Down & Dirty in Shuweikh

At 5:50 am it looked dustier outside then it was at night, I was wide awake since I passed out early the day before. Got a call from Monichum at 6:34 am, we couldn’t ride but we wanted to do something. We were wondering what was open at the time, he ask me if I wanted to eat breakfast. Where to go was the question on my mind, he suggested somewhere in Shuweikh.

Monichum’s statement, “Its not the cleanest place but you are going to love it, just let me order and don’t make any sudden movements”

Drove over and picked up Monichum who took two showers for some reason. We headed towards Canada Dry Street since we were on the way to Cafeteria Shuweikh which is right on Canada Dry street. Their opening hours are from 5:00 am to 12:00 am everyday which is insane, they are open longer then any Starbucks.

The place is a lot cleaner then I expected, but it is close the living quarters of the street cleaners. There was the odd person here and there, but everyone who was there knew exactly what they wanted. We stood out because we were wearing jeans, and I was carrying a huge camera and snapping away. They asked me if I worked for a newspaper or a magazine, or if it was like a instant camera like a “Bolaroid”. They were very nice about all the pictures I was taking, and they told me to take a picture of the kitchen. The owner came out and told us that he won’t offer us free food for a good review and started laughing. The atmosphere is very nice, the food is really good, I loved the fatayer and zaatar. What a start to a funny morning, and then there was a few hardware places that I wanted to go to, things just kept on adding up from there.

A guy who is just trying to enjoy life!


  1. Shuweikh is one the places I refuse to go in Kuwait but I won’t deny that there’s a certain charm in it. I used to love to go there and shop at a place called ICE. Romantics (a furniture store) used to be my favorite.
