New Restaurant: BARBA.

Post by Mark

Barba is a new place that recently opened up in Shuwaikh by Amr Alrefai, the same guy behind Solo Pizza as well as his wife and brother. I love the space which was a warehouse that was converted into the restaurant so you have really high ceilings and lots of space which they’ve filled up with long communal tables. The concept of the restaurant is also interesting, mostly because of the different things going on throughout the week. To give you an idea of what I’m talking about, this is the current schedule they have:

Monday: Pasta Night with Susanna (walk-in)
Tuesday: Pizza Party (walk-in)
Wednesday: Pizza Party (walk-in)
Thursday: Guest Chefs (booking)
Friday: Smokey Fridays (BBQ)
Saturday: Currently closed but they’ll open for brunch soon
Sunday: Closed for private events

This Thursday for example their guest chef is Faisal AlNashmi, the guy behind Street and Table Otto so should be an interesting menu. This past Friday was BBQ Chicken night and this upcoming Friday supposedly will be filled with lots of grilled meat. So I really like the fact how there is always something taking place.

Currently Barba is in it’s soft launch phase, so their opening hours are from 7PM to 10PM. They’re located in Shuwaikh in the same building as ARABICA and Healthy Feast but in the back (take the side alleyway). Here is the location on [Google Maps] and you can also follow them on instagram @lets.barba

Post by Mark

tigertiger

Tiger Tiger the popular pan-asian pop-up restaurant is now available on Carriage. Previously, the only option if you wanted to have Tiger Tiger was find them at a weekend market, or wait for one of their pop-up events. Their menu on Carriage is also similar to their pop-up menu with just 3 appetizers and 3 main courses. You can check it out on the Carriage website [Here]

Arabica Arraya

Post by Mark

Arabica are opening their third location in Arraya and it’s going to be my favorite branch for two reasons. The first is because it’s going to be located across the street from my office and the second is because of how nice it looks. This location should be open by end of this week if everything goes according to plan. It’s located in the outdoor area between the parking lot and the main Arraya Complex.

Pre-Order Your Mangos

Post by Mark

Living in Kuwait there are two kinds of dealers every person needs, a Munchos dealer and a mango dealer. My mango guy is like the best mango dealer in Kuwait, been using him for over 6 years now and he really does import the best mangoes into Kuwait. Every year when Alphonso season is about to start he sends out a message to all his customers letting them know that he’s getting a shipment and to message him if they’re interested in a box. Well I got that message yesterday, his first shipment of mangos is arriving end of this month and pre-orders are now open. A box costs KD11 and includes a dozen mangos. So if you love mangos, you can contact him on whatsapp at 99880008 or on instagram @gourmetmangos.

Corny’s Smashed Lemonade & Corndogs

Post by Mark

Over the weekend I got to try Corny’s smashed lemonade and corndogs over at the baseball tournament and damn they were good. Corny’s Smashed Lemonade and Corny’s Corndogs both belong to Josh who also has Corny’s Shaved Ice. He just recently started serving lemonades and its by far my favorite lemonade in Kuwait.

Watching Josh make the lemonade is pretty entertaining since he has a cool contraption a friend of his created for him that smashes the fresh lemons in front of you before he adds ice, sugar and water to it. He serves the lemonade in a huge 32oz cup which means you’ll be drinking nearly a liter of lemonade. Even though that’s a lot I was still tempted to get a second serving after I was done with my first one. And then the corndog, it was so good that I was already planning to order my second serving while I was still midway through the first.

You can watch Josh make lemonade in the entertaining video above which he posted on instagram. He used to work in real estate hence the great sales presentation. Josh pops up at random events with his concepts so you can follow him on instagram to find out where he’ll be next if you want to try one of his products. His instagram accounts are:

Nomad Nights Pop-Up

Post by Mark

If you’re looking for something to do tonight and tomorrow night, then there is a pop-up you might be interested in going to. Nomad Kitchen teamed up with PLT and created a cool setup at a shipping warehouse in the middle of Kuwait City.

I passed by last night and it was pretty chill, just lots of food and good music by The Sound Social. There were basically three food stations, the main Nomad Kitchen truck that was serving different kinds of burgers and starters, a soft serve ice cream station and a coffee station. Price wise expect to pay around KD10 per person depending on how much food you’re planning to order.

The pop-up is on for the next two days so if you’re interested in passing by, check out the event page for more details and a map. [Link]

Yamamoto – A Japanese British Spanish Restaurant

Post by Mark

A friend showed me this instagram account yesterday for a local Japanese restaurant called Yamamoto and I found it the most bizarre thing ever. The restaurant is meant to serve Japanese street food but their menu from what I can tell is mostly composed of British Fish and Chips and Spanish Churros for dessert.

So weird. Check it out yourself @yamamoto_kw

Hala Hummus

Post by Mark

There’s a restaurant in Crystal Tower in Kuwait City called Hala Hummus which I keep passing by on my way to my gym (Core Fitness, now called XAthletic moved there recently). I haven’t tried Hala Hummus yet but I love the way the interior looks. For some reason, I think because of the way the ceiling is arched but the space looks like a restaurant you’d find in an underground subway. As you can guess from the name, they specialize in hummus dishes so if you want more info, check out their instagram @halahummus_kw
