Last Wednesday I was invited to live station grilling night in Jumeirah Messilah beach hotel under name Chill & Grill night. Weather was amazing although it was little bit hummed but because it by the  sea and pool side there was a cool, amazing, refreshing breeze. The setup included live band playing  oriented music all the time, food, shisha and drinks. The first setup with the band was including the food  and by pool side. Food available was appetizers (taboulah, fatoush, hommos, mtabbal, baba ghanouj,  potato salad …), main dishes were different barbeque flavors (shrimp, lobster, sheshtawoq, steak, lamp,  fish, Hamour…) except beriany and packed potato. For me the best was the shrimp, lobster and steak. If  I will evaluate the food I would rate it to get 8/10.







The second setup was by sea side including only shisha and hot drinks. It has two types of chairs couches  and bean bag chairs, which were very comforting especially with the sea wave sounds.






Overall experience was good and would rate it to be 9.5/10. Food could be better but service, atmosphere and setup makes you condones the food taste.Chill and grill night happening every Wednesday from 7pm to 11 pm, worth a visit!

nutelllaaa crepe

How would you like this as a dessert after your futoor? Oh believe me I know, I mean look at all that nutella in there.. Well It’s pretty simple to make and I will be taking you step by step.

Firstly let’s get the ingredients, you will be needing:

1 cup of flour

2 eggs

1 cup of milk

2 teaspoons of white sugar

2 teaspoons of butter

2 teaspoons of vanilla

1/4 teaspoon of salt

Now for the Crepe filling, you will need 3 medium bananas sliced and as for the nutella…I’m just going to leave that for you to decide!


1. Mix the eggs, vanilla, sugar, salt and milk really good together in a bowl.

2. When you see bubbles add the flour and the melted butter! Now mix together until it looks creamy and beige.

3. Now you’d want to melt some butter on a pan and add the mixture and cook for a few minutes in low heat. Don’t forget to flip it to cook it on the other side!

4. Now it’s time for you to fill ‘em up!!

With frozen yogurt and burger joints trend slowing down, new shawerma places on the other hand are taking up in Kuwait but I’m not minding that since I’m a big fan of shawerma myself. I spotted the franshise German Doner Kebab opened the other night while passing by the so-called Restaurant Street in Salmiya. I overheard some positive reviews from friends about it but I didn’t get the chance to try it yet. I admit their shwerma pictures are mouth-watering but I’ve got to try it first to pass on my verdict. So Anyone tried it? What are their shawerma prices?

I hope they’re reasonable with their prices since many of the new shawerma places are asking 750fils+ for single shwerma, which in my humble opinion is too much.

Last night, we had the honor of being invited to Cocoa/Cabana to try out their menu in Abu Halifa. The concept behind the restaurant is one of a kind, and virtually never heard of before!


Everything in their menu has a mix of chocolate with their special sauce- even the burgers! You’ll find things on the menu like Caesar Salad with cookies, Nutella samboosak and other strange yet yummy mixtures!


The only downside, I would say, to the restaurant is that the food took way too long to arrive. It took about 2 hours for our burgers to arrive but when they finally did, it was evident what all the hype was about.


Overall, it was an amazing experience with amazing people and a beautiful atmosphere. There was a live saxophone player who entertained throughout the night, good food and enough chocolate to satisfy anyone’s cravings!

So, obviously I’m super hungry, and somehow stubbled upon this recipe that made me gain 45 kilos just looking at the photos. I am going straight to the grocery store right after work to purchase all these ingredients and will probably end up in the nearest hospital because I gave myself a heart attack.

Warning: This is not for the faint hearted.

How To Make a 15 Pound Snickers Bar

Like I said, you might become diabetic when attempting to devour this cake.

First off, you need a ton of chocolate and fatty everything on the face of the planet- or just everything in this photograph.


You’ll then melt all the chocolate, butterscotch, and add a couple spoonfuls of peanut butter, depending on your preference- I’m not judging you.


Should look a little like this


Then proceed to cover the bottom of a very large tub? with half of the outcome of your melted deliciousnessness, as tempting as it is to stick your fingers in it, save the rest for later!


Then add a couple Snickers bars to our concoction. Just around the edges- you’ll add more later.


You’ll stick all Snickers to the rest of your melted yumminess with Nutella. Just because there isn’t enough chocolate in the mix.


You will then melt the Kraft Caramels, or any other caramels of your choosing, Nestle Carnation Milk, and tons of butter-just because.


Something delicious and magical like this should appear..


Then add all the melted gooeyness into the middle of your Snickers pool and add some unsalted peanuts.


Then you add even more Snickers into the pool of goodness. I know, I know. These ones are smaller, they don’t count.


Then comes the nougat..which is basically consists of melted marshmallow puffies.


