My Perfect Pepperoni Pizza from Pizza Hut

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

I ordered a Pepperoni pizza from Pizza Hut, with extra sauce. I asked extra sauce right on the pizza, and also in a small separate container just in case the chef forget to add the sauce to the pizza.

I always order my food with extra sauce, and many places charge me just for the extra spoon or two. The charge is reasonable if the ingredients were expensive or the sauce quantity was a lot.

But there are other instances when I don’t feel that the charge is justified, like with Pizza hut tonight. They charged me 600 fils for the extra marinara sauce, which is basically just tomato sauce, nothing fancy about it.

But damn me, Pizza Hut tied my tongue in knots. I was speechless when I saw this most mouthwatering Pepperoni pizza, with the oozing extra sauce and yummy melted cheese. I forgot all about my complaint, and started to develop a serious crush on the chef.

The way my pizza looked totally justifies the extra charge. I would never ever mind paying extra, if my pizza would look and taste this perfect. Plus, it does help to get your order 25 minutes early, and in super hot condition. It was the perfect order to tell you the truth.

Oh my my, the pizza was perfect. Pizza Hut, please deliver this exact pizza to me over and over again. Don’t change anything, and please send my biggest thanks to the chef over at your Mansouriya branch. He did good, real good.

My Review of Burger Fuel in JBR Walk

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Yesterday we tried out Burger Fuel on the Walk at Jumeirah Beach Residence, Dubai. It’s a New Zealand franchise, that started in 1995, and claims that it was the first gourmet burger in the world.

They offer beef, chicken, and vegi burgers. We had a couple of beef burgers, and they all come in one single huge size of a 1/3  pound each. What’s different about this place is the toppings. You get beetroot, avocado, parmesan, three kinds of cheeses, garlic aioli, and relish (which is not pickles, but rather something close to a tomato salsa).

Their side orders are a limited 3 kinds: fries, chicken stripes, and some pumpkin fried ball. And the only desert they have is ice cream.

We ordered a couple of burgers along with regular fries. One with cheddar, salad, and relish; and the other one with 2 cheeses, grilled onions, and salad.

Now for the taste. First of all, I have to say the burgers are huge. And they give you a small cartoon to fold into a burger holder, so you don’t mess things around. The burgers were nice and tasty, but not overly delicious. We have better burger places in Kuwait. However, for the price and location of this burger, I’m pretty sure I’ll be hitting the place again.

The fries were hot and thick, and tasted really good dunked in the relish and aioli. Burger Fuel also offered organic sodas, so we ordered two: the Lemonade and some weird fruit mix. They tastes a bit awful, like undrinkable to be frank. But again, I’m not into weird tastes, I’m a plain diet coke fan.

Burger Fuel’s service was amazing and super friendly. The location is magnificent, right in the middle of JBR. The burgers, though normal, are very enjoyable. Like I said, I would be going there again in the future. 2 burgers, 2 fries, 2 cokes, and 2 organic sodas costed us Dh 121, which is pretty good.

My review of “Eedam”, a very delicious Kuwaiti restaurant

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

Eedam is a home-delivery Kuwaiti food restaurant, located in Audailiya. I have heard a lot about this place for more than a year now, but never got the chance to try it before.

I heard a lot about their tasty Murabyan (Mawwash with shrimp), so I decided to give it a try. I also ordered Lamb Machboos. The Murabyan comes with Daqqous 9bbar and ma3boush chili, while the Machboos comes with Tomato Daqqous and chili too.

The Murabyan was amazing, it was really really good. The rice was cooked to perfection, and while I don’t like shrimp much, the whole dish was very delicious. The 9bbar was tangy and spicy, and complimented the Murabyan really well. This is a dish that I will be ordering repeatedly. It costed KD3.5, and is easily enough for 2 people. And since they’re using fresh shrimp, rather than dried ones, the dish is reasonably priced.

