Rock House Sliders Opened in Los Angeles

I just got fresh news about Rock House Sliders “RHS” in Los Angeles from my friends in Kuwait. They said they are open now for business and they are doing pretty well. I heard about the opening back in October when LA Eater posted an article about a Kuwait based company wanting to teach LA how to do sliders. Honestly I thought that was a very bold statement considering the US make the best burgers in the world, but I really wish RHS the best of luck. The owners are really ambitious and we always support Kuwaiti concepts in and outside of Kuwait.

This is a picture back in January 2018 when the site was under construction. Sadly I was in the US, but I didn’t pass by RHS. I am going again this summer and I really can’t wait to go and try it out. I am really happy to see Kuwaitis expanding overseas and try to create global chains. Kuwaitis are really talented and now they are making a difference more than ever.

Good luck to the owners of Rock House Sliders, and the Ryukers team wish you the best of luck. We want you guys to succeed in California.

Hectare’s | The Most Luxury Factory in Kuwait

A while ago I wrote about Hectare’s chips, which set a total new standard in the local manufacturing industry. Last year Hectare’s were selling bag of chips in 150g, then they released 40g bags. Two weeks ago, they released a pack of 6, each containing 25g. When I saw the pack of 6, I realized that Hectare’s is one of most innovative companies in Kuwait when it comes to manufacturing. Everyone who visited the factory said one thing “this factory make you feel as if you are in the US or Europe.” Check their video of manufacturing the chips and you will be proud that Hectare’s is a Kuwaiti brand.

The Two Best Fried Chicken Sandwiches in Kuwait

I have always been a fan of fried chicken sandwiches, and the first one that I fell in love with and still live is KFC Zinger. Things have changed the past 5 years where we have more local premium fried chicken concepts in Kuwait that even international chains can’t compete with. My favorite restaurant is still KFC, but when I crave premium fried chicken sandwich, I have two sandwiches. The first one is Mr Bells from Ridly’s in Salhiya. This sandwich is extremely unique, because it has a piece of fried cheese. Once you bite the sandwich, you see the cheese coming out from the crispy layer. The bun of the sandwich is very soft, and the chicken is very tender. The sauce most of the time is perfect, but sometimes they miss the taste for some reason. Mr Bells taste much better once you eat it at their branch.

“I believe that Mr Bells is the best fried chicken sandwich in Kuwait.”

The first one right now Chunky from Eggcellent. Sadly this sandwich is available until 2pm, because Eggcellent is a breakfast concept. The amazing thing is that it is available all time after futoor in Ramadan. The chicken of the sandwich is very tender, and the crumbs is very crunchy. Give it a shot and let me know what you think in the comments below.

 

The second option is Beak Original. I usually order Beak from Deliveroo and the quality is really impressive. I usually hesitate to try a new restaurants, but Beak was totally worth it. Try it out and let me know what you think

Numou | Best Healthy Food Subscription in Kuwait

Numou is a new company that already set a total new standard in the food subscription industry in Kuwait. The other competitors are kind of competing on the same exact segment, because their quality and pricing is almost similar. Numou is really premium and the taste is really impressive. Numou is currently available on carriage, and it is a great way to test it out. Usually healthy meals tastes terrible, but Numou tastes great for healthy food.

 

The key differentiator with Numou is that the taste and quality keeps improving with time instead of just being consistent. I realized that you could tell the quality of a concept from the first impression when you see the branding of the concept. Numou has a really nice brand, and you could tell the effort that went into it. When I checked their instagram page, I was impressed with the quality of pictures. The level of care that went into this concept is abnormal. I believe that Numou is one of the concepts in Kuwait that has the potential to expand regionally, and replicating such a concept is extremely difficult.

The interesting thing about the new local concepts in Kuwait is that they are much better than the international concepts coming to Kuwait. Kuwaitis are setting a new standard in the food industry, and the trend will eventually continue. The idea of making Kuwait to be the food hub of the world is really doable.

Mado Dondurma | The Best Ice Cream in Kuwait

One of my favorite desserts has always been ice cream. I really like gelato, soft serve, and danderma ice cream. For a while I have been going to Mado in Bidaa to eat their famous danderma block served on a piece of cold marble. The quality of their ice cream is superb, but make sure you get the ice cream extremely cold to experience the perfect taste. Mado serves both food and dessert, but I usually go for dessert only, because their food is average.

