Bubba Gump Shrimp Co Opening Soon

Post by Mark

I passed by Bang & Olufsen at Symphony Mall tonight and on my way out I noticed a Bubba Gump Shrimp Company hoarding. The American seafood chain is inspired from the movie Forrest Gump and looks like the Symphony Mall location is going to be quite big. No clue on when exactly they’ll be opening.

    That’s so awesome! I don’t know if you have ever tried it Mark, but it’s actually pretty good! Too bad there is no alcohol here because they serve the Coronarita there!!!!

    Great!! It is tasty there in the states. I love their coconut shrimps. Hope the quality is the same

  3. OMG! OMG! OMG! You made my night Mark! <3 You!!!
    An American chain restaurant I actually LOVE !!!

    Here is where I totally begged online in August 2011:


    My wish came true! If only they had a liquor license.

    Allah ydeem al n3ma! Tried it about two months ago. NEVER AGAIN. I never ever got that sick in my life. I was practically a zombie from how sick I was!
    Since then, I never ate shrimps again, nor do I think that I will eat shrimps again.

  6. Another restaurant???? Isn’t their like 1 restaurant for every 5 people in Kuwait? Obesity shmobesity….. we’ve got free surgery, keep on eating! I want Chik-fil-A but since they are a Christian chain I guess they will never come here, mm In-n-out burger, Tommy’s or maybe some Mexican chains like El Torito or Baja Fresh? There is so much retail space to fill so expect more and more restaurants!

      ._. how is laziness the fault of fast food restaurants?

      • djelibaby says:

        how is drug addiction the fault of pushers?

        • Chris says:

          it’s not? I have been “pushed” to have drinks, smoke stuff, take shit.. never did it. Its your willpower, and how the hell are these two remotely related?

          Opening fast food restaurants is pushing people to eat 3 times a day, 7 days a week from them?

          Before such weird ass comments, look at Mark himself, a huge fan of BURGERS, yet he remains fit and healthy. meh

    Glad it is finally in the middle east! Only a matter of time before it comes to Dubai. Do we know who is bringing it? Wouldn’t suprise me if it is Al Shaya.

  12. FNS says:

    I love their way of service :) run forrest run (waiter won’t stop) & stop forrest stop (waiter stops and serves you) :D

    There are so many lesser known seafood restaurants around the country. I seem to find them more around Salmiya and Bidea area. If you come across one of those, its small, and around for years then whatever they serve must taste decent.

    “Shrimp is the fruit of the sea. You can barbecue it, boil it, broil it, bake it, sautee it. There’s, um, shrimp kebabs, shrimp creole, shrimp gumbo, pan fried, deep fried, stir fried. There’s pineapple shrimp and lemon shrimp, coconut shrimp, pepper shrimp, shrimp soup, shrimp stew, shrimp salad, shrimp and potatoes, shrimp burger, shrimp sandwich… That’s, that’s about it.”
