Same dish, 2 prices?

I love authentic desi food and miss it dearly in Qatar. Now you would say there are so many Indian/Pakistani restaurants, but most of them are altered in taste (spice-o-meter) to fit in with the masses – result: desiness lost!

Nonetheless, there are a few that remain my favourite but not as authentic. The only place so far that has come close to being original is Zaoq located at Salwa Road which is bubbling with people and never disappoints with their food. The restaurant sign says it’s Pakistani but has a lot of Indian/mughlai touches. I would say it’s a  mix between the two countries.

Chocolate Fantasy in progress…

Due to lack of time, my typical breakfast on a weekday is rather simple without much experimenting and includes my absolute necessary tea with a piece of toast with labneh – leaving me enthusiastic enough to try a new breakfast boutique over the weekend.

Friday mornings are to get out there and treat myself to amazing breakfast places. One such isChaclate at Katara.

Mid last year, a friend (Ms. Hala) and myself met for breakfast (10ish) at Chaclate which wasn’t too late in my opinion. The ‘Chocolate Breakfast’ is what was on the lookout but sad enough they ran out of that and the other options (highly priced) didn’t appeal to us. Leading us to enjoy our morning at Paul in Lagoona Mall (the next best closest – there is Sugar n Spice in the same mall but was closed).

What brought us back to Chaclate was an invite from them to try the breakfast on another occasion due to the shortcoming on this day. We thought why not!
