Blueberry Icy Yogurt

Last night while in the Avenues with Shushu & Arwa… and after our feast at Gaucho Grill, we decided to stop at Napket! I have had called them earlier to inquire about their flavor of the day for the Icy Yogurt and it was Blueberry!

Perfect 😉

Since we decided to sit outside, and since I did not bring my camera…. picture quality was not all that, but the Icy Yogurt was REALLY good!

I had mine with no toppings

While Arwa ordered hers swirly with the natural flavor and topped with strawberry and pomegranate (sorry forgot to snap it earlier)

We both loved it so much! It taste so good… but I still feel that the watermelon is the best out of the flavors I have tastes (besides the natural one of course).

Shushu joined us later! She is not into icy/frozen yogurt, and she really did not trust Arwa & I much, specially after Gaucho Grill to try “new” items, so she opted for Cold Stone. But seeing how we went “ohh and ahhh” with every bite, she tried it and surprisingly LOVED it so much!!

Anyways…. the list is now as follows

  • Natural (check)
  • Coconut (check)
  • Watermelon (check)
  • Blueberry (check)
  • Mango
  • Peach
  • Blackberry
  • Honeydew

Fortunately, when I got back home…. I was tagged in a picture my cousin had taken of the Blueberry icy yogurt! MUCH better than mine

Thanks Noufa K. 😉

Napket is located in the Avenues Phase II and their tel # is 2259-7755

Oh…. and Hi “Dodi” :-*

Gaucho’s New Burgers

Many of my burger outings are with Arwa & Shushu! And this time it was a bit of an adventure.

Shushu had texted me earlier in the day to meet at Gaucho Grill for burger… I was so up for it and was SO HUNGRY by the time we got there. Flipping through the menu, the waiter came by with the usual steaks tray but we told him that we all wanted burgers. He suggested that we try the new burgers they have. The order comes with four different burgers. We clearly asked him if it was slider size, and he confirmed it… he suggested though we have ONE order for all of us, but then again when we asked him about the size… he was like its “small”.

Shushu looked at the leaflet, since they were not on the menu, and was like “Guys! I dont think he knows what sliders are. The order is KD11-something”. But I still wanted to try it although Shushu tried to bring some sense into us LOL… the order came in and we were all SHOCKED!!! Check out the “small” Continue reading

Falafel and Labneh

I have been craving Falafel and Labneh fatayer lately… and so I ordered it from two different places so far

Fatayer Ala Altayer

and Fatayer & Saj Alarz

I personally prefer the light colored falafel, which is used in Fatayer Ala Altayer… It was lighter and the dough tasted better than Fatayer & Saj Alarz! If you prefer lighter falafel taste with creamy labneh, go for Fatayer Ala Altayer….

Do you know of any other places that serves this item?

Both menus can be found in Q8PaperDump
