Noodle Factory is open again at the Avenues

The Noodle Factory Chinese restaurant, in Avenues, has reopened again. It was under renovations since the beginning of Ramadan, and I’m super glad it reopened again so soon.

I haven’t been there since the reopening, but I will definitely try to go there before 3eed inshalla. It’s located on the 1st floor, beside the old food court, and opposite Lacoste. Their phone # is 24954751

Jay-Z will be opening for U2 in their Australia & New Zealand tour

The infamous Mr. Beyonce, the Jay-Z him self, will be opening for U2 in their Australia and New Zealand tour.

Jay-Z will be opening for U2 in ALL their 360° tour dates in Australia and New Zealand. Wow. Now that would be a great concert to watch. Damn shame, Australia is half the world away, and I hate long flights.

FatBurger Kuwait is Double Delicious

Update post is here.

So I finally got to go to FatBurger, Kuwait. It’s located in Spoons food-mall on Fintas coastal road, just before Alia & Ghalia towers and before the Sakura\Wasabi\Ruby Tuesday food-mall. It’s open daily from 4 pm to 11.45 pm, no phone number yet.

We were 2, and we ordered 3 burgers. 2 single burgers, and one double burger; thin fries and chubby fries, soft drinks, and milkshakes.

First off, I got to say the place is a bit expensive. A single burger meal is like kd 3.25-3.5, and a double burger meal is like 4.25-4.6; with the extra toppings of cheese, bacon, or eggs. Our total bill was just over kd 13, so it turned out not to be that expensive after all.

Secondly, the food was amazing. The burgers are really light, both in oil saturation and spice-wise. Everything is just so light. I had a burger AND a half, and I still wasn’t full when I left. This is such a great feeling, after being used to getting stuffed to death with other burger places.

Thirdly, the place is big. It is quite big. But I feel that the number of tables could’ve been a lot more if they cleverly used the space.

Everyone was friendly enough. But the staff is still under trained. The cashier got our order mixed up, so we ended up paying more money to get our fries; because she didn’t punch in the meal code at the beginning. Also, when our chunky fries didn’t come, we had to get up again, go upstairs, and order AGAIN. That was annoying.

It should be noted that the menu is not yet complete. Half of the items are not available yet; like hotdogs, chili, chicken, and the vegi-burger. I was happy with my food, so I really didn’t care much.

I loved the place. The location is just perfect if you’re in chale, and want to have a good meal. The food is light and delicious, which will makes it easier to choose to eat there again.

One last funny thing. I was asking if FatBurger opens in the morning, like on fridays or weekends. The funny reply I got was that they are thinking of having a double shift in Ramadan, like one in the morning and one at night. I didn’t have the heart to correct the sweet lady. But it was still funny.

Anyways, FatBurger Kuwait is located in Spoons Food-Mall on Fintas’ coastal road. The is on the same side as Sakura and Wasabi. The building has a TGI Friday’s on the corner, so you can’t miss it. The place is exactly opposite Pizza Express. And it is just before Alia & Ghalia towers and Wasabi\Sakura, if you’re coming from the city. It is just passed them if you’re coming from Chale or Fahaheel.

Bon Appétit mon amis.

Where to feed your friends when they Visit Kuwait

We all have GCC and Arab friends that come visit us for a few days. We try to make them come during the wonderful months between November and March, in an attempt to deceive them about our devilishly hot weather.

If you’re like me, I don’t mind having them come visit during the summer months. I like the sea, enjoy the beach, and love water activities. Therefore, it goes without saying that if anyone visits me in the summer; be sure we’ll be spending most of out time in chale. Only problem is the unpredictable dusty weather. That would be the only thing stopping us from having a good beach\sea time. (Insert an sincere apology for my Saudi friends whom witnessed 3 full days AND nights of dust last week,, sorry girls, so so sorry).

Anyways. There are a few places, i.e. food stuffing places, that every visitor asks to go to:

  • We have to start the day with Breakfast at the Early Bird Cafe (have no clue why, even though I’m gonna head there after this post to have breakfast and Coffee).
  • Go for dinner at the ever so trendy Slider Station or the recently opened Open Flame Kitchen.
  • Enjoy the view at Marina Crescent and Marina Waves.
  • Have a late Lebanese lunch, after swimming, at Al-Mijana in Al-Koot Mall.
  • Have a very late night Milk shake and apple pie ala mode in Johnny RocketsManshar Mall.
  • Enjoy an early evening snack and dessert at Chocolate Macaroon in Jlai3a.
  • Now if your friends are shway classy or pertinacious, then you obviously have to take them for breakfast at Dean And Deloca in Avenues.
  • Enjoy a cup-a-joe at Starbucks Free Trade Zone, and just watch all the cool bikers with their cool bikes. What a sight.

Bon appetit, mes amis…
