Baba Sausage – 01 Mall

Take Away: Al Nashama Restaurant & Sweets – Muntazah

Review The best kunafa in Doha. If you are craving or would like to try Arabic sweets, you can’t go wrong with Al Nashama. Typical of sweets shops here in Qatar, they have a wide range of sweets like kunafa and baklava in all shapes and sizes. I especially like the white one (I don’t know what it’s called, I just point at it) which is creamy and dreamy. It’s an explosion of coconut, milk, and rose water.
