My name’s Brian Candy and this is one of my best mates, Steve Mackie. And together were going to take you on a tour of Qatar’s must visit restaurants and have a jolly good chat to the people behind the food as well.

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.
