Wahed Falafel | The Best Falafel in Kuwait & My Everyday Breakfast

I started ordering Wahed Falafel almost everyday since I started managing one of the construction projects at the company. It all happened by mistake where I wanted to feed all the people at the project on daily basis at good prices. The first time I tried it, I saw that everyone from the labor to the managers were really happy. Since that day I started ordering whenever I have a site visit which is almost everyday. I saw that when people are happy they preform much better, and we got higher quality finishing. With time I learned that there is a way to make the falafel sandwich taste even better. I order a side of Tahina, and scoop Tahina on the sandwich after almost each bite. The falafel sandwich becomes even tastier. It became an addiction that everyone started doing the same thing.

One day I felt like to order falafel on Friday, so my wife told me to order Halloum Cheese Saj Sandwich. I tried it, and loved it. The quality of halloum is impressive. In my opinion halloum taste isn’t as consistent as the falafel, because of how long it has been grilled. I would say it is 90-95% consistent, but few times it didn’t taste as usual.

For a year I have been considering Wahed Falafel the best in Kuwait. The restaurant is super clean, the quality is very high, and their service is outstanding. I am a very loyal customer because of how they maintain such quality.

You can find Wahed Falafel on Talabat

Meat Pirate | The Best Smoked Ribs & Briskets in Kuwait

Today was really unbelievable and the experience was extremely impressive. What made my day is trying Meat Pirate and it did set a complete different standard in Kuwait. I have tried lots places in Kuwait including the most famous ones. None of them come close to Meat Pirate, because the quality of meat and the flavor is on a total different level. My cousin and I were at a construction site in Sabah Al-Ahmad Phase 2. The owner of the construction company ordered Meat Pirate the day before and he brought the following

  1. Short Ribs
  2. Whole Brisket
  3. Lamb Chops
  4. Whole Smoked Chicken
  5. Cheese Kofta
  6. French Fries
  7. Mexican Corn
  8. Mexican Rice

When the order arrived, it was very warm. It helped that we were very close to the restaurant, so I don’t know how the experience will be if the delivery location isn’t close to the restaurant. The packaging was really nice, and it was well organized. The way they arranged the food items with wrap and stickers made it very simple for us. There were salads, sauces, and plastic utensils in the boxes. The first impression was perfect, but the real surprise was when we opened the Short Ribs and Brisket. Even the whole smoked chicken was packed in an impressive way. Everything we opened looked great, and the moment we took a bite of the short ribs and brisket, it literally took me to a different world. The meat was as tender as a butter. The quality is really really high, and you really could tell that they use the highest quality ingredients in the market. I don’t know any restaurant that sells ribs and briskets that offers such quality. I heard that some restaurants when they first started they offered high quality meats, but once they became famous they started switching to cheap quality meats assuming people won’t realize. People always do realize when restaurants offer lower quality ingredients in order to book higher margins.

At Meat Pirate I enjoyed the short ribs the most. The whole brisket was amazing as well. The smoked chicken had an amazing flavor, a flavor that I have never tasted ever. The fries and Mexican corn went well with everything we ordered. Today was one of my happiest days ever, and I can’t wait to eat there again.

Go to Meat Pirate website to order, but make sure you order the day before as they always sell out of their menu items.

Phantasy Star Online 2 New Genesis on Xbox Series S | X

I can’t believe that I am playing on Xbox more than Playstation these days. The only reason I play Xbox is because PSO2 / PSO2 New Genesis. I am enjoying the game a lot even though it is so laggy. The game is much smoother than the previous one in terms of gameplay. PSO2 game is the type of game where I don’t have to think at all, I lay on the sofa and press the controller buttons without thinking. This is more of a game I play when I am really bored. I did pre-order Ratchet & Clank on PS5 but I still didn’t play it. I never played the previous ones, but I decided to give this one a shot. I really enjoy playing Playstation Exclusives, and until now Game Pass didn’t resonate with me. I enjoy playing the AAA games made by Playstation Studios.

My games wish list is the following

  • God of War Ragnarok
  • Horizon Forbidden West
  • Ghost of Tsushima 2
  • Spider Man 2
  • Red Dead Redemption 3

This is a very interesting generation and I can’t wait for the AAA releases this year.

 

Patty Melt | Secret Menu Item at Five Guys Kuwait

I guess I am always late to catch up with trends. After a while of having my friends telling me to try one of the secret menu items at Five Guys. I decided to give it a shot, even though I was a bit reluctant. The secret menu item is called Patty Melt, which is a patty and other toppings stuffed between a grilled cheese sandwich. I can’t believe that I enjoyed it much much than a regular burger. Even when it comes to delivery, it doesn’t get as soggy as a burger. Now Patty Melt is my favorite option at Five Guys, but make sure to order it in person to experience it right. It is OK when it comes to delivery, but everything in person tastes much better. At Deliveroo, they limit you to add 1 patty only, and can’t do double or triple patties. But when you go in person, you can do whatever you want, for me a single patty is enough.
