Recently, I discovered a really convenient new hypermarket. located in the new Al Salam shopping mall in Salmiya,
It is a full sized, 120,000 sq. ft. hypermarket with a fresh food section comprising fruit, vegetables, dairy products, meat, fish and hot and cold ready-to eat food. It also has an extensive section of their ‘free from worry’ food range featuring Gluten free, Lactose free, Dairy free, Yeast free, Wheat free, Vegan, Organic, Fat free, Nut free, Soy free, Salt free, GM free, Egg free, free range, no sugar, no additives, no preservatives, no hydrogenated fat and other specialty food imported from around the world.
I found the staff pleasant and helpful and the seafood section particularly well stocked and fresh. I found, for the first time in Kuwait, large sized squid, perfect for making stuffed squid in tomato sauce. I also found that the butcher shop cuts meat to order. Although it may take a bit longer to wait for your selection, I enjoyed having the service counter take care of my meat order, while I continued to shop.
In general, I found this addition to Salmiya to be really convenient and I am really glad its come to Salmiya.
