Munich, Germany (P4)

Karlsplatz 

Munich, Germany (P1)





The city center is were one can find everything from shops, cafes, restaurants, department stores, supermarkets, the main underground station and more.  

We usually start at the main entrance of the Karlsplatz (Fountain) and walk our way through to the Marienplatz, Maximilianstrasse and even back to the apartment.



Many of the workers in the shops and cafes are Arabs and even Muslims. It was so easy to find Halal food and even praying area.

 Here are the department stores we came across in the area:


Hirmer is a department store that caters to men. It has a wide selection of casual to business attire, leather goods and accessories and even the plus size. Brands range from high-end to contemporary.


Galeria Kaufhof , a department store found across Germany. It caters to the whole family with medium priced products such as clothes, accessories, leather goods, home accessories, toys and more.



Oberpollinger, my personal favorite. A department store that caters to the whole family from fashion and lifestyle, beauty and care to restaurants. One can find many High-end brands such as Dior, Louis Vuitton, Prada, Ralph Lauren and much more and contemporary brands such as All Saints, Marc'o Polo to highstreet brands such as Topshop and Comma'. Arab staff are found there wich makes it easy to communicate with and also Prayer area for Muslims is available.  




Konen A department store that caters to the whole family from fashion and lifestyle. High-end brands and Highstreet brands both are available along with a nice cafe too.


 

Ludwig Beck is also a department store that caters to the whole family from fashion and lifestyle. High-end brands and Highstreet brands.


There is also Karstadt another favorite of mine found across Germany that caters to the whole family from fashion and lifestyle with high to medium priced products such as clothes, accessories, leather goods, home accessories, toys and more. unfortunately I do not have a picture for this one.

Munich, Germany ( P3 )


Munich, Germany (P1)



After settling down and get a bit of rest after the long flight, we went straight to the hospital to see dad at the Schreiber Klinik were he had the surgery and spent sometime recovering before they sent him to a rehabilitation institute. 

The first thing we did after that is find a place to eat, because we were starving. My older brother, who went with dad, discovered the area and knew were the Halal places were and suggested a place called Sindbad. 

Sindbad opens daily from 9AM till 10PM for Breakfast, Lunch and Dinner. It offers Middle Eastern classics like Shawarma,  Flalafil, Grills, Rise dishes and more. 

If you happen to be in Munich, give it a try I bet you will like it as we did. It is located near the Karlsplatz. 

Here is the Address :
Sindbad Kebab & Grillhaus
Schwanthalerstraße 3-11, 80336 München, Germany

NEW Spicy Nuggets by McDonald's سبايسي نغتس جديد مكدونلدز





I love spicy food and would add chili, hot sauce to anything, spicy food just makes me happy.

McDonald's just added a new addictive favorite to me which is the Spicy Nuggets. The breading that covers the nuggets is full of spices and chili flakes. They are delicious by them selves or you can just add some extra hotness to them by dipping them in the sweet chili dip , and I just can't have enough of them. 

If you are into spicy food, then you will definitely love them. They are available in a 4 pcs, 6pcs, 9pcs and 20pcs pack.

Munich, Germany (P2)



Continue  (P1) 

My dad and older brother went 3 weeks before  us (me and my other brother with his family), and had his surgery days before we arrived in Munich. My mom and sister sadly had to stay in Kuwait.



We chose the Lufthansa, and it was a 1:35AM flight to Frankfurt then take an air taxi to Munich. It was a long and tiring.



My dad found a great neighborhood with all new furnished apartments named Business Suiten surrounded by cafes, parks supermarkets and within a walking distance from the famous Olympia park, and also the BMW Museum. It was so new many of the locals did not know it existed including taxi drivers.



The Street is Called Adams-Lehmann, named after the first female general practitioner and gynecologist in Munich Hope Bridges Adams Lehmann . 


The apartments are fully furnished, with WIFI, a weekly cleaning service, in-house washing machine and dryer and more. The location is about 40 minutes (walking) from the city center. 




Couldn't ask for a better view from my apartment, to be continued.

Munich, Germany ( P1 )





The place where I took my first breath, first blink on the world, first steps, said my first words, the place where I met my first ever best friend , the place where I spent my first carefree years, Germany.

Since the day I came to Kuwait I have been longing to go back for just one day, and 30 years have passed till I had the chance to do so. It was not planned as I always dreamed. I always wanted to go and enjoy my time with my whole family, but my dad health was the reason I had to go.

Last year my dad had to spent 110 days in Munich, he had a major operation and with recovery taking time the journey took more than 3 months.

I spent the months of October and part of November in Munich, and I could not stay the whole time because of work, my mom and sister could not come and other complicated reasons. 

I still feel that I did not really enjoy each and every minute of my stay, I even cried my eyes on the returning flight back, I just did not want to go back yet.


What ever happened during my stay there will be posted soon.

مطعم مستر جريك MR.Greek




قبل فترة كنا في ذاغيت مول وفيه مطاعم يديدة وايد فاتحة فقررنا نجرب مطعم مستر جريك . تصميم المطعم وايد حلو ويوحي للشخص انه باليونان. المطعم كان soft opening والمنيو ماكان كله متوفروكان مدير المطعم متواجد واقترح علينا من الاطباق الموجودة واخترنا الشاورما وسمك السالمون والموساكا. مع كل طبق رئيسي نقدر نختار طبقين جانبيين والاطباق الجانبيه منوعه من سلطات او عيش (ارز) او بطاط وغيرة فيكون الطبق الرئيسي متكامل وحتى الكميه راهيه وتشبع.



اول ماقعدنا ضيفونا خبز وزيتون وجبن ابيض حبيناه. 



السالمون المشوي 
 السالمون المشوي كان هو الطبق الفايز واخترنا معاه الطبقين الجانبيين ( نفس الشي تقدرون تطلبونه ) سلطة يونانيه .

الشاورما او الجيرو مثل ما يسمونها
الجيرو ايضا كان لذيذ و اخترنا معاه طبقين جانبين خضار سوتيه وعيش ابيض 

الموساكا
اكثر شي كنت متشوقه اجربه كان الموساكا ولكنها للاسف كانت اقل شي عجبني لانها وايد ناشفه وحسيت ان مالها اي طعم. اخترنا معاها عيش وسلطة يونانيه كاطباق جانبيه. 


منيو المطعم وايد منوع وحاليا فتح بالكامل مكانه في ذاغيت مول العقيله
