Upscale American Lunch and Brunch at 16HUNDRED

16HUNDRED is known to be the best upmarket American style steakhouse in Jeddah. This fine dining restaurant not only offers steaks, but also an interesting array of international dishes. They offer the best Canadian and Irish grass fed beef, aged 21 days, which makes their steaks taste earthy, fresh and of course organic. 
16HUNDRED has recently opened its doors for both lunch and brunch, which makes it perfect for lunch breaks and those who are looking to have a unique brunch on the weekends. It is located in the heart of Le Chateau; the restaurant is very welcoming with beautiful bright pink, green and creamy colors. The staff is very friendly and knowledgeable, you can ask them anything about the food and they will eagerly assist you. 
The lunch menu is a must try if you are in the mood for some exploring. Starting with the sliders, this off the grill item is made especially for burger lovers who want to have it all. It comes in three flavors ranging from prime blue sliders, which are served with Worcestershire BBQ onions and blue cheese; prime cheddar slider, comprised of sharp cheddar, caramelized onion and spicy homemade mustard; and thirdly the highly recommended wagyu beef sliders made of gouda, tomato confit, onion marmalade, house relish and 16HUNDRED’s secret sauce.
The mushroom flat-bread, recommended by the Executive Chef Matt lawson, is perfect for vegetarians who I guarantee will love it. It is made with warm goat cheese, thyme, roasted garlic, fresh mushrooms, and placed on a delightfully crunchy bread. 
The king of all dishes is the steak, which is grilled and seasoned at the diner’s very own 16HUNDRED degree broiler, and hence that’s where the name of the restaurant comes from. There are two kinds of beef at the moment, the Canadian and the Irish. The Canadian comes in two kinds, New York 12 oz and the fillet mignon 1oz. The Irish comes in three types: filet mignon 8 oz, New York 12 oz and my personal favorite the rib eye 12 oz. They are all offered with your choice of sauce from mushroom cream, peppercorn cream, bordelaise, béarnaise, chimboli, homemade BBQ and the mustard sauce. 
There are also mouthwatering main dishes such as the veal meatballs made with kasha and melted spinach. The pan-fried najel made with haricots vert, almonds and beurre blanc. The braised brisket is highly recommended, it is made with natural jus, sweet corn mash and pomme puree. The beef mac and cheese is great for sharing, made with panko breadcrumbs and truffle oil. 
16HUNDRED offers a beautiful variety of upscale American brunch with their own twist. It is only served on the weekend, which makes it a great opportunity for the whole family to meet for a great meal. Starting with the classic homemade buttermilk pancakes with maple syrup and a side of berries, this is a tasty and traditional feast. Another great option is the eggs and potato hash made with potato hash fried in glee, two fried eggs, sausages and a side of mix green salad. The southern fried chicken and waffle is a very interesting choice with its mix of breaded fried chicken, granny smith apple stripes placed on a homemade waffle, drizzled with honey. 
For those of you with a sweet tooth, the s’mores French toast is highly recommended, it is made with brioche Texas toast, graham cracker crumble, marshmallow brulee and drizzled with chocolate sauce. There is also the nutella French toast that is made with brioche Texas toast stuffed with nutella and topped with powdered sugar and homemade banana whipped cream. 
The food there is a must try, you will fall in love with everything, starting with the welcome at the door to the food presentation and the quality of the dishes.

Nearly four in 10 US HIV infections from people unaware of infection

Nearly four in 10 US HIV infections from people unaware of infection

  • The Trump administration has said it will invest $291 million in the next financial year to fight HIV/AIDS, which has plateaued since 2013 to around 39,000 annual transmissions

WASHINGTON: Almost 40 percent of new HIV cases in the US occur because people do not know they are infected, while a similar proportion know but are not in treatment, according to a study released Monday.
The report by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is based on 2016 data and aims to bolster a strategy outlined by President Donald Trump to end the epidemic within 10 years.
The strategy has two main strands: far more widespread screening, and enabling the infected better access to treatment from the moment they test positive.
The study found that 38 percent of infections came from HIV-positive people who were unaware of their status, and 43 percent from people who knew they were infected but took no anti-retroviral drugs.
The remaining infections came from people who were receiving HIV treatment but were not yet “virally suppressed.”
The CDC blamed financial, social and other reasons for people not using medication, which these days typically comes in the form of a daily pill with minimal side effects.
The study said that the infection rate from the half million people in the United States who take medication and are virally suppressed — meaning they cannot pass on the disease to others — was zero.

The most at-risk group remains homosexual men, with almost three-quarters of new infections coming from men having sex with men, the report said.
Five percent of infections came from intravenous drug abuse among homosexual men, while 10 percent came from injecting drugs among the rest of the population.
Twelve percent of infections were among heterosexuals. Overall, the highest rate of transmission was among 13 to 24-year-olds.
The Trump administration has said it will invest $291 million in the next financial year to fight HIV/AIDS, which has plateaued since 2013 to around 39,000 annual transmissions.
The goal is to reduce that number by 75 percent within five years and by 90 percent in 10 years.
Questioned about the relatively small amount of money earmarked for the multi-billion dollar task of treating HIV carriers, CDC head Robert Redfield said he was “confident that the resources that are required to accomplish this mission are in the long term plan.”
The CDC, based in Atlanta, Georgia, wants doctors to make HIV screening a routine procedure.
“Everyone between the ages of 13 and 64 should get tested for HIV at least once in their lifetime,” said Eugene McCray, the head of the CDC’s Division of HIV/AIDS Prevention.
“Those at higher risk should get tested at least annually,” he said.
“The key to controlling is helping those with HIV to control the virus,” said the CDC’s Jonathan Mermin, who focuses on preventing the spread of the HIV as well as other sexually transmitted diseases, tuberculosis and hepatitis.
“Time spent working closely with patients who are having trouble paying for, picking up or taking their daily medications is time well spent“
