Trying Triangles Restaurant’s New Menu

By | August 21, 2016

A few days back I was invited by Triangle restaurant to try their new and different menu. I like triangle a lot and have seen pictures of their “new” items so needless to say I made sure to go with a good hungry appetite knowing exactly what I wanted to try. Lets say I was not disappointed at all and I’m warning you, dangerous pictures are awaiting you below.

Lucky for me, I arrived on a Saturday during a lull in the lunch service. It was between lunch and dinner and so I had the place to myself and took as many pictures as I’ve liked without bothering other diners. By the time I got to my main course though, the restaurant had filled up and there was a waiting list! So if my colourful pictures make you want to have your next meal over at Triangle, make sure to call before you go to make sure there are available tables. Waiting list I tell you!  Read more »

Just before I left for Australia I received the “rosiest” invitation to the opening of Kuwait’s newest Lebanese restaurant, Joori from Beirut. I wasn’t able to attend the opening, but I’ve watched the beauty of the restaurant via my fellow bloggers pictures of the place on instagram and I knew I wanted to try it as soon as I was back home, which I finally managed to do last weekend.

Lunch at Joe’s Cafe Kuwait

By | November 20, 2013

lajc-005

The long awaited Joe’s cafe finally arrived to the Prestige district of the Avenues mall and opened its doors to eager diners a week ago. Personally, I am not a fan of the Joe’s cafe in London given that I avoid restaurants with more than one table of Arabs like the plague when I travel but passing by the big floor-to-ceiling windows cafe in Kuwait I had to, just had to try it especially since everyone was making plans to go and dine there. Plus, it was a rainy day and rain reminds me of London and what better way to dine on a rainy day than in a cafe all the way from London? Read more »

Dinner At Atari Asian Tapas Restaurant

By | September 8, 2013

daaat-006

The first thing that comes to mind when you hear the word “Atari” is the Atari video games we used to play in the very early 80’s, therefore when  a new restaurant with the name Atari opened up a while back the name did catch my attention and made me want to dine there, and I finally had the chance to do so last Thursday.  Read more »

Dinner at Pintxos Restaurant

By | September 1, 2013

dapk-021

There, at the very end of the Seif strip of restaurant overlooking the Seif Palace, sits a restaurant space that now has the name Pintxos. Many restaurants have come and gone in this particular spot, an Italian one if I recall correctly, then another Japanese one. None of the restaurants that opened in that spot were successful even though the area is popular and the restaurant space is big with lovely outdoors seating. It wasn’t meant to be I suppose.

Scoop a Cone’s Ramadan Gelato Bonbobs

By | July 20, 2013

tsacgbb-006-1

It was a very hot summer afternoon in Ramadan when the door bell rang and a big ice box from Scoop a cone was delivered to our door. If we weren’t fasting we would have torn into it right away, for all you need in this scorching weather is ice cold gelato and water. Read more »

Breakfast at Véranda of Harvey Nichols in The Avenues

By | June 19, 2013

bavohn-006-1

Back again at one of my current favourite restaurants in Kuwait, but this time I’m trying it for breakfast for I’ve seen pictures and the pictures beckoned me over to the Grand Avenues and up the Elevator of Harvey Nichols. When I went it was a weekend morning, and I was there at 9 A.M. expecting to see an empty restaurant -and an empty Avenues- but to my surprise the Avenues was bustling with activity and Véranda had Read more »

Breakfast at C-Omar in the Avenues

By | June 16, 2013


Growing up in the 80’s meant watching a lot of Egyptian movies and TV serieses. Whenever I was watching and they had breakfast, I’d wish I was joining them at the table and eating from their breakfast, always plates laden with food and people sharing. Therefore when I knew that the modernised Egyptian-themed restaurant C-omar began to serve breakfast, I wanted to go and see what they had to offer.  Read more »

The best part of Thursday starts the moment you’re done with your work and you begin feeling all free to begin enjoying your weekend. I love having lunch outside on Thursdays and one of my favourite dining spots recently is in Véranda of Harvey Nichols. I cannot get enough of the place! keep going back for the great food, the calm yet bubbly atmosphere, and the excellent location overlooking all the action in the grand Avenues yet undisturbed by the crowds while you are dining.  Read more »

