Breakfast at Eggspectation – Medina Centrale, The Pearl Qatar

Friday food ritual for many people in Qatar can be categorized into two: breakfast or brunch. As my family prefer early morning breakfast, we usually head out from home at around 9:00am. Too early on a weekend? Nah, and the restaurants here are a testament to that. Three weeks ago, we decided to try out Eggspectation. We were expecting it to be fairly busy so we took our sweet time going there. Arrived at around 9:30 and man, what greeted us there was like lunch time on a weekday. It was full to the hilt with a 15-minute waiting time. The place was bustling and the staff were zooming in and out like busy bees. Exactly 15 minutes later, we were seated and our orders were taken.

We asked to be seated in their private dining area which was empty that time (what a treat!).  Oredered Food: Crispy calamari – QR37   It’s okay, tastes like any fried calamari I’ve had from other restaurants. Spaghetti Frutti di Mare – QR49  This dish was very nice. The pesto tasted fresh and light. The sauce was very tasy and generously sprinkled with parmesan.    Pizza Margherita – QR41    Thin crust, fresh tomato sauce and full of cheese.
