Chocolate Printer Anyone?

In: Food, Technology

Came across this article through Bayt & Creativity Online. This could be the best ever invention of all time. Design your own chocolate and then print it. No more struggling with cones and other baking paraphernalia. I love the concept of 3d printers and using chocolate is just genius.

Yeah! That’s how its served. All dishes in a big steel thingy and we all sit on them cushions on the floor. The place isn’t that fancy looking but it was highly recommended for authentic Omani food. Amazingly each family gets their own room to eat in. We kept the meal simple. We ordered a hommus, Marak [...]

Review: Ruby Tuesday @ Avenues

In: Food, Reviews

It was around 9.30 at night and Ro just got off (pretty late) from work. Now she was exhausted from working late and so was I from being made to unnecessarily slog at the office the whole day so we decided to eat out. The nearest place I could think of was the Avenues.  So [...]

The KDD Softee

In: Food, Kuwait

Note to self: Order this instead of lunch, not after lunch. I used to have a lot of KDD mixed softees (vanilla and chocolate) usually at their Shuwaikh outlet. Love that extra crunchy cone too.

Viva-Panjim – Spicy!

In: Food, Goa

Mike took us for lunch today to Viva Panjim. It’s a nice little restaurant set in an old Portuguese style house. Very friendly service and great Goan food. It’s the first time I’ve tasted Fish Lollipops. I must say that their Pomfret curry rice was a tad bit spicy for me. The prawn and kingfish [...]

Home Made Sushi

In: Food

Seems there is a new delivery service for home-made Sushi in Kuwait [link]. I might try them one of these days. I haven’t had Japanese food in a while but was looking thru my photo archive and found these snaps of Sushi I prepared at home. It was about a year ago I think. All [...]
