P&T With Noon

Noon is one my favorite breakfast buddies… an early bird, who do not mind waking up really early to have breakfast out as early as 6:30AM sometimes… before going to work! Just like me 😉

We decided to drop by Prime & Toast for breakfast a couple of days ago… a place we both LOVE so much 😉

Anyways… we both wanted to try something new! Noon opted for a turkey and cheese omelette with apple juice

She is a BIG Ricotta Pancake lover at P&T (link) but I guess she was in the mood for a change! She loved her egg so much! She said it was so good and that it exceeded her expectations 😉

My order? Mulberry Eggs, sunny side ups of course… I only asked them to make two eggs instead of three… but when my dish arrived I was like hmmm! I am not sure if I had this one before – so much for trying something new –

Loved it as usual! Loved everything about it actually! The eggs were made nicely (ideally I like crunchier edges)! The egg yolks were liquid-y just the way I like’em… cherry tomatoes with thyme added a yummy (and aromatic) touch to the dish! Hmmm it was one yummy breakfast… IF it wasn’t for my coffee! I dont know what is it with me and black coffee these days! No one seems to make’em right anymore! It  tasted burnt :S Sorry P&T but I hated it 😦 Thank God for Fiji Water 😛

It was one nice outing… Noon is just fun to be around with 🙂 She always have some interesting stories to tell and I enjoy her company ❤

Our bill came to a total of KD7-8 (forgot the exact amount)

Prime & Toast has two locations. We went to the one opposite AlSeef Palace. Their other branch is located in AlArgan in AlBeda’a.

Cooking Challenge

I dont know why I haven’t post about this yet! It happened towards the end of last summer…..

My friend Alfa+ tried this Pear Cake at Barista Cafe while he was in Dubai

He asked me to try it out next time I go to Dubai, specifically in Mall of Emirates! And so I did 😀 Here is the cake I ordered

Pretty good cake! I loved it… now why did he want me to try it? He wanted me (actually challenged me) to create my own version at Continue reading

Ansam II Icy Yogurt – The Launch

Yesterday we had a very closed and cozy event at Napket to launch my second Icy Yogurt! I invited my family, close friends, and my top fans!

We had half of the restaurant reserved for us in a very lounge-y setting with amazing music playing in the background! I tried my best to snap pics of everyone there with the help of my cousin! I was having so much flying like a butterfly between my family and friends talking with everyone while refreshments were going around till it was time to present Continue reading

Ansam II Yogurt – Now At Napket

I had an amazing evening with family, close friends, and Ansam Yogurt TOP FANS (link).

We had a special closed event at Napket – we had half of it for us and a couple of Napket’s management team. It was so much fun 😀

It will be available tomorrow at Napket – The flavor??? Well, can  you guess?? 😉


At Safa Al Hashem’s

I was invited to a dinner/gathering at Safa AlHashem’s house! I love this woman! She is full of energy and positive vibes (mashallah)!

I was too busy mingling and talking to everyone there. I met quite a few fabulous people there too! It was a fabulous crowd and a much needed gathering after a long hectic week!

I also ran into H.E. Deborah Jones! Super sweet and down to earth as well!

Honestly, when I first met Safa and Deborah at the Baking Tray and had a chit-chat with them telling me that they love my blog, I felt it was an added value to my already existing fabulous base of readers! When with them, my jaw hurts after I leave because I cannot stop smiling all the time (by the way, it hurts in a good way – in away that I wanna see them more and enjoy my jaw pain later lol)

I wish I took pictures 😦 I was busy chatting with everyone there, however the setting was fabulous with food stalls all over the place and munchies everywhere you turn! Oh I should have snapped some pictures 😦

Safa…. Thank you for an amazing dinner! I love you ❤

Breakfast at PQ

One of my favorite places to have breakfast at is PQ – Le Pain Quotidien 😉

I love their food… their organic food! I just miss the spreads they used to offer 😦 Not anymore….

Anyways… I went with Luluscious for brunch and while we were placing our order, the waiter goes “Too bad we will be closing soon” I gasped!! Turned out he was teasing us… they are closing down at The Avenues phase I and moving to phase II 😛 *whew*

Anyways… I always get their hot chocolate – its my favorite place to have hot chocolate 😉

I order it skimmed and enjoy it to the last drop! Knowing me, I favor paper cups for hot drinks, but not in PQ 😉 I love their huge bowl-like cups so much 😀

Our brunch consisted of three dishes… two open sandwiches (one is kashkawan cheese/mushroom, the other was turkey, cheese, and chicken) and egg Benedict

Lulu snapped this amazing pics for me… LOVE the natural light effect in it ❤

Their open sandwiches were fabulous… Luluscious approved 😉 The cheese is heated/melted just right, and the mushrooms were a great addition! Turkey and chicken one was good 🙂

As for the egg Benedict, perfect hollandaise and the egg was just perfect – I asked for it to be without spinach 😉 I just like it better that way!

There are three locations for PQ that I know of, The Palms, The Avenues, and Marina Crescent. Their tel numbers respectively are: 25633684, 24954631, and 22244942

Bubble T

Not too long ago my friend Yuni told me to try out Bubble T’s lychee iced tea. Now I have never been to Bubble T before but I was so anxious to try this iced tea…

To my luck, my other friend Shushu was invited to do hair nails in Galleria 2000 at around 11:30 last weekend. We decided to meet at Bubble T at 10:00am before her appointment

The mall was Continue reading

Patara – Fine Thai Cuisine

My sister told me to drop by Patara for AMAZING Thai food…. and guess what? Lucky me -ahem- My old friend Abdulrahman and his super sweet wife Razan invited us for dinner there last December 😉 It was an AMAZING night and a great company…

Now the pictures I am about to share dont do the restaurant justice! I forgot to snap pictures before the attack!

Initially, we were given out the menus… I, as usual when dining a la Thai, would go for green curry chicken. My dad wanted seafood… Abdul asked us if we trusted his taste? Knowing him all those years, I knew I could trust him with food and food choices… so we placed the menus on the table and we let the master do the job!

Now I dont know the dishes names but it went from lamb leg, to fish, and two kind of Continue reading
