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.

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.

Gulf Cup 2014 started a week ago. Qualitynet Company created this TVC to motivate the Gulf Cup. Our national team (Kuwait National Team) played three matches. The last match was with Oman. The match ended with (5 Oman and 0 Kuwait). I’m sorry to see this poor effort from our team which kept us to lose the Gulf Cup 2014.

I don’t think their is any issues with our players. From analysing the match and listen to the players feedback. The main issue were with the couch and management. Hard Luck Kuwait!

BurgerDukkanWe got our set menu. As an appetiser, I got buffalo shrimps, Dukkan Burger, South West Chicken Burger, 3 Fries and Milkshakes.

Dukkan Burger is made of seasoned seed patty, melted kashkawal cheese, sumac tossed onions, parsley, Dukkan Sauce and soft roll. The South West Chicken Burger is made of buttermilk fried chicken, american cheddar, cattlemen’s sauce, pickle, shredded iceberg, onion rings and soft roll.
