What’s on the menu? – 5

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).

Qatar International Food Festival 2014 & Dinner in the Sky

This weekend has been action packed with various interesting events happening across Doha. Qatar International Food Festival being one event that everyone has been so excited about – my personal favourite and has been the talk of the town since the mark of 2014.
Not being able to visit on Day 1, I made sure the 2nd day fit well in my schedule as the last year I was able to make it in time only at the last few hours of the 3 day long festival. This year Uber Doha  – Uber Doha Twitter has privileged visitors to travel in class using their service complimentary using the promo code #QIFF2014. Making use of the fantastic offer, we went to and fro travelling in the Cadillac first and back home in an S class with WIFI all through (aint that a good deal now?). QIFF has made it more flexible this time around and no standing in queues for the coupons like the last year. You go to the restaurant stall and buy your choices using direct cash (thank God we are spared the back & forth and the service fee). Everything was organized well and divided into easy directional zones.
