Vegetarian restuarant in the city

I noticed this place a few times but never went in until yesterday. I wish I had tried it sooner? And now that I found it I will be going there more- It was really good.

It is close to the Heritage souk, Mubarikiyya, and behind this are some lovely antique and traditional shops.

Its a modest little place, but the ambeince in the place is really quite good. What struck me the most were the portraits of Mahatma Ghandi, and on each portrait was a small saying by him. His words of wisdom are so profound, very thought provoking if you internalize each one. Maybe that’s why I like the place, even though their food was great too, and very reasonably priced.

Quotes on the wall:

You must be the change you wish to see in the world- Ghandi

The weak can never forgive- Ghandi

An eye for an eye makes the world blind- Ghandi

My greatest weapon is mute prayer- Ghandi
Hatred can be overcome only by love-Ghandi

We ordered a paneer dish which is similar to ricotta cheese in a curry and a mushroom curry, both were outstanding. The bread was freshly made and soft and the watermelon juice was sweet (no added sugar) and yummy. My husband later ordered a masalah chai and in total our bill was about 5 KD altogether.

If you decide to venture out into the city, and especially to Mubarikiyya I highly recommend you stop by and have a bite.
