People actually started to ask, read & count !!! seeing all this happening lately i’m really impressed with the level of awareness that we have reached.
In the old days, if i stood in our local co-op reading the back batch of a product i could easily attract gazing eyes, some help to find the expiry date!! or even an old lady “al7mdela wel sheker” humming on my back.
I could easily spot this enhancement on awareness during Diet’s Care last week event (health & Fashion). the hall was FULL! no place to set & people are actually listening carefully to the presentations knowing and appreciating how much knowledge they can walk away with at the end of the lectures.
Diet Care is actually doing a great job paying back for the society with all those free awareness events & video’s on their youtube channel.
So a friend of mine had recommended to visit this HAPPY HAPPY place while being in Port Vell Barcelona. All I could say is we are very pleasant that we did.
We ended buying something from everything … Everything was delicious
Hope we can have VIOKO one day at K-town
To be honest I don’t really know if I do or not. I hate certain aspects of London, like the number of people who just get in your way all the time”eyes rolling” specially Arabs with “agendas”. I hate the every year raising number of money biggers flying around the shopping stores, waiting for their next victim. But then I remembered the great sights, weather, memories & FOOD in London.
Who could resist London’s FOOD!
What about being in a world of CHOCOLATE!
I have to be certain …. i think i missed you LONDON!
Declaimer : i know this post had diverted from it’s original idea due to me being FASTING “i can’t believe it’s 11th Ramadan already!”. But who in earth don’t like FOOD pics & posts, right?
Well well well, finally we got the chance to try out this well known gourmet Burgers place “BYRON”
while trying any new burger place i stick to the classic burger, i think tasting the burger naked “Meat” flavor can make you judge a burger better “am a meat lover indeed”
this branch is newly opened in Soho, i liked how the building is whole glass, it feels like you are eating on the walkway & the sun can find it way to your table easily.
the seating area was nice & tidy
the menu is kinda basic & easy to browse; burgers, sides, salads & desserts
we had green olives while waiting for the Burgers. Nothing complimentary, those olives costs approximately 2 KD “london prices on fire, Baby” ;P
The Burgers was well presented, holding up all together & the bun is soft and Fresh
thats the BYRON sauce to the side. It should be eaten with the burger but we ate it with the fries instead “seems like mayonaise based sauce”
the Apricot salad which was nice, only thing is the apricot is a little undercooked
Bottom line : it was nice but i preferred GBK over BYRON. Maybe it’s my taste buds whats defected these days, but all i could say is: it was “OK” ,,, & in my dictionary OK means Maybe just MAYBE am going back for re-try
Unlike how it was back home.. here you have to place your order on one of those cashiers
They were opening the window shields to the walkway area.. which made the place more wider and refreshing
We’re not big fans of cole slows and I don’t know why we ordered it.. but we liked it a lot 😀
The staff were amazing.. we really had a good time there
Westfield Shopping Centre
Most of people who have been to London passed by Signor Sassi.. One of the famous Italian restaurants there.. This is our second visit to it..
On my first visit I was expecting a fancy place according on the strong recommendation I’ve heard.. but when I stepped into the restaurant I was thinking mmm.. it’s just fine 😛 check out the place..
To be honest I can not recall what we ate on our first visit.. all what we remember that people overrated the place.. coz the food was nice nothing more.. nothing less.. and the decoration was old fashioned 😛
I know u might ask why we went there again.. well that’s why:
Their welcoming OLIVES 😀
The funny thing is that this is an Italian restaurant that doesn’t serve PIZZA!
So here’s what we had that day..
Bruschetta with basil and giant tomato.. they really needed to chop their tomatoes more
Eggplant Parmigiana.. was outstanding 😀 definitely will have it again on my next visit
Penne Arrabiata.. Was yummy too
And that’s all.. if u wanna try it some day.. u need to place a call to reserve.. u’ll find them here:
Knightsbridge Green London
14 Knightsbridge Green

While we where passing by Brunswick Centre (which is a quite old open shopping center), we noticed a new restaurant and decided to give it a try.. It is a 1 year old restaurant called Fastoche.. Fastoche is a French word means (easy-peasy) according to the way they serve food
