Cheap Eats Review: Tofu House – Bin Mahmoud (near the Indian Supermarket)

My eldest sister is a big fan of everything Korean; soap opera, food, appliances, skincare, anything you can think of! So, it wasn’t a wonder that she has been urging me to visit Tofu House for quite some time now, and we finally got the chance last week. Located at one of the old towns of Doha, the restaurant looks non-descript and blends perfectly with the shops beside it. Except for the large signage bearing its name, you can easily pass it by.  The place is small with only one table on the ground floor and sits about 30 persons max at the 1st floor. And boy, it was packed! We were the 4th in queue and there were about 5 after us. It’s good though, a packed place mostly means that they have a patronage which also means they serve good food. It’s bad because the waiting time is bound to make you cranky. We finally got our turn to sit and wasted no time ordering. Food was served within 15 mins., which was …

Red Lobster: General Review

Food Review: Good food. Serving and taste is consistent in all the times that we’ve been there. Their wood-grilled scallops, shrimps, and lobster tail are a must try. If you’re not a fan of grilled foods, you can opt for the steamed ones. Their clam chowder and lobster bisque are spot on. The only time that blundered was with their mussels. The second time we ordered it, it was very salty and they immediately apologized and changed it when we informed them. Customer Service Review: Their staff is nice, approachable and knowledgeable about their menu. The restaurant ambiance is relaxed and casual. Price Qr 80 per person (approx.) Returning? Definitely!
