Who hasn’t tried the Bahraini halwa and just fell in love with it? I’m guessing none. It’s one of the best arabic sweets around, especially when it’s from AlShuwaiter. It is one of those “must bring some back to my family and friends” whenever we’re in Bahrain. INM took some pictures when he was in Bahrain a couple of weeks ago to share them with you guys. He said that they prepare the halwa infront of you and pack it on demand. The Halwa ranges from KD1.5 to KD3.5, according to it’s kind and the amount of nuts in it.

Thanks INM & ANM

    My favourite part is waiting for them to bring the big pots of halwa in that little aluminum cart, o its piping hot, o its smell would be wafting over to you… then they would give you some to taste… then pour it o pack it up for u…

    If u go in the morning, u can grab several boxes o fly back in the same day at night… the box would be HOT o when u taste it by night it is nothing like any other 7alwa you have ever eaten before… for one thing its liquidish

    O ako wa7ed weld il jassim ham il 7alwa maltah a7la min shwai6er
    o one of the showai6rat does something called 7alwa malakiya its not red it is yellow o they pour it in little cupcake cups o u have to order it one day in advance… it is another level of taste all together!!!

    I really believe bahraini 7alwa is like jelly! if u really like 7alwa .. OMANI 7alwa beats bahraini 7alwa by a MILE! try to get one when u go to oman and ask for “Barkaa” 7alwa specifically .. u will see the difference immediately πŸ™‚

    A friend went to Bahrain and brought me some halwa (I live and work in Qatar). I LOVE IT. But I’d really like to find the nutritional information on it….even if it were just the calories! Any ideas?? πŸ™‚
