Another dish to try is Syrniki — Russia’s version of tiny pancakes made from eggs, flour, and cottage cheese served with cream or jam, fresh fruits and berries. Kvass, a special non-alcoholic Russian drink made of rye bread costs only QR 7. Opened on July 30, you can avail 20% discount on your first visit!

    It’s not often that you get to see pizzas baked the traditional way here in Qatar. But for a pizza to have that ooey-gooey cheese, bubbling sauce, and beautiful puffy crust, it needs to be baked in a brick oven, and Slice it Pizzeria has just that! You can choose between buying a slice or a whole pizza, but we suggest buying a whole pizza immediately because we know that just one slice will have you asking for more.

    • Location: Msheireb Downtown
    • Contact: +974 5000 7850
    • Timings: Daily, 12 pm to 12 am
