I can’t believe we waited until Tuesday to have our first outdoor meal this week! On a personal note, I was avoiding too much of the restaurant food as I was gearing up for the #QIFF2015 (Qatar International Food Festival) and thinking about the treats I had last year and absolutely was looking forward to new additions this year as it looked extremely promising. Let’s find out if I was pleased this year and much more.
Tuesday was a ‘try new restaurant’ kind of a day and we visited the much anticipated ‘Dakshin’ at Barwa Village. Authentic South Indian food and my first time with hardcore flavors of Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Karnataka and Tamil Nadu (South Indian states). I thought it was brilliant and though I didn’t have any past experience to compare it to, I am sure to go back and tingle those taste buds with spicy food and for that filter Kaafi (coffee). The service was a bit of a downside (review soon here).
This review has been long overdue and even though there is nothing fancy about the restaurant their food talks for them! Sewar Al Sham is a hidden gem in this city and our favourite weekday indulgence.
This is not the usual small-time Lebanese place that is not suited for women. The ambiance is very welcoming, clean interiors, hygienic atmosphere and kid friendly to top it all – there! they got their brownie points! There is no segregation in areas, but families can easily enjoy a good time.
In the longest time I can remember this happening, the entire last week saw home delivered food or eating out at to go places every single day because I was taking care of the little one who wasn’t well and later in the week, it was passed on to me.
We are a family that puts food on the top – in sickness too. The week kick started with breakfast at Shakespeare and Co. and included superb mixed Saj with Cafe Mocha – It was delectable.
