Sponsored: Its Time To Get Addicted With Japanese Curry!

Post by Sponsor

We all know Japanese food is associated with sushi and a whole lot of seafood! But have you ever tried the Japanese curry? It is one of the most popular street food dishes in Japan and is commonly served in three main forms: curry rice and curry udon!

Meme’s Curry is the first Japanese curry house in Kuwait and has over 3 branches spread across the country where we all love food! With new places popping up everyday, we generally miss out on a few gems. Meme’s Curry is the place where the recognition and identification value is based on the Japanese Street Food Concept.

We take you to the urban-cool vibes of the Japanese where modern interior meets local food. Our fusion of providing a cozy atmosphere to dine in and inviting you to blend into our space is all what makes Meme’s Curry restaurant a place to remember. And did I even mention the food? If you are a fan of flavors, you need to visit the place!

Some of our most popular dishes are the Meme Monster with an add on of Shehab’s way, the Ramen and our special dish which is called the Meme’s special. The Meme’s Fries are worth digging in and so are the waffles! Our favorite sesame sauce is drizzled on top of our Chicken Stingers and Ebi Stingers. They pair up as the perfect appetizer to your main dish.

We have recently collaborated with Sayood to come up with a very creatively visualized concept for our Meme Curry fans.

Take advantage of the great weather Kuwait has for the next couple of months and enjoy our outdoor seating at Mall 30 in our Abu Hasaniya branch. The interactive and cozy vibe of The View Mall in Salmiya is very welcoming and Al-Rehab Complex in Hawally offers a very comfortable and laid back atmosphere. We have something unique to offer you in all our 3 branches and cant wait to expand in K-town and across the GCC with more Meme Curry outlets.

At Meme’s Curry, we constantly aim to improve and make our customers’ experience better each time they visit. We celebrated and rejoiced our 5th anniversary in October 2018. We are so happy and proud of the customer fan-base we have created over the years and would like to thank each and every loyal customer who visited our store and made us what we are today. Thank You!

We have 3 stores located in The View Mall in Salmiya, Al-Rehab Complex in Hawally and Mall 30 in Abu Hasaniya opening in January 2019.

You can even order online from Talabat Go, Zitaat and Cravez.

Sponsored: SRVME – A solution for all your maintenance needs

Post by Sponsor

SRVME is not your ordinary maintenance app. SRVME is planning to change how the service industry works.

SRVME, an on-demand service app is here to get rid of all of the inconveniences of maintenance work and make your life so much easier. Instead of asking your friends for an electrician that they know, waiting for their reply, then waiting to see if they even have the guy’s number saved, SRVME connects you – in less than 5 minutes! – to the most trusted service providers.

With SRVME, we can ensure that you will receive reliable, trustworthy and high-quality service as all of the SRVME service providers have undergone a thorough assessment process.

Apps promise a lot these days. We know. All kinds of services can be received at the click of a button. BUT, have you heard of something similar to this – SRVME’s price per hour approach.

Price per hour approach
Usually, maintenance businesses in Kuwait operate by charging a fee “per item”. So the more the items fixed, the bigger the invoice. At SRVME we found a solution to this. We charge all of our services at a set “price per hour”. Try it yourself and see the difference.

Let us give you an example, assume you do an annual maintenance for your A/C unit which costs you around 10-15 KD per unit, five units would cost you 50-75 KD. But, with the “price per hour” approach you would only pay per hour worked! Five units would take three hours to clean, leaving you with a cost of only 27KD.

Love it already? We’ve got more.

Trackable Handyman
You are able to track the service provider through the app. So, you can check his exact location (just like Uber)

Online payment
Flexibility in the payment method, you can pay by KNET, Credit Card or Cash. You can also save your Credit Card information.

Warranty Included
Something went wrong? Claim your warranty through the app within 30 days.

Rating Provided
Do you like the work of the technician? Give him 5 stars and he’ll be the first to get the notification for your next order.

Saved History
No need to keep hold of printed receipts, all your receipts are saved on the app.

How to use the app?

So, let’s say you wanted to fix your A/C or satellite, all you need to do is:

– Share your location
– Choose your required service
– Book a date and time at your convenience
– Select your preferred online payment method (cash/Knet/credit card)
– Confirm the service and we’ll be ready to serve you!

What services do we offer you?
A/C maintenance
Satellite maintenance
Plumbing services
Electrical maintenance
NEW! Interior painting
NEW! Carpentry
We will be adding additional services every month.

Sponsored: Cybersys Point Of Sale System

Post by Sponsor

Choosing a Point Of Sale (POS) system can seem like a big task and its one of the most important business decisions when starting out. With so many options and different costs for systems, it is hard to choose. Below is a list of 10 features every POS system should have.

