Al Kawakeb Ice Cream and Dessert Shop

Post by Mark

Al Kawakeb is an old ice cream and dessert shop in the city which you’ve probably passed by a number of times on your way to Vol.1 or Street (AlMakan) for dinner. The place has been open since the 50s and their display is filled with old nostalgic sweets.

BROWNBOOK have published a great article on the history of Al Kawakeb along with some great photos. I had no idea the shop was that old and I’m definitely going to appreciate it a lot more now that I’ve read this article. So check it out on their website [Here]

    Better hurry up and try them out before they are gone. There’s a big chance they will close down due to a significant increase in their rent. It would be a huge loss to see another cultural icon disappear from Kuwait and specifically the city.

    I grew up on this street during the seventies and eighties love to see this shop a childhood memory the building I lived is just next to this sweet shop I visit the shop every time I visit Kuwait
    Surprisingly the present generation don’t like these flavors .
