@ Restaurant in Muharraq

The succulent chicken came marinated in yoghurt and lime real hot from the charcoal oven.


And the Turkish bread was thick, soft and warm.


Date palms lining the restaurant swayed in evening breeze. Somewhere inside the open courtyard, the gurgling of a fountain cold be heard between the infrequent silence of the kids. Bell rang several times from the kitchen counter keeping the boys on their toes.

Quinoa Salad with grilled chicken and sliced almonds was served first. Forgotten to take a snap… food sometimes makes the mind blank.

Middle-eastern cuisine with the mild herbs and spices, plenty of green leaves, oil-less breads and grilled meat could be undoubtedly the healthiest. However, most of my Bahraini friends say they prefer the hot, spicy Indian food.

Buick Eight Sedan 1950

Priced at US$1909 for the four-door model, Buick was poised to give Plymouth a serious jolt in terms of sales back in 1949. Portholes, the VentiPorts, are seen on the front fenders: three for Supers and Specials. Windshields for the Super and Roadsters were one-piece units. Buick’s long-stroke, valve-in-head “Fireball” straight-eights still had  of appeal to its patrons as against the short-stroke, V-8 ones of Oldsmobile and Cadillac. Spotted near Adliya Post Office was this model.
