Applebees – Doha

Being in full spirit of the upcoming FIFA world cup in Qatar, everyone has a role to play in contributing to the excitement the country is in. Likewise is one such American restaurant – Applebee’s newly opened branch at the Dar Al Salaam Mall.

It came as a surprise to me as well when I first entered this casual dining place and noticed every part of the interior design was focused on Qatar and their love for sports. I was expecting a loud decor with dim lights and jazzy showy pieces which is usually the normal scenario at such joints. Instead, it’s a different concept with beautiful layout divided in several private dining areas. There’s also an alfresco dining area which is an excellent place in the pleasant climate.

The Butcher Shop and Grill – Doha

There are a few days when my only thought is steaks and great steaks – just the word ‘delightful’ is what my tummy aims to achieve in one yummy scrumptious package.
Guess what, I did exactly the same at The Butcher Shop and Grill when I visited them over the weekend.

As hungry as I was, I couldn’t be intrigued with the interiors. Giving it a back seat (left to explore later hence no photos – it was closing hours post dinner), we proceeded straight towards ordering. Though, I have to mention the immediate warmth of the courteous staff and their readiness at guiding us to our table was commendable. The baby high chair or let’s just call it the baby high throne (I’m in love with it) was the most appealing and exciting part of the décor.


Their huge live-life king size seating was no less than that of the uber French designs. The bold green and soft white combination played well between modern and classic eras.
