AlShamam is one of the most traditional restaurants in Kuwait and most people go there to eat fish. I tried eating fish, but I didn’t like it much because I don’t like eating fish in Kuwait except Zbaidi. I tried AlShamam multiple times, and I used to go to the one close to Gulf Bank. It was OK overall, nothing too impressive.
One time I went to the branch in the middle of Souq AlMubarekeya. The tables are outside close to the grocery market, and their food is impressive and much tastier. I always order the following, hummus, kebab, arayes, and tea at the end.
Everything is really tasty, and it is one of my very favorite restaurants in Kuwait.
