When I first visited sliders station, I remember telling my brother that this must be a joke. Why were we pulling up infront of a place equivellent to a plaza? That was battered up and not at all the polished places we are used to. What was the big deal? Why wasn’t this place accommodating Kuwait’s snobby setting?
I walked into the miniature burger bar with no expectations, to be dazzled with the matte nature of the concrete floors, the vintage looking blackboard wall, and the industrial nature of the drawings on it; describing the mechanics of the burger bar. The interior designer clearly has a grasp of what real modernism is. A place that is comfortable, with its functions exposed to be its ornamentation.
Grey as it is, the only decoration clear to the eye, is the view of the colorful food. Some being served at their table, and running on the trail with anxious people waiting on the other side of it to get their hands on the grub.
Knowing that sliders station was a part of the burger boutique family, I knew that was going to have good food. But the sliders astonished me even more. I can’t begin to describe what the Wagyu portabello slider tastes like. Its rosemary sauce dripping away, drenching the bun with the juices of the tender Wagyu beef. and ancho tappas starter is to day for
Satifying my passion for red meat further, were the sirloin lollipops which are seasoned with black pepper, teamed up with a creamy sauce and zestier than ever.
Crispy skinny fries are always my choice of side, which also can be substituted by their juicy fat ones, or the potato dumplings, but I prefer the crispy skinny ones with the juicy burgers.
Introducing a new kind of chocolate dessert, a pudding that is basic and with chocolate that has the right amount of sweetness. Although teamed up with a scoop of Vanilla ice cream, I prefer eating it alone. Nice and warm, but heavy enough to share with the whole table.
“Sliders”, I will commend you for your good food, amazing design decisions and also, giving Kuwaiti youth a new reason to go to the rougher part of our city. Attracting more attention than ever from people all over the gulf to visit what’s now called “The strip”. Now that’s Kuweating.
For those who think there’s a parking problem, there really isn’t. Just park in the lot behind the strip, its always empty and its just a two minute walk
