Villa Al Fayrouz : Birthday Girl and Lavender phase

A couple of weeks ago, a very dear friend of ours celebrated her "Happy b'day" and she took us out to this really awesome arabic restaurant for dinner.
Now. what makes a restaurant awesome?
In my opinion - Ambiance, Food , and great company ( that you've gotto bring along! )
and, Villa Fayrouz was awesome because it scored 5 on 5 on all of my categories! well done ma boy! 

We're a photographer's delight, aren't we?

To start of with, the ambiance was just perfect with amazing seating and table arrangements, large windows over looking the busy, fancy car spangled Gulf road. Lighting was reminiscent of old arab glamor and well, it was just uuummmmmmmm ! ;)

Birthday Girl

The company was unmatched. Reema is Rubens childhood best friend.And Ruben is my husband. She's cute and sweet and ever so understanding of my husbands naughtiness and such. Just what I need! :D
That's 1 too many family introductions for today, so let's now move on to the food.

We ordered Potato harra (potato prepared with garlic and coriander since Reema is a vegetarian) that came with it's own little warmer ,

  Fayrouz special (Lamb with rice and gravy) , juicy and succulent.

Sheesh tawk ( common arabic chicken grill ) that came with some well salted, crispy fat fries and greens,

 Tabouleh (popular arabic green salad) ,

and OF COURSE no arabic course is complete without Hummus (remember "Don't mess with the ZOHAN" ? : D )and khaboos (arabic bread / pita bread), I could have just this and have a good night's sleep. well, i have done that. you know, lazy days.. right?
AND mint lemonade , a recent favorite of mine!

Let me tell you that the food was absolutely scrumptious! fresh and hot and meaty and soft and flavor laden! Fit for a sheikh! :D

To make most of the arabic dinner, we also ordered for a couple of sheesha's - tuffah (apple flavour) and nana (mint flavour), which turns my otherwise normal husband into a chimney!

Well, all in all the night was one to remember, the lady is a year older, friends , food, sheesha and endless conversations dating back to pulling-pranks-on-your-teacher days are definitely one of my favorite ways of spending an evening!

Now I cant step out without making a special mention of my outfit.
Nope! can't do it! I'll keep it short, but I've gotto do it.

SO! I'm in a pastel phase right now, digging out everything pastel from my shallow closet. Did some layering to create interest, pulled on my white jeans to keep it feeling light and fresh (it's hot as an oven in Kuwait), some arm swag, floral flats and YAY! there, I kept it short! :D

So that's it for today love! If you live in Kuwait, Do checkout Villa Al Fayrouz, and let me know how it went.
btw, what's the naughtiest thing you did back in the day? :)
