Qatar Living 10 years celebration at French Olive

Wanting to review this gem since the longest I can remember, the perfect blend of Italian – French cuisine with a fantabulous bakery.
On my various visits, I’ve enjoyed their pizzas the most as well as the lasagne. I’ve to mention their kid friendly cutlery is a special touch and definitely a huge positive for a parent.
A few days before I’d an invite to sample some of the gorgeous dishes put together by the chef for a food bloggers dinner event hosted by Qatar Living as a celebration of completing 10 successful years in the country. It was a pleasure meeting some wonderful food bloggers alongside the warm staff at French Olive and Qatar Living. We were given a personalized tour of the restaurant and the open kitchen by the Chef himself.

Mangia! Mangia!

I’m a huge fan of Italian food and my ultimate dream is to go to Italy and devour the cuisine just the way Julia Roberts did in ‘Eat, Pray, Love’. Of course, this sounds as cliche as it can be, but it is one hundred percent true. As the title suggests, Mangia is Italian for Eat and that is what I did for 2 hours at the New Menu Tasting at Il Teatro restaurant.

Right from greasy creamy pasta to pizza and anti pasti, from fast food to formal dining, I’ve had Italian right from when I was a child. I’ve only grown to know that Italian that we had as children wasn’t authentic after all with a lot of Indian spice mixed in to bring in the flavour.

Not having the chance to visit many Italian restaurants in Qatar, I would recommend you visit Rosalyn at Dream Days Blog who has a  round up of the amazing Italian places in one post (she’s big on Italian food too, an amazing lifestyle blogger and a great friend).

I’ve deviated too much today from the highlight which is the launch of the New Menu at Il Teatro – Four Seasons Doha where we were invited to review the sumptuous and decadent delicacies introduced by Chef Marco Arlotti.

In one word, it was absolutely mind blowing! Since I  couldn’t attend the official media event, they were kind enough to arrange a  special evening when I’d the chef attend to me exclusively (Italian Chef with his recommendations specially for me – definitely Italy brought to me in Doha).

Chili’s – Doha

There’s a reason you pick Chili’s as your choice of fast casual out of the many American competition in the region!
 
They are more of a quiet setup, not very noisy, moderately formal interiors and staff and their food pictures are actually what is served to you. Yes, it is a bit high in price comparatively. But what you get as an experience on the whole is flavoursome, sinful yet satisfying food.

As soon as we entered, we were warmly welcomed by the friendly staff. Assuming we could use our Entertainer vouchers, we presented that in the beginning itself but were disappointed that it could be used only in 3 branches of the country and City Centre Mall branch wasn’t on the list. However, we continued to our table and below is what we ordered:
