Dikakeen is a Kuwaiti fusion restaurant that plays with contemporary takes on traditional favorites. If you’re seeking the familiar taste of home cooking in a trendy upbeat environment, then you will love this whimsical restaurant filled with vintage Kuwaiti memorabilia, making Dikakeen a place where the past and present converge. Their meals come as shareable platters ready to be eaten with your hands or scooped with fresh bread that their baker prepares right it front of you. Some recipes are family secrets passed down from the owner’s mother, and some are original creations such as the infamous cheekily named dessert, “Coma Chocolate Pudding.” They have classics like shawarmas, falafels, kubba, and Mishaltit, with the option of adding a modern twist.
Dikakeen is located at The M2 in the Salhiya Complex, and in Jaber Al Ahmad Cultural Center. Hours of operation are from 9:00 a.m. to 10:00 p.m. For reservations, call 2299 6552 or 2206 1341.
