Ansam Burger at Burger Hub

While preparing for my blog competition, which I will be posting about SOON today, The Burger Hub Team suggested I pass by and name a burger after me ๐Ÿ˜‰

I went with my sister Anfal at around 7:00PM! Yes, I picked a time where I can have the freedom of taking pictures.. the place was kind of empty, but was getting more crowded by the time we left, so good ๐Ÿ˜‰

As we got seated… the staff were expecting us, and one by one came by to wish me an Continue reading

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 (ู†ุงุฑู†ุฌ) – 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

Lazurd Macarres

A day or two after I posted about Lazurd on my blog, I came home to find this goody bag waiting for me from Lazurd

Inside of which were three boxes of different flavors of Macarres! I guess they know how much I liked them ๐Ÿ˜€

Whats so special about them? They are chewier than macaroons and all of their flavor contains a hint of za’atar – which, to me, made it so special and so different

My two favorite flavors are rose and saffron โค

Thank you Lazurd – so so so much ๐Ÿ˜‰ I considered it an early birthday gift – very much appreciated โค

Tea W/ Abu Shady At Nawfara Cafe

During my day tour with Mohammed (link) I spotted this sign of Nawfarah Cafe (ู…ู‚ู‡ู‰ ุงู„ู†ูˆูุฑุฉ) – meaning The Fountain

I remember I read about it on the Internet… there is (still to-date) a “Hakawati” (ุญูƒูˆุงุชูŠ) storyteller that comes to this coffee shop at night named Abu Shady (ุฃุจูˆ ุดุงุฏูŠ)! 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

Shakespeare & Co.

A good place to have an afternoon tea at when shopping in Dubai Mall is Shakespeare & Co. ๐Ÿ˜‰ The cafe is designed in a very colorful Victorian style… chairs and sofas of bright colors, with classical mix and match patterns! No table is set in a way to have a matching set

This is the kind of place that I appreciate the kind of design used in but do not wish to have it for myself – if that’ll make any sense? Well let me try again! If I were starting my Continue reading

Loaded Cannoli at Baskin Robbins

Baskin Robbins is back with a new flavor of the month – Loaded Cannoli, made of cannoli ice cream swirled with pistachio, chocolate chips, and cannoli pastry pieces

Cannoli is basically an Italian delicacy -Sicilian to be exact- made of fried pastry tube stuffed with sweet creamy filling! I tasted it at the counter and asked for a regular size scoop to go… but noticed that last month’s flavor -J’adore French Toast (link) is still available ๐Ÿ˜‰

Its the one in the upper left corner! I asked him if it was gonna be a regular and he said no, they will sell till they are out of stock and thats all what they have left in the picture above! So Noor F. its now between you and me ๐Ÿ˜›

Anyways I got my Loaded Cannoli and ate my scoop at home

From their website, it seems that we are running a month behind and next month flavor will be Toasted Coconut Crunch swirled with caramel ribbon and praline cashews *DOUBLE YUM*

As for the Loaded Cannoli… I did not like it much! It was just okay! The texture was similar to that of cookies and cream… its a bit heavier!ย The ingredients were just not my thing! Though I liked the crunchy stuff in it.

I will go back and get some French Toast while it last!


I passed by LAZURD with my friend Amna S. a couple of weeks ago and was in love with the store… the display, the staff! I mean everything was nicely presented and the staff members although busy with customers, they were all smiles…

They invited me to come back again at a less crowded time to be able to pictures freely and taste as many items as much as I want. So we went back again, and this time the chef was there to greet us ๐Ÿ˜‰

At first we were greeted with a mini cup of some sort of a blueberry shot drinks ๐Ÿ˜‰

Then we took the tour inside the store… which is really small, but very nicely arranged… The chef was around to explain each of the items on display with the fabulous Myriam… So lets take the virtual tour inside the store now, shall we?

The store is decorated Continue reading
