This morning I was told by a colleague that a restaurant located in Doha Downtown Hotel (Al Sadd) was offering a comprehensive buffet breakfast for just QR 25. I did not believe him so he took me there. And it’s actually true, a restaurant I had never heard of called ‘Haret Jdoudna’ located within the Doha Downtown Hotel is indeed offering a full buffet breakfast for just QR 25. And it’s good!
This is McDonald’s prices for a real, proper breakfast, and it’s unlimited. Unlimited hot drinks and cold juices, cold meats, cheeses, hot selection of… oh you get the idea. Their live cooking egg station made me a delicious cheese omelette and yes that’s unlimited as well. No hidden charges for anything, not even water. All you will pay is QR 25. I could not believe it, and I had to keep checking that it was only going to cost QR 25. It was indeed only QR 25. And at the end I was so full I couldn’t even fit in one item from the selection of cakes, croissants and pastries on offer.
I was so impressed at the value being offered that I decided to write about it immediately. I haven’t blogged for a while, because nothing recently has been worth writing about. Until today.
Yesterday I was in the Mövenpick Doha for breakfast. And I had a fabulous breakfast for just QR 75 each. I considered that outstanding value for what I had. And I would recommend their breakfast to anyone. The week before I was in the ‘Indian Coffee House’ where I paid a mere QR 23 per head for unlimited breakfast buffet. But they charged QR 5 for an omelette, charged for water and only gave 1 free cup of tea and charged QR 3 for each one after that. So I ended up paying more than QR 25 per head there but considered that outstanding value as well. But ‘Haret Jdoudna’ (which I cannot pronounce) have smashed the price barrier with their breakfast. Honestly, don’t take my word for it, you have got to go and try Haret Jdoudna’s breakfast for yourself. It’s a complete bargain. You will have a fantastic breakfast and pay just QR 25. I still can’t believe my breakfast this morning was only QR 25.
Here is a map to help you find the place. Oh, and due to the roadworks, parking may be a bit tricky at the moment. But you will find somewhere to park, and it will be worth it.
Breakfast is severed daily from 6:30am until 10:30am. On Saturday’s it’s served 6:30am until 1pm. And yes it costs just QR 25 per head.
