I was first introduced to this brand by a friend at SmallQ8, then happened to find them at Qout Market so I bought some. They’re a local tea brand with a variety of tea flavours with some fancy branding. Each pack has 12 cups with sugar and a wooden stick for steering, they’re great for dessert hangouts or occasions. Prices range from KD 2.5 – KD 3.75.
I must admit, I live a pretty unhealthy lifestyle when it comes to food. I am nowhere near being fat thanks to the fast metabolism in my system but I probably eat at least double my daily calorie limit every day with juicy burgers and pizzas. Healthy food didn’t appeal to me because I always thought it didn’t taste good.
When DietCare called me up to ask if I was interested in having a meal every day for 5 days to try their new menu, I said okay but wasn’t sure how it would turn out. When the box arrived the first day, I opened it up and it looked like the food I eat regularly (chicken w/ rice). The taste was pretty good, best part was they had different meals every day.
What DietCare offers are personalized calorie controlled meals that go hand in hand with your goals, so it’s more like staying healthy and losing weight while still eating food that tastes good. Though I found their chicken a bit tasteless, everything else was good. On average a person loses 6 kg a month with their program. That’s almost 20 kg in just 3 months.
Since I don’t need to lose any weight I don’t see myself subscribing to any of their weight management plans but I liked the experience. If you need to cut some weight or just want to live a healthy lifestyle when it comes to food they’re a pretty good option. They’re call center number is 1 806 050.
During start up weekend they were offering Malabar Coffee, I never tried it previously and I call it super coffee because of its unique brewing technique. They use a slow filtering method but once the caffeine hits your system your eyes are wide open for a decent amount of hours. It was so strong I ended up rolling in bed for an hour. So I recommend having it before 3pm. To find where they currently have a booth you can check their [instagram account].
We’ve always seen those edible cups and mugs on the net for years and I’ve always wanted to try them. I found edible chocolate Arabian coffee cups at Kuwait Flour Mills so I bought a pack. They taste good but the chocolate will mix with your coffee. The cups start melting/leaking when you reach your 3rd or 4th coffee refill. They taste pretty good and they have a mint flavour.
The Kuwait Flour Mills branch I went to was in Salhiya complex located [here].
I’ve been asked a few times about where Pasticceria Di Pietro is located and if they deliver. They’re currently a home business but have plans to expand. To celebrate the launch of their delivery service they sent over a box of delicious cannolis, even better they stuffed them with chocolate knowing how crazy I am about chocolate.

An Italian friend that works in Kuwait has finally opened his own pastry shop. To learn how to make authentic Sicilian homemade sweets he actually went back to Sicily, Italy with his wife to take courses on making them. Their pastry shop is called Pasticceria Di Pietro and they had a booth at Qout Market.
For those that don’t know what Cannolis are or haven’t tried one, it’s a” hand-rolled, crispy golden pastry shell filled with homemade fluffy sweet ricotta cream, pistachio and chocolate bits with candied orange peel all made in-house from scratch.” I’m the type that likes a heavy dessert, but cannolis taste great even though they’re kinda light.
Their next stop will be at P2BK and I’ll definitely try to pass by and pick up some more cannolis, I don’t know if they have deliveries right now because they’re so busy getting ready for P2BK. To stay up to date with their events you can follow them on instagram [here].
Those of you who read my review on Zafran know how much I liked the food. They’ve launched their new winter menu just a few weeks ago and due to popular demand of their mixed grill dish they’ve finally bought it back to the menu along with some new dishes.
This is their Double Mushroom, it’s a combo of batter fried mushrooms with vegetables and cheese. I noticed how they have a lot of vegetable based dishes. They’ve put vegetarians in mind and it’s a good idea to go there if you’re one since they have so many veggie-based dishes.
This was without doubt my favourite new dish, I just might actually order this instead of butter chicken as a main course on my next visit. It’s a Prawn Coconut Curry with mustard, the mustard taste isn’t that strong and it doesn’t ruin the dish. The coconut prawn is normally eaten with a bowl of rice.
Before I go on to talk about their new menu I want to first talk about how beautiful the place has become. They’ve revamped the whole restaurant and it looks completely different. It simply feels fresher, as you finally get to a view of the sea which was closed previously. There’s all types of colorful furniture and chandeliers.
To not fill up after one main course I asked them to serve me smaller portions of everything so I could try more. This is their burrata cheese made from mozzarella and cream, only served once a week and it’s not on their menu. I know some that are in complete love with burrata. The creamy part is inside the burrata.
