Reviewing The Grove Kuwait City

The Grove es una palabra inglesa que significa el bosquecito y el restaurante/cafetería que os presento hoy quiere que te sientas como si estuvieras en él. The Grove es una preciosa terraza interior llena de plantas, árboles, casitas de madera para pájaros, jaulas y preciosa decoración en el mobiliario. Lo que mas sorprende es su ubicación, desde las ventanas puedes ver el edificio de la bolsa y hasta la Gran Mezquita de Kuwait City.
La carta no es muy variada todavía y para mi opinión algo cara. Por el momento son menus tipo desayuno; sandwiches, huevos benedict etc.
Cuando estuve ayer pude darme cuenta de que esta de moda, que es un sitio para ir arregladito, los Laboutin y Chanel desfilaban por el local como si tal cosa y que sería un lugar perfecto para tomarse un Manhattan rodeada de las protagonistas de Sex and The City, ¿Vamos?.

The Grove is a restaurant / cafe that wants you to feel like you're in a garden. The Grove is a beautiful indoor terrace filled with plants, trees, wooden houses for birds, cages and lovely decor and furnishings. The most surprising is its location, from the windows you have a fantastic view of the stock exchange building and of the Grand Mosque in Kuwait City. 
The menu is not very complete because they are running a soft opening and still rather expensive in my opinion. By the now you can order breakfast menus such as sandwiches, eggs benedict etc. 
Yesterday I realized that it is a cool and "must" in Kuwait, a place to go nonetheless, the Laboutin and Chanel paraded by local just like that and it would be a perfect place to take a Manhattan coctail with the girls in Sex and The City, shall we?.

La central de las Flores en Salmiyah

Por esas casualidades de la vida he dado con el almacén de flores de Kuwait. Se encuentra en pleno Salmiyah, en la calle que entra desde el que será el Boulevar (dejandolo a tu derecha). Esta en la planta baja del edificio y podéis encontrar de todo, los precios son buenísimos y la calidad también. Hay jarrones, cestos, lazos, papel, piedritas para los jarrones y gente uy amable dispuesta a ayudar. Te hacen los ramos, los centros, los regalitos para las profes (para este fin de curso) Lo que quieras.


Añadir leyenda









The Central Agency for Information Technology

La puerta no pega nada con el resto.
Otro edificio que he encontrado fascinante es este en Kuwait City también "The Central Agency for Information Technology" menudos nombres rimbombantes. También me he colado en el pero dentro no había nada que mereciese la pena. Me chiflan esas ventanas con marquesinas de madera que le dan un aire de nostalgia al edificio. Deberían hacer un tour por los edificios tan maravillosos que tienen en esta ciudad donde se mezclan edificios viejos y/o derruidos con maravillas de la arquitectura.


Another fantastic building in Kuwait City " The Central Agency for Information Techonology" (who invents this names????) I went inside but there is nothing interesting to see. I love the structure of the building and the way they´ve covered the windows that gives a nostalgic view of it. It would be a good idea to organice a tour through the city explaining a little bit of this marvellous architecture.

See the contrast between the building and the abandoned construction. This is kuwait. A lot of work to do.

Don´t you love it'

This windows couldn´t be nicer......


El divorcio en el Islam Divorce in Kuwait

"Te repudio, te repudio y te repudio" con dos testigos y listo, estamos divorciados. Y luego pasa lo que pasa, que tienen que hacer seminarios sobre la materia. ¿Pensarán en tomar acciones para solucionarlo? jajajaja, es que no puedo parar de reirme

Cant remember the newspaper, one Sunday of May

Marunouchi Japanesse Restaurant in Mazaya 3 Tower Kuwait City

Yesterday I was surprised by a fantastic dinner at the new TOP Japanesse restaurant in Kuwait City "Marunouchi" in Mazaya 3 Tower. An elegant restaurant in the lobby of the Mazaya 3 building. (Instagram Account . @marunouchi_kowait)
Leather chairs, cristal chandeliers, Parisian look and a more than perfect service. We told the chef "Bring us whatever you want" that´s the smart code to use when you are fed up of eating rice and shushi and you dont know what to choose from the menu! Perfect is what we told to the Chef. What a perfect selection of dishes. You should not miss it. Sure I will repeat next week.
And now this tip Shhhhhhh. In a couple of days they will open the restaurant during the mornings and lunch time for breakfast, snacks and sandwiches. That´s a good and new idea. Congrats Adel B. You couldn´t have done it better. 






My favourite dish "Salmon Beet root salad" Yummy


In case you get lost, this is the building. in your right side when you get into Kuwait CIty through the 30 road. after the small roundabout, take the 3rd one and try to park in the big parking lot behind the building.

Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Science

Hoy he visto este edificio tan chulo que me ha recordado mucho al Arab Fund. Se trata del Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Science, no se muy bien que es lo que hacen dentro pero la verdad es que trabajar aquí es seguro mucho mejor que donde tienen las oficinas en Jazeera Airways que son barracones con todas las de la ley. He podido colarme y sacar unas fotos. Tienen un maravilloso Pendulo de Foucolt y unas maquetas de barcos muy chulas. No he podido ver mas pero al menos para ver esto me han dejado entrar.

Today I´ve been visit a couple of nive buildings in Kuwait City and this was of them. It is the Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Science and it reminds me a lot to the Arab Fund in Shuweickh. I was able to see the Foucault Pendule that he used to show to the world that the earth is round. I couldnt see much more. 
The outside of the building reminds me of Arab Fund. Beautiful building too.

El Péndulo que Foucault que utilizó para demostrar que la tierra era (y es) redonda.
Foucault invented this pendule to show that the world was round. 

Las oficinas hacia arriba como en Arab Fund abiertas al centro. ¡Me encanta!

Relaxing cup of coffee in Salem Al Mubarak st.

Me encanta este restaurante de comida libanesa con unas sillas que se balancean y agua que cae del cielo par refrescar el ambiente. En frente de Marks & Spencer antiguo en Salem Al-Mubarak. 

I love this restaurant with arabic food such as Shawarma. Chairs balance and a light artificial rain falls over you to suffer less hot. itñs in Salem Al Mubarak infront the old Marks & Spencer.


Kwik Kopy en Ahmed Al-Jaber st.

Hoy he tenido que imprimir unas cosas en gran formato y me han recomendado este sitio, es barato y rápido. Está en Kuwait City en Ahmed Al-Jaber St. Dile que te he recomendado yo el sitio, no sabe mi nombre, solo dile que te lo dijo la española.
