are looking somewhere to shop and eat. Liverpool ONE is a shopping, residential and leisure complex. Luxury brands, Cinema, Restaurants and Cafes are all available inside Liverpool ONE. 

I really enjoyed Liverpool specially walking around and breathing-in the fresh air. I think three days is enough to stay in Liverpool to  wonderful area the city.

StarbucksLondonI think there are special moments during the day to pick-up your coffee. During my last trip to London, I usually pick-up my Starbucks Coffee before I have lunch. I love to drink Starbucks Coffee in London because it got a unique taste and cheap price compared to Kuwait. In London Mayfair you can find Starbucks almost in every street.

WataniOnline

I posted last year, NBK Need To Invest More On Mobile Banking & WOL. Last week The National Bank of Kuwait (NBK) launched the new look of Watani Online services. I liked the interface, colours, design, fonts and layout. I logged-in to WOL using the mobile web browser. What I found is the website is not capable to use on your mobile. As we use our smart-phone in a daily base. I recommend to NBK to convert WOL to mobile version website.

KuwaitAirwaysFirstClassKuwait Airways posted previously on Instagram some snapshots of how Kuwait Airways new first and business class looks like. The image above of the First Class looks like. Compared to the other airlines, the first class should be segmented in separated seats and this looks like as business class zone. So I dislike it.

KuwaitAirwaysBusinessClassMoreover, the image above is the business class of Kuwait Airways. This even looks like as KLM Premium Economy. How could the business class seats don’t have extra facilities added on. The new flights will be prepared by end of this year.

HotelMissoniCucinaI received a special invitation from Hotel Missoni Management to review Cucina Restaurant new pizza menu. Today afternoon, after I done from work, I went to Hotel Missoni to dine-in for lunch and taste their new pizza. The hotel management welcomed us and explained some of the new changes in the restaurant.

Cucina Restaurant is now changed with new theme and decorations. As well the restaurant is expanded now with extra seats and tables. There is also a private lounge were business/private lunch can be reserved. Personally, I liked the new blue theme and Missoni texture added everywhere.

CucinaRestaurantWe were given a set menu for our lunch. As a start-up I had pomegranate mojito drink. I really liked the drink and haven’t had the same mojito in my life. For appetizer, I had Parmigiana di Melanzane (Eggplant Parmigiana with orange infuse tomato) and Tagliolini Verdi Gratinati (Homemade tagliolini with beef bacon, asparagus and parmesan cheese). I haven’t tried the Parmigiana di Melanzane as I’m allergic eggplants. As for Tagliolini Verdi Gratinati is wonderful and also I ate two dishes and can stop of having  more. What I liked with the Tagliolini is the cheese sauce and way it’s cooked. This would be my favorite dish.

CucinaPizzaMoving to the main course. I chose to try Margherita Pizza (Tomato sauce, Mozzarella and Fresh Basil) and Ortolana Pizza (Tomato sauce, Mozzarella and Grilled Vegetables). The pizza made with fresh ingredients came specially from Italy, made specially with thin dough, natural, healthy and tasty.

Ending with the desserts, I had Pizza Dolce (Pizza topped with Cucina special chocolate sauce, crushed hazelnuts and icing sugar). The dessert is also fabulous with great pizza dough, tasty chocolate sauce and well presented. The chocolate sauce taste similar to Nutella, but made specially by Cucina Restaurant.

Overall, I enjoyed the Hotel Missoni atmosphere and had a great time to review one of the best Italian restaurants in Kuwait. I highly recommend you to try their pizza, appetizers and beverages.

I rate Cucina Restaurant Pizza (10/10), Dessert (09/10), Appetizers (08/10), Beverages (10/10) and Restaurant Atmosphere (10/10).
