We don't make it down there too often simply because we live in Fintas and it's a bit far and parking can be a challenge. But when we are downtown we usually pop by.

Great place to explore the local fare. Sneak into one of the allies to eat in one of the restaurants to have one of the best food experiences in Kuwait. Find everything you need for local shopping; spices, fish market, jewelry, fruits, dates, and everything else. Don't be shy, explore every twist and turn.

Truly a must-see place in Kuwait when the weather is good! A good walk, combining a traditional market with a bit of modern new talent, fresh local fruit and veggies and the best local grilled fish and or kebabs in town!!

A market with variety to choose from, in a cheaper price specially when you buy a dozen, you can even bargain with the seller
