ShawarmaShuwaikhShawarma Shuwaikh one of the best Shawarma restaurants in Kuwait. They began two years ago by opening the first branch in Shuwaikh Coop (that’s why it is called Shawarma Shuwaikh). However, days ago I saw there second branch officially opened in Bneid AlGar Area – Fahaheel Highway. Shawarma Shuwaikh Bneid AlGar branch open’s for 24hrs every day, so if you are hungry at 4am you can pass by to have a shawarma.

ShawarmaShuwaikhKuwaitThrough my visit inside the restaurant. I loved their interior and branding design theme. My best Shawarma in this place are Om AlRoman and Shawarma 1961. You can find their menu at Shawarma Shuwaikh website.

MrGreekRestaurantMr Greek Restaurant is one of the enduring success stories in the Canadian hospitality industry. It began as a small restaurant in a famous Greek Town of Toronto back in the 1980s. Since 1993 Mr Greek began to franchise and reached to 27 branches around the world. 

MrGreekLast Sunday, Mr Greek opened their second branch at The Gate Mall in Egaila. Back in 2014, Mr Greek opened their first branch at Marina Mall – Food Court. Their strategy is to expand and open more branches in Kuwait.

MrGreekKuwaitI got a special invitation to taste and review their food. For lunch I had Maria’s Dolmades, Greek Salad, Chicken Souvlako, Beef Gyro and Steak. I loved the food taste, presentation and ingredients. But through our lunch the staff are not trained in suffering the customers. Such as they should start with the appetizers, salads/soups then the menu course.

What I experienced is they placed all the dishes in the same time. Overall I loved the restaurant decorations and atmosphere. I rate the restaurant food 08/10, decoration 10/10 and location 07/10.

LittleRubysWeek before, I got a special invitation from Little Ruby’s Restaurant – The Avenues Branch to review their need dishes. I was welcomed by the manager and explain to me that new dishes is added to their menu.

I started with Vimto Mojito, french fries, mango chicken salad and mushroom toast.

LittleRubysBurgerFrom all the main course, I thought cheese burger would be a great choice for today’s lunch. Actually I don’t have any comments regarding their food taste. Except I think their food was not cooked probably on that day.

StrawberryCheeseCakeI ended with a delicious strawberry cheesecake with cup of green tea. Overall, their food and service were good and I rate Little Ruby’s 07/10.

The Seventies Restaurant

The SeventiesDays back I received different kind of dishes for lunch from Kuwait Cuisine –  The Seventies Restaurant.  I  got Chicken Machboos, Beef Machboos and Shrimps Rice. All of their meals come with set of box which could be useful for Diwaniya or gatherings.

I really not any comment of their food, except it’s only delicious and fresh. You can find more about them @theseventieskw Instagram account.

MadoRestaurantKuwaitThe famous Turkish restaurant opened last month their first branch in Kuwait – AlBida’a. I heard about it a lot and saw their branch in Dubai Mall. I never tasted their food. Last weekend, I had a chance to taste Mado Restaurant. Their food is ordinary and not that tasty. After lunch, I ordered tea and desserts. I can say Mado is an excellent place serve Turkish delights and tea. The waiters service is so cheap and they need to work more on customer service. Finally, compared to the other restaurants their prices is bit expensive.

Ridley’s Burger

December 19th, 2014 | Posted by Khalil in Kuwait Life | Others | Restaurant/Food | Reviews - (0 Comments)

Ridley'sBurgerM2 is a new food/restaurant zone opened months ago at Salhiya Complex. Every time I pass by M2 I see no seats available at Ridley’s Burger. However, days back I went to Ridley’s Burger for lunch and saw the place almost free. The waiter bought the iPads and I ordered original burger with french and pumpkin fries. After I had my lunch I can say it is the best burger I never had in life. Comments: delicious and juicy only.

Location: M2 – Salhiya Complex

BocciniPizzeriaLast March Boccini Pizzeria launched their first branch at Mahboula – Levels Complex. I attended the grand opening and you read our pervious post. Days ago, Boccini Pizzeria Restaurant opened a second branch at The Avenues Mall (Soku) the same place as Nestle Toll House before.

BocciniTheAvenuesI got an invitation from Boccini Pizzeria to review their new menu. However, last Wednesday I drove down to The Avenues Mall to review Boccini Pizzeria food for lunch. The branch manager welcomed us, gave us the menu and recommended to taste the new dishes such as Aranicini Aua Margeritta, Gamberi Crocanti, Mini Pizza Slider, Carne Alla Griglia (Ribeye), Tagliantelle Funghi, Fazzoletti Capriciosa, Insalata Di Cassa and Insalata Dello Cheff.

From all of the new dishes I liked the Mini Pizza Slider, Fazzoletti Capriciosa, Gamberi Crocanti and Insalata Dello Cheff. I founded the Mini Pizza Slider is the most delicious one. Overall, all dishes are great without any comments. I rate Boccini Italian Pizzeria food (09/10) and location (09/10).

TheNomadKitchenThe Nomad Kitchen is a new food truck concept by Gastronomica Group, the same group of Slider Station, b+f Burger Boutique, b+f Open Flame Kitchen and b+f Roadside Diner. The airstream food truck just launched last Monday at Gulf Run 2014 event.

I saw their new menu next to the truck and asked the cashier to suggest what to have for dinner. She suggested The 1973 Burger, Rib-eye Steak Shawarma, Commando Fries and Blackberry Lemonade.

As for the 1973 burger, unfortunately it was so oily starting with the bun and not cooked well. The Rib-eye Steak Shawarma, I was dying to taste, but unfortunately it turned out with dry beef, overly burned and disliked the taste.

All in all, Nomad Kitchen got very similar taste to b+f restaurants. Well I prefer if the concept could change from Slide Station and b+f Burger Boutique sauces and taste. I liked the concept of the airstream food truck, but I disliked their new menu and the way it’s delivered. I am one of b+f Burger Boutique lovers, but I think Nomad Kitchen broke the concept between the Slider Station and b+f Burger Boutique.

 

TheGatheringBistroI received an invitation from The Gathering Bistro Restaurant to attend their private event to taste their new menu. Last Monday, I arrived to The Gathering Bistro Restaurant in Salhiya. The event were organised, decorated and well managed.

LoadedWedgesThe co-founders of the restaurant welcomed us and directed us to our table. I got a set menu with the new dishes marked down, plus the a special rating card to rate / comment on each dish. For appetizers, I chose to Sesame Prawn Toast and Loaded Wedges. Sesame Prawn Toast is made of toast a prawn with some sesame added on the top. Loaded Wedges is potato wedges with some special sauce and cheese added on the top. I liked the Loaded Wedges the most. I recommend to add some chicken, beef or nuts at the top of the wedges which will taste much better.

T-BurgerFor the main dish, I chose to take Chicken Parmi and T-Burger. The Chicken Parmi is made of chicken with pesto pasta, sadly the pesto pasta sauce wasn’t that tasty. Well, the T-Burger is my master main dish. Made of toast bread, beef burger, cheese and sweet chilly sauce. It was amazing!.

ChocolateBrownieAfter five dishes, it is the time to have some dessert. I chose to have Chocolate Brownie Fudge and Roast & Toast. Both of them were delicious, but the Chocolate Brownie Fudge is the king here.

Finally, it was a wonderful night and great opportunity to taste The Gathering Bistro new menu. I rate The Gathering Bistro new menu 06/10 and food quality 08/10.
