What was all the fuss about! I kept reading BAD reviews about Napket... very negative ones! I really wanted to try it! And I did.. earlier today, and guess what? I LOVED IT!!!!!
It started of when I was shopping around in the Avenues with my sister and I was telling her of all the bad reviews I have been reading about Napket - Kuwait on facebook, when she suggested that we should try it... and knowing me, the food lover that I am, I said "Sure! Lets go!"
The atmosphere was inviting, a neck-turner kinda thing! The interiors were fabulous and very edgy.. and I like edgy!!! Its modern meet antique! The floors, unfinished ceilings, chandeliers, and mouth watering display of food! It was all good! I ordered penne pasta arrabiata with basil while my sister ordered a salad with basmati rice and spaghetti with mushroom sauce and chicken (and I cant recall all of the additions she asked for... shes a pasta mania person, to say the least)... then we screened the chalkboard juice menu. I picked orange/ginger, and she went for pineapple! All good
Since the weather is getting nicer in the evening we sat out in the terrace! It was lovely, and busy! Not annoying busy... a good busy! Music background and a fountain running... with chatters here and there...
Our food arrived, but our drinks got mixed up! Nevertheless, the matter was solved shortly after, and the waiter kept checking on us... and asked as a couple of times if we needed anything or if everything was going ok!
My penne was yummy... spicy, but I am not a good scale when it comes to spicy food since I cannot handle the "Rooster" or tobasco! LOL... I tried my sister's salad, and it was amazing! She also said her food was but I was to full to try it! I asked her to try mine since she can handle spiciness better than me and she thought it was just fine :-) Its an 8 out of 10 for me... 2 points off for their high price list and the juice mix up ;-P So I am sure there is an area for improvement!
I think Napket is a new concept... a cut above any ordinary coffee shops here in Kuwait! A boutique kinda coffe shop that serves fast food! You know what I mean? Pricey? Yes... but other than that... I loved it, and I am definitely going back soon!
