Snapchat users, be afraid

Snapchat social media video by CASEY NEISTAT

Some 200,000 embarrassing (and mostly nude) pictures hacked from Snapchat users will surface online tomorrow [via The DailyMail]. And they will most probably be tagged with the app’s usernames. So if any of you was using Snapchat to post pics of their privates, then you reputation is ruined.

But don’t worry to much about this. Snapchat confirms that the leak came from a 3rd party app (most probably snapsaved.com) and not from Snapchat servers. So if you haven’t used this 3rd party app, then you can at least rest assured a little. Either way, you shouldn’t be posting naked pics of you anywhere.

My day as a Tourist in Kuwait

Kuwait Towers

Fishing Pier Kuwait Sharq

It’s a long Eid holiday, so I thought of doing some touristy kind of stuff today.

  • I had a traditional Kuwait breakfast in Mubarakiya.
  • Went to the fishing pier on Gulf Rd.
  • And walked over to Kuwait Towers.

Burger Factory Nuzha

This isn’t a review of Burger Factory Nuzha, it’s just a general post.

My first visit was a smash hit. This place was going to be one of my top fav burger places in Kuwait, up there with Slider Station and Burger Boutique (and the Roma burger from Open Flame Kitchen). My second visit was not as good, because they messed up my takeout order. That’s why I’m just gonna write a few sentences, and leave you with pictures (all of which look orange, due to the restaurant’s lighting).

  • The burgers are cooked smash style.
  • I ordered the Bolt burger; which comes with cheese and a delicious mushroom sauce with tomatoes and lettuce that adds extra juiciness. And comes in a tender potato bun.
  • The meat was perfectly smashed into a thin patty, the sauce tasted amazing, and the bun was so tender. I loved loved loved this burger.
  • My mom ordered the Sliders trio. 3 sliders of their best selling burgers. I’m not sure of the combination, but one might have been a regular cheeseburger, one was definitely with bacon, and the 3rd I can’t even start to guess what it had. She loved them all. (She also loves Open Flame Kitchen, if that helps understand her taste in burgers).
  • I ordered the Chili cheese fries. I liked them better than Johnny Rockets’, because the meat tasted a lot less meaty. The first few bites were heaven, but then I got bored with the meat and started picking the plain fries out. So be warned if you’re like me and don’t like Chili fries much.
  • Mom ordered a Caesar salad. It was pretty average (like only acceptable if you wanted to have something healthy with your burger).
  • My sister and her kids all ordered the Bolt burger, i.e. the same one I had.
  • They also ordered regular fries, which came thick and sprinkled with spices.

We had 3 Bolt burgers, the sliders trio, 2 regular fries, 1 chili cheese fries, 1 salad, and 2-3 soft drinks. The total was less than Kd20. Burger Factory is located in Nuzha co-op, on the back corner beside NBK, where Little Caesar used to be.

Would I go there again? Yes I would, I loved the Bolt burger, and love Burger Factory’s location.It’s the closest fresh burger place near my home. Sadly, my 2nd visit was not as promising, because they basically forgot all the ingredients on my bolt except for the patty. Still, I’m not holding it against them, it was a to-go order and every place makes mistakes.

Johnny Rockets home delivery service

Johnny Rockets New Wagyu Burger Menu 7

Just an update on Johnny Rockets home delivery service [old post]. Their delivery phone number is now 1-844-144. Not a totally new number, has been around so for a while now (in addition to their Salmiya branch # of 25754040, which is physically open 24/7).

You might not know this, but they offer a 24/7 home delivery service direct from them (in addition to their 6alabat delivery). Orders start from just Kd 2.5, with a half kd delivery charge. And it’s avaialable 24/7 every single day day of the year (Ramadan excluded).

Their new delivery # is 1-844-144.

Bon appetit.

Cats on a leash? No, thank you!

 

Sounds about right. Yep, this is definitely not a dog being dragged on a leash.

I love cats (and dogs), that’s how I know this is totally and completely true. You can never ever make a cat go anywhere it doesn’t want to (which is most of the time). Dogs? Try stoping them from going to a wedding (or a funeral) with you.

Great deal on Wagyu burgers in Kuwait

Kobe Wagyu burger patties Kuwait

Update: These are not the original AusKobe patties, these are Sultan Center’s own brand. That explains why they don’t stock AusKobe anymore, and why this one is so much cheaper.

These wagyu beef burgers used to cost KD 1.950 a patty some 2-3 year ago. Up from KD 1.150-1.250 7-10 years prior. That meant it wasn’t worth buying those frozen patties, when you could get fresh ones at KD 2.5 a piece.

I’m glad to inform you that they’re back to a very reasonable and affordable price of 990 fils.

Here’s a [link] to Mark’s review of the burgers from 8 years ago. How time flies. Anyways, the review is still spot on. They are still the best burgers to have, if you don’t count getting fresh ones.

And honestly, haven’t we all been in that tight spot looking trying to find something gourmet-ish to cook at a minute’s notice? If you know what I mean, then these bad boys are for you. They go from freezer to pan in a snap. Mark cooks them on 5 minutes 4 times intervals. I personally prefer them on a 3 minutes 4 times rotation.

Either way, go snag a dozen of these to cook over the Eid holidays (Thank you sir, that’ll be KD 12). I recommend a pan not a BBQ grill, just because the BBQ is too hot for them and you want them juicy and moist. Plus, you get the added bonus of grilling opinions if you do it over a pan.

I found them at the freezers in The Sultan Center a few days ago.

If you would rather have this beef cooked for you at a restaurant, then you can’t go wrong with the “Roma” burger with Mushroom sauce at Open Flame Kitchen in 360° mall (KD 10-12 I’m not sure) or make your own burger at the Burger Boutique in Al-Rayya mall (maybe KD 5-ish?… But also make sure you pick the portabello mushroom sauce).

Bon appetit.
