Whether you’re most enamoured by the exquisite blend of modern and antique architecture, thrill-seeking desert escapades, or historic pearling emporiums, you can’t afford to pass on Doha’s extravagant food experiences!

Found alike in the vibrantly vintage culture villages, atmospheric jewel-toned souqs, and world-class skyscraper restaurants, Qatar’s luxuriantly flavourful national dish is a rustic melt-in-the-mouth wonder of slow-cooked chicken or lamb, lush sauce, and refreshing salad on a fragrant bed of spiced and herbed rice.


For a hearty and bizarrely decadent brunch treat to satisfy your sweet tooth, try sugared vermicelli, richly infused with saffron, cardamom, and rose water, served with a fluffy savoury omelette, sometimes further enhanced with caramelised onions and potatoes!


Saloona is the epitome of comfort food, and just the aroma of this classically piquant Arab stew will have your mouth watering; prepared with meat or fish and a flourish of seasonal vegetables lusciously seasoned with herbs, spices, ginger, and garlic.


A crisp, golden-brown cross between doughnut and dumpling, this traditionally beloved sweet is strongly flavoured with saffron and cardamom, best enjoyed when slathered with sugar or date syrup. If you’re looking for short-term furnished apartments for rent in Doha proffering prime access to its gastronomic enclaves, venture no further than the likes of Somerset West Bay Doha.


A succulently crispy, meat-and-veggie stuffed Qatari twist on the deep-fried savoury Southeast Asian samosa, this addictive munchable is the perfect accompaniment as you hop between cutting-edge and tradition-brushed Doha allurements.