Today while I was walking in the Avenues, I saw Mado Dondurma, which is the same concept, but focused on desserts only. I got the danderma block to go, and sat on a bench and I started eating it. It was extremely delicious and I am officially ranking it the best ice cream in Kuwait period. Try it out and let me know what you think.

Mint Restaurant | The Best Indian Restaurant in Orange County

Orange County is one of the nicest places on earth, and my two very favorite cities are Irvine and Newport Beach. I have always been looking for the best restaurants to write about, and for the past few years, I found that Mint Restaurant is the best authentic Indian restaurant in Orange County. The Chef used to work at my previous favorite Indian restaurant Tamirend of London, which sadly closed down few years ago. Mint is a family owned restaurant, and they treat all the customers like their own family. The waiters and waitresses are very friendly, happy, and helpful. The restaurant gets very busy on weekends, and you have to wait for 30-40 minutes to get a table, Thank God that they bought the restaurant next to them for expansion. I was told that the expansion will finish sometime in May if they get the permits and approvals on time. Now when it comes to food, they have a lot of tasty items on the menu. Some of the items are on a secret menu, which I found on Yelp. I was using Yelp as my main source to order from Mint, because I like to choose an item from the images I see. I am impressed that Mint sustained a 4.5/5 stars on Yelp for a very long time, and it isn’t usually the case for a lot of restaurants. Mint serves authentic food, and they use real Indian spices, and they also can make the food spicy if you ask them to do so. Here is the following list of my very favorite items on the menu.

Starters:-

  • Vegetable Samosa

Main Course:-

  • Chicken Tandoori
  • Chicken Biryani
  • Chicken Tikka Masala
  • Sikh Kebab
  • Qeema (Secret Menu)
  • Naan and Cheese Naan (Must eat them as soon as they get them from Tandour)

Desserts:-

  • Gulab Jamun with Vanilla Ice Cream

 

 

 

 

 

Just C Burgers | Kuwait’s Best BBQ Box

Every Thursday we go to the farm, and every time we go, we bring a BBQ box from a restaurant. We tried a lot of them, and until today the best one is Just C Burger BBQ Box. The burger is perfect, the bun is very soft, and the vegetables are always fresh. Their fried onions topping is very delicious and if you have it with their special sauce, it gets even better. The thing I like about Just C is that they never downgraded their quality, they kept the quality consistent for a very long time. Honestly I believe that they surpassed international franchises in terms of quality, and Just C can be an international chain if they decide to expand overseas. During the holiday on Feb, we had a big birthday at my home. I ordered from Carriage and specified a specific time, but they couldn’t make it on time. I was really disappointed at that time, so I called and complained. They were late for 2 hours, so I cancelled the order and got a refund, because the kids were waiting. I thought that their staff and management won’t care that I was disappointed, because this is how it is in Kuwait. In Kuwait, even when I am a very loyal customer for many years, usually they don’t care about pleasing their customers. Surprisingly, the manager called me and sent me 2 BBQ boxes as an apology. I was really surprised, because that never happened to me in Kuwait. I was their loyal customer for a very long time, and will continue to do so, because Just C really take care of their customers.

Thank You !

Hectare’s Chips in Kuwait

I don’t usually eat a lot of chips, but when I do buy, I always go for Terra chips. There is a new company now that sells very high quality chips and popcorn based in Kuwait. My new favorite chips are Hectare’s Sweet Chili & Red Pepper  and Sea Salt & Balsamic Vinegar . The brand looks European, and the packaging is very clean and simple, and they are trying to use the best ingredients possible. They are frying the chips of sunflower oil instead of the other cheaper oils such as palm oil. They are also using nitrogen to fill the bags to give the fresh smell and taste once you open the bag. Try Hectare’s out and let me know what you think.

Boccini | Best Tiramisu Cake in Kuwait

I finally found an amazing Tiramisu cake in Kuwait. Most of the times when you look for a cake, you try to find it at different bakeries, which was the case with me. I never expected to find the best tiramisu cake in an Italian restaurant in the avenues. Few days ago I was at the avenues, and I felt like to eat my very favorite nachos at Boccini restaurant, which is a must try by the way. I finished eating and the waiter suggested that I try their tiramisu, and I didn’t mind at all since I had room in my stomach. I tried it and it was perfect !!, then I got 2 more to go. When we tried the second day, it didn’t taste the same, so make sure to eat it in the restaurant, and you will go every time you crave an amazing cake.
