It seems like we have been doing this self isolation thing a very long time. And perhaps we have. There is no denying times are tough for many and the hospitality industry has been doing it tougher than most. In my view the businesses in this post serve great food as well as importantly follow infection control measures. And with working long hours in the office(well for me anyway) all of them have also been a lifesaver. So for when you just can’t make…

    HUQQA, Line and Sinker – A Review of Doha’s Newest Turkish Restaurant

    Ever has that feeling KNOW you are getting taken for an expensive ride…that feeling when the experience is so swift and so practiced that you have to sit back and just admire the AUDACITY.

Established places trying different things and pushing the boat out…. The Good There was genuinely a lot to love about the food scene this year – the opening of Qatar’s first Scandinavian restaurant Snoull, the quiet rise of the restaurants at the Mandarin Oriental, new homegrown concepts like Boho Social and BAO Doha taking risks and putting themselves out there. And the…

    The weather is cooling – that means chances for swanning around outside and not end up bathed in a sheen of sweat are high. Doha winters make the summers almost bearable (and I will fight anyone who disagrees). Here are my 7 top places in Doha to dine outdoors this winter… catch you outside.. 1. Mykonos Doha It seems like Mykonos has been around forever and there is a good reason why its outside terrace is packed nightly in the cooler months. With a pool view and a bit of an island feel, the food is Greek staples like moussaka and grilled lamb, it’s hard to look past. Friday and…
