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! From Baith Butat, filled with scrambled eggs, potatoes and vegetables, to Imsakhan, which is Tanour filled with chicken, sumac, pine nuts and a garlic sauce, or the sweet delicacy that is filled generously with Nutella. Don’t forget though, the main event at Hanhum is that 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.
Hanhum is located in the Café Court, on the first floor of Al-Hamra Luxury Center. For delivery call 2227 0234. Find them on Facebook: HanHumRestaurant, Twitter @Hanhum_Rest and Instagram @Hanhum_restaurant.
