Our five year adventure in Doha, Qatar ended June 1, 2012, but the memories will always remain. It's back to Texas where I have decided...Qatar isn't cornering the market on "quirky", as I once believed. Thanks for opening my eyes to the world, Doha!

More Doha Eats on the Way

Food, my favorite subject. Have you noticed the pattern? You would think I weighed four hundred pounds as it is my favorite form of entertainment. When I hear any talk about a new restaurant coming to town, my ears perk immediately. Yesterday, I got a tweet from @dohanews that a new cafe named "Doha Rocks" is opening up in the airport area. First thing I do, of course, is Google it. I was actually very surprised to find that they had a website and Facebook page for it, but both were lacking any good information. What I did run across while looking, though, is that Hard Rock Cafe is coming to Doha. I missed that newsflash somewhere along the way. Hard Rock's website indicates that it's opening in the Winter of '09. I might be a little skeptical about that date, since it is June already and I haven't heard much buzz on that. What I do know, is that a new Applebee's, Quiznos, Burger King, and Cafe Vergnano are seeing their finishing touches. I ran across those by accident while traveling down Markhiya near the post office last week. Having a free standing Applebees, not in a mall or at the ever chaotic Ramada junction (aka cholesterol corner) will be convenient with easy access. I see it in our future added to our other trusted regular dining digs. Keep it up Doha, bring on the food!

  1. Got to your blog while ggogling something about Doha. Did you try the Doha Rocks cafe. A friend said its nothing great... will have to check it out one of these days I liked the name.

  2. No, we haven't been. I guess because it's way on the other side of town for us. The name really caught my "ear" too. Go check it out for me & let me know if it's worth visiting! Happy eating :D


I always love hearing your comments. Go ahead make my day, be it the good, the bad, or the ugly...