1. Inventory Tracking: At a basic level a POS system needs to tell you how much you to have in stock so you know what you have at the store without counting every item. Alongside this feature, it should have a detailed log of what caused the inventory to change (Such as having a sale or receiving a PO).

2. Sales Tax Tracking (if it is compatible in your country): The only things that are certain in life is death and taxes. If your POS system cannot track tax; then it will be hard to pay your taxes each month. It should also be able to handle different types of taxes for items. Depending on the state certain items (such as food in different nations) are taxed differently than others.

3. Advanced Reporting: Reporting should be included to help you make good purchase decisions. The reporting needs to tell you which items are selling well and which aren’t. There should also be reports to see which categories and brands are selling well also.

4. Customer Tracking: Many businesses will find it beneficial to track the customers they get. This is very useful for email marketing, sending receipts, and just knowing who your best customers are.

5. Emailing and printing of receipts: Modern POS systems should be able to email receipts and print them on a receipt printer or even a letter sized printer. The more advanced ones should be able to print from any device such as a phone or tablet. Generating a receipt from a sale should be a fast process when you evaluate POS systems.

6. Credit card processing (including EMV/chip processing): In this day and age many customers prefer to pay by credit card or debit card. If your system cannot accept modern payment; your customers will be frustrated that they can’t pay with credit card.

7. Employee accounts and permissions: If your business takes on employees you will want to give them access to your system, but you will want to limit their ability to change pricing and view reporting. A modern system should provide the ability to set up custom permissions so the employee can only do what is allowed.

8. E-Commerce integration: Many customers love the convenience of shopping online. A good pos system will allow you to sell online. This is a great revenue stream for businesses and selling online should be included.

9. Purchase Orders: Generating purchase orders can save time when it comes to reordering product. A good POS system should make this easy based on stock level and supplier. This can save a business a lot of time to be able to generate these fast.

10. Cash Management: It is important to make sure your cash is correct in the register and the employees aren’t stealing from you. A good cash management system is important when choosing a POS system.

Picking a POS system and starting a business is hard enough. The list above should help you narrow down what you need to focus on when picking a system. Cybersys Point Of Sale has all of these features and is very affordable and easy to set up.

The interior of the restaurant was given a facelift and is now much more modern and trendier looking with a beautiful brick wall, concrete flooring, and an industrial looking ceiling.

The menu has also been updated but still incorporates all the Buffalos favorite dishes like our famous Buffalo wings, quesadillas, chili fries, steaks, pastas, burgers and sandwiches. We also added new dishes like commando fries, chicken Asian salad, kale Caesar salad, bowls, penne pasta with steak and Portobello mushrooms to name a few.

Buffalo’s delivers to most of Kuwait daily from 11am to 2:45am. You can order thru our call center # 1880012 or online thru apps like Talabat, Carriage, Zitaat, Jeebley and Craves.

The Salmiya branch has a special promotion running right now where Kids can eat for free every Friday and Saturday. Every Monday it’s also Wings Night in which we offer a buy one get one free on wings. Finally, we also have our daily lunch stampede menu which costs just KD2.950.

Sponsored: 100% Organic, Air-baked, and pure Good Stuff

Post by Sponsor

Let’s face it, we can’t help ourselves to when it comes to delicious French fries and juicy burgers, but do we really need the side of cholesterol to go with it? Good Stuff is Kuwait’s first fully air-baked restaurant that serves organic and natural foods such as wraps, bowls, salads, and burgers that’s all cooked through air-baking.

So what’s air-baking? It’s an innovative new cooking method that uses only heat and steam to cook the food. Air-baking uses zero frying, giving 60% less fat and calories when cooked (allowing food lovers to enjoy their favorite meals without the guilt!). You can now have your fries without having to worry about it being deep fried or drenched in high calories. By having a fully air-baked menu, Good Stuff is able to keep the nutritional value when cooking, without having to sacrifice taste. Ingredients used are all organic, natural, and fresh, giving customers the best quality. Good Stuff sticks to its core offering in giving people 100% taste, with 0% guilt.

Aside from serving wholesome organic meals, Good Stuff gives the public exactly what they need, a place to eat clean and live clean too. With the growing concerns over health and environmental issues throughout the country, Good Stuff holds a social responsibility for not just the community’s health and well-being, but for the environment’s health as well. Good Stuff is about being clean in the way that we eat and in the way that we live too. The store is designed using only raw and recycled materials, having everything as well be 100% plastic free. The brands mission is to be “simply green in everything”, aiming to provide the community with a healthier lifestyle overall. The lights and equipment are energy efficient, no paint is used on the walls to avoid the use of harmful chemicals, and biodegradable packaging is used to help keep the environment clean.

So do good, eat good, and come by to Good stuff to take a seat – because guess what, the chairs are recycled too.
