Travelling from East to West in One Day | Street Food Night @ Doha Marriott

This post has been coming much later after my real experience, but my memories are so vivid. You’ll know why as you read!

When I received the invitation from Doha Marriott to try their Street Food Night, little did I know what I was going to experience. Corniche at Doha Marriott turns out to be the place which takes you on a culinary journey from places around the globe. You can take a seat at any of the restaurants along the Corniche on a Thursday night, and venture out to get the street food of your choice.

As you enter you see the juicing station. Having spotted tender coconut, even before I looked at what else was on the menu, I immediately went for it.

I warned you that the gelatos looked real good!

Walk down the streets of Mexico, there’s tacos, and tortillas. Tortillas, a type of thin, unleavened flatbread made from finely ground corn, are a staple of Mexican cuisine and have been around for hundreds of years.

Moving on from Mexico you get to have American Street food but instead of KFC you see a poster that says Oliver’s Fried Chicken. It’s finger-licking good I say.

And then there’s burgers too. Not wanting to be full even before reaching anywhere else we move on, and reach India.

There’s all sorts of chaat, pani puris, and Indian Sweets in all its glory. Walking down the Indian lane of street food, you can hear the popular songs from the 90’s.

There’s also several food puns that has been very well thought together by Doha Marriott’s Marketing folks!

Walking along we find that there’s more street food – Indonesian.

satay-indonesian-streetfood

Satays have their origins in Indonesia but are also popular in the areas around – Singapore, Brunei, Thailand.

Moving on there was Japanese – sushis, and sashimis not to be mentioned. There was also okonomiyakis. Okonomiyakis are a must-try!

okonamiyaki-streetfood-japanese

Okonomiyaki is often described as a Japanese pizza, but it’s more like a savory pancake. Okonomiyaki was invented, they say, in Osaka, which is a city famous for cheap and good eats. Okonomiyaki is a snack more than a full meal, though it is pretty filling.

There were dim sums from the Chinese;

dimsum-chinese-streetfood

Dim sum means ‘touch the heart’ in Chinese. The small portions were designed to merely touch the heart not sate the appetite, and as such were first enjoyed as snacks. Over time, however, yum cha has evolved, and the cuisine is now a vital part of Chinese culture.

And then you walk into Britain – finding all things from Fish and chips to Quiches.

There’s a mini bakery on the go as well with all the yummy baked goodies!

And then you reach Arabia where you find hummus, muthabbal, and more of the likes.

Guess what? There’s healthy too – salads ( but it’s well hidden away in the very end). So if you make it there before your cravings get you, you have got good control on your diet. 😀

salad-healthy-food-marriott

Yes! I made it to the salad section, and did have them too!

Finally there’s seafood market where you can choose from what you want. The same experience like going to a fish market, and doing your seafood shopping only that you get this grilled or cooked the way you want immediately!

The friendly staff who are much happy to serve you during the street food Doha makes the experience more worthwhile.

I have shown you pictures but pictures aren’t just enough to show you how good the experience was. Take a huge appetite! Go with your whole family! It’s a great experience. It’s on a Thursday evening- no better way to begin the weekend.

I was invited as a guest to Street Food Doha. However, all opinions are solely my own, and in no way influenced.

Have you ever stepped into a hotel and felt like this is just exactly who I am? If so, where did you feel that way?
For me, I felt it @alrayyan.hotel.doha from the @curiocollection !
.
.How fab is this sunset?
Curious where it is?
40 minutes away from Al Rayyan hotel is the Zekreet Beach. This was a sunset we caught during our stay at Al Rayyan Hotel.

Have you been to any hotel in the @curiocollection ?
Here's a post
✴️Reminiscing about the wonderful time I had at @alrayyan.hotel.doha this weekend
✴️On another note, Summer's almost here and spending it by the pool is a good idea , isn't it? The one at @alrayyan.hotel.doha is amazing! ✴️Did you know that AlRayyan Hotel is the first of the @Curiocollection Hotel in the Middle East ?
I really enjoyed my time at the hotel... Wait for my entire experience coming soon on the blog .

Sugarcane juice or coconut water? 🌴
Which one would you pick?
Do you like to stop by the street and try out the local fruits and vegetables? Are you that person?

"Can I go back here already?" @oryxrotana
I cannot recommend the hospitality of the staff here enough 👌👌
When you book with Club Rotana, your rooms are bigger than normal, check in is from the Executive Lounge, and you get access to the Club Rotana Lounge throughout your stay.
So glad to see that Club Rotana is now in Doha
Have you stayed at oryx Rotana or any other Rotana Hotels? .

Beautiful Art set in a Raw Space and the perfect sunset in the background.
My previous pics were a most obvious art and now this one is more conceptual. The more you look at it the more it says. What art do you like ?
Taking place in the 29th floor of the @wdoha START Doha exhibits works of nine artists either from or living in Qatar
It's going to be around from March 11-14th 9 am - 9 pm .

Happy Friday Folks ! 😊😊
These paintings that have a three dimensional effect are so impressive.
I love art, culture, and anything inspiring. I was fortunate enough to get to see these paintings being done live. What about you?
Did you get a chance to check it out? This was from @citywalkdubai - an initiative of @branddubai
