    The Best Places to Eat and Drink in Doha in March 2021

    March is a funny month – that awkward bridge between Winter and Summer. This time last year…well we all know what happened then. On a more optimistic note, this year March is also the final full month before Ramadan and frankly, it’s a feast for foodies. This month’s list is probably more diverse than in previous months. I’m aware it’s easy to fell down a five star guilded rabbit hole here in Qatar. It’s also a solid mix of places I have been invited to try and those I pay for myself – it’s important to be transparent but also make more of an effort to get back into my…

    Life on the Wedge’s Top Doha Restaurant Dishes of 2020

    I’m not going to lie to you, compiling Life on the Wedge’s annual list of top Doha restaurant dishes of 2020 was pretty hard. I mean, it’s always a difficult task, but COVID-19 made it even more complex. Many restaurants had to pivot hard and fast to deal with restrictions, new rules and staffing changes. Some didn’t survive (RIP Snoull). Others barely scraped through. Some thrived. Others are still closed or struggling to make up ground. Usually I reserve a bit of my yearly wrap for some harsh words to restaurants and venues that didn’t live up to the hype. This year I won’t – the hospitality sector was hit…
