Bershka

bershka

I just found out Bershka is opening in The Avenues on March 13th. I am not a big fan of Bershka, Nat is, but the interesting thing to note here is the opening date. If Bershka is opening on the 13th then I am guessing The Avenues is opening either before or on that same day.

update: Launch pushed back till the 18th.

Little Treats

Post by Mark

mini cupcakes

A friend of mine called me up yesterday after reading my post on Juju and recommended I try Little Treats if I was looking for the best cup cakes in Kuwait. I found out about Little Treats a week ago since someone emailed me the link to their website but I hadn’t tried them yet. According to my friend he ordered cupcakes from both Juju’s and Little Treats and he found Little Treats much better. Only problem is Little Treats don’t deliver. I will give them a call today and I think I will order a mixture of Oreo and Fudge It cupcakes, the combination sounds pretty cool. [Little Treats]

The Chili Dog Showdown

Post by Mark

Nathans or Hardees, which of the two has the better chili dog?

THE NATHANS CHILI DOG
Chili Hot Dog Nathans

THE HARDEES CHILI DOG
Chili Hot Dog Hardees

PRICE
Nathans Chili Dog: 750 fils
Hardees Chili Dog: 500 fils

SIZE
Both Hardees and Nathans have similarly sized hot dogs. The Nathans is just slightly bigger but not by that much.

LOOKS
Hardees looks visually more attractive and colorful while the Nathans hot dog looks dull and stale.

SPEED
Nathans hot dogs take longer then Hardees to prepare. I ordered my hot dog from Nathans Souk Sharq then I went to Hardees ordered a hot dog, I picked it up and went back to Nathans and my hot dog was still not ready. Also while waiting at Nathans I had to stand there listening to the manager making fun out of people who pass him. He’s an idiot.

TASTE
Nathans Chili Dog: The chili is terrible and the onions tasteless. The hot dogs meat itself is tastier then the Hardees meat but everything else tasted bad. I even ordered a plain hot dog with just ketchup and mustard and I don’t know what ketchup they use but its one of the worst tasting ones I have ever tried. A real mess seriously.

Hardees Chili Dog: Although the actual hot dog itself tastes a bit better at Nathans, the chili used at Hardees is much better and the mustard and onions are also better tasting. Even the bread feels softer and fresher.

CONCLUSION
I believe the Hardees Chili Dog is a better hot dog overall. Firstly it costs 50% less then the Nathans one Nathans hot dog costs 50% more. Its also visually more attractive, quicker to order and in general is a better tasting hot dog. I would not have a Nathans hot dog again, not unless they get better ingredients.

Termignoni Exhaust Pipes

Post by Mark

termignoni

Marzouq just posted about the great service he has been having with Tristar so I figured I would post about what happened with me. Last Saturday I passed by and ordered Termignoni carbon racing silencers for my motorbike and I was told I would receive them in 2 to 3 weeks. Yesterday I got a phone call telling me to pass by and pick up my silencers since they had arrived! I called the Tristar garage today morning so that tomorrow they can pass by and pick up my bike so they can install the silencers. Really great service. Also I found out that anyone can join their bike club not only people who purchased bikes from them, so if you are a biker and are looking for weekly activities give them a call.

Jujus Cupcake

Post by Mark

juju

Today I got a long rectangular box with a dozen cupcakes from a new place that opened up in Fanar called Juju’s Cupcake. All the cupcakes looked stunning and within seconds they disappeared. Everyone just wanted one. I don’t have any idea on the prices and although the box has a website address, jujuscupcake.com, the website is still not up. If you are interested though you can call them on 5722999.

Sexiest Starbucks in the world?

Post by Mark

I just got the following SMS from my sister who I’m guessing is inside Avenues:

Avenues has what is acclaimed to be the sexiest Starbucks in the world. Even the name and logo are in silver, not green. The walls are also dark gray granite.

Sounds cool. I am going to google now and see if there is anything like this anywhere else in the world. Avenues is still not open to the public.

Bird flu transmission and infection

Post by Mark

As most of you probably know by now there have been a number of Bird Flu cases reported in Kuwait. The big question of course is are we in any danger? How can we contract the Avian flu? Well I did some research and from what I understood the only way you can contract bird flu is through their saliva, nasal secretions, and feces. Meaning unless you are planning on making out with a bird you should be pretty safe. [Source]
