While my friend and I were walking around the Mubarkiah traditional souq few weeks ago, we spotted a very pretty looking restaurant. A well composed interior space and a good looking menu is all it took. Msayaan Restaurant's location was great as well. It was right at the beginning of the souq and in front of that "I Love You Kuwait" graffiti. We arrived early when the restaurant was still empty and I was able to take all the snaps below. I loved how they injected their brand and name into everything including adding an Arabic vowl "shadah" to the design of the chairs, the menu and the chair cushions " ّ ". The patterns on the walls were detailed. They were redrawn on the glass wall and the wooden fence as well, which gave a continuation to the design from the inside to the outside. I thought it was designed really nicely.
Let the ordering begin. Their menu was a little weird. I expected it to have more traditional Kuwaiti food, but it was eclectic with a selection of the most popular food people usually eat when they go out. I was hesitant with the food choices, but they all turned out really nice! My friend and I had the Shrimps In Pajama starter. I had the Shrimps Magluba, which was really nice. My friend had their Burg Trio and she loved it. The portions were on the small side so we had space for some dessert for the first time. The hot cookies with nutella and ice cream were so good. I can totally justify the calories in them.
If you are in the area make sure you visit!
