    Your June 2022 Doha Dining Hit List – Where to Eat and Drink in Qatar this Month

    And so foodies, we find ourselves at the half way point of their weird and sometimes wonderful year. This means it’s time for your June 2022 Doha Dining Hit List – where to eat and drink in Qatar this month and let me tell you – there are options for all budgets and moods: The Frying Scotsman We’ve been waiting an eternity for this fun single concept place to reopen at the Radisson Blu.

    Take Out Tuesday – Wagamama Remix and Korean Fried Chicken

    It’s Take Out Tuesday again and this week and we are trying an old favorite and a new, delicious take on fried chicken. What’s not to love about that? Wagamama I made a very cool discovery this week, I can order Wagamama through Snoonu. Previously this favorite had been out of my delivery zone, so it was very, very welcome. Wagamama never disappoints and I’m pleased to say the dishes travel well including perennial favorite Chicken Katsu and the vegan Yaki Soba. We also opted for the Korean Beef – just the right amount of spice. For starters you can’t go past the spicy calamari as well as the generous…

    I have a confession to make – I’m a huge fan of Dani Garcia, the brains behind the newly minted Lobito De Mar at the Marsa Malaz Kempinski. But when I was told this new Doha venture was to be located on the moribund bayside site that was home to the now dearly departed Pearl Social and prior to that Antica Pesa, I did hesitate. The spot, on the island outside of the main hotel, well, it seemed a gamble. The underrated Pearl Social was excellent couldn’t make a dent and NY style Antica Pesa too was long gone. Both spots had a celebrity name attached as well. But with…
