I know many people that will go crazy over this, I personally haven’t tried them but friends love talking about them. They’re opening in Emad Tower, Kuwait City close to Arabica and EightySix. They haven’t specified when they’re opening exactly, but it looks pretty soon. You can follow their instagram account for updates [here].
In the States they have a McDollar menu in McDonald’s where everything you order is under $1. They’re now introducing the same concept in Kuwait with their McDinar menu (except 1 KD is ~three times the value of $1). They have a (breakfast) that’s for one dinar as well as a (meal) that’s for one dinar from what I’ve seen so far. This is actually great for students that are on a low budget, if they’re okay with eating from McDonald’s.
I had the chance to stay at a suite in The Regency to review the place and I must say it had reached all my expectations. I’ve always visited the Regency’s ballrooms but never the hotel, turns out I was missing out on a lot. My idea of this review is to go through what you can do in a day at The Regency.
The room I was in is called the diplomatic suite, it’s a pretty big 110 square meter suite with one bedroom and a living room. It wasn’t all about the classy furniture, there were to screens including a 42 inch screen that was connected to a 3D bluray player. Every sport channel you can think of was available.

First thing that crossed my mind while I was there was why caffè instead of café? Later found out Italians like to add an additional ‘f’ to Caffè . The place had a red/white theme, mostly red which should get you all hyped up when inside. Yesterday was the first day for the new breakfast menu which I got to try.
We started out with the popular breakfast dish Orientale Prima Colozine which had two really crispy fried eggs with some labneh and halloum. Also comes with cucumber, olives and bread (available on the gallery). I like the combination, definitely the lightest breakfast meal I’ve had in a long time. continue reading»
The Breakfast Club’s first branch was in Fintas, they were open until 3p.m everday serving breakfast. They’ve now expanded and opened a new branch in Kuwait City a few weeks back, so I passed by to review the place now that they also serve dinner and lunch. I like how they somehow managed to have pancakes as main courses with heavy sauces. continue reading»
A few days back I attended an event hosted by Diet Care about how important it is to reduce belly fat as well some general health tips. I thought it would be a good idea just to summarize what I learned from this session. Although he explained how cookies have a lot of calories, that won’t change how I see those delicious bites.
- Have Breakfast: It’s the most important meal of the day. It fuels you up and gets you ready for the day
- Move: Don’t stay inactive for hours, do anything that involves movement. It can be household work, cardio or whatever you find fit
- Eat Early: It’s recommended to have dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep, the best time is around 8pm
- Genetics Make a Difference: Although this is something beyond your control, studies have shown that some people burn faster than others because of their genes
- Smoking is Bad: Smoking and shisha (hooka) turned out to be the main cause of belly fat
- Sleep Well: It is best to sleep between 6 – 7 hours. I usually go for 8 – 9 hours which he mentioned wasn’t as good as 6 – 7 hours
- Relax: You must find ways to relax your body. Yoga is a good example, though I laugh every time I see someone doing it
- Water Up: Drink a lot of water though out the day. It will accelerate the fat burning process
I couldn’t exactly say it was an above the clouds experience, but somewhere high up there. My friend felt his childhood was missing an important piece having never visited Kuwait Towers before so we decided to have breakfast there. I surprised to find out guys aren’t allowed to the open buffet 7 days a week. Only woman, families can enter on weekends.
There was however a big caffeteria one floor under the open buffet area where we were allowed to sit. When we first arrived the place was empty, eventually westerners started coming in. The view is still as good. The windows are dirty which is saddening because you would have expected better maintenance of the place.
We ordered both the Middle Eastern and American breakfast which was pretty much the whole breakfast menu aside from the list of cocktails they offered. The American breakfast gets you some eggs cooked the way you like and some hot dogs. The Middle Eastern is a mix of everything that’s Arabian but mostly Lebanese.
We then got tickets to visit the upper circle where tourist normally go, the tickets are 2KD per person. There are two shops there, one for tourists and a small cafeteria(in gallery). According to the cafeteria guy this place is crowded on weekends. The ground still rotated like the old days but was extremely slow, not sure if it was this slow before.
If that were my plate I wouldn’t be sure whether to stare at it or eat it up like there’s no tomorrow. Photographer Henry Hargreaves is famously known for playing with his food. His latest collection has gone all colourful. He has a rainbow burger as well, just less indulging for some. I hope he didn’t just paint them and stick them together, that’s not edible.
