Naranj – Old Damascus

While roaming around Old Damascus, specially when my sister was busy with the delegation.. I tend to just randomly go into the alleyways! I never got lost, but always managed to discover new places and -ahem- restaurants! Not to mention the grand tour I had during my second day in Damascus!

Anyways… I passed by a restaurant called Naranj, which translates to (نارنج) – some sort of orange specie -bitter one- in Syria.

I entered the restaurants, it was still day time… I looked into their menu and took a couple of pictures

I know the place is kind of newly opened in Kuwait, so I really wanted to try this one in Syria and then the one in Kuwait so I can compare the two.. I marked it as a must visit at a later time when my other sisters and nephew join in from Kuwait

A couple of days later, after their Continue reading

Tea W/ Abu Shady At Nawfara Cafe

During my day tour with Mohammed (link) I spotted this sign of Nawfarah Cafe (مقهى النوفرة) – meaning The Fountain

I remember I read about it on the Internet… there is (still to-date) a “Hakawati” (حكواتي) storyteller that comes to this coffee shop at night named Abu Shady (أبو شادي)! I was determined to pass by the cafe during my stay!

I came at different times and asked the staff… they informed me that he comes around 5:00-5:30PM

The cafe is located behind the Continue reading

It was a very short yet very eventful weekend! We were there on a mission, and the mission was accomplished 😉 Other than that… we enjoyed our time to the max and ran into so many family and friends in Dubai Mall!

We arrived Dubai on Thursday afternoon… the plane was kinda full, and the airport was crowded… we headed to our hotel, Armani Hotel Dubai. I have decided to make this my first review of this short trip… so lets go in, shall we 😉 ??

The hotel is situated in Burj Khalifa, which is so close by Dubai Mall! We got into the lobby and waited for our lifestyle manager to proceed with the check-in! We were four, so we got Continue reading
