@Tatami_Kuwait introduces Brunch with a Japanese twist

All of last week, I was impatiently waiting for Friday morning to arrive to go to the launch of Tatami’s new breakfast and brunch weekend menu. Now I know what you might be thinking, a Japanese restaurant that serves breakfast? How?

Well let me tell you, the menu consists of traditional breakfast items with Japanese-inspired ingredients. The only Japanese item they have on the menu is the okonomiyaki, and I highly recommend you give it a try.

We arrived at Tatami at around 10:30 in the morning, and I quickly noticed the beautifully arranged flowers in tin mugs decorating the restaurant.

Aren’t they beautiful! The leaves of one of the flowers look like lettuce leaves which was so appropriate. The entire arrangement looks like a salad and I just want to eat it up.  Continue reading

@Khaleejesque’s first print issue launch event

Khaleejesque celebrated their first print issue in true style at 360 mall from 5-6 February 2012.
Their booth had large panels of highlight spreads from the magazine. I visited them on their second day at noon with my mother, who was by the way, beyond impressed by the magazine and the amazing Khaleejesque team.

The pictures below were taken by my friend HS on the first night.

Before leaving, we each got a bag full of goodies: Khaleejesque’sfirst print issue with the breathtaking cover, a beautifully designed planner and a m&ms cookies from Nestle Toll House! We couldn’t be more happier.

Now lets go support local initiatives and go grab your own copy. Click here to find out where you can find them.

Discovering arepas

On the hipsters-filled Queen Street West of Toronto, we passed by this gem…

Arepa Cafe.

What is an arepa you may ask?

According to Wikipedia,

An arepa is a dish made of ground corn dough or cooked flour, popular in ColombiaVenezuela and other Spanish speaking countries. It is similar to the Mesoamericantortilla and even more to the SalvadoranpupusaArepas can also be found in Panama, Puerto Rico and the Canary Islands.

The possibilities for fillings are endless! On our first visit, our arepas were filled with black beans, pulled meat and fried plantains. It was perfection! Unfortunately, my phone got stolen recently so can’t show you the picture of the dish but trust me, it was the best ‘sandwich’ I’ve ever had!

It was so good, that we had to go the following day.

This time I tried avocados with chicken and fortunately I sent the picture of my arepa to someone, just for the sake of making them jealous.

When I returned home, I went on a mission to recreate these dishes.

And then I find out that I need to buy this to make arepas! I don’t think it’s available in Kuwait. However, if any of you lovely readers can let me know where I can find Harina P.A.N.  pre-cooked corn meal in Kuwait, I would be most grateful.
