Follow the Frog - Get free Coffee

Costa is reaching out to all bloggers to spread the word!

If you go to that branch today and say "I follow the frog" you'll get a free coffee! It's Earth Day and our Rainforest Alliance Certified coffee is kind to the forest and  supports farmers and farm workers worldwide who are working to improve their livelihoods and those of their families.
So, in honour of Earth Day, enjoy a coffee on us! We'll have free coffee at another branch tomorrow, and at a third branch on Thursday. The locations will be revealed on the day, so stay tuned!

I know where this location is too bad I won't be in the area.

Pictures around Kuwait

I saw this sign hanging in Surrah Co-op, "It's the law" that's a nice gesture but I still see 12-year olds hanging out in the park trying to smoke.
If you dine-in at Taco Bell Abu Halaifa this is what you get, a cost cutting move perhaps?

Great garage in Fahaheel



If you're looking for a decent garage for your car I recommend Jawhar & Mozaffar Trading garages. They are located in the garage area in Fahaheel, the last right turn as you are heading toward Sultan Center Fahaheel. The guy pictured above is Mohammed (I think) and he speaks English as well as a couple other languages.

If you're looking for an apartment with "bureaucracy + monsters" this is the place for you! Only in Kuwait! Get it before someone else does!

Missing a pet? Check out Friday Market




When I visit Friday Market I always take some pictures of the dogs and post them in case someone might be missing one of the dogs. If you lose a dog or cat the first place I would check out would be this place.

Carribean Hut Restaurant


 Ibrahim Bader Al Boreeqee Chef and owner of Caribbean Hut Restaurant Kuwait and his father.

A native of Puerto Rico and born in El Condado, Puerto Rico in the early eighties, due to the military he moved around a lot between and began cooking at the age of 8 under the supervision of his mother. With the direction of his grandparents who consisted of a Home Economics teach and a Chef/Restauranteur/Hotelier, he was able to increase his knowledge and love of cooking. His official training comes from a basic culinary course sponsored by the Georgia National Guard and the time spent working in some of Georgia’s dining facilities at the age of 16; continuing his training by working for restaurants like Waffle House, Country Pride Restaurant, among others.
 

Fresh  piña colada drink
 Bacalaitos/cod fish fritters
Mofongo- pulled beef with a side of plantains

The chef and his father were very nice and love their business. On this day they weren't able to serve some of their specialties as they were out of some of the imported ingredients. The bacalaitos were good but a little too much oil. I loved the mofongo, next time a little less salt but the piña colada was really good. I would go back when they have more variety but when a business imports their ingredients you have a 50/50 chance of getting certain dishes. They are open from 3pm-11pm Tuesday thru Sunday and closed on Mondays, you can find out more by visiting their website.
