Finally, after 5 months of living in Doha – I have tried the very popular, almost an institution restaurant called Rics Kountry Kitchen. I have been hearing about it a lot since I arrived and somehow, I had a feeling that having one of the hearty meals of Rics Kountry Kitchen is some sort of an initiation of your expat life in Doha. You’re not a true Doha resident if you haven’t tried it yet, that’s why when I finally convinced the Greek Mister to have one of our breakfasts there one Friday morning, I jumped for joy! The deal maker? The Entertainer App voucher that we have there. Yes, the Greek Mister is just like me – a huge fan of The Entertainer App.
We arrived at around 8am and I must say that I have not seen any breakfast nook as busy as Rics Kountry Kitchen. It’s a small restaurant which looks much like a cafeteria, nothing fancy. I actually like the whole ambiance of it because it’s quite rare to find something real here in Doha, everything’s just so extravagant don’t you think? I love the no-frills, no bullsh*t, come-as-you-are atmosphere of the whole place. As soon as we entered, a Filipino guy signaled us towards him as he did his last wipe of the table which just got vacated. Menus were immediately handed over to us which was quite extensive specially the breakfast options. Both the Greek Mister and myself are big breakfast people so seeing that almost everything on Rics Kountry Kitchen’s menu was a big breakfast kind made us really confused. This definitely isn’t the place for people who are trying to lose weight and I love it! 🙂
I ordered sausage in a blanket which is this dish with 2 pancakes and 2 pcs of sausage in between it. I’ve heard a lot about how good the pancake is at Rics so I had to try it. The Greek Mister had a bigger breakfast plate called Texas Special which consists of 2 eggs, turkey ham, mushrooms, fries and toast. I had an orange juice while the Greek Mister had coffee. My pancake was fluffy with the right amount of milky and sweet taste, I did love it! I ate it plain without any sweetener since the sweetness it has on its own is just perfect for my taste buds. The Greek Mister enjoyed his plate too although he wasn’t a very big fan of the coffee.
Price-wise, I think their big breakfast plates aren’t that much cheaper than any other places in Doha like say for example our favorite breakfast nook – Shakespeare and Co. If I’m not mistaken, I think Rics Kountry Kitchen is actually more expensive than Shakespeare and Co, unless you’re going to order the smaller breakfast plates like what I did. They do have the Entertainer App voucher though which sets them apart from the rest. 🙂
So have you been initiated as a true Doha resident by having breakfast at Ric’s Kountry Kitchen yet?
