Yesterday was the official opening of Real Veal Burger. I was really eager to try out the place as a burger junky and I wasn’t disappointed.
Firs off were the appetizers/side dishes. We tried 3 out of the 4 possible side dishes. The regular fries were good but the chili cheese fries and the fried mushrooms were great. I am definitely sticking with the later 2 for my next order.
The burger is one thick patty that is juicy and supper tender. The meat is so tender that the patty actually falls apart but tastes great. My recommendation is to go for the single patty and always have mustard in a burger ALWAYS.
RV Burger is located in 52 Degrees – Al-Tilal Mall
Usually, when you hear that healthy it tastes not that good. Having candy and chocolates to be both free of junk and tastes good is a different ball game. Its hard to have the stuff that is filled with artificial flavors to taste any good how will the stuff that is made with out it will compare?
Unreal: Candy Unjunked is an attempt to take all the junk out of candy like Artificial flavors, artificial colors, GMO’s, corn syrup, hydrogenated oils and preservatives. And also reducing sugar by up to 40% per serving.
Thats great but how does it taste? It tastes great I’ve tried most of what they have to offer and liked every thing. Too bad it can’t be easily obtained here in Kuwait at the moment but I’m sure it will be soon like everything else.
Their promotional video is filled with celebrities.
Everything is going jumbo, even juices. It looks like the new size that was introduced by KDD a while back for their chocolate milk was a hit. The 500ml size is now available for both cocktail and pineapple juices. I couldn’t find it for any other flavor so as far as I know this might be a testing period to see how it goes.
A new Stride Gum commercial makes fun of Apple commercials with intelligicity.
I think it’s a good idea to have turkeys instead of people as audience in sitcoms.

Yesterday we went to try out the newly opened Smashburger in The Village in Abo AlHasani. It adds yet another burger place to an impressive burger joints here in Kuwait.
It is the same as the other top tier burger places where they serve fresh ingredients and bun. I was intrigued by the “Kuwait Burger” but after reading that it had Lebnah in it I decided to go with something else so I got the classic which was pretty good. I also liked the rosemary “Smash Fries”.
I still prefer Shake Shack and Elevation Burger over Smashburger, but it is battling with Fat Burger for the 3rd spot. Little Ruby’s has excellent burgers as well. I have a problem with its location though as its easily crowded and somewhat far. It is located right next to Upper Crust, another place I haven’t tried yet.
The Red Velvet is by far my favorite cake, so how can you make it better? By removing the red and putting my favorite color on there, blue.
I really should give this Betty Crocker recipe a try.
Royal Blue Velvet Cake Recipe

1 1/4 cups buttermilk
1/3 cup vegetable oil
1 tablespoon unsweetened baking cocoa
2 teaspoons royal blue paste food color
1 toothpickful violet paste food color
1 jar (7 oz) marshmallow creme
1 cup butter or margarine, softened
2 1/2 cups powdered sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1. Heat oven to 325°F. Grease bottom and sides of three 8-inch round cake pans with shortening and lightly flour, or spray with baking spray with flour.
2. In large bowl, beat all cake ingredients with electric mixer on low speed about 30 seconds or until moistened. Beat on medium speed 2 minutes, scraping bowl occasionally.
3. Divide batter evenly among pans. Bake 23 to 28 minutes or until top springs back when lightly touched in center. Cool 15 minutes. Remove from pans; cool completely.

When I was at Proud to be Kuwaiti last week, my wife bought a box of chocolates from a place called Brown Diamond. They offer small cubed-shaped chocolate and marshmallow pieces that are absolutely wonderful. I really enjoyd them and simply could stop stuffing my self with them.
The box has 1/2 a kilogram worth of brown diamonds that costs 6 KD.
