Four Great Eid Staycation Options in Qatar

Not everyone has the luxury of being able to travel this Eid period. Work, family and life can get in the way. While I am fortunate to be able to travel this year (destination to be revealed soon!), I will still be adding a couple of days in Doha on at the end to ease…

Summer Loving – Nobu’s Seasonal Menu

You would have to be living under a rock to not know that all is not well in the GCC region right now. This isn’t a blog to discuss politics and the bullying antics of neighboring countries against a sovereign nation (oops…see what I did there?). But I can truly say it’s business as usual –…

Competition Time – Win a Nandos Ramadan Platter

Competition Time! This one is exclusively for my Facebook followers… My friends at  Nandos Qatar like to bring people together so they have given me TWO of their Ramadan platters to give away. And what a feast it is: One flame grilled peri peri chicken FOUR large sides FOUR soups and FOUR drinks. That’s enough…

Seven Essential Books for the Foodie and Traveler in All of Us

It’s a little known fact that I am a voracious reader. How, you might ask, do I fit this in with my regimented schedule of Netflix viewing and Lifetime movie watching? It’s tough, believe me, especially now the new Post-Trumpian House of Cards has dropped  (and seriously, it’s brutal – “I will NOT yield!”). I will always…

But when Erstwhile Wingwoman and my business guru Brooke suggested we check out BulBul Streetfood after an event one evening last week, I was…

Five Day Dining Options in Doha During Ramadan

Ramadan Kareem! While I do love seeing the city come alive during the long Ramadan nights, it’s nice to have some quality options to eat out during the day. My friends at Doha News have compiled an exhaustive listing of opening hours for restaurants, malls and other facilities across the city and Qatar Eating have done the same. But…

Dine Around Doha – A Perfect Day as Told Though Food

Not every day is wine, roses and free snacks in the food blogging world. Some days it’s a long day at work, then collapsing on the sofa with Netflix and a steaming bowl of… Maggi noodles and cheese (seriously – don’t tell anyone). But some days, every so often, when the Gods shine, are just…

Seven Underrated Restaurants in Doha You Should be Trying

It should be no surprise to anyone that Qatar’s dining scene is driven by fads. If it’s new, shiny (and has a big brand or well known name attached), we flock to it like moths to a flame. Then…it’s onto the next big thing. Don’t get me wrong, there are a host of new restaurants…

Seven Foodie Destinations to Add to Your Travel Bucket List

I’m pretty sure I’m not alone in this confession – but I choose my holiday destinations based on food. Beaches are nice. So are galleries. And yeah, I love a bit of shopping. But honestly, for me, it’s all about the food. I’m in the process of researching and booking my Summer vacation destinations (thank…
