Now, we’re not dealing with maybe the most hygenic of places (sorry to break it to you), nor the most fancy shmancy of places – but in terms of authenticity, it just doesn’t get better in Kuwait. Hands down. And it’s the PERFECT time of year – every winter a few close friends and I go out during the afternoon when the weather is slightly chilly, but there’s still enough sun to warm you up and eat brunch/ lunch.
This time we ordered the kabab – which is hard to even go into description here. Forget your local delivery spots and jam3iya pick-ups, I haven’t tasted better kabab other than when in Turkey. Un-real. Served with piping hot Iranian bread, fresh jarjeer and crisp onion wedges, it’s the ultimate guilty pleasure. We also ordered a side of koushari – a specialty of the restaurant next door. It comes with two mini tubs: one of squeezed lemon and the other of spicy sauce (which I douse all over). After our amazing lunch, we finished off with some delicious warm tea and enjoyed the lovely breeze and afternoon “hustle/ bustle” of our city.
