It’s been a while since I’ve gone to a Kuwaiti restaurant, so when a friend of mine suggested that I should try Maadenaa in Kuwait City – I decided to give it a go since I was in Kuwait City at those afternoon hours of hunger… Located on the 28th floor of Burj Jassim it offers a spectacular view of Kuwait and has an ambience much unlike any other Kuwaiti restaurants I’ve been to.
I tried the Mutabbaq Hamour (Rice with Fish) along with Gabbout (stuffed flour dumplings in a meat stew).
The Mutabbaq was excellent, which comes with Hamour fillet pcs, the only reason i always opt for Hamour cox i dont like to chew on the bones however I ended up with a huge bone in one of them – ouch. The gabbout was good too, my only complaint would be that the dumplings were a bit too thick which at times masked the flavor of its stuffing. The portions were huge which left me too stuffed to try the desert so I opted for the Moroccan tea which was a perfect end of the meal. Oh – plus they dont serve any desserts – at least thats what the waiter told me…
Overall a great place to try Kuwaiti food with one of the best views of Kuwait I’ve seen. Unfortunately I forgot to take pictures of the food, but I did get some of the restaurant! Enjoy!
