Dough Cafe and Bakery is one of the new additions in Kuwait where new restaurants are sprouting like mushrooms especially along the shoreline. This newly opened restaurant is located in the Miral Mall in Mangaf. I was there for breakfast, and I was totally impressed with the location and the decor (very cute and cozy) perfect sea view and right feel of the sun and the breeze.. But, yes the big but..
As always excited and comfortably going thru the menu, which comes in a shape of a huge placemat. I was ready to try more than I thought I could eat – so I asked my server to get in my order and made it pretty clear in what order I wanted to be served too.
First I wanted my Booboo Buns, to be followed by Camel –wings (Cinnamon, Sugar & Lemon and Nutella for toppings) and then the main “Eggs” Scrambled Avocados and Huevos Rancheros, of course with black American coffee.
The server took the order and went for a “whatever” break – so my eggs arrive first and I was not happy – I sent it back. Finally the Booboo buns arrive and I enjoyed them, but I was kinda worried about my eggs getting cold in the kitchen the whole time. Then came the Camel-Wing (I would describe it as an Indian version of ‘Puris’ with the relevant toppings.
In any case, we asked for the eggs, looked fancy however it was cold and Guess what? My Huevos Rancheros never arrived. Spoke to three different waiters, then the manager – who apologized and said it’s a new restaurant and new staff, hence the delay and miscommunication in the service. Well, you know what that is certainly not my problem. I went there with the intention to enjoy my morning, my breakfast, the view, the company and I was extremely disappointed..
So even before thinking of shooting some more pictures of the place or trying they range of cakes, I asked for my cheque and continued with my day
This is the so called food revolution happening in Kuwait however, is anyone really paying importance to what the customer wants or how the staff should be well trained before you can open to the public. Looks can deceiving – that’s what I learnt!!
I normally do not post about events happening in Kuwait cox I believe the news gets around anyway however, if someone would benefit or make a suggestion to me about posting it – I WOULD!
I have always had a hard time throwing stuff out, esp if I feel it can be reused or recycled – but the matter of the fact is, do I get around doing anything about it? Hmnnnn – NOPE!
However, after having attended RESUSE 5.0 last month at the ACK at Mishref which was geared towards eco-friendly living, I am more inclined towards actually reusing my stuff or rather UPCYCLING and if not then maybe recycling or at least contribute and help others who take the initiative to do so.
Hope I can recycle some of my old stored stuff too this month and post pictures soon..
So people if you guys have any OLD CD’s or WIRELESS phones (that is old phones not in use) you can drop them off at 360 Mall on Friday, 11th May 2012 and help save the environment. I know I have loads to drop….
A few pictures from RESUSE 5.0 last month, since I wasn’t carrying my Canon, I was so impressed that I just had to take a few clicks…. Enjoy it and Don’t forget to drop in your unused CD’s and cellphones… Remember every CD counts !!
I found this very interesting and inspiring article and I was fascinated to read more on it. Hence, I thougth it was worth sharing.
It all began in his childhood (around 1945) Volker Kraft saw a beautiful paschal decorated tree in his home town. So he wanted a tree like this. Kraft’s apple sapling sported just 18 eggs when he first decorated it for Easter in 1965. The Kraft family has been decorating their tree for Easter for more than forty years now. The number increased year by year; and by last year, the sturdy tree was festooned with 9,800 eggs, artfully decorated with everything from sequins to sea shells. This time, Kraft has reached 10,000 – and he says he’s stopping there
This is another example of making you dreams come true if you are truly determined to do so… nothing is impossible if you stick to it and deep in your heart you know you can do it.
Don’t you think this is just beautiful !! You can find the whole history on this at
Having grabbed my attention, a few days ago, I have been wanting to try this place for a couple of weeks now and finally got a chance. Since the name says it all, you cannot go there after your working hours during normal week days cox they timings are only from 5:00am (yes that’s right ) till 2:30pm (FYI – Tuesday is they day off). So finally a friend of mine and I decided to go and have breakfast there this morning. And this is what I think about the place.
Location : Block 1, Street 1, Fintas, Kuwait
The Executive Chef who received us and served us too
It was quite interesting – although they had a wide variety , the Indian in me was somehow inclined to the Full Indian Breakfast – Scrambled eggs with onions, tomato, hot green chills, chapattis with sweet mango chutney and spiced potatoes – KD 3.750
It is thankfully not very spicy and I loved the flavors. The portions were pretty good too. (I should recommend them to start accompanying it with Masala Chai too )
And my friend ordered the Eggs as you like – basically you can decide how you want them done and with a choice of sausages/bacon potatoes and toast. – KD 2.750
I guess she had a good fill too except we only discovered now, that we were not served the toast along with it (no idea why we didn’t notice it then, I guess the quantity was good enough so we didn’t miss out on much.)
And we ordered a coffee(KD 0.950) and a fresh orange juice (KD 0.950) to go along with it.
Overall experience, a neat and nice place to try in the morning for some early heavy breakfast – since otherwise the timings are not too convenient! Although by the time we were leaving all the tables inside were already occupied and one outside too. So people head out there on a perfect beautiful morning as long as you can still enjoy this cool weather in Kuwait (minus the sand storms of course)!! I am glad there are more of these kind of breakfast places opening up other than the usual Frozen Yogurts and Pizzerias we see these days.
