Prime & Toast
Earlier today I went with my friend to grab a bite... she knew how much I love spaghetti bolognese and suggested we go to Prime & Toast. It was awesome!
We reached the restaurant at around 6:20pm and no one was in there, so we got their divine attention - very friendly staff I must say :-)
The ambiance was so calm and reminded me a lot of European style restaurants -trattorias- with A4 prints for menus, and awesome background music playing... which added to the atmosphere.
I had my regular mix of lemon, orange, and mint juice and spaghetti bolognese. Although I ordered half portion dish, it was still considerable amount of pasta and served family style. I am very picky when it comes to the sauce itself, the bolognese. I can tell you I was impressed with the taste (not better than my cooking :-P but still... it was awesome). There was this kind of balance between the beef that is cooked in the tomato sauce... The pasta was about right, not too soft and not sticky. I also loved that the sauce did not have large chopped onions that would ruin the flavor and make you miss out on the texture of the real taste! Did that make sense? It did to me! hehehehe! It is truly the BEST spaghetti bolognese in Kuwait!!
