As Seen On TV

I met up with Tivo Guy for lunch, we went and had Burger King at Muthana Complex. After lunch I took him upstairs to check out the shop that sells the Japanese robot toys and stuff, then we decided to walk around the mall a bit just to kill some time. We went into this one corridor which led us to some shops in the back and I found stuff I didn't know existed there like the official Asus dealer. We also found a "As Seen On TV" store. I loved it! Its really cool to see the crappy stuff that they try to sell you on TV but now in front of you live. Now you can actually test the product before you buy it. The place was packed with a lot of stuff from gym gear to little toy model cars. Really cool. Anyway, I just came back from dinner, I was at Johnny Carino's. I had the Chicken Fettucini and I think I am gonna puke. Its just too heavy to have for dinner, I didn't even finish my plate! My wife had the Lemon Rosemary Chicken and I tried a bit of that and it was delicious. Definitely gonna order that next time. Does anyone here watch the show Rides by the way? Its such a fucking cool show, its like American Chopper and Pimp My Ride combined. They put it on the Discovery Channel like once a week I think. Very cool.

I suspect it was a function of the mediocre food we had in camp, but I never had a bad meal at Johnny C's. I actually think the Kuwait version is better than the US version - same goes for Friday's. Chili's is about the same in both places.

The restaurant in Kuwait towers isn't bad, but once again, that may have been a function of our deprived taste buds. The night we went it was all buffet with lots of chicken/beef with rice, salmon etc etc - it was all over the map foodwise (arab and euro styles)

For the price, it probably isn't that good, but we didn't mind.

If you like Italian food, you should try "Al Dente" at Movenpick Hotel in the Free Trade Zone. It's a cozy place with surprisingly good food. It's one of Kuwait's best kept secrets IMO.
