Al-Kout to host in­no­va­tive lo­cal, global food con­cepts

Kuwait Times - - WHAT’S ON -

From fast to ca­sual to fine din­ing, Al-Kout - the largest wa­ter­front re­tail and leisure des­ti­na­tion in Kuwait -will em­brace a mix of in­ter­na­tional and new-to-mar­ket brands com­ple­ment­ing the di­verse mix of re­tail­ers al­ready signed on 35 re­gional and in­ter­na­tional F&B brands in­clud­ing 11 home grown din­ing con­cepts will cater to visi­tors of dif­fer­ent taste, with mouth-wa­ter­ing menus that are guar­an­teed to de­light the eyes as well as the taste-buds.

With home­grown din­ing con­cepts and sus­tain­ably-sourced food wit­ness­ing greater de­mand among cus­tomers more in­ter­ested in au­then­tic­ity and a healthy life­style. One of the home­grown brands ca­ter­ing to the mar­ket de­mand is Poele, a French based culi­nary con­cept, us­ing all fresh in­gre­di­ents that are care­fully sourced from sup­pli­ers on the same day, and cus­tom­ized to suit spe­cial cus­tomer re­quests. Poele is more than just an av­er­age eatery: known in French for the tra­di­tion­ally cop­per fry­ing pan, Poele is a din­ing haven, where art and food col­lide.

For Chi­nese food lovers there’s China Gar­den, a lo­cal con­cept which puts a lot of em­pha­sis on qual­ity us­ing only the fresh­est in­gre­di­ents avail­able in the mar­ket. It is a con­cept that was de­vel­oped by two young Kuwaiti men who were ea­ger to bring an au­then­tic Chi­nese ex­pe­ri­ence to the lo­cal mar­ket where they felt it was lack­ing. Another re­fined con­cept set to open is Life with Ca­cao, a fine din­ing restau­rant and dessert des­ti­na­tion that is renowned for us­ing only the finest and fresh­est home­grown in­gre­di­ents in its culi­nary cre­ations as per world-class stan­dards. Life with Ca­cao is the place to en­joy a hearty break­fast, grat­i­fy­ing lunch or din­ner or sim­ply the best end­ing to any meal: a mouth­wa­ter­ing ar­ray of desserts.

Seafood lovers will find their par­adise in Erza­lat Al-Seef. The name of the restau­rant lit­er­ally means ‘shore­line cot­tage’ in ref­er­ence to the place where tra­di­tional tide fish­er­men used to rest in dur­ing the tides’ ebb and flow, and their nets to fill up with the sea’s bounty. Erza­lat Al-Seef is a truly au­then­tic in­ter­pre­ta­tion of tra­di­tional life in Kuwait and is tai­lored to re­vive a unique ex­pe­ri­ence of Kuwait’s and Gulf her­itage in a con­tem­po­rary at­mos­phere. This fine din­ing venue presents a rich a la carte menu of tra­di­tional and seafood cui­sine and fo­cuses on fresh fish and seafood. Din­ers can also en­joy their fa­vorite seafood dishes grilled in the tra­di­tional “Masqouf” way - the first of its kind in Kuwait.

Other din­ing con­cepts set to open in­clude Burg­er­holic, Karak Gho­lam, Crepe Af­faire, Abou Jassem, Gonuts Donuts, Five Guys, Arby’s, Tri­an­gle, Dip & Dip, Cop­per Chim­ney, PF Chang’s, Vapi­ano, Wok­dojo, Wendy’s and IHOP. Chris­tian Wistrom, Gen­eral Man­ager Leas­ing, GLA Man­age­ment, said: “As the new Al-Kout Mall gears up for its open­ing, the in­tro­duc­tion of these brands will cater to the dis­cern­ing tastes of the di­verse, cos­mopoli­tan cus­tomers in Kuwait, who al­ways de­mand the best, the lat­est and the most in­no­va­tive F&B con­cepts.

The sign­ing with 35 brands comes close on the heels of un­prece­dented leas­ing mo­men­tum that has en­abled the ad­di­tion of many highly-de­sir­able din­ing out­lets to AlKout. Led by our cus­tomer’s choices, we have made the new Al-Kout Mall home to in­no­va­tive Kuwaiti F&B con­cepts, and wel­come oth­ers to con­sider Al-Kout Mall to en­sure that we of­fer unique ex­pe­ri­ences that dif­fer­en­ti­ate our over­all of­fer­ing. We are con­fi­dent our cus­tomers will en­joy these new ex­pe­ri­ences along with the shop­ping, en­ter­tain­ment, cin­ema, and yacht­ing ex­pe­ri­ences all avail­able at Al-Kout.”
