Food Tasting: Angelato Bakery (Part 1)

The other day my cousin was invited to a private food tasting and she was kind enough to DRAG me along with her. It was a food tasting for this new gelato-bakery that is based here in Kuwait. Well let me get something straight I am a BIG FAN of ice-cream and gelato so I can be biased here :P. No, don’t worry I’ll try and give my honest opinion. Angelato is a bakery that opened recently in Burj Jassem, all their GOODS are freshly made using natural ingredients. I enjoyed most of their LOVELY deserts and I meet some WONDERFUL people. So let’s get started and let me show you their ART!

This post is going to be split into 2 parts, the first part I will be talking about the dessert that I’ve tried and my opinion about them. On the second part, I will be showing you the display of their products. On the second part you’ll be able to see an AMAZING BLOGER that I’ve meet!

Angelato’s logo

My diploma is in Business Management, and a great deal of my studies was contracted on how logos are created. So it’s only fair for my INTELAGNCE that I do comment about their logo :P. First I would like to mention that I LOVE the PLAY on words, mixing the word “angle” with “gelato”, and then it gives us “Angelato”. The BEST thing about this name is that NO letter from both words had to be removed, just bring them both together and there you GO! Plus I love the fact the ANGLE is holding an ice-cream cone, or should I say a GELATO cone? :p

Now lets go on with the YUMMY stuff!

"Left:

I really enjoyed both of these cakes they were SUPER yummy. The carrot cake was very moist and the flavor was AMAZING. I liked how in the middle it had some raisins (and I don’t really like raisins in my food) but they were so tender that they felt as if they were the real fruit. So if you’re not a raisin fan YOU’LL still love this one. When the Lavender doom was first served is a bit hard, well because it was in the FREZZER! As it sat out for a few minutes the texture was GREAT! This cake had more of a chewy feel to it, and when you reach the middle of the doom there is a SUPRISE chocolate mousse waiting for you!

Lemongrass Pink Velvet

Lemongrass Pink Velvet

This MARVELOUS cake brought a whole new concept and taste to the pastry industry! The combination of the lemongrass mousse with the SUPER-SUPER moist raspberry cake, gives an explosion to your taste buds. The sourness of the lemongrass with the sweetness of the raspberry is just MIND BLOWIG! The texture of both the cake and mousse are just GREAT! The mousse didn’t make the cake soggy
(which is the problem with most cakes that have mousse). This was my FAVOURITE cake that I’ve tried!

Affgado

Affgado

This is their SIGNATURE drink, it’s a shot of espresso with a drizzling of chocolate. I have to tell you that this is the best coffee I have ever tasted! The SMELL of it was wonderful and made me go to a dream where all I can see is COFFEE. I am a HUGE coffee person and I can’t tell if I’m drinking quality coffee or not, and this is QUALITY coffee no doubt. The flavour of the coffee would be strong at first then it settles in the mouth quite nicely. The bitterns of the coffee is sweetened by the dash of chocolate, yet not to sweet so that you can still taste your INCREDIBLE coffee.

Right: Rose Gelato-Macaroon

These macaroons aren’t filled with the traditional creams, its filled with LUSCIOUS gelatos. I personally ADORE any food that has rose in it, and I just LOVE the smell of rose water<3. This Macaroon did SATISFY my taste buds with the mouth-watering flavour. Not only that but the texture was super chewy and soft, just like how a DREAM macaroon should be. Sadly the coffee macaroon wasn’t as good and could have been better, both in taste and texture.

Vanilla Gelato with a Ginger Biscuit

Vanilla Gelato with a Ginger Biscuit

I’m not a big fan of ginger the taste to me is very unbearable. Then it came to this sweet gelato, its vanilla gelato with a ginger biscuit. The ginger biscuit was sweetened enough that the taste of the ginger itself was mild which I personally LOVED, and above I’m more a vanilla person then chocolate. Don’t get me wrong I still love my chocolate! ❤ So yah this was a great twist to things. The flavors came along very well and this would be one the most things I would recommend to others to try out.

I would like to give credit to my cousin Dalal that took the pictures for me. Thank you so much dear cousin <3. Go to the second part of the blog post to see their WONDERFUL display and the blogger that I meet. Press the link to go to Part 2.

Stay lovely,

The Breakfast Club!

