We love how everyone has come together in support of Qatar during the past few weeks. Locals and expats are coming together like never before in support of what this great nation has given to many of us. In that spirit, let’s take a quick gastronomic tour and dine like a Qatari would!
Rated 3.4 / 5 - Al Jasra Street, Souq Waqif
We all remember when Mama worked her magic over that small kitchen stove to produce a mighty feast. Qatari Chef Shams does exactly that! She serves up traditional Qatari breakfast dishes, like her famous rogag with all kinds of fixings, which is only better with a hot pot of sweet tea.
Rated 3.5 / 5 - Souq Al Wakrah, Al Wakrah
Al Baranda is an up-and-coming café that’s appeasing the masses with its karak and crispy parathas. Those seats fill up fast, so hurry up and grab a seat to enjoy these simple delights by the sea.
Rated 3.5 / 5 - Salwa Road, Doha
Literally translating to “Mother’s Harees” (soon to be “Our Harees”), Muglat Harees Al Waldah has been the go-to place for traditional Qatari cuisine. Their star dish may be harees but their simple menu also includes fan favorites such as majboos and mandi.
Rated 3.8 / 5 - Plaza Andalucia, The Pearl
Initially opening at The Pearl-Qatar before expanding to other locations, Sammach has made a name for itself when it comes to Qatar’s unwritten “Seafood Thursdays”. Qatari and Arabic seafood dishes are what’s served up the most, but don’t miss out on popular international flare such as paella and stuffed crab.
Rated 3.8 / 5 - Bank Street, Al Asmakh, Doha
Fouj is one of the most talked about Qatari-owned cafés in town. From the pistachio cheesecake to the coffee, Fouj makes a day of hustle and bustle a little bit sweeter. When you’re not in mood for the hubbub of Bank Street, head to Fouj Cafe in Souq Al Wakrah.
Rated 4.0 / 5 - Salwa Road, Doha
Bringing back authentic khaleeji slow-cooking recipes, the local chefs take pride in every dish they serve to their guests. Foodies rave about the true-to-the-name deliciousness of the dishes, the excellent service and the comfortable atmosphere surrounding them.
Rated 4.1 / 5 - Hikma Street, Katara Cultural Village
It’s truly the simple things in life that give us the most joy in life, especially if it’s a warm cup of karak with a rolled up chapati. If it’s “too hot for karak,” make it a karak shake and don’t miss a single beat during these hot summer nights.
