Best Lebanese Cuisine in D- Town | Al Nafourah

On the second night of our staycation at Oryx Rotana, we decided to dine at Al Nafourah – An Alfresco dining restaurant at Oryx Rotana that serves Lebanese Cuisine. I am a big fan of Arabic cuisines, and so I was fairly excited to dine there, and was anticipating a great evening. The evening turned out to be one of fairly good weather. I had gone there earlier to take a look at the restaurant itself, and was informed that my table was already reserved. The weather being really nice that day, and me still wanting time to prepare myself for a good appetite, I informed them I would have dinner later. For those who don’t know Al Nafourah is open until 2 am so it’s open for the late diners.

As soon as we reached the restaurant for dinner, we were taken to our seats by Sri Moorthy, and he placed the menus before us. While deciding what to eat, we ordered our drinks. The drinks we chose were off the menu, and were specials – I opted for Strawberry Lebanese Mocktail, and Mr. M chose Mango Lebanese Mocktail. We liked the Mango Lebanese Mocktail better.

Being confused as to what to pick like always, myself and Mr. M were running through the pages trying to make up our minds as to what we wanted to have. Sri Moorthy offered us the Al Nafourah starter platter which is a platter with small servings of 7 Hot Mezzahs, and 7 Cold Mezzahs – That made our job a whole easier. And, when it was placed before us – it was massive , and looked very drool worthy. The cold Mezzahs served included Hummus, Moutabbal, BabaGhannouj, Labneh with garlic and mint, Vine leaves, Tabouleh, Fattoush and Oriental Salad.

The Hot Mezzahs included Hummus with Shawarma, Beef Kebbeh, Falafel, Sambousek meat, Cheese rolls, Spinach Fatayer, and Cheese Sambousek.

The Kebbehs were delicious, crispy, crunchy, meaty, and all the right kind of adjectives it deserved.

We were quick to dig in, and did finish up most of the Hot Mezzahs, and left the cold Mezzahs as accompaniments to the Main Course. As for Main Course we opted for Mixed Seafood Grill Platter, and Mixed Grill Platter. For the Mixed seafood we opted only for the grilled shrimps, and calamari as these were our favorites from the sea.

The Mixed Grill Platter Al Nafourah is the best that I have had in Doha ever. The lamb chops were so succulent, flavorful, and delicious –  I am so sure I haven’t had better one. If you havn’t tried it yet, get going there already. Chef Abdul Aziz for sure did an amazing job with the dishes. Hats off to him and the team for placing such tasty dishes on the table!

Being so full, I opted to drink Moroccan Tea to just make myself feel less guilty for having eaten so much. Mr M opted for Turkish coffee after instead. However, he preferred the Turkish coffee he had at Sky Lounge.

There is no better Lebanese dining cuisine place in Doha we can guarantee was our memory from that night. Have you dined at Al Nafourah? What was your experience like? What did you like or not like about the place?

Nothing in life comes easy. Happiness comes from within. Everyone has their own opinion on what success is.
It is upto you to decide and work for the success you believe in honestly, and kindly. I always believe in the fact that if you put your heart and soul in paving your way, pulling up as many people as you can along the way, you will find yourself in a place you are content with, and surrounded by the right people.
It will happen but it will take time.
PERSEVERANCE & KINDNESS is key 🗝🗝🗝

MY VEIL STORY
They told me " I didnt have to wear the veil there. My husband wasn't around." I listened. I smiled. I didnt say anything back.
Little did they know that my husband had nothing to do with my veil.
It was my choice and I Didn't do it for him. What if my husband wasn't there?My religion to me is submission to God. He is all-seeing, all-hearing!I hear a lot of assumptions often and here's what I feel about it. Unless you are in their shoes, and you know every detail of their life, You dont have the right to assume. And, even if you do, please keep it to yourself, so that people are less hurt because of the assumptions you make.
Being fashionably nice is not in looks alone, it is in trying to hurt  as less possible around you with your words. Words once spoken that you cant take back!
Your choice of words are everything! It determines your style, class and elegance more than anything

Its easy to forget the beautiful memories we have like a beautiful sunrise.
Social Media makes it easy to whine and complain about things we dont have.
Perhaps if we remind ourselves more of the beautiful memories we have everyday, its going to be easier to be content with everything we have and get to experience in our life everyday!

The wind was strong, the water wild, but there was peace as we watched the sun go down.
Peace that only nature could provide with.
And, it was the most relaxing scene to watch.
A beautiful experience for me.

LIMITLESS SKIES
Pushing myself to do better everyday is one thing I have always done for myself.
I have believed that the only limit you have around is dependent on what you place yourself in.
How beautiful is this view? From an excursion taken during my stay in the @sholacrownmunnar
