I heard and read a lot of raving reviews and praises from bloggers and friends alike about The Early Bird, and wanted to go there for a long time now but the restaurant’s location and it’s opening times didn’t make it easy for me to try it out sooner, but thanks to bu9ale7’s persistence, we finally managed to pay a visit this weekend.
We wouldn’t have found the place hadn’t our friend been prepared and knew the directions. The place is hidden. It won’t be easy to find, I know I wouldn’t have found it if I were the driver. Anyway, They have a menu-full of breakfast dishes, ranging from the usual omelets and sandwiches to waffles, pancakes and french toasts to the more unfamiliar biscuit & sausage gravy, which is one of their specialties.
We ordered 3 kinds of omelets: The Spanish omelet with hash browns on the side, The ham & cheese omelet and The sausage & backon with cheese omelet with potatoes on the side. 2 French toasts, 2 black coffees, 1 hot milk, 1 orange juice.
enforcing my usual rule “no touching the plates till I’m done taking pictures” was a bit harder than usual this time around. Everything looked delicious and smelled amazing.
^The french toasts were the highlight of the visit to me, and the maple syrup…. I could’ve gorged it down lo mo il7aya.
^The hash browns and sausages on the side. The sausages tasted different. It had this very familiar kind of spice that I just couldn’t name.. I think it’s meramiya (I don’t know it’s english name).
^The spanish omelet. Spicy and full of color.
^This is it, the whole place.
^We were 4 and ordered lots of food. Very reasonable price.
^The people running the show. First from the left was our waitress, then the co-owner/waiter, then finally the owner/chef.
Ok, My opinion about the place. I wanna mention the Bad first:
1-The place is tiny. No, not just tiny, it’s the tiniest restaurant I’ve ever eaten in, (well Wok Master was tinier, but then again wok master is not designed to have customers eating inside). There were 4 places for the customers to sit; two 4-persons table, one 6-persons table and one 2-persons table. We were 4 and shared the 6 persons table with 2 other guys (Which I’m sure were uncomfortable sitting next to us while we’re taking pictures of everything).
2-The location is very hard to find and is over 25 minutes drive from home and 40 minutes drive from the chalet.
1-The food is fantastic.
2-The waiters are the best. They were incredibly friendly and nice.
3-Their prices are very reasonable.
4-They have the best maple syrup in ALL OF THE LAND!
All in all, This is THE place to be for breakfast in Kuwait. Don’t miss out.
