I find it hard to believe someone has the heart to buy a $7,000 (Over 2,000 KD) burger when there are millions of kids starving out there. Fortunately the burger was auctioned and the money went to a charity fund related to breast cancer awareness. The previous record was $5,000 burger in Las Vegas.
I have been following Diner’s instagram account for a while now from decorating the place to trying different recipes. They’re almost done and will be opening their doors this week. Located downstairs at AlTejaria Tower. The place is small but cosy, the interior is all original wood which for me added value to the place.
The burger is as good as it looks, called The Havana. Contains a mix including Cuban spices which are pretty strong so it’s not for everyone, they offer 3 other burgers worth trying. The restaurant is also going to have chicken and turkey sandwiches but will be focused on the burgers.
I also tried some of their cookies, the one above is their Cadbury Cookies which is definitely worth trying. The cookie dough they use is unique because it’s their own mix, the dough tastes different and might need some time getting used to. There’s a big list of cookie recipes they have planned including coconut cookies.
The place is owned by 2 Kuwaiti guys and is not a franchise, which makes me want to support it more. They worked hard to supply quality beef and chicken so kudos to them. I’ll be passing by every now and then to try something new on their menu.
After years of research and a budget exceeding $384,000 researchers in the Netherlands have introduced the first lab grown burger (shown above). It’s grown from cow stem cells, looks like a grayish matter which there is no way on earth I’m trying. The patty however is then dyed to make it look like a regular meet.
Researchers have claimed it’s very hard to tell the difference in taste of the normal burger and lab grown one. I get the feeling fast food chains like Burger King and McDonald’s will be the first to adopt to lab grown beef to cut on costs. Five years from now I expect half the food we consume is lab grown.
I’ve heard about mustard a few times before being invited to review the place. They started out as a delivery service and became popular. Soon after that they opened their first store at 52 Degrees. The idea was inspired by 5 Guys burger place in the U.S. I think it’s the very first time I order a salad with my burger.
I started out with a chicken caesar salad while my friend had a rocket salad (a healthier option). Very rarely do I find a burger place that offers salads and I would like to see more of those because in most cases a burger isn’t enough to fill me up while I don’t always want fries on the side. The salad was good for 2, big portion.
For appetizers we had Mini Corn-Dogs, Chili Cheese Fries and Crunchy Shrimp shown above. Some people like restaurant to focus on burgers but I don’t see why having a variety is a bad idea, I like that they had a lot of things to try. Their sauces are heavy but tasty, the crunchy shrimp is recommended.
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»
I know some people who love Elevation but live a bit too far to be passing by frequently. Fortunately it has recently opened its biggest branch yet in Abu Halifa. I like the blue’ish interior design and the way they spread out the seats. Was hoping for something new in the menu but it hasn’t changed. For those who haven’t tried Half the Guilt Burger I recommend trying it on your next visit.

Even though the difference is huge, It was surprising how good the burger was. Didn’t taste like any other fast food chain, the meat had its unique taste. I noticed they had chicken rings on their menu but wasn’t available when I ordered. Might give it a try next time around.
What other way to start this event than with the best seller burger from McDonald. I had a good laugh after finishing editing the burger in the ad, just looked wrong. The difference is pretty clear, but I’d say this is actually one of the burgers with less differences than others. I did slightly change the colour of the burger so that it’d match the one on the advertisement.
