Salem AlMubarak Street, Salmiya always have been favorite place of me due to lot of cafes and restaurant, plus every year Hala February event attaché the new unforgettable moments with same street.
Last week KUWAIT UPTO DATE was invited by SMASHBURGER (By Kayan Restaurant) on its opening of new branch on same road. So by this way I got one more reason to have walked of my favorite street. It is situated in corner of same building of SUBWAY, beside Block-2, Salem Al Mubarak Street, Salmiya, Kuwait.
I really have liked their tables setting under the awesome lights arrangement, 40 sets of tables are outside and almost 14 sets inside, due to its location there are two entries to keep the discipline in flow of customers.
Well my purpose was only to fulfill my promise to visit their branch but as I hold the MENU, It changed my mind and decided to place order J, The most interesting thing is what that their every branch all over the world has its own menu as per country, state, city and taste of people.
Hereby I would like to say thanks to Marketing Manager Jillian D.Marshall and C.E.O Mr. Khalid Hajjar for their time with me and they nicely explained that why should you come to SmashBurger
“The uniqueness of a Smashburger starts even before we get to the smashing, when we shape fresh 100% Certified Halal Angus Beef into plump meatballs.
When you place your order, we spring into action. We paint the grill with real butter and perfectly place the meatball. And when the moment is right – smash! (Point of interest: we invented the smashing tool ourselves and it’s so fresh it doesn’t even have a name yet. We just call it the smashing tool.)
We then add a dash of our secret spice blend while the smash caramelizes the beef, creating a sear that locks in the juices as no other cooking method can. The result is a burger that’s more tender and flavorful than anybody else’s.
Add the freshest toppings, flavorful sauces and a butter-toasted artisan bun, and the Smashburger is now a work of smashed-to-order perfection. That’s true whether you choose one of our signature creations or invent your very own, right on the spot.
Now that you know what goes into a Smashburger, you’ll understand why we need a couple minutes to bring it out. And why we say Smashburger is smashed fresh, served delicious!”

The traffic jams in Shuwaikh and other areas, particularly along the roads leading to the First Ring Road project, have not only made driving a frustrating experience but also turned it into a hot button issue in the wake of construction works that started on the Ghazali Road.
The Ministry of Public Works (MPW) held a press conference yesterday morning to brief the media on the development and infrastructure projects and the progress being made in the implementation. Engineer Sheikh Abdulaziz Al- Sabah, Director of the Road Engineering Department at the MPW said although people were blaming the ministry for the chaos on the roads, yet the projects were being delayed because of certain unresolved issues involving some institutions regarding completion of the Jamal Abdul Nasser Development Project and the Jahra Road Development Project. “We are not getting enough land to execute the project and those in charge of some institutions are not cooperating with us. For instance, the boundary wall of the Kuwait University is an obstacle in our work. We can temporarily shift the wall, and later relocate it at its original spot. Also, the Ministry of Communication, Fire Department, and the Ministry of Electricity and Water are not communicating with us,” he pointed out.
On his part, John Andrew Faulkner, Project Director of the Jamal Abdul Nasser Development Project said that the situation may hopefully improve soon with the cooperation of the Kuwait Port Company, which is involved in the traffic flow. “They will reduce traffic in this area by imposing restrictions on heavy vehicles passing through the congested area during the day time, which is between 6:00 am and 7:00 pm. Also, they should open the Port’s gate leading to the Airport Road to end the jam,” he told the Kuwait Times. According to him, the motorists will notice improvement during the upcoming phases of the project. “The project is slated to be completed in June 2016, but most of it will be completed by 2014 which will bring relief from the traffic jams.
Even though the MPW announced the planned construction activity, still the motorists complained that adequate notice was not given. Many drivers try to find a shorter route to escape the jam, only to land up in another jam. Many roads are affected due to the Ghazali constructions,” explained Faulkner.
Patience “Drivers have to keep more patience and should leave home earlier to reach their destination. The temporary detours do cost the drivers more time than usual, but they will become used to it. Also, we assure the motorists that all temporary detour stretches would be of the same length as the original road stretch till the project is completed. We need the cooperation of the institutions involved so that the contracted work is not delayed,” he further said.
The new development has been planned keeping in mind the expected growth in traffic volumes over the next 50 years. “The project would not be affected by the planned metro project, though in my opinion the metro needs to have parking lots in different areas,” he concluded. Sheikh Abdulaziz Al-Sabah highlighted the fact that the MPW is not delaying the work and said could prove it on the basis of documents. “We thank the Municipality and the Ministry of Health for their cooperation, but most other institutions are not cooperating and this causes delay.
The Ministry of Interior demanded that we ensure compliance on 13 observations but we are unable to comply with all of them due to the obstacles that we face with institutions which are not communicating. We will frequently hold press conferences to inform people about the situation,” he noted. Also engineer Ahmad Al-Bahar, Head of the Execution Department of Highways, spoke about the delay on Yarmour Bridge project and the fact that water pipes caused a fault in a part of the project. The MPW is working to fix this problem. He also said that the execution of Sheikh Jaber Bridge project will start in the first quarter of next year.
Arabian Gulf Road, the Fourth Ring Road and the Salem Al-Mubarak Street has been declared as most dangerous road for pedistrians.
Some of Kuwait’s busiest roads, including the Arabian Gulf Road, the Fourth Ring Road and the Salem Al-Mubarak Street, were identified in a recent study as being prone to traffic accidents and hit and run incidents in the country for reasons that include lack of modern methods to protect pedestrian safety.
