In Town Cafe

With my sushi burger fever, I heard In Town Cafe – a new cafe opened in Kuwait City- is offering two kinds, beef burger sushi and chicken burger sushi. So I headed there after work.

The cafe is located in Al Saqran Mall in Al Mubarakiya area, right next to Gulf Bank. As I entered the cafe, the owner was there and he was very nice and very friendly! I was in for the beef sushi burger but he insisted that I try other dishes! I browsed their menu while he suggested some dishes, I was like sure… I will trust your judgment. He ordered In Town Roll, fried shrimp, fresh mango, and mango sauce.

The shrimp-mango combo was interestingly fine! I guess for shrimp, it takes a mango to tango ๐Ÿ˜‰ If you know what I mean

And about that sushi burger….

Soy sheet hugging two lightly toasted rice patties, inside of which is a juicy beef burger, onions, lettuce, mushroom… and a special sauce! Totally awesome! It reminded me so much of some of the burgers served in Singapore! Very creative and the soy sheet added a nice touch to the experience, though this plate is good to share since there are two in one order… I shared it with the owner. I love the fact that we are having a variety of sushi burgers in Kuwait… each with its unique taste and presentation!

Then he asked me if I cared for anything to drink.. I was gonna ask for green tea or water, but he suggested I try their rocca juice (made of rocket leaves)!! And being theย adventurous person that I am… I did not mind it at all ๐Ÿ˜‰

First impression? WOW! I loved it… its different!! I mean you can really taste the leaves… you feel’em strongly in the juice, yet it got that milkshake texture to it and it feels very light ๐Ÿ˜€

Shortly after the owner’s brother came in and ordered some nigiri sushi; tuna and salmon… and yes of course, I snapped a picture for you ๐Ÿ˜‰

I had a great time and wonderful company! Very promising cafe in town! Besides sushi, they offer a wide range os salads, eggs, soups, appetizers, platters, sandwiches, pastas, noodles… you name it ๐Ÿ˜‰ They wanna cater to all tastes in town!

Keep in mind that the cafe is very tiny and can cater up to four persons at a time… soon they will have a seating area outside when the weather permits, but they do offer delivery ๐Ÿ˜‰ ย You can order by calling 22497971

You can find their full menu on their Facebook Group (link) along with the menu and more pictures ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thank you Abdulla for lunch ๐Ÿ™‚ It was really nice meeting you and your brother and I wish you all the best ๐Ÿ˜€

Oishii Sushi Burger Cravings!

Ever since I readย someCONTRAST’s post about Oishii‘s Sushi Burger I have been craving it like crazy! I have been dreaming about it day and night… and yes! I’ve had it before (link)…. so yeah, I called them up and asked them to prepare me two orders (5 pieces each) for pick up! I got in and I started snapping away….

By the time I got there, they were preparing the burger patties and rice buns…

The sweet potato chips <3!

My oh my! I love this creation… the ingredients compliment each other really well ๐Ÿ˜‰

I was eating while they were preparing… the chips first, and then the burgers… so instead of delivering 10 pieces home, I went back with only… ahem… seven ๐Ÿ˜›

Price tag? KD3 per order!

Oishii Sushi is located in AlShaab, Ibn Alkhateeb St. Their tel # is 22644440
