 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.

“Fearless Encounters” Finally Coming to Cinescape

 

I posted about this Kuwaiti documentary back in November 2011 and  been waiting for it to arrive here ever since!

Fearless Encounters is a documentary showing footage that was shot 20 years ago during the Iraqi invasion of Kuwait. But this footage wasn’t edited until recently. The man behind the camera, Talal Showaish-Salem, spent 6 weeks with a Kuwaiti firefighting team, taping their efforts in putting out the burning oil fields. It gives us an inside look that we probably never seen before.

The documentary is finally coming to Cinescape theaters on 10 May 2012. Keep an eye out for it.
