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.

Munai Studio | The Best Photography Experience in Kuwait

Well this is something completely new to me as I am a person who doesn’t enjoy the process of portrait photography at all. The usual process is where I go to a photography studio and take few pictures ASAP. Choose the one I like and leave as soon as I can. Usually I feel like I am freezing up and I can’t be myself during the photo shoot. The smile is forced, and the pose is forced as well. Usually my pictures doesn’t seem to be natural at all. At Munai Studio my idea of photography has been completely changed. The founder of Munai Studio is Munai AlTaqi and she created a total new experience in the industry. The process start by her introducing herself, and a brief about her education, job, and passion. She ask the same to the customer, and she really care about knowing the name of the customer. During the conversation, she calls the customer by his/her name to break the ice. She was very friendly and humble, and she talks to you as if she knows you for a long time. It will be as if you are talking to a family member or a close friend. Before she starts the shoot, she will ask you to connect to the bluetooth speaker and playing your favorite song. Choosing your favorite song will reflect your real personality during the photoshoot. She will be talking to you about random things and while you answer, she will be taking photos. The results were outstanding and natural, and I was really happy with the result. Even though my relatives have a photography studios, I would still go to Munai Studio over them. She created an unforgettable experience with an outstanding results.

KFC | Why Did The Best Chicken Nuggets in Kuwait Disappear

What happened to the best chicken nuggets in Kuwait. KFC chicken nuggets was my very favorite for a very long time. Sadly more than a year ago, it suddenly got discontinued and their only option right now is their popcorn chicken. Don’t get me wrong, I like KFC popcorn chicken, but it doesn’t substitute KFC chicken nuggets. McDonald’s chicken nuggets does compete with KFC, but I still prefer KFC chicken nuggets much more. I really hope they offer it again one day, because I really miss it. I don’t know other places which offers good chicken nuggets besides KFC and McDonald’s.

Woodex | The Best Closets, Wardrobes, & Cabinets in Kuwait

There are lots of carpentries that sells closets & wardrobes in Kuwait. A lot of them have one problem in common, which is design. It seems that one place create a horrible design and the rest copy it. There isn’t any research and development, which is very sad. Some closets and wardrobe designs are from ages ago with no innovation. I don’t know why this has been the case in Kuwait for a very long time. The very nice designs are usually from Europe and they are extremely expensive. The average person can never afford these closets. Woodex has managed to create impressive designs close to the ones from Europe at a much lower price. When it comes to quality, Woodex is known for extremely high quality and durability. Hossein the owner of Woodex is a very talented person. He is really passionate about woodworks, and he really cares that his products last for a very long time. My family have been dealing with Woodex for the past 15 years, and until today they always praise their quality. Sometimes we buy closets from other places which are cheaper, but we regret it few years later.

If you are thinking of buying a very high quality closets and very nice design at a very good price. Definitely buy from Woodex and you won’t regret it. Check their instagram page and website and let me know what you think. If you like to see things in person, you can visit their showroom in front of Abyat in Shuwaikh. I really believe that Woodex is one of the best carpentries in Kuwait.

 

DHL EasyShop | Is No Longer The Best Mail Forwarding Service in Kuwait

I finally found the perfect mail forwarding service in Kuwait. I have been using Posta Plus Mybox and Postshipper, but they both slowed down a lot due to the pandemic. I was trying to find something faster than both of them before the corona pandemic. Mybox became less efficient where I don’t see a package notifications so I call them and give them the tracking number after 3-4 weeks from delivery. They tell me the package is already in Kuwait and will be delivered in the next few days. The problem I never saw the notification, and I understand they are going through hard time because of the amount of orders. Postshipper is taking about 7 days to prepare the shipment, but I get it very fast once it is shipped. I was told to use DHL Easyshop, but I never got the chance to try it, because I was comfortable with Postshipper. After trying it for the first time, I realized this isn’t the speed that I am used to. It is abnormally fast and I haven’t seen a service that fast ever. Even MyUS isn’t as fast, so it immediately became my favorite mail forwarding service in Kuwait. Also there is an option for consolidation, but storage is free for 2 weeks only. Unlike Postshipper that gives 60-90 days of free storage. I am switching to DHL EasyShop for the urgent shipments. Postshipper for less important shipments and packages I want to consolidate over 60-90 days. Mybox for very large packages that are even less important. 

