Travelling from East to West in One Day | Street Food Night @ Doha Marriott

This post has been coming much later after my real experience, but my memories are so vivid. You'll know why as you read! When I received the invitation from Doha Marriott to try their Street Food Night, little did I know what I was going to experience. Corniche at Doha Marriott turns out to be the place which takes you on a culinary journey from places around the globe. You can take a seat at any of the restaurants along the Corniche on a Thursday night, and venture out to get the street food of your choice.

As you enter you see the juicing station. Having spotted tender coconut, even before I looked at what else was on the menu, I immediately went for it.

Then yes there are gelatos, and cupcakes but, me being a savory person moved forward. The gelatos were very enticing by the way.

I warned you that the gelatos looked real good!

Walk down the streets of Mexico, there's tacos, and tortillas. Tortillas, a type of thin, unleavened flatbread made from finely ground corn, are a staple of Mexican cuisine and have been around for hundreds of years.

Moving on from Mexico you get to have American Street food but instead of KFC you see a poster that says Oliver's Fried Chicken. It's finger-licking good I say.

And then there's burgers too. Not wanting to be full even before reaching anywhere else we move on, and reach India.

There's all sorts of chaat, pani puris, and Indian Sweets in all its glory. Walking down the Indian lane of street food, you can hear the popular songs from the 90's.

There's also several food puns that has been very well thought together by Doha Marriott's Marketing folks!

Walking along we find that there's more street food - Indonesian.

Satays have their origins in Indonesia but are also popular in the areas around - Singapore, Brunei, Thailand.

Moving on there was Japanese - sushis, and sashimis not to be mentioned. There was also okonomiyakis. Okonomiyakis are a must-try!

Okonomiyaki is often described as a Japanese pizza, but it's more like a savory pancake. Okonomiyaki was invented, they say, in Osaka, which is a city famous for cheap and good eats. Okonomiyaki is a snack more than a full meal, though it is pretty filling.

There were dim sums from the Chinese;

There's a mini bakery on the go as well with all the yummy baked goodies!

And then you reach Arabia where you find hummus, muthabbal, and more of the likes.

Guess what? There's healthy too - salads ( but it's well hidden away in the very end). So if you make it there before your cravings get you, you have got good control on your diet. :-D

Yes! I made it to the salad section, and did have them too!

Finally there's seafood market where you can choose from what you want. The same experience like going to a fish market, and doing your seafood shopping only that you get this grilled or cooked the way you want immediately!

I have shown you pictures but pictures aren't just enough to show you how good the experience was. Take a huge appetite! Go with your whole family! It's a great experience. It's on a Thursday evening- no better way to begin the weekend.
