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.
I haven’t been to Sultan Center’s restaurant almost since childhood but was invited to try out their new Egyptian menu that’s available every Thursday starting from 7 pm. I was surprised by the amount of Egyptian food I didn’t even know existed, always thought Om Ali dessert was Kuwaiti, but it was Egyptian after all.
During the Egyptian night they offer grilled corn, tormus, falafel eggs and a lot of Egyptian based appetizers. The buffet is all you can eat and they charge 7.5 KD entrance fee per person. There were so many things to pick from including Koshari, Macroni Bashamal, Monokhiya, Seeman, Kawaraa’. I put them some of them in a gallery below
These photos are just a small portion on what is being offered in the buffet, there’s a big salad and dessert section that also includes popular Egyptian dishes. The food was pretty good overall, I was really stuffed when I was done because the issue is you never know when to stop eating when it’s an open buffet.
I got to try a popular drink they have called Indian Date and it tasted super sweet, would recommend having it after you are finished eating or else you will feel pretty full. If I were to pick a favourite dish it would be the Macaroni one, it was heavy but the taste was worth it.
Sultan Center Restaurant (Jean’s Grill) also currently has a 50% discount on their breakfast which is also a buffet. I might come back during Ramadan to have futoor or suhoor there as I feel the food was also oriented towards things I would normally eat during Ramadan, according to the manager the whole place is fully booked during that month.

Jean’s Grill is located near the Waterfront on Gulf Road
Wokhay is a new Chinese dinning restaurant that opened up near Green Island (it’s before the entrance). I have to say the food I tried was better than excepted. We ate a big variety but I’ll focus on the food we enjoyed most on this post. Sultan Center card holders have a 30% discount for a limited time, which is a great discount in my opinion.
I have tried the Hot & Sour Soup more times than I can remember but have never liked it until now, this one tasted just right. It’s a popular Asian soup that comes with small chicken pieces, spring onion and crispy wanton strips. To open up your appetite I would recommend ordering this, and it’s not a light soup might I add.
Chicken Lettuce Wrap was also a really good appetizer, it’s kind of obvious you have to pour some chicken on a big lettuce wrap and crunch your way through it. The appetizer doesn’t come with a sauce so if you’re crazy about sauces like I am, I would recommend ordering a dynamite sauce on the side.
Apparently no Chinese restaurant is a Chinese restaurant by Kuwaiti standards if it doesn’t serve Dynamite Shrimp. Their dynamite shrimp tasted similar to the one at PF Changs except you get a bigger portion, I would say you get around an additional 50% of shrimp.
I posted this photo on my BBM where I broadcast new blog posts (add the PIN 7EF24ACC ) and I got so many asking me where I got the shawerma from. When I’m in Dajeej area I sometimes pass by Sultan Center branch there since they have good shawerma.
This time around the shawerma guy asked me if I wanted to try the Iranian bread shawerma and I said sure. They have a custom Iranian bread made to make a shawerma with and it tasted pretty good. I’m not sure if other Sultan Center branches offer this but Sultan Center Salmiya might.
A friend shared this photo on Facebook, spotted in UAE. Some stores are giving away necessities free of charge for those who can’t afford to pay for them during the holy month of Ramadan. Places like Sultan Center and Carrefour should be contacted to have something similar, I for one am willing to donate for this cause.
Spinneys, the kinda high-end grocery store is planning to open in Kuwait competing with Sultan Center and Carrefour. I’m going to prefer them over other stores if they adapt their Go Green services like offering reusable bags, smoke-free environment and installing recycle machines.[Source]
Spotted this at Sultan Center Salmiya. Since eating organic food is trending in Kuwait Sultan took advantage of that by opening a designated area. For those wondering, “organic food does not involve modern synthetic inputs such as synthetic pesticides and chemical fertilizers.” The small area actually has a big variety including organic cookies, something I should try very soon.
This isn’t the first time I’ve noticed a local brand making their own chocolate, the first time was I when spotted Sultan Center having their own chocolate bars, amongst a lot of other things. I didn’t like Sultan Center’s that much, Mr.Baker definitely tastes better. They come in two flavours, light milk chocolate and light crispy chocolate, costs 950 fils each.