Update: DHL EasyShop isn’t that great anymore, they take forever to list the package once it is delivered. Sometimes it takes more than a week to show the package in my box. Postshipper is once again the best mail forwarding service in Kuwait.

Poppylicious Bakery | The Best Cake in Kuwait for 2020

I finally found my favorite cake this year. The cake is a Poppy Seed cake from Poppylicious Bakery, and I can’t describe how delicious the cake is. Poppy Seed cake doesn’t sound very delicious, but once you have the first bite, you will be addicted. Poppylicious Bakery really perfected the cake where it is so soft and light. The first time I saw the cake, I said I will only have one small slice. I had the first slice, then asked for a bigger one. I finished the bigger slice then I asked for another one. I really couldn’t stop eating one after the other until it was mental struggle for me to stop. Because the cake is so light, it is easy to eat many slices. I choose the one with iced sugar as a topping, and the one with white chocolate isn’t really my taste. I highly recommend trying the Poppy Seed cake from Poppylicious Bakery, and trust me it is perfect for family and friends gatherings.

Back Combined Co (BCC) | The Best Contractor & Construction Company in Kuwait

Walid Shaaban founded Back Combined Co (BCC) after working for more than a decade at First United Company. Few years after founding the company, Back Combined became of the most respected companies in Kuwait. Their projects are all over Kuwait, and they build complex and unique projects that very few contractors can build in Kuwait. The are a lot of reasons that Back Combined is rising so fast in the industry. The main reason is that they work with the client as a team not as an enemy. I realized lots of client contractor relationship becomes more of enemies than a team or partners. Also Walid Shaaban is the type of person who never run away from any issue, he will fix it and will find a solution regardless how challenging the issue is. He has a reputation in the market for sticking to his word even if he is at a disadvantage. There is also one great thing about Back Combined where they seek continuous improvement and they never want to stay at the same level. Lastly they constantly research new materials and find ways for customers to save money, and they are willing to take the risk by trying new materials that makes the building process for efficient.

Mamas & Papas | The Best Baby Brand in Kuwait

I have been buying lots of baby products the past 5 months and the one that really stands out is Mamas & Papas. They are literally the best baby brand in Kuwait. To be the best brand requires a lot of things such as product quality, customer service, quality of delivery, and % of returned products. When it comes to quality, their products are superior. I started buying things I don’t need because of their amazing design and quality. I think I became a stroller collector, because so far I bought 3 and thinking of the 4th one but it is sold out already. Customer service is really great, they are really responsive and knowledgable about their product line. I bought the products from the avenues store and rose is the lady who really took care of me and my wife. She is excellent at following up and when I was interested in a product and it was out of stock. She calls me when it is back in stock because she knows that I am interested in buying that product. Their delivery is really amazing, they deliver very fast. If they are late, they send me an email telling me that there will be a delay. Also the percentage of damaged products is none so far and they always deliver all the products without missing a single package. I bought products from the other baby stores in Kuwait and I really regret that decision. One big store delivered a piece of furniture with missing parts. I talked to them and they sent me the same exact parts that i have not the missing one. I am going back and forth with them and after 2.5 months, they told me that they will refund me via credit card. Until now I didn’t get back the refunded money. They require so much follow up that I am fed up already. Their delivery is also horrible, they mark something delivered and I get an email saying the product was delivered, but I never received anything. 2-3 days later, I get the product. I was told this the trick by the delivery company where they trick the company they signed with.

The management of Al Tayer Group is really impressive, and because of that I would buy everything from them even if it cost much more than their competitors.

Nissan Patrol is The Best Car Deal I Have Seen in 2020

There are tons of offers at Kuwait car dealerships because of the Corona virus. I have seen offers from Maserati, Lincoln, Kia, Volkswagen, and Nissan. The best deals in my opinion were from Kia, Maserati, and Nissan. The best overall deal is Nissan Patrol which was offered at 14,999 KD. It comes in leather and it has front and back sensors. It comes with 5 years warranty and 4 years of service of 50,000 Kilometers. The reason I liked Nissan Patrol is because the car is one of the popular cars in Kuwait. It is a durable car and it holds value. Let me attach the details of the car I saw.

I was told that the deal is for June, but might be extended to July. I think the deal is very attractive, and it is a good time to buy a car if you need one.
