I am going to India for a short trip and would like to carry some good quality Dates. Can someone suggest few names of good quality ones and also where i can get these in Doha.
I am personally fond of Sugai (or Suqai) and Mabroom. Mabroom can be more expensive and more difficult to find than Sugai. Mabroom is around 45-60qr / kg. Sugai around 35-40.
I buy suqai from lulu, they have prepacked boxes of 1/2 kg for 20 qr and 1 kg for 39. Its in a cling wrapped plastic box mentioning doha dates. Very sweet, tasty and healthy.
Yes Mabroom is my favourite as well. I buy it all packed beautifully from the gift shop opposite Carrefour in City Centre as gifts. Usually I prefer the ones labeled Mabroom or Medjool.
