Recently passed by Oishii to review their newly opened restaurant at Kuwait City. What I like about Oishii is the fact that it was a 100% Kuwaiti concept. it started out as a home delivery service If I’m not mistaken, the food was all home-made and they progressed to open a small restaurant. Moving a step ahead they’ve recently opened up next to Ubon which is where I went to review Oishii.
We started of with some Edamame and this Crunchy Salad, since I’m a fan of anything with a lot of sauce in general this salad was for me. We also had a Salmon and Avocado Salad available in the gallery at the bottom of the post. This salad had mixed lettuce, avocado and crisps. Also comes with crab but I asked them to have it removed. The salads are large so sharing is always an option.
When the Negi Miyaki arrived it seriously smelled like someone just served us a burger. To my surprise they even tasted like burgers, just in the form of sushi rolls. I guess they’d be nice if you were craving a burger at a Japanese restaurant. Since they are 8 pieces those are worth sharing as well, either that or have them as your main course because they’re pretty heavy on beef.
This is the first time I get Popcorn Shrimp with popcorn literally on the shrimp, they took the title to its core. I’m not sure what the sauce was but I think it came with honey sauce. An appetizer I would recommend if you order a sauce on the side. This appetizer is new and is exclusive to their Kuwait City branch, so are other dishes I’m reviewing like the Hammour Tepanyaki.
O Maki comes with shrimp tempura, carrot, avocado, sweet potato and a lot of sauce as you can tell. I normally like shrimp tempura sushi rolls, this one came with some chips to add more flavor which were crunchy but challenging, having to hold everything still using chopsticks.
The Hammour Tenpanyaki was undoubtedly my favorite dish, the fish is local and comes with mixed vegetables along with 3 different sauces. Before we knew it the fish was all gone, was cooked just the way I prefer it. Recommended for those who aren’t into sushi rolls but like fish. Overall a cosy place, cheerful staff and good food.
