Everyone knows that driving in Doha is a rough experience. People disregard rules, drive like maniacs, ignore the speed limits, and just don’t care about anyone else.

I’ve eaten there only once before, but it was a hot summer’s… Continue reading Tajine at Souq Waqif – Good Morrocan food
I’m a bit (okay, VERY) late to the Qatar Link Up party, but whatever. The restaurant scene in Doha is growing at such a rapid rate that I really can’t keep up. There are so many new restaurants popping up every other week, and they just keep getting better and better. I haven’t even begun… Continue reading The difficult decision: What’s my favourite restaurant in Doha?
