Spicy Pickle sandwich shop

[Click on images to enlarge and view as a slideshow]

Spicy Pickle is a new sandwich shop in Kuwait, based on an a Denver franchise. I’ve tried it a bunch of times during the past few months. Their sandwiches are tasty and has a special zest to them, they really do taste different from other sandwich shops. Maybe it’s the pickle in their name that adds the difference.

  • They use several kinds of breads like: Chibatta (country style or wholemeal), Focaccia, flatbread-Piadina (grilled or open top), or pizza.
  • They’ve got chicken, beef, multiple cheeses, turkey, vegi, mushroom, and all kinds of sandwiches.
  • Their condiments are unique like horseradish, chipotle, pesto, or sundried tomato mayo. Or greek dressing, honey-balsamic, thousand island, and honey mustard. Yummy.
  • Their green pickles is especially imported from the States, that’s why they taste so good.
  • And of course they’ve also got salads. Again, big size ones.
  • The sandwiches come with a size of small coleslaw, pickles, orange wedges, and\or pesto pasta.

Most of their sandwiches are big portioned, I usually can’t eat more than one-half of the bigger ones. Now the Piadina’s on the other hand, I could easily eat more than one; they’re so flat and thin. Spicy Pickle has some great pictures on their instagram, do check them out [link].

They’ve got two branches, one in Sharq on Ahmad Al-Jaber St. beside Dar Al-Awadi, and the other one in Mahboula behind Alia & Galia towers. Their phone number is 22442266. And they’re also on 6alabat [link] if you want to order from there.

Tacobell breakfast

Taco Bell breakfast. Do you think we’ll get it here? Would you like to have it?

I personally hope so and yes I would definitely want to eat this. This food looks really delicious and yummy. Just check this Taco Waffle, with that honey (or is that maple syrup) drizzled on it. Yummy!

McDonald’s Halloum Muffin is back

Mcdonald's halloum muffin 2

The Halloum Muffin is a sandwich that was introduced two and a half years, but was only available for a limited time. McDonald’s introduced two other halloum sandwiches since then, but on Chibata bread and not muffin. They both weren’t that tasty. I’m happy to see they’re brining back the original delicious one. That’s definitely my breakfast tomorrow.

Note: Last time I checked, breakfast in Kuwait is served till 11.30 not 11 am.

Five Guys now open in London too

Five Guys now open in LondonFive Guys London now open

It looks like Shake Shack wasn’t the only American burger joint to open in London this week.

Five Guys just opened its first ever UK store on America’s Independence Day, Thursday the 4th of July. And just like Shake Shack, Five Guys opened in Covent Garden, specifically on Long Acre, halfway between Leicester Sq. and the historic Covent Garden Piazza.

Five Guys opened this last Thursday, a day before Shake Shack did. Great timing.

Shake Shack now open in London

Shake Shack opens in London Covent Garden 2Shake Shack opens in London Covent Garden

One of my friends, who’s in London right now, informed me that Shake Shack just opened in London’s Covent Garden. It opened yesterday morning in  Covent Garden’s historic Piazza. People were lining up for more than an hour to place an order. I love Shake Shack, and I hated that they didn’t have branches in London or the west coast. Now at least  London is covered.

Though if I was on London, I would most probably be having burgers at Byron (mainly because we’re saturated with Shake Shacks in Kuwait, don’t crave it much when I’m traveling). Byron is a local English chain that opened in 2007, and serves some amazing burgers and fries. They have plenty of branches around central London including soho, Haymarket, and Covent Garden.

I’ve written about Byron before (and posted delicious pictures), you can check it out [here].