The Machboos, on the other hand, was a bit less than OK. The rice was nice, the meat was fresh, but it just tasted normal. I am a lover of Lamb Machboos and tomato daqqous, so I was a bit upset that both things were bland. The only good thing I can say about this dish is that it’s fresh. It costed KD2.5, and is also enough to feed 2 people.

I’ve also heard that Eedam’s yereesh is good, but since I haven’t tried it yet, I can’t really give an honest opinion.

Eedam is located in kazma Sport Club in Audailiya, with no table service, just home-delivery. Their phone #s are 22529948 & 22531316.

Pizza Hut’s Pizza\Pasta sensational offer

I’ve been reading about Pizza Hut’s latest Pizza\Paste and appetizer combo, specifically over at Bananaq8 and Frankom.

The above offer was more than tempting. So on Friday when I was getting ready for Chale with my friends, I ordered this KD 4.5 offer, and then added a coleslaw salad for just 1 KD.

I knew that none of my friends (if we’re in chale just for the night) were going to bother stocking up the kitchen with snack food, late night munching and the like. And I also knew this offer offered something for every taste. So I ordered up the box, and took it with me.

We have a small toaster oven, which reheated our Garlic Bread and Pizza to perfection. The pasta was heated up, but in the microwave, then sprinkled with frozen shredded mozzarella in the same said toaster oven.

All our food tasted fresh and amazing. I sure am glad I ordered it, it was a good offer for an even better price.

My dinner at Sha66a w Da22a in Mubarakiya

Like I said in my previous post, I went to Mubarakiya for dinner tonight. We were in the area, so we decided to eat there. I’ve only been there once before, like 7-8 years ago, and I had fond memories of the place back then.

Anyways, we wanted to go to Dalag Sehail, which is famous and really good. But we decided on another place called Sha66a w Da22a (the one on the right in the above pic), to get away from the chilly wind. All the restaurants in that area serve the same food, and they all smelled lovely.

We picked Sha66a w Da22a, because we wanted a good Koshari. We also ordered Iranian Kabab, Lamp chops, Mutabal, Garlic, 3arayes, fries, and some 7amsa thingi. We also had a couple of desserts and tea at the end, Muhalabiya and roz Bil laban.

The Koshari was very very good, especially with the chili and lemon sauces. The Kabab and chops were also very good, the 3arayes were as good as you get in proper restaurants, and the fries was fresh, and it tasted great when dipped in the garlic sauce. The only two things I didn’t like that much were the 7amsa and the muttabal. They were good, but all of the other foods tasted great, so they kind of fell short on taste in comparison.

Our total bill for all this food, with comes with two sides of Rocca, fresh onions and lemon was KD 10.250. And that’s with a couple of sodas and tea. The place definitely is worth your visit. It’s both cheap and tasty, and has a wide mix of various kinds of people.

I’m glad to say that it was a nice fun night.

Great Steak & Potato Co.

Yesterday, for the first time ever, I tried the Great Steak & Potato Co. for lunch. I was with a friend, and we both ordered steak sandwiches with cheese, onion and bell peppers. We also ordered a few side dishes like Jalapeno poppers and onion rings. Our order for 2 large meals and 2 side orders was KD 8.700, which I though was a bit too much for a couple of sandwiches.

The sandwiches were ok, I wouldn’t order them again. I might try chicken next time, but so far I’m not that impressed with this place to be honest. What struck me as totally shocking was our side orders.

  • The Jalapeno poppers were exactly three small pieces, costing one KD. That’s more than a $ a piece. I put in the ketchup packet for size comparison, to show you how small the pieces were.
  • The onion rings were also very disappointing. The rings were very small in diameter, tasted totally frozen\fried, and were also expensive. They too costed one KD.

Like I said, I wouldn’t order from this place again. The steak sandwich tasted very bland, not the meat nor the cheese has any distinctive taste. And for this bill price, I could order me four perfect cheese steak sandwiches from Bredz.
