This halo-halo is flirting with me! 😉
I received some very unexpected good news a couple of days ago and so my friend and I decided to meet and have dinner together to discuss about it and catch up with each other’s lives, too.
We decided to go and try Shakey’s Pizza as it has just opened a few weeks/months ago. I have never dined in any Shakey’s restaurant since I came here so I was really excited but wasn’t expecting too much as I always get disappointed when I do.
So, we tried fried chicken & mojos. The chicken tastes like how I remember it should but the mojos were different and small.
We divided the pizza in two flavors, mine was hawaiian and belly buster for my friend. It’s a bit different, too from what I’m expecting but still good.
We also had pasta. My friend tried spaghetti with meatball, as in, MEATBALLLL! It’s pretty funny seeing a huge piece of meatball on top of the spaghetti! 🙂 You’d feel full already just by looking at it!
Anyway, I opted for spicy seafood marinara and it was a winner! That for me was the highlight that night. The serving was a little too much for me but it’s delicious! At a very affordable price.
All in all, it was a great dinner. I think it’s safe to recommend it! 🙂 The staffs are friendly, as well. I wasn’t really expecting them to be that friendly but surprisingly, they were! So that’s a big plus. Oh except for the one who settled our bill…
Check ’em out, they’re located in Salmiya, just in front of Galleria 2000.
Happy day, homo sapiens!
I’m sure many of you reading this have tasted Thai food already. You may have visited Thailand before or you may have tried eating from Thai restaurants in your place.
I’m not hard to please when it comes to food and Thai dishes are a delight anytime. So last Thursday, my preggy friend and I pigged out at Sabaidee Thai Cuisine.
All the dishes were tasty, affordable and highly recommended.
Check them out and thank me later… 🙂

My friend and I had an unplanned dinner yesterday and we ended up dining at Korea Grill in New Park Hotel.
The side dishes (banchan) weren’t very good except for the kimchi. The Rabokki (라볶이) was good while the Jjamppong (짬뽕) tasted quite differently from what we were used to, but it was still okay.
Rabokki = Instant Ramen noodles + tteokbokki (spicy Korean rice cakes)
Jjamppong = spicy noodle soup (with lots of seafood)
We also ordered hotteok (not included in the photo) which I think is the winner for the night. Hotteok is basically sweet pancake and is one of the most popular foods in Korea.
Korean and Vietnamese are my top favorite cuisines and I am not sure which one to put first among these two, unfortunately, there are no Vietnamese restaurants around here (as far as I know).
By the way, the service was very good.
How ’bout you? What’s your favorite cuisine? Let me know in the comments. 🙂
I love Vietnamese food. Last month, I had the chance to go back to Vietnam and as an avid eater, I tried to eat as much as I could. There’s nothing I didn’t like. Everything was wow just like the first time I’ve been here and tasted their food.
For this post, let’s have bun cha…
Bun cha is said to have originated in Hanoi. It’s basically rice noodles, grilled pork in cold broth and herbs. So in a small bowl, you just have to mixed them all together then add some garlic, chili and lime. Most places include fried spring rolls when they serve bun cha and it perfectly complements the meal.
I noticed that bun cha is mostly served for lunch but I can eat it any time of the day. 🙂
The best place, for me, is the one in Hang Manh.
Yes, there are tables on the sidewalk, and that’s normal. 🙂
I decided to have dinner here in Red Cave Restaurant just a couple of hours ago after reading good reviews about the place. I love the ambiance the moment I came in.
I have been drinking lemon with mint since I got here and their version is definitely the best!
I ordered mouhamara for starters…
And Bedouin Ghaliyah for my main dish…
The service was good, too. The staffs were friendly and willing to assist you. So all in all, it was a great dining experience for me!
My colleague and I were starving since around lunch yesterday and so each of us had a sandwich but still ended up eating in a Thai Restaurant after work.
The place is just a 5-minute walk from the office and is just a small space with four tables that can sit four people. Luckily yesterday, the restaurant wasn’t busy.
It wasn’t our first time to dine here so it was easy for us to choose what to order.
We ordered tom yam soup with shrimps, chicken satay with peanut sauce (of course!) and stir-fried shrimps with basil and chili…
We also had seafood fried rice and shrimp pad thai…
We had a very satisfying meal. Generous servings and very reasonable prices. I can happily recommend it. 🙂
The place is A Roy D Thai Restaurant located in Al Muthanna Complex in Kuwait City.
Happy Thursday, homo sapiens!
Korean food has become really popular for the last few years and I can really understand why. I work for a Korean company and yes, we get to taste their food every now and then. But my friend and I usually go together in a Korean restaurant near our office and yesterday was one of those days.
Yesterday’s meal was galbitang (갈비탕). It’s become one of our favorites this year (I think?) and it’s really good. It’s a beef ribs soup which I think has very little ingredients served in a stone pot/bowl but it really is very tasty. Even tastier when it’s spicy.
And of course, I have to mention the free side dishes. Kimchi, kimchi pancake, fish cake, cauliflower, spinach and pickled cucumber were served last night.
Happy tummy! 🙂
I love Thursdates! Yes, Thursday dates with anyone (it really doesn’t matter with whom) as long as we have interesting conversations and good food, it is just good enough! Better if we can share a drink or two, but since I’m in Kuwait, that’s hopeless. So whatever we lack for drinks/alcohol, we just try to make it up on food and stories to share with each other.
So today’s Thursdate is with my friend (you know who you are) who just came back from vacation and yeah, Happy 1st Year Wedding Anniversary to you and your husband! We went to Sabaidee Thai Restaurant in Salmiya. Sabaidee in Thai means be well or be fine.
It’s just a small restaurant with only two or three staffs I think but that didn’t matter because we definitely enjoyed the food. There were a lot of food to choose from in their menu and we opted for these few:
All the dishes tasted very good and the servings were more than enough at very reasonable prices.
So if you happen to be in the mood for some delicious Thai food, you can check it out. I personally recommend their branch in Salmiya because I haven’t visited the other branches yet. You can also check out their website here.