Few weeks ago my family and I went out for breakfast. My cousin was telling us that we should go and try out this breakfast place that loads of people have been talking about. The place she was talking about and took us to was The Breakfast Club (Twitter link). To tell you the truth when we arrived my mum and I weren’t very thrilled, the location wasn’t the best. HOWEVER, the food made us forget about the location and just dream about AMAZING pancakes! Everything that they served was yummy!!

Bellow you’ll find pictures of the YUMMY food we had and Enjoyed!

Full Classic American Breakfast

This was my order; I love bacon, sausages and mushrooms. With this breakfast you can chose any style of eggs and my favorite it pouched. The mushrooms were SUPER juicy that I really liked. The bacon was tender and juicy yet crispy at the edges which to me made the PERFECT bacon. The sausage was not that great, I didn’t like the taste of it which is sad because I LOVE sausages. I can honestly say that the hash-browns that came with breakfast was the BEST hash-browns I’ve had! The eggs seemed odd to me, for one thing they were really white on the outside. I’ve never seen poached eggs like this :p, but I LOVED them they weren’t over cooked and still a bit runny inside (which I love) and I can tell that they added vinegar to the boiling water because the taste was in the eggs which was GREAT!

Fluffy Pancakes!

The name says it ALL! YES these pancakes are the must fluffiest of pancakes that I have ever eaten. You can see it on my brothers face and his reaction towards them :D. I would go back again and again and MORE just to have these pancakes. I keep dreaming about day and nights wanting to eat them at any time. So don’t say I didn’t WARN you these pancakes are VERY ADDICTIVE! 😀  They aren’t only fluffy but moist too and had great texture to them. Most pancakes tend to be dense, but these weren’t AT ALL. Credits go to my cousin Dalal that took this picture. ❤

20121205-224121.jpg

Waffles with Vanilla ice-cream

These waffles are YUMMY. I like how they are a bit crispy on the outside and chewy inside. When come to you they are still warm and have and AMAZING smell. I promise you, you’ll love these waffles. I even thought it was very considerate of them to put that many berries with the waffles <3. Most places would just put a couple or a few, but not the Breakfast Club they give you a hand FULL.

After eating all the YUMMY food with my family, I had to give the restaurant a BIG hug!<3

My Fast DAY Look

Today after uni my mum and I went out for a late breakfast to spend some quality time together <3. She took me to Fauchon (at 360 Mall Kuwait) and after that we went for a little shopping spree. At the cafe my mum ordered the English Breakfast, and I ordered the Fauchon Breakfast. After that mum wanted to buy some clothes for work and I helped her to pick out some stuff (I’m such a LOVELY DAUGHTER!) :D. For that, my mum got me a top from Ted Beaker where I will be showing in a later blog!

 

The Fauchon Breakfast

I really enjoyed this breakfast! It had many of my favorite things; fruits, poached eggs, smoked turkey (it originally came with smoked salmon, but I don’t really like salmon), a variety of pastries and jam, I LOVE JAM! This somewhat of a healthy breakfast well compared to what I usually eat. It was filled with YUMMINES! ❤

Chocolate and Macaroon in Kuwait

As I mentioned in my earlier post “Going out with Friends” (check it out!) that my friends and I went to Chocolate and Macaroon for snacks. We ordered food and we shared them. It was the third time that I have tried their food. The first two times I went was for dinner and I never tried the desserts. Yesterday when I was there, IT WASTHE FIRST TIME I TRIED THEIR DESSERTS!

This what we ordered yesterday

As you can see in the picture above on the right top to bottom we ordered; Saronah which is a brownie topped with strawberry cheesecake and Volcano which is a chocolate cake filled with hot chocolate sauce.

On the left of the picture from top to bottom we ordered; Chicken Creaser Salad, Big Story Fries which is French fries with grilled beef hotdog slices with their homemade special cream cheese-mayo-ketchup and their Mr. Mini Cheese Burger.

From the desserts, I personally preferred the Saronah over the Volcano. I liked the sweet and sourness of the cheesecake, I didn’t really taste the chocolate in the Volcano it tasted very mild chocolate. Although it was milk-chocolate, to me it tasted more like white chocolate. On the other hand, compared to other chocolate cakes that are filled with chocolate sauce it was very light. I might be a bit biased, because I like cheesecake more than I do chocolate cake.

