Dining Out: Souk Mubarakia

This is for Skunk – he recommended the outside restaurant at Souk Mubarakia, which also happens to be one of our favorite places to go.


Does anyone know of a restaurant around here with an old Kuwait theme – like where they have private small rooms where you sit on the floor, like a small majlis?

  2. Fonz – there are actual several restaurants, you can only tell them apart because the chairs and table differ in small ways. We have tried several, and found them all fairly good. The food is FRESH. We like the lively atmosphere.

  3. oooh nice!

    now youve got me wanting to head down there this weekend!

    i’ve been wondering about those old style sitting down kuwaiti restaraunts too. but i think fonzy’s right, they might not exist. the closest youmight come to them is at one of the 5 star hotels here whenthey put tents up,… but thats kinda cheating.

    it might be that the locals basically eat like that at home so when they go out they want something different. shame tho cos i’m sure if there was one liek that it would be packed.

  6. Skunk – There is one in Doha called The Majlis. It is, as you say, often packed. And locals also order out from there, huge huge amounts. Machboos! Grills! It was one of our favorite places to take out-of-town guests.

  10. Nahash – I think we have eaten at malik alsaj – I remember the sign. I am sorry to be so ignorant, but what is “saj?”
