Qatar Taste and Fun Food Festival 2012
We just came home from visiting the Qatar Taste and Fun Food Festival 2012 being held at the Doha Exhibition Center which started last Feb. 8 and would end tomorrow (Feb. 11). We had fun at last years’ 2nd Annual Doha Food Festival (as it was called then) so we didn’t want her to miss it this time.
The area provided by Qatar Tourism Authority has been made bigger and the layout is quite better for both visitors and those taking part in the food festival. Instead of the back-to-back layout of food stalls last year, they provided an open square layout where they placed some bouncing castles and play areas for kids. Food servings are still at 5-15QR. Anyway, as a whole, I’m sure anybody who goes there would enjoy the festival atmosphere. They could have provided more entertainment ( a concert or two), and more seats, but it is much recommended to go to this week.
Below are some food recommendations from the different stalls at the Qatar Taste and Fun Food Festival 2012
The Ritz-Carlton's Marinated Salmon w Lemon Risotto Citrus Foam
Doha Sheraton's South American Chicken Empanada
Oryx Rotana's Angus Beef Burger
La Cigale's Beef Paillard w/ Mashed Potatoes & Gravy
Intercontinental Doha's Paella Valencia w Seafood and Chili con Carne Basket
Dana Club's Tempura Fish and Chips
Movenpick's Ice creams
Think i might go and check it out today :)
Youre kidding right?
Got dragged there and tried some of the food on offer and it was mediocre at best.
Atleast it wasnt a total disaster like last year.
Im on a diet so no go for me :-(
Had some great food there this evening. Well worth a visit. Not often you can get absolutely stuffed in this city for QR30. I shall be back there again tomorrow.
Wow..I might go there tomorrow and catch up the last few hours...tell me what are the stalls worth visiting?
