The best Mushakkal sandwich in Kuwait ?

Following one of my friend's recommendation some time ago, I checked out Al Sawaber restaurant . He claims they serve the best "Mushakkal" sandwich in Kuwait. Well, there's only one way to find out! For those of you not familiar with this sandwich, it's a soft roll stuffed with the following; Felafel/Filafil, French fries, fried eggplant, Tahina and salad.

So is it the best in Kuwait ? I liked it very much to be honest. The thing I liked about it was the way the roll was toasted and crispsy while the inside was soft and mushy coz I told them to go crazy with the Tahina. :)

They're located right between the KDD outlet and Sawaber Petrol pump on Hillali Street, Sawaber Area.

Hey are making me hungry, now.

Well every filafil joint will hav their own unique n special, either the filafils themsleves or the potatoes or the cauliflower additions n of course their own special samoons or buns.

We in the office used to like a Syrian's joint next to Jashanmal's in city....but he had to move out, coz the building was to be demolished. Dunno where or if he has re-started elsewhere....but we sure do miss him a lot.

Then there is Restaurant 99....on Soor street. 8/10 in our office like their's too. And of course.....I like the mushakils of GAD too.

Now I'm REALLY hungry.
