One of the most frequently asked questions we hear from our friends and family back home is: “What’s it like in Kuwait?” Well, when it comes to ordering food . . . . it’s awesome!
There is a website here called Talabat, where you can order food, and have it delivered, from any restaurant in Kuwait City. The delivery fee is only like $1.00 with a minimum order of only about $2.00! It is so convenient to order dinner from your computer as you sit on your couch, knowing that you can order food from hundreds of restaurants! You can order things like pizza, pasta, cheeseburgers, or even a fancy multi-course dinner. We’ve had friends order a dozen chocolate chip cookies from one restaurant and then a dish of ice cream from a different restaurant! Last week, I tried ordering Taco Bell and it was delivered in about 15 minutes. It is such a nice service they have here, but definitely dangerous on my waste line!
Just about every restaurant here delivers, including the major chain restaurants like McDonalds, Subway, Smash Burger, KFC, and even Caribou Coffee! Even sit-down restaurants like Olive Garden, TGI Fridays, Applebees, and Mais Alghanim deliver.