When all melted properly, it should look a little like this


I’m almost done, I promise! All you have to do now is create another small Snickers pool with the mini bites and add your freshly made nougat into the mix


Perfect! All that’s left is to add the other half of the base you originally made as a top layer and pop it into the freezer for 2 hours, or so!


This is what your final disaster should look like. You’re welcome, and I’m sorry if you end up in a hospital with your arteries clogged and weight 45 kilos more than when you began reading this.

I got invited over the weekend to Katsuya in Avenues. Honestly, I’m not a huge sushi fanatic, but YUM! The staff is incredibly friendly and enthusiastic, the environment is extremely cosy and the food is to die for. Katsuya Kuwait is the first location for Katsuya in the Middle East. It is the 8th branch to open worldwide, and the first one to open outside of the United States. There was also an exhibition for Philippe Starck, a French product and interior designer who dressed and decorated all the Katsuya’s around the world.

I was taken on a tour by Hussein Hussein, the manager, and probably one of the nicest people I have ever met. He led me to the exhibition and introduced me to both the art and the designer. Starck designs all the chairs, tables, and interior for this franchise. His art is very simple and very symmetrical. Everything he designs is perfectly proportional and elegant. The artist uses simple geometric shapes to make very beautiful art.


Before you walk into the restaurant, there are two HUGE rocks with the word “victory” engraved into them in Japanese. These rocks have 2 holes in them at the top where there would normally be flames coming out of them, but since Katsuya Kuwait is indoors, this is near impossible.


All the art work found around Katsuya is very oriental with a touch of modern day design. Every table has one unique chair, whether its by color or by shape, there are Geisha fans, Samurai swords, and happy cats everywhere! There are beautiful vibrant Geisha dresses hung in various locations throughout the venue. The walls are decked out in warrior helmets of different colors, and if you look closely you will find so many unexpected little things everywhere! There are tractors and guns placed in the most random places. This gave off such a playful vibe to the overall feel of the restaurant.


Anytime someone walks in to the venue, the waiter showing them to their table chants ” Irasshaimase” and everyone repeats after them in a melodic tone. By the end of the night we all joined in! I have to admit, that might have been my favorite part of the visit. Irasshaimase means welcome in Japanese.

One of the chef’s made us tropical juices that we thoroughly enjoyed.  All the contents of the juices were fresh and made right in front of us, even the syrups were made in house and had a life span of 3 days, then a new batch would be made. But trust me, they run out the same day, those drinks are absolute PERFECTION. I had the Katsuya Crush, which was made up of fresh-pressed mint and raspberry, topped with 7UP and a squeeze of lime, so simple but SO good! My hubby had the Burning Mandarin which is a spicy drink made up of hand crushed chili, fresh lemon and orange juice, with just a splash of cranberry. Sugar was placed all around the rim of the cup to break up the extreme spiciness, but he thoroughly enjoyed it. I would have probably died.


We probably ended up ordering the entire menu, some of which were recommended to us and others we ordered because we are complete fatties.

We started off with the Creamy Rock Shrimp which consisted of bite size shrimp tossed in creamy, spicy sauce. This tasted a lot like the famous Dynamite Shrimp from PF Changs but was a lot lighter. HIGHLY recommended.

The Salmon Sashimi with Ikura was made of salmon sashimi lightly rolled with Japanese onion chutney, topped with Ikura on a cucumber crisp. All the cucumbers are dried and cut fresh when the order is made. I loved that all the orders have larger portions that serve the purpose they were meant to. It’s mostly finger food that was made to be shared. YUM.


We also had the regular Salmon Sashimi, the hero of the night. The salmon was absolute perfection, that is all I can say.


The Mushroom Salad came and was almost too beautiful to eat. It was served with 4 different types of Japanese mushrooms over buttered lettuce. If you’re a mushroom lover, you’ll be in heaven.


The Mushroom Bop consisted of sizzling rice mixed with loads and loads of mushrooms and soy sauce.

Finally we ordered the Hollywood Rolls and the famous Katsuya Rolls. At this point I honestly couldn’t breathe but the food was too good to stop then. Hollywood rolls came with shrimp tempura, spicy kanikama, avocado and cucumber roll topped with spicy albacore. The Katsuya rolls had tuna, yellowtail, salmon, scallop, crab and avocado wrapped with rice, soy paper, and cucumber, served with wasabi ponzu on the side. There were so many different types of fish in those little rolls, but to my surprise it didn’t taste fishy at all.




Overall, it was an amazing experience and we will definitely be back again!

How amazing is BocaJunior and McDonalds for giving children aged 8-10 the chance to fly out to Brazil to attend the world cup? All you have to do is enroll your child in their one of a kind football club or through their website ( and your child is automatically eligible to win a free trip, with a guardian, of course.
