Kuwait’s Health Awareness is Awesome

by Abdul-Aziz in Community, Events, Fashion, Food, Health

girl weighing food Kuwaits Health Awareness is Awesome

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.

Do i Miss LONDON?

by Abdul-Aziz in Food, Travel

IMG 2438 620x463 Do i Miss LONDON?

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!

 Do i Miss LONDON?

Byron’s Burgers

The Humming Bird Bakery

Signor Sassi 

Gourmet Burger’s Kitchen

Fastoche

Or maybe eating while strolling around the food market in Covent Garden on Thursdays & hunting Faberge Eggs afterwards

 Do i Miss LONDON?

What about being in a world of CHOCOLATE!

 Do i Miss LONDON?

 

 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?

BYRON – Proper Hamburgers

by Abdul-Aziz in Food, Travel

IMG 24461 620x463 BYRON   Proper Hamburgers

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.

IMG 2447 620x463 BYRON   Proper Hamburgers

the seating area was nice & tidy

IMG 2456 620x463 BYRON   Proper Hamburgers

IMG 2451 620x463 BYRON   Proper Hamburgers

the menu is kinda basic & easy to browse; burgers, sides, salads & desserts

IMG 2452 620x463 BYRON   Proper Hamburgers

we had green olives while waiting for the Burgers. Nothing complimentary, those olives costs approximately 2 KD “london prices on fire, Baby” ;P

IMG 2453 620x463 BYRON   Proper Hamburgers

 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”

IMG 2459 620x463 BYRON   Proper Hamburgers

the Apricot salad which was nice, only thing is the apricot is a little undercooked

IMG 2460 620x463 BYRON   Proper Hamburgers

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

Their welcoming OLIVES icon biggrin Signor Sassi   London

This is the most delicious olives I’ve ever tried.. the green olives doesn’t have a bitter taste at all icon smile Signor Sassi   London Signor Sassi 3 620x465 Signor Sassi   London

So here’s what we had that day..
