Fittingly named for a restaurant that serves wholesome, homemade Kuwaiti cuisine, ‘Hanhum’ is an old Kuwait greeting, spoken by a person who enters a room full of people enjoying a meal. Those dining reply by saying ‘winta minhum’, which means they are inviting the greeter to join them for the meal. Watch the fascinating bread-making process of the The Tanour bread and sample some of it too! The main event at Hanhum is their unforgettable Machbous Dijay, a Kuwaiti specialty consisting of Kuwaiti spiced chicken, served with basmati rice. So if you’re looking for a contemporary take on traditional Kuwaiti cuisine you can’t go wrong at Hanhum. Let’s not forget its ritzy location at Al-Hamra Luxury Center which offers a quiet yet upscale recluse during the national holidays!