The food tasted really good, it was well presented. I liked the chicken in the Chicken Creaser Salad it was very tender, and I liked the fact that it was lightly spiced with salt and paper for the salad. The Big Story Fries was something new to me, when we first ordered it, I didn’t know it contained hotdogs (which it wasn’t a problem). I liked the cheese that was on top of it and that fact that it pink made it look interesting. The Mr. Mini Cheese Burger was THE BEST BURGER; I was shocked that such a small burger can be so juicy and yummy. It was my favourite! 😀

Godive MY JEWEL CHOCLATES!

Do I love chocolate? Well yah I kind of do, but I am not a big chocoholic, I enjoy the occasion chocolate bar or chocolate cake. However, when it comes to ice-cream I would prefer vanilla because it has a mild flavour and it’s not too heavy. When it comes to cakes or cupcakes I love it more when it’s a moist vanilla cake then chocolate. What’s wired is that I like red-velvet cake more than chocolate cake, when red-velvet is just chocolate cake WITH RED DIY! Talk about sociology?!

On the other hand, when it comes to rich-EXPENSIVE chocolate I say look no further because Godiva is here. Oh I remember that day when I tried my first Godiva chocolate, it was when they opened their second store in Kuwait at 360 Mall and my mum got me a dark chocolate bar (dark chocolate is my favourite) that had raspberry filling. The first bite was haven throughout and around me! I could say that within that moment the world problems have been solved in my mind! As they say the rest became history. Today when I went out for breakfast with my Aunt she got me some Godiva chocolate because she knows my dyeing love FOR IT!

Godiva Choclate ❤

In Kuwait Godiva can be found at two either malls; 360 Mall and Al Fanar Mall.

My Breakfast-Morning Look

Today I went out with one of the most amazing people I know. Her and I just got to know each other recentaly and she has became like an Aunt to me! When her and I are together we talk about everday life, what books we have read, what artits do we like, what countries we cant wait to visit, politices and so much more. I enjoy my time with her she has an amzing point of view towards life and she is alway Optmistic about life! Today she invited me for breackfast at Foushon that is located at 360 Mall and we had a blast. After that she took to  Godiva (because she know’s how much I LOVE IT!) and she got me some chocolate.

The “summer-breakfast-morning” look. I tried to wear something that was comfy and free to move in, and the mission was accomplished!

What I am wearing in this picture:

  • Headband: Claire’s
  • Sunglass: Vogue
  • Earrings: Ralph Lauran
  • Top: Forever21
  • Belt: Vintage from my mum (closer picture down)
  • Skirt: Zara
  • Bag: Mulberry
  • Slippers: Hermes
  • Watch: Rolex

 

The earrings were a present from my friend on my 21st birthday! The bet was given to me from my mum; she had since the late 80s or early 90s

 

As I mentioned above we had breakfast at Fauchon, what I didn’t mention on who yummy it was. I really enjoy their breakfast, and with the right company it will be the BEST!

The “English Style Breakfast”

The English Style Breakfast at Fauchon comes with; backed beans, sautéed mushrooms, grilled cherry tomatoes, eggs of your choice (I was thinking between pouched eggs or scrambled, but I went with scrambled :P), hush-brown, veal sausages and turkey bacon. It was a really YUMMY breakfast, if you haven’t tried it then you should. The best part of Faushon breakfast is that when you order you food you choose from any of their fresh juices with a cup of any of your favourite hot drink. OF COURSE THEY AREN’T MIXED TOGETHER! 😛

If you would like to know more about Fauchon, and it’s locations arond the world here’s its website www.fauchon.com

The BIG Eid Breakfast :D

When Ramadan ends, Eid comes (okay so that was obvious!). What do we miss during Ramadan? Yah that healthy meal of the day BREAKFAST! I hope you all enjoyed your breakfast with your families.

Our breakfast was small and simple this year. We had pancakes (my baby brothers love it), boiled eggs (healthy much?), foul (now I’ve missed that, but too much is not good, if you know what I mean after all I’m going to see family later n :p) and of course that plat of cheese, vegetables and olives. Coffee is a must for me in my mornings (afternoon I’d go with teas) and that glass of iced-water to speed up my motablizum!

Stay lovely,
