It’s no secret that bite-sized portions are awesome. Knowing that their small, but mighty, tiny-burger place is a hit, Kuwait London Company (KLC) decided to expand Proper Sliders from one to three locations to serve a wider delivery range. For those of you who haven’t discovered this gem of a concept, let us be your guide to their gourmet sliders, sides and shakes. As a point of reference, the more people you go with/have over, the more sides you can devour guiltlessly – well, almost, but we’re not here to judge.
Having been to their quaint Mahboula location last year, this time we visited Proper Sliders in Shaab Al-Bahri’s Golden Street. A stone’s throw away from The Kitchen; you can’t possibly miss the fire-engine red umbrellas outside, or their ticket-stub signage. You can either get your food delivered to you, call them to prep the order as you make your way there to pick it up, or dine-in! We opted to dine-in to enjoy the location and take advantage of their outdoor seating area – the weather was beautiful! After carefully mulling over the menu, we finally settled on our selection.
What happens when you take three hungry bazaarites to a delicious burger place? We end up ordering everything we possibly can! And with that, we started with Proper Shakes before we even ordered our sides and sliders. Our shakes – delicious, creamy and properly thick – were Peanut Butter & Vanilla, Peanut Butter & Chocolate and Lotus. As we sipped on our shakes, our sliders and sides showed up. With a total of nine sliders, two sides, three shakes and a dessert, we had a superbly fulfilling meal.
For our sides, we went with the Proper Chili Fries and Proper Onion Rings. There’s something about Proper Sliders’ onion rings that make us sing with joy. The way they’re seasoned, battered and fried make for a perfect crunch with each bite. We ordered extra Smokey BBQ Sauce and extra Proper Sauce so we can fully indulge in the glory of the onion rings. As for the Proper Chili Fries, we devoured the entire thing in a flash! Melted cheese, chili beef and chopped jalapenos and onions topped with some Proper Mustard – the fries were golden and the perfect based for the chili.
Our Proper Sliders were glorious as always with their gourmet beef patties, tender chicken breasts and fresh-baked potato buns. Because each of us ordered three, we had slight variations of their offerings. Full disclosure, we all insisted on ordering their classic, The Proper Slider. There’s something about the classic flavors of a burger that’s always a win in all our books. And our other copy-cat order was the Proper Mushroom Slider, which is another classic mushroom and Swiss cheese combo that is absolutely perfect! For our other choices, one of us went for the Proper Spicy Chicken Slider which packed a punch and another went for the Proper Crispy Chicken Slider. But this bazaarite went for the Proper Grilled Chicken Slider, topped with an onion ring (because one can never have too many onion rings) and some Proper BBQ Sauce.
Thinking we were completely full, we spotted KLC’s fun-loving dessert: Chubby Balls. So we took the plunge and ended our review as we had started it, in decadence!
