Entrecote Baguette Sandwich in Kuwait

The last few days, a lot of my friends are talking about two places. The first place is a burger restaurant called Thinnies which became really popular in Kuwait. I was really surprised to see a burger concept becoming that popular during these times where there are so many burger joints in the market. When I check Talabat or Deliveroo, I get lost from the amount of burger joints, so they should have something special to be that trendy in Kuwait. The second place is a place we all know, but never thought they will ever sell a sandwich. Le Relais de l’Entrecôte, which is the steak concept located at Salhiya and Murooj and now they are selling baguette sandwiches with the steak, fries, and their popular green sauce. A lot fo my friends told me to try it ASAP before they remove it from the menu, so I went to Salhiya right after they opened. They open at 7 PM, and I was there exactly at 7:05 PM. I couldn’t believe that there were so many cars ahead of me. It was really creative to turn a dine in steak restaurant to a to go sandwich place. I ordered a baguette sandwich with extra sauce on the side. The sandwich was good, but I felt the ratio was a bit off where it had slightly more bread that what it suppose to. The other thing was I wished I ordered the sauce on the side, so I add the sauce before I eat, because part of the bread became soggy by the time I arrived home. I highly recommend getting extra sauce because it made it much better. It was worth trying, but it isn’t something that I will be addicted to.

Very High Demand For Physical Silver Bars in Kuwait

This is a trending topic all across the world after where people are buying physical silver and storing it until the price increases multiple folds. I don’t know when will silver increase, but I believe it will eventually happen in the next few years. My main reason is the historical prices of silver where it was much more expensive back in 1980 than today. It used to be $120 an ounce during the peak back in 1980 and today it is around $27 an ounce. Considering all the inflation in the world, this is the only product that didn’t inflate. When I saw the historical prices, I decided to go to the market and shop around. I never bought gold or silver in Kuwait, so I had no clue where to buy it. When I was living in the US, I used to buy gold and silver from Apmex as collectables. It is my favorite website to buy gold and silver. I like their designs a lot, which was the main driver for me to collect them. I went to Kuwait Central Gold Market and I was going from one store to another to ask about the prices. I walked into one of the stores and there was an old man buying silver bars, so I asked him what is going on with silver. He held 1 Kilogram bar and he told me, this is much better than Game Stop stock, buy it and you won’t regret it. He convinced me to buy, so I bought few bars and some of my family members did the same. Each Kilogram was selling for 285-287 KD. The next day my brother went, and he barely found 1 Kilogram and they told him people bought the entire silver in Kuwait Central Gold Market. They told him other places might have it, but they don’t know any as of their knowledge. He bought what they claimed to be the last bar at 313 KD, and on the same day. Prices of silver jumped 11% reaching 8 years high, but dropped again 7% the next day. I went again today, and the same stores that told my brother they didn’t have any, they said they now have and willing to sell at 285-290 KD. I believe they were holding the stock because of the massive demand, but since prices dropped the following day, they let go of their stock. The interesting thing I saw today is that lots of people old and young are buying silver bars. The store owners were asking me what is going on with silver that made such amount of people to come and buy. I never expected the posts on Wall Street Bets to increase the demand of silver in Kuwait that much.

The Best Shawarma in Kuwait

I have been trying lots of shawarma places the past few weeks to find the best shawarma in Kuwait. It all started when I heard about Shawarma Shaker, but never got the chance to try it. Few weeks ago I decided to give it a shot, so I tried Shawarma Shaker and it was good. Then I started one place after the other and this is what I tried so far.

Shawarma Shaker

One Cut 

Laham Gram

Shawarma Mishref

Arabi

Bo Masoud Shawarma

Usta Shawarma

Honestly the winner for Meat Shawarma is very clear. Laham Gram is the Best Meat Shawarma in Kuwait and I consider it a WOW. Everyone who tried it said it is a WOW shawarma and the impressive part is that even my family and friends who never eat meat shawarma, loved it. The advantage of Laham Gram is that they offer delivery, even it cost a minimum of 10 KD for delivery it is so worth it.

When it comes to Chicken Shawarma, I didn’t find one that really stands out. The best ones were Shawarma Mishref and Arabi. I won’t consider them a WOW, but they very good shawarmas.

The trend of such shawarmas was started by Shaker Shawarma, the team behind it were very creative and a lot of people I know consider Shaker Shawarma the best so far. This list will be updated all the time, so it will keep changing once I find new shawarma places.

 

Laderach | My Favorite Chocolate These Days

I can’t believe I got so addicted to Laderach chocolate the past few weeks. I remember eating Laderach more than 10 years ago, but then I completely forgot about them. When I saw their sponsored ad on Instagram, I remembered the taste of their cornflakes chocolate, which I liked when I first tried it. I ordered half a kilo of Cornflakes at first, and I finished the entire thing in few days. Then I ordered another round of Cornflakes & Raspberry-Blackberry and since that day I can’t stop. I keep ordering whenever I finish what I have, but it is reaching a dangerous stage. I am gaining weight and over spending big time.

Where To Order iPhone 12 & iPhone 12 Pro in Kuwait

I am getting mixed feedback about iPhone 12. Some want to order it ASAP because their phones are very old and their batteries doesn’t last at all and some won’t upgrade until Apple redesign the iPhone. Having the same exact design as iPhone X isn’t exciting for some users, and they got bored of the design and specifically the notch. Now the question is where to pre-order iPhone 12 from in Kuwait.

