Mezzo

January 28, 2014  |  30 days, Rants and Raves  |  No Comments

“Mezzo” is a contemporary fusion  restaurant. I was thrilled to go there for the soft opening to sample the fare and drinks. As someone who loves to eat and review food, I was totally looking forward to the evening and hence I starved myself the whole day. Of course they are in their soft opening stage which means a limited menu and lesser working hours.  Both the front house staff and the kitchen staff seem very friendly and open to your honest appraisal of the experience. I personally loved the decor and especially the one wall painting done by a Kuwaiti Artist. 

To start with we were served with hot Mushroom cappucino soup.. I am not a mushroom person, but I actually enjoyed it.

For my starters I ordered the Warm Goat Cheese and Walnut salad (fried goat cheese disc with frisee, barbeer and honey pommery mustard vinaigrette. Something I had not had before. Highly Recommended.

From all the drinks that were mentioned on the menu, I opted for the Lemongrass Ginger Mojito, again I would say by far the best Mojito I have tasted in a long time.

4-IMG_7362 After the chitter chatter and having finished with various small plates, we decided to order our medium plate (main course dinner). I have never tried this dish before, however the name and the aroma of it on the table beside me, helped me with my decision to order Chicken Katsu Curry Risotto. (creamy risotto with Katsu curry and crumb fried chicken garnished with pickled onion and fried leek)7-IMG_7367And my not so adventurous son had a Brioche Burger with Beetroot Dijonnaise (burger with onion jam, white cheddar cheese and light batter fried onion rings on butter glazed brioche bun served with homemade fries. (the only difference my son had it with just the patty and cheese, talk about keeping it simple 🙁5-IMG_7363Some of the other main dishes offered were – Hoisin Sriracha Tenderloin, Mezzo Rigatoni Pasta, Truffled Wild Mushroom Pappardelle Pasta and Lime & Pomegranate Spaghetti Bolognese, so I am definitely going back some time soon try them out.

For desserts, the Chef served us the specials of the day which was Banana Pudding with Ice cream topped with caramel sauce and nuts. It was a tad to sweet for my taste, but the other guests quite liked it , so I guess I was the odd one out.

SLICE

September 3, 2013  |  Rants and Raves  |  No Comments

Always on the lookout for something special, I spied a restaurant in an odd location in Kuwait City and stopped to take a look.  SLICE – run by two Kuwaiti entrepreneurs serves Greek gyros and German döners. The restaurant is a bit small with a limited menu but it more than makes up with its quality.

Open from 6:00pm to 10:30pm, Slice offers Chicken or döner Beef in a wrap or pita bread with the normal array of vegetables. Their success lies with their range of sauces, from Tzatziki to Tahina which elevate the meal to a new level.

I tired both the bread- the pita was good but the wrap with Tahina, Chilli and Garlic for nothing short of amazing.

Each bread (includes the whole sandwich) costs 1.750 KD – the place is not fancy but it should be on your list of places to try.

Location – Kuwait City, Between the Liberation Tower and Baitek

I happen to chance upon this place…. I am sure, pictures say a thousand words.. All in all, a very capacious, well lit, peaceful and relaxed atmosphere.

“Someday” serves you with an assortment of sandwiches, snacks, salads, breakfast menu, hot and cold beverages and of course my favorite part of the meal “desserts”… in a wide range..

Baking Tray

Definitely a Must order again…

To start off with loved my Ginger Chicken Puff – Yes! I normally would do not eat chunks of ginger or order something with ginger floating in it but thanks to my friend who insisted I must try this. Well, can’t be more happy with it, I could feel it, chew it and yet I was Ok with it … so something you ought to try!! The size may not seem so big at a glance but trust me it is stuffed.. with amazing seasoned and flavoured chicken and ginger of course (which is good for your digestion too 🙂 )

Btw I quite like they packing but i guess the hunger took over and i forgot to take the picture of the actual Puff but you will have to just trust me on it .

Accompanied by a fresh orange juice as always, well mostly.. and then I tried they Nutty Organic Chocolate brownie… topped with lots and lots of nuts… very soft  (actually much softer than a brownie is supposed to be) but as long as I savored it – and it made me go NUTS About u (the brownie).

 Nope it’s not over yet, I still had the Roasted Chicken Quiche – It’s not everywhere you get to order a Quiche and esp a nice one, normally i would have a Mushroom and Chicken but it’s always fun to contemplate something different.

Check out he kool looking box.

And Voila… I can say I had a Hearty Meal!
