Even the rock hard candy apple...

Re: om nom nom nom!
Yeah, I'd go back. :-)
Ha! That was at the Grand Hyatt, on a Friday. I told nativeinformant
that my pictures were misleading, that they made Doha look like it's all about flowing champagne, tasty food, and hot women. This... isn't the case. But we do alright.
we do better than alright!
And yeah! She's hard to take your eyes off of! And she took half of the pictures you see here.
that looks amazingly delicious!
It was all pretty good. :^)
Lately, to sit outside, I want Pernod over much ice with a mass of muddled basil, in a julep cup/stainless steel cup so thick frost forms on outside.
May name this drink the "No Actually It Is Not That Hot/Dusty/Smelly Out Here."

that sounds awesome! saw your work at susan's place btw - beautiful!
Thank you kindly. I'll happily supply a "Not That Hot" if you ever make it to these parts.
And now I want that, too. The most pleasant time of day seems to be around seven in the morning. Maybe we should drink Pernod at seven in the morning.
Oh yes thank you it's now obvious that is the thing to do!
Um, the fish ate veggies, so that's vegetarian... right? *grin*
The buffet looked mighty tasty.
And why doesn't drink candy cocktails? Midori and gin. I'm not even a gin drinker and it still sounds Nom.
I find that when you mix sweet stuff with alcohol it tastes like medicine. but I have been known to thrown down a mai tai (or 5) on the beach in hawaii...
In my head, I wrote "who" vs "why" but same response! :)
I can see the medicine thing, but all alcohol tastes like medicine to me. A good mixer helps the medicine go down. :)
PS, if you're anywhere near a Starbucks, I recommend their Coconut Lime Frozt. It can hold a large quantity of alcohol before having any alcohol flavor. :)

Re: Nom Nom
I bet the fish ate fish.
The buffet was the size of Keller, TX. I only had the sushi, plus a few things the chefs came around with on trays.
goddamn you, this post is amazing
Thank you, I appreciate that. =P
fooooodddd pooornnn! :D oh doha, i miss you. =[
Hey, you! You're still on LJ, hooray!
You probably wouldn't recognize the place. I only started going there in 2008, and it's grown a lot. I don't tend to have the best luck with food there. Dubai is a thousand times better for that.
I bet, I talked to some Doha natives here recently and they say it's getting too commercial for their tastes. I haven't been since about 96, so i'm sure it's vastly expanded and such.
enjoy moar buffets as we enjoy your pics and stories! :D
