History

Kuwait is believed to have been part of an early civilization in the 3rd millennium B.C. and to have traded with Mesopotamian cities. Archeological and historical traces disappeared around the first millennium B.C.

At the beginning of the 18th century, the ‘Anizah tribe of central Arabia founded Kuwait City, which became an autonomous sheikdom by 1756. ‘Abd Rahim of the al-Sabah became the first sheik, and his descendants continue to rule  today.

In the late 18th and early 19th centuries, the sheikdom belonged to the fringes of the Ottoman Empire. Kuwait obtained British protection in 1897 when the sheik feared that the Turks would expand their hold over the area. In 1961, Britain ended the protectorate, giving  independence, but agreed to give military aid on request.

Iraq immediately threatened to occupy the area, and the British sent troops to defend Kuwait. Soon afterward, the Arab League sent in troops, replacing the British. Iraq’s claim was dropped when the Arab League recognized Kuwait’s independence on July 20, 1961. Historically, Kuwait followed a neutral and mediatory policy among Arab states.

Kuwaiti Food

Food plays and important role in the Kuwaiti culture. There is no such thing as Kuwaiti restaurant anywhere in the world—Kuwaiti food can only be eaten at Kuwaiti homes. the most popular dish is the “Machboos”, which is chicken, beef or fish over a specially spiced rice.

Lunch is the main meal in Kuwait, and it is extremely important for families to feast together—It is like Thanksgiving everyday.

Kuwaiti tea is usually served after lunch. Kuwaiti tea is just regular hot tea, but many families add some flavors to it such as saffron or mint. Arabic coffee is also very important especially when Kuwaitis have visitors. Traditionally, when people visit, the first thing served should be the Arabic coffee.

Food plays an important role in the Kuwaiti culture. Kuwaitis usually have lunch at home, but dinner is most often eaten outside. There is variety of restaurants and cuisines to choose from.

Everywhere you go there are small sandwich restaurants selling sandwiches like falafels and shawarmas (shredded beef or chicken). These restaurants are usually called Arab or Kuwaiti fast foods. They are not as unhealthy as American fast food, but they are surely cheap and tasty.
