Eat and Die

The weather today was perfect. I wish it could always stay like this. Not freezing cold, but just cold enough to wear a nice cozy jacket. I took a walk in Kuwait City today during my lunch hour. Summer is coming up really soon and I want to take advantage of this awesome weather and walk around as much as I can. I went to this shawerma place called Tarboush. Its located near Burgan Bank in Kuwait City next to Sheraton. If you are walking and you take a right at Burgan Bank, you then take a left into this narrow street full of indians and philipino shops. The shawerma place is there. Although it didn't look very appetizing I decided to give it a shot and try it. It was terrible. Like gross terrible. The chicken looked raw, the place wasn't clean, AND they use mayonnaise instead of garlic. The shawerma guy looked creepy and wasn't very friendly. shawerma costs 250 fils which I think is too expensive for the location and quality. Across the street I could have gotten a better shawerma for 200 fils. I quickly ate my sandwiches and left the place. This shawerma shop gets a 1 out of 5 rating in my book. This means I will never eat there again and would never ever recommend it to anyone. Its the eat and die (kol oo mout) type of place. On the way back to the office I passed behind Salhiya in that small alley way. I love that strip since its quiet and empty. Thats when I took a picture of the JW Marriott sign. I really find it ugly I dont know why. Kinda looks cheap compared to the rest of the building. Maybe if they went with a metallic look or something, I mean it couldn't have come out worst then this cheap plastic look it has now. At first I thought this was just a temporary sign until they made a better one but its been on for a while now and there is no sign they will change it.