The most common option I see is ordering it directly from Apple where they ship it directly to a forwarding address such as PostShipper which is tax free. This option is great because the charges aren’t much, but it lack warranty.

The other option is to buy from one of the local stores in Kuwait.

How To Report Electricity Outage in Kuwait Using MEW App

In the past it was a was complex to report electricity outage to ministry of electricity. I remember I used to call the Badala and ask for the emergency phone number. Today it is much easier where I reported an electricity outage and in less than an hour, electricity was back. The ministry of electricity in Kuwait released an app called MEW 152 and it is very simple to report an outage using this app. Try it out in case you need it.

The Best Gaming TVs for Playstation 5 (PS5) & Xbox Series X | S

A lot of people are asking about upgrading their TVs for Playstation 5 and Xbox Series X. The question is how to take advantage of the capabilities of the new consoles. The first thing to keep in mind that both PS5 and Xbox Series X support 4K and 120Hz. Sadly there aren’t many TV’s that support 120Hz right now and especially in Kuwait. HDR 10 is another component that is really important, so don’t miss it out.

If you have a TV that support 4K and 120Hz you must use HDMI 2.1 cable, which a lot of people didn’t know about. Not only that, you have to use the HDMI 2.1 slot in the TV as the other slots could be normal HDMI slots. My favorite TV’s has been always OLED TV’s but there aren’t many options in Kuwait. The best ranked gaming TV isn’t available in Kuwait at all, and I have no clue if they will ever bring it to the market or not. Now we will focus on the best gaming TV’s with 4K or 8K, 120Hz, and HDR10.

LG CX/GX 4K Line

LG CX/GX 77 inch 4K Smart OLED TV is ranked the best gaming TV in the market. This is the TV I really want to buy, and it will be available in Kuwait in 2-3 months. A lot of people are waiting for it to be released, and some already bought it from B&H or UAE. In terms of specs, it is one of the highest specs in the market. I will compare it with the new Sony A90J and decide which one to buy

Sony X900H 4K Line

This is the first line that Sony listed as Playstation 5 ready. This is a more affordable line than the Z8H which comes in 8K. For those who bought the X900H line, the update rolling right now will trigger the 4K 120Hz.

X900H : Xcite (55 inch, 75 inch, 85 inch)

X950H : Xcite (55 inch, 65 inch, 75 inch)

 

Sony Z8H 8K Line

The Z8H is available at Xcite right now, but it is a very expensive. I honestly wouldn’t buy 8K right now, so I will wait for prices to drop before switching to 8K TV’s. I think it will still take few years until it becomes a standard in the market. This is other line that Sony listed as Playstation 5 ready as well.

Xcite (75 inch, 85 inch)

 

Samsung Q70T, Q80T 4K Line

My friends have been buying TVs from this line. They love it so far, but there is a newer line that isn’t released in Kuwait yet which is the Q80T and Q90T. The Q80T & Q90T are recommended much more than the Q70T. I personally saw them playing on the Q70T and it was really great. If someone wants to buy it, I would say wait few more months until they release the Q80T/Q90T.

Best Electronics (65 inch, 75 inch)

Samsung Q90 8K Line

This line is similar to Sony Z8H 8K Line and both are very expensive, because they are 8K. I can find this line in multiple retailers in Kuwait, but I still wouldn’t buy it yet due to the price.

Xcite: (65 Inch, 75 Inch, 82 Inch)

Andalus: (65 Inch, 75 Inch, 82 Inch)

Best Electronics: (75 Inch, 82 Inch)

From all of these options, I am interested in LG 77 GX OLED TV. I believe that OLED TVs look the best when it comes to gaming, so I will monitor the upcoming TVs and update this list.

Pixel 5 Could Have Been Much Better

After switching to other Android phones, I realized that I already miss the pure Android experience. I decided to go back to Pixel once Google release Pixel 5. After the announcement of Pixel 5, I was disappointed by two things. The first thing is the processor Snapdragon 765G and I expected a better processor to be used. The other thing is the lack of storage. 128 GB is no longer enough for me right now. The amount of videos and pictures I receive via Whatsapp is much more than ever. It gets filled really fast, so I expect 256 GB at least. The ideal is 512 GB because I don’t have to worry about storage at all. I wish they offered 512 GB even at higher price tag, but that wasn’t the case. Now I am stuck and not sure what to buy for a next smartphone.

Dai | A Really Impressive Remake That is Worth Watching

A lot of people watched Dai (داي الشجاع) back in the late 90’s. I watched all of the episodes in Arabic and after episode 46 it suddenly stopped. Back then I thought it was just the Arabic version that stopped, but years later I found out that even the Japanese version stopped at 46. Back then I decided to read the manga and I read the entire story and I never thought that they will remake it all over again. I wish they make it in Arabic one more time, but I don’t think that will ever happen. I highly recommend watching the remake of Dai 2020, and this time I hope they continue it until the end.

Canada Dry Cream Soda in Kuwait

Last month I started to look for Canada Dry Cream Soda all over Kuwait. I luckily found it at a store called Hi and Buy on Deliveroo. Each can cost 350 Fils. I bought 24 cans so they delivered 1 full pack of 24 cans. The next day I brought some to my parents house, and my sister in law told me that they sell it at a place called Supplierskw and it cost 200 Fils per can. Yesterday I found lots of packs in AlQadsiya Co-op, so it seems it is available all over Kuwait once again.
