Today you join us in the Crossroads restaurant located in the City Centre Marriott Marquise. Where we’re trying out their Sunday Street Food theme ‘Noodles’. At just QR 65 for a choice of 2 noodle dishes out of a possible 4, it represents tremendous value. And if you watch the video, you will see that it’s 100% authentic.

Steve and I would like to thank Chef de Cuisine in charge of crossroads: chef Jega. And Chef de Partie Munira. Both from Malaysia. Who prepared two amazing dishes for us.

We came to Crossroads Kitchen to try their fish and chips got talking about the great Scottish delicacy which is deep fried Mars bars. And the staff at Marriott Marquis very kindly prepared some for us.

Rachel wasn’t a big fan. But I was completely blown away by them. Just look into my eyes when I take my first bite.

Come and experience traditional fish and chips with Rachel Morris who in my opinion is Qatar’s number one food critic. And she’s also the owner and operator of life on the wedge Which is Qatar’s must read food and travel blog. And joining her is myself, Brian Candy. A bloke who likes eating a lot and talking a lot.
You join us At Crossroads Kitchen A street food restaurant within the Marriott Marquis Doha. Offering great food from around the world at exceedingly reasonable prices.

Coffee shops in Doha are easy to find. There are many types here, from global franchises to quirky locally owned places. You will certainly not miss out! However the price of your favourite coffee in Doha may seem expensive. Especially compared with other cities. So if you fancy a reasonably priced cuppa where do you go?

Fear not Qatar Quick has the answer. Read on.

Only five minutes walk from DECC metro station, opposite the Tornado Tower – you will see Monoprix supermarket. Monoprix is a French supermarket with several branches in Qatar. In my opinion, they also sell the best croissants.

Just next to the entrance, look left and you will see a red Volkswagen camper van with no roof. Might sound strange, but this is a coffee shop. They sell a range of their own Monoprix coffee from QAR 12 upwards. Not only that, they also sell tea, soft drinks and water as well as snacks.

This is actually a coffee shop!

There is a range of seating to choose from and if you go at night the lighting is awesome. Drinking coffee sitting among the skyscrapers is cool, but admittedly the street view is not amazing.

However its well worth checking out if you are in the area.

Simple seating options but comfortable

From here, its a short walk to the awesome Qatar Corniche. So why not visit at night and enjoy a stroll after.
