Living on the Wedge – My Top Dishes of 2016

For the last 11 months I have been carrying around a list on my phone. Well, I have a lot of lists on my phone. Most of them involve my dry cleaning, calling the real estate to holler at them and getting  a multitude of documents stamped. But this list has been ever changing, always…

Six Foodie Things To Try Before the End of the Year

Listen up people! It’s December in a couple of days ! You heard me! DECEMBER! When did that happen? I demand a recount (on so many levels). Honestly, it seemed like just yesterday we were sweating through July and praying for less daylight and cooler temperatures. I’ve just realised there is a whole bunch I promised myself…

A Pizza My Heart – Six Great Home Delivery Restaurants in Doha

Contrary to popular opinion, I don’t eat out every night. My natural state is at home, on the couch, with AZ arguing over my apparently inexplicable love of reality TV. So truth is, I am, in fact, a bit of a homebody. I love to cook, but sometimes, after a long and complicated day or…

Saturday is the New Friday – The Big Doha Brunch Switch-Up

It’s early days people, but I’m calling it. Saturday lunch is the new Friday brunch. I will warn you that my form on such proclamations is spotty. I am still waiting for “Wednesday is the new Thursday” to become a thing. But this time I may be into something here. As we see numbers at…

My Doha Dining Wish List

Dreams do come true. ABBA is reforming (kinda). QDC now opens on a Friday. And someone built a 24 hour free wine fountain. So I have decided to put it all out there and share my Doha Dining Wish List. Feel free to laugh, cry or even add your own in the comments below. Open Table or similar  booking…

The Brunch to Beat – Shangtastic at the Shangri-La Doha

I used to be a prolific bruncher but around 18 months ago I gave up on the brunch scene in Doha. It was a combination of factors that pushed me to the brink – other priorities on Fridays, work and finally, the lack of value for money. It was around the time that brunches hit…

Wok and Roll – A Review of the Shanghai Club

It’s very rare that I would go to a restaurant “cold” – that is with literally no idea what to expect in terms of food or experience. Usually Doha-based foodies would have swarmed a new venue, picked it apart and shared it on social media. Or, the fooderati (I say that with my tongue very…

Rollin’ In the Deep – A Review of Cactus Senshi

When I hear the phrase “fusion food” my eyebrows arch (as much as they can). Why can’t good food just be food? Why does it have to have a label? So it was with a certain degree of trepidation that I finally entered the brightly lit premises of the much hyped Cactus Senshi in Bin Mahmoud. This…

And we can happily say that we have a winner! Congrats Sue, we think you will love the all you can eat noodles and dumplings! Please send me a…
