Koshary Take 2: Koshary Jo7a’s

Yesterday afternoon as i got out of my orthodontists appointment i had to eat something soft to eat… and since i was craving Koshary anyways i thought let me make the trip to the alleys of Hawalli to get my self some…

I honked and yelled and cursed all the way Koshary Jo7a in 7awalli, the behind Fotokina on the same street as Hasan Abuls & Alshaye3… don’t know the street’s name though… i got there, ordered my self a koshary for two and came back home…

I already had some chickpeas… so i mixed the stuff up and took the picture… Boy does it look different from the one i got the other day! It was more appetizing and much more fresh! Tasted amazing too!!!

Highly recommended for a first Koshary Trial 😀

Things 2 Do in London: Gordon Ramsay’s Plane Food!

Since i get so nervous on the day i am travelling back to Q8 i usually only have breakfast and skip lunch… therefore by the time i go past customs into the tax free area in Heathrow Terminal 5 i would be STARVING…

Knowing that the only meal that would await me on the plane is hours away and is actually a gooey greasy mushroom rissotto… i would Continue reading

Ikea Frozen Yoghurt!

The frozen yoghurt mania is still going strong in Q8… one latest addition to the Fro-Yo q8y scene is…. IKEA!

I was in Ikea yesterday when i saw an ad for Frozen Yogurt!!! I  used to be a fan of their soft serve ice cream back in their old building but ever since they moved to avenues something in the mix has changed… their ice cream is still very popular though and now they are selling frozen yoghurt too! There is only plain frozen yogurt flavor. Fruit toppings are either strawberries or kiwi. Crunchy toppings include fruit loops cornfkales thing and 3 other crunchy things. By the time of their closing (10 pm) they had maybe one spoonful of strawberry left and another 2 spoonfuls of kiwi… and it’s sold for 500 fils!

Have you tried their frozen yoghurt before? I didn’t have the chance yesterday but i am willing to try it one day…

Who Makes the Best Koshary in Q8?

I woke up this morning with the strangest craving ever… I was craving Koshary!

Not only plain old koshary… no no no it won’t do… i was craving koshary topped with chickpeas… something we do not have in Q8… this strange craving comes from reading Ansam’s Post about Koshary Abu Tareq!!!

What was i supposed to do now? People wake up craving toast biscuits croissant not Koshary! Koshary Jo7a make pretty good koshary and considering the horrible weather outside today i couldn’t drive all the way to Hawalli -i feared for my safety- so i went online and searched… apparently Koshary Taw El Lail that is being sold in Surra & Khaldiya co-op is supposed to be good.

So i drove there and got my self some… and some chickpeas as well… i put them together and tried the combo together… not bad but didn’t taste as good as i expected it to be…

The craving is still not satisfied… i must retry the combination from elsewhere! if you are a fan of Koshary do you know of Koshary place other than Koshary Jo7a that sells pretty good Koshary please?!

New Blog on the Block: Eb6ainiya.com!

Before recommending that you check out this new foodie blog i must stress that i am not recommending this blog just because i recieved a request to do so. Q80 in Denver, one of the writers behind this blog, has been commenting on food posts and posting forever and his comments are min blog-posts on their own. The last time he commented i needed help on deciding which BBQ service to choose and his comment was spot on! If anyone deserves to become a foodie blogger… i can’t think of anyone better suited for that job!

Check out their blog http://www.eb6ainiya.com … i guess the name says it all 😀

Good luck guys!

Things 2 Do in London: Birmingham’s Xmas Market!

This slideshow requires JavaScript.

It started snowing early this year in the UK. There is nothing better in this snow than to stroll in a German style Xmas Market in the snow. It’s just the perfect time! We took the train to Birmingham to visit their Frankfurt Xmas Market and by the time we got there it was snowing lightly and bitterly cold of course but it was amazing! Especially while eating everything we can buy and eat there :p … If you are even in London during December you must visit Birmingham for their Xmas market… it’s well worth the trip!  Continue reading
