A trip to hungry bunny Alkhafji…

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 😀

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?!

Things 2 Do in London: Maoz Restaurant!

When i fist so Moaz and to be absolutely frank i was shooting something from across the street of  Moaz while my husband waited in front of it. Since i take forever to shoot he busied himself peering into the not so promising looking place…  when I came back to my husband insisted we go inside to try it!!!! Apparently this caught his attention… Continue reading

HIGHLY & URGENTLY RECOMMENDED: Zaatar W Zeit’s Cheese Samboosa!

You know when you taste something so good, so heavenly, you think how ever on earth did i live without this good bite of heaven?!

My friends at work got us some lunch from Zaatar W Zeit… there was a box of cheese samboosa… i never was inclined to taste their samboosa… i mean who would eat a samboosa from a fatayer place no? Urged by my friends to try one… i took a bite of the little hot pie… and i was instantly in love…

It’s so soft… so salty yet tang and herby… it’s just the right bite of chewy and crunchy… it is AMAZING… no no.. not amazing… OUT OF THIS WORLD! I almost ate the whole box all alone!!! If you get it very hot, and get a cup of steaming hot tea with mint and sugar… and combine the two: a bite from the samboosa followed by a sip of tea… i assure you that you will want to eat nothing but that combination for the next year.

How on earth did i not know about this culinary delight is beyond me! Why didn’t any one tell me about it before?! Haa?  MUST TRY people… i mean it… i am already salivating imagining the taste the thinking of ordering more for Dinner tonight *brrrrrrrrrr*
