 The M2 is Salhiya Company’s latest project, it refers to the M2 floor in Al Salhiya Complex where 4 new local restaurants will be opening. Dikakeen is one of those four, offering Kuwaiti fusion food.

I found the dishes served to be original. There are some recipes that I haven’t heard of before. Some were okay, and others were HEAVENLY. I’ll point out my favorites as you scroll down the pictures.

Review: Ubon

Ubon (6) copy


I finally got to try out Ubon Thai restaurant which had been on my to-do list for a while. It’s my first time with Thai and I loved it. The food was so PERFECT I couldn’t stop eating. It’s the type of food I would specifically crave on my hungriest hour. It’s simply that good.

The outdoor seating is very cozy and heaters are available. Heaters that can actually warm you up not those tall useless ones.

Ubon is located in Kuwait City, right next to Triangle restaurant – perfect neighbors. Here’s a map

Expired Foods At Supermakets: Till When?

Yesterday my dad went to one of the relatively new supermarkets in Salmiya.. Let’s refer to it as “G”. He got 3 cans of yoghurt. 3 of different brands. So today before lunch I got one of the cans out of the fridge and opened it, the yoghurt looked funny, well, it looked lumpy to be specific. checked the expiry date and it was expired 2 days ago. Thought to myself ‘oh well’, and went to the fridge to get another one. Automatically checked the expiry date and to my surprise, it was also expired, 5 days ago! Immediately got the third can and checked it, and you would guess, expired as well, when? a whole MONTH ago!!

How can these places keep getting away with selling expired food! Just the fact that people have the guts to sell a month expired product tells you a lot about the inspection that goes on! Such a shame 😐
