    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…

    Where to find a Taste of Portugal in Doha

    A friend sent me the Instagram account for Portugal Taste in Doha and I knew I had to make an order ASAP. In fact, I made two orders over two separate days to sample as much as possible from their extensive menu. I’m always looking for new and out of the box dining experiences in Doha and this fits the bill. They do delivery only at the moment, you order online from their extensive menu, choose your delivery time and yes, all dishes are halal. What’s on the menu at Portugal Taste?

    Hot for Hot Pot? This Doha Hotel Has Three Great Options for Iftar

    Who doesn’t love hotpot? In my view it’s the ultimate do-it-yourself meal – steaming pots of seasoned broth, platters of meat, veggies and seafood plus noodles and more. D’Chopstix at Holiday Villa has a terrific offer for those who want to try hotpot this Ramadan. The hotyel is offering it among a trio of options for iftar or a dinner. You can choose from the hotpot; or a Korean style BBQ done at your table or shabu shabu (Japanese style hotpot) for QR160 for two people. All DIY and all delicious.

    Lobito De Mar: First Look at Doha’s new Spanish Seafood restaurant

    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…
