Expat Life in Qatar

Doha | Spice Market at W Doha Hotel

Spice Market Doha

I was not supposed to make this blog entry since I wasn’t able to take good photos from Spice Market while there. The lighting was too dim and my camera’s too low-tech, not a perfect combination. I realized though that it would’ve been unfair to not write about it and tell you how much I’ve loved it so here goes, please don’t mind the bad quality of the photos though.

This visit to Spice Market was a spur-of-the-moment thing, we were not supposed to be there – in fact, we were supposed to be in a lavish event in a fine-dining setting however, the said event was something I would describe as an unsuccessful one. Of course I’m not going to say what event it was or where but if you do follow me on Snapchat (which you should, my username is PinayFlyingHigh) and remember the time I was in an event and suddenly I was in a different restaurant – then you’d know what it was. If you do know or remember, let’s all just keep it a secret shall we? * wink * wink *

Anyway, we went to Spice Market to satisfy our hunger (oddly enough, the event that we were in of course was a foodie event but we were hungry! I guess that says a lot about how unsuccessful it was) and gladly, they were still serving food at 10 in the evening. I know Spice Market wouldn’t let us down as it has always been consistent on serving great food, in a comfortable setting and delivering topnotch service. The place was still buzzing when we arrived and immediately ordered Vietnamese Spring Rolls, 2 orders of Spicy Thai Fried Chicken Wings and Kimchi Rice with a special instruction of: Bring anything on the table as soon as it’s cooked! We were THAT hungry.

The spring rolls came first which at that time tasted to me like little drops of heaven – crunchy on the outside and healthy on the inside. The spicy Thai fried chicken wings was too spicy for my taste though, I normally like spicy food but this one was quite bothering really. I would normally enjoy eating this level of spicy in my food with a glass of beer however, I was driving that night so I had to skip the alcohol. Spicy or not, I still finished the whole serving. The kimchi rice was I would say the highlight of our meal. It was topped with spicy glazed short rib, the meat was so tender it’ll melt in your mouth.

We practically inhaled all of the food as it was gone seconds after it was laid on our table. We didn’t even mind how hot or spicy almost everything that we ordered, we just wanted to satisfy our hunger with a good quality of food. I have to say that Spice Market at W Doha Hotel saved the night for us – it was a great last minute decision.

    Oh I love Vietnamese food, mostly the noodle/soup dishes and the egg rolls of course. Salivating at the sight of the eggrolls, no fooling!

      I had a good laugh reading your You Know You’re in Khao San Road post. 🙂
      The ones in the streets of Thailand are definitely much tastier than these. This one’s too clean. :p
