LET’S START WITH SHAWARMA!
And so I have found another shawarma jaunt folks, a charcoal grilled shawarma place no less. It has been a few months since it opened, and with other “quickie- food” outlets in its immediate vicinity, this Woqod Station just became my favorite
fast-food station fuel station ever!
Shawarma Booteela, Woqod Petrol Station, Nuaija 41, Al Hilal
My favorite is the classic- Chicken Shawarma Plate
The Shawarma plate (apart from bread and chicken) comes with a side of fries, pickles, cabbage salad, and garlic dipping sauce. If you are a shawarma fiend like I am, then do give this a taste.
REVAMPED FAMILY BEACH
Finally! Shaded play and picnic areas.
Family Beach, Al Wakra
About time I say!

FOR THE STATIONERY JUNKIES!
Everybody who is a parent with kids in school (and therefore needs school supplies every week) and anybody who drools over a mere writing instrument or a patterned post-it (aka “stationery junkie”) will know what and where RAWNAQ is/ was.
The good news – the place has been given a face-lift and the stocks spruced.
The not so good news- the store now has an almost inappropriate/ weird name.
Seriously though, why “New Remedy”? And “international services”? Am I missing something here?
I could live here, sampling nibs and paper for eternity. Or perhaps open and shut boxes forever!
MOBILE ACCESSORIES HAVEN.
I have been looking for a case/ cover for my old iPad 4 for a while now. It’s spotless, and now that the little one has become it’s primary user, a cover seems warranted. What I did not take into account was how difficult it is to get an esthetic, functional, reasonably priced one in Doha.
Jarir, LuLu, Virgin, Sharaf DG; all had the mundane, bulky, overpriced meh stuff.
The Belkins, Capdases and Apple Cases- I have used them all and they are mostly sub- par to say the least. Just when I had given up..
Mobile and tablet accessories.
Al Watan Shopping Centre, Airport Road (Near “Sword” Signal)
45 QAR for the iPad cases (versus 100-120 QAR for the tacky ones at malls).
This place reminds of me similar get- anything- computer-mobile-tab-related-centers back home (Sweet BLR!) 🙂
AND IF YOU LIKED THOSE BAGS..
that I spoke of in my previous posts, yes… the Ted Baker makeup bags. Head to Ted Baker, some were on promotion the other day.
New Ted Baker store in town.
Lagoona Mall, West Bay.
The prices on some items are lower than marked on the products. Request staff to check prices on the system.
Hope you have a lovely weekend folks!
Till next time.
