Super/Foods is Super Good

Post by Mark

Super/Foods is a new whole foods bar that just opened up this past weekend in Shuwaikh. It belongs to a friend of mine and so I’ve know about the concept for sometime now and I’ve eagerly been waiting for it to finally open.

Whole foods is defined as foods that are unprocessed and unrefined, or processed and refined as little as possible and thats the main philosophy behind Super/Foods. It’s a vegetarian place with a lot of vegan, gluten free and raw options as well. Their menu is pretty straight forward, you have the create your own greek yogurt or chia pudding bowls, they’ve got savory toasts, sweet toasts, a number of salads and finally drinks that include smoothies and cold pressed juices. Oh they also have a ton of dessert bites as well as pre-bagged nuts and chips.

Their chef was based in the UK and had previously worked at Nama Foods and Tanya’s Cafe, both popular raw food restaurants in the UK so even though the place is new, there is a lot of experience in the kitchen. They’ve only been open for four days now and I’ve already been there twice so far and I’m hooked on two things, their avocado on toast as well as their beet-hummus on toast sandwiches. I’m also in love with their sparkling Blue Majik drink although I think it has to do more with my obsession over its color than its magical properties.

I’m also in love with the branding of the place as well as all their packaging and all the copy thats written on them. The feel of the place along with the good food has made Super/Foods one of my favorite restaurants at the moment alongside JOA, Habra and Table Otto. So many good places at the moment, I don’t remember the last time I was so excited over food like this.

Super/Foods is currently in their soft launch phase and are open from 10AM to 6PM. They’re located in the new Mayar Complex in Shuwaikh [Google Maps] and you can follow them on instagram @superfoodskw.

    How’s their pricing?

    Recently been facing the trouble of not wanting to eat out because everything and everyone and their mother seem to think we’re all millionaires with 500 kd budgets to eat out every month….

      You can check out the pricing on their menu which I’ve linked to at the end of the post. I thought sandwiches were well priced, and the chia pudding plus desserts. The only thing I thought was expensive was the super blue majik drink which costs a whopping KD2.650. But even in RPGs the best magical potions are usually the hardest to get and cost the most so I guess it’s expected.

    Greek yogurt is labnah. That is damn expensive. Big mac still cheaper. This is why people are fat.

    We finally have a place in Kuwait that serves Kombucha!!

    Mark, you really need to try Kombucha, it’s a bacteria that cleans out your system and it tastes like beer.

      Hi, just wanted to let you know Blue Zone also make their own Kombucha & you can find it in some Sultan Centres.

      • Yes, I did used to purchase it in Sultan, they used to actually sell one of my favorite brands (Kombucha Wonder Drink).

        After those videos surfaced though, I stopped going to Sultan altogether. A lot of people I know did too.
