Chef – A Movie That Makes You Hungry

A chef who loses his restaurant job starts up a food truck in an effort to reclaim his creative promise, while piecing back together his estranged family.

One Hell Of A Cast:

  • Jon Favreau
  • Sofia Vergara
  • John Leguizamo
  • Scarlett Johansson
  • Robert Downey Jr.
  • Dustin Hoffman

You would really have to do pretty badly to screw up a movie with this cast line up, half of them from the Marvel Universe and the other half are great actors. I love any movie with Jon Favreau, one reason is because he is Iron Man’s Body Guard / Driver, and the other reason is he brought Iron Man to life and with that came all the Marvel Movies behind his success. This movie is a different kind of movie for from Jon Favreau and if you want to watch a fun movie with great characters and really good looking food then this is it, I honestly can’t recommend it enough. Its got all the pieces of a great movie with a deep and fun story, and Jon Favreau makes you want to go into the kitchen and do something crazy with the food. And don’t watch the movie hungry, you will end craving everything you see on screen.

Q Cafe @ The Village

The Village has turned into one of the hot spots in Kuwait, and so many restaurants have opened up with a few more to go. The place is always packed but one of the hidden gems is Q Cafe and I think it is the best restaurant there by far. Its tucked in the back and just recently they have expanded the parking there which is much better but still there are a huge amount of people going their daily. The atmosphere of the place is trendy and classy, and the outdoor seating is great for when the weather was sunny and chilly, now its a little bit too hot.

The Cuisine is an Italian Fusion which is very interesting with a lot of items to choose on the menu. By far their choices of pasta items are fantastic and I loved their Gnocchi and especially their risotto. Their Chinese Chicken Salad is out of this world, I have picked it up a few times to go because I honestly love it. You can tell that they put a lot of effort into their food and really do work on it, I’m one very picky person and I have tried a lot of items on their menu and love them all. Their burgers are pretty good, I wasn’t expecting it to be from an Italian Fusion place but still it was good.

Their desert is something out of this world, I’m not a desert person but the items they have are worth trying. Whenever I go there my diet goes out the window I make sure to spend a bit more time at the gym if I know I’m going to pass by Q Cafe. I have been there probably 5 times this month and I can’t get enough of it.