Weekend Lunch at Pizzetta

By | May 5, 2013

hlip-002-1

Since the good weather doesn’t seem to be going anywhere soon we decided to have a good lunch outdoors. We thought long and hard of the perfect place to enjoy the weather, the atmosphere, and most importantly the food and finally drove down to Spoons Complex to have lunch at Pizzetta. We were thinking of ordering our old and usual favourites, which include the Truffle and Fontina pizzetta I’m very fond of and was craving then. Read more »

Dinner at the Gathering Bistro

By | May 1, 2013

cdatg-001-1

Back in November, which now feels just like yesterday, I’ve been granted a sneak preview of the Gathering Bistro before it was officially open (post). Fast forward six months later and we finally had the chance to try it out for dinner and we had an excellent time! The weather was windy and cool, the tables filled out quickly, a nice soundtrack playing subtly in the background and at one point Dido’s white flag was -yes, I’m a fan- and most importantly, the food was really good! First we had to try the Cheesy potato bombs, they seemed smaller that what we remember but they were as tasty and excellent as a comfort food dish can be. Read more »

Afternoon Tea at Véranda of Harvey Nichols in the Avenues

By | April 29, 2013

ttavc-1

Ever since Véranda’s opening in March 2013 I’ve been there several times for different occasions and each and every time I’ve had a lip-smacking meal and an excellent time. The last time I was there was last Thursday with my friends. People were just out of work starting their weekend, the Avenues was filling up fast with people so we chose to go to Véranda: overlooking the weekend hubbub from the balcony but not bothered by the crowds.

Dinner at C-Omar in the Avenues

By | April 23, 2013

cospd-022-1

A while ago I’ve been walking in the Souk district of the Avenues mall when I saw a boarded up coming soon restaurant under the name of “C-Omar”. C is a word used in Egypt for mister and if I’m not mistaken there is a black and white movie by the name of C-Omar.  Therefore C-Omar was clearly a new Egyptian restaurant and judging by the modern looking design and my love for Egyptian food, I knew I will keep an eye out for its opening.  Read more »

Breakfast at Figs by Todd English in the Avenues

By | April 21, 2013

bafota-009-1

Ever since Figs by Todd’s English opened up in 360 Mall they served breakfast and judging by the pictures of diners I saw on instagram, it was a breakfast that I really wanted to try. However, I’m not much of a fan of Figs in 360, for one thing the seating area bears too much resemblance to the food court next door. I saw the pictures, got hungry, yet knew I’d never drag myself up from bed during the weekend to go to their 360 branch. Read more »

Dinner at Ribs and Rumps Steakhouse

Ribs and Rumps, an Australian steakhouse franchise and one of Kuwait’s newest eateries, hosted a blogger’s dinner a few nights ago. Ribs and Rumps have been in their soft opening phase for about a week or ten days now and when we arrived the outdoors seating area was busy with diners, the weather was sensational that night and perfect for dining outdoors and people watching.

Yesterday at 7 P.M. on the dot we made it to Cavalli Caffè and we were let in and led to our table at once. Read more »

By | April 6, 2013

I learned from the Avenues Instagram account that a new Turkish Restaurant, Emirgan Sütis, had opened and was serving breakfast last Thursday morning. I knew rightaway I wanted to try it. I want something new and delicious for breakfast and I have seen pictures of breakfast in Turkey online therefore, on Friday morning I woke up super early and headed for the Avenues souk district to have breakfast.

The Pastry Shop’s Strawberry Tarts

By | March 31, 2013

tpsmst-007One of the desserts I’m very fond of is the strawberry tart. I’ve loved it ever since I can remember, we used to buy it from a bakery we used to call The French Oven that’s long closed by now. I usually only eat the strawberries with the custard filling and discard of the bottom pie, it’s always too thick, dry, and filled with unnecessary Read more »

Since my blog’s name means ice cream its only natural that I love everything ice cream related. Therefore, when Scoop a Cone informed me they are officially opening up their new branch in Dasma area with a gelato serving drive-thru gelato with a seasonal new gelato flavour I knew I had to go and try it and I am happy I did!

Véranda’s entrance is through an elevator/staircase at the rightmost section of Harvey from the outside.  Read more »
