Melt Food is like Talabt except it doesn’t help you order food, rather it recommends places to go dine in. So if you feel like going out but not sure where, this website can come in handy. They don’t have a big directory right now but I like how clean and detailed the website is. The website has potential.
One random day, for the sake of it, I ordered half a dozen of cookie cups to try out. They were actually pretty expensive, 12 KD for half a dozen (2KD per cup). The cookie cups themselves are large and heavy, it will fill you up in no time, they’re like three cookies put together to make a cup.
Each cookie cup comes with a vanilla milk mini plastic jar. I filled it up then put it in the microwave, for the milk to be hot but not hot enough for the cookie to melt and start breaking down, the result was just right. I recommend trying it once as an experience, but too expensive to try again.
The store I ordered from was Melange
Someone was going to say it, other than being the food capital, it’s also the obesity capital. This quick documentary, powered by chocolateness and a few other brands talks about the quality of food in Kuwait as well as future plans to make Kuwait the food capital of the world.
I do agree, Kuwait is popular for it’s quality of food, I know people from all over the world that come to Kuwait for the sole reason of trying restaurants they’ve handpicked before coming. However, it can’t be the only focus to develop Kuwait, we have to look at the bigger picture.
Is this even new? I found this in a baqala in Jabriya somewhere and had a ‘wait what?’ moment. I guess Fico just figured out everyone fills up their Pufak with hot sauce so might as well make a spicy version. It’s actually pretty spicy but don’t think it’s available in Co-Ops, Sultan Center has it.
After I wrote about Bon Voyage, the restaurant that delivers airplane food to your door step, I got contacted by them to see if I was interested in trying their food, I was. I ordered two boxes, one with cream spaghetti and the other with beef lasagna. The food wasn’t bad, better that what I expected but the portions were way too much. A meal could fill up two people with no issues.
If you order their meal, you get a main course a salad, and dessert. The packaging didn’t look identical to that of the plate you get served on the airplane, but it was close, it was clear they tried really hard to make the packaging look nice.
Would I order from them again? I don’t know, I happen to like airplane food because it comes with a lot of childhood memories. It’s worth trying at least once, it did feel a bit weird when the food arrived, everyone was looking at the food with a big question mark.
To order call 9445 6777. Here’s a link to their menu: Bon Vayage Menu
I’m not sure why, when and where someone would want to order regular airplane food while not on an airplane but there’s now a restaurant in Kuwait that does just that. Mark from 248am tweeted about it yesterday and I thought it was funny. I haven’t personally tried them but if you can’t afford a trip abroad, you can at least have airplane food instead (I’m being sarcastic here).
You can reach them by calling 94 456 777 or check out their instagram account here.
I was waiting for Cane’s to open since I prefer chicken over beef so I passed by Cane’s first thing after arriving back to Kuwait. Their prices are pretty low, the chicken strips taste like, well, chicken. There was no flavour or anything special about their strips. I liked their special sauce and it works well with their french fries too. I guess it’s an okay place to go when I can’t think of any other place to go at The Avenues, or if I want to spend no more than 3 KD.
This is supposedly the biggest burger being served in Kuwait by Kusina Grill & Restaurant weighing 3.4 kilos in total. Someone sent it to me saying he’s on the search for the biggest burger in Kuwait, but I think it’s just someone from Kusina Grill trying to promote it. If anyone has spotted a bigger burger in Kuwait please email it to me. I personally wouldn’t even consider eating it, way too huge.
