Doha Brunch and the Candy Apple Series

I mentioned that last week, I had brunch in Doha with nativeinformant. What I didn't mention was that I cast my vegetarianism aside for the day, and ate a lot of raw fish. I'd been thinking about it - no, dreaming about it - for about six weeks, and trying so hard to resist. A 390 riyal buffet (that's over USD $100) seemed like the opportunity to scratch the itch. Sorry, fish. I'm back on the wagon now.






Smoked salmon, scrambled eggs, and rocket on a zaatar croissant.


Look at Laura. Isn't she wow? Here, she's stuck a sugary flower to her face with chocolate sauce.


Neha and me, posed. Apparently, this is how we pose.


I'd noticed the candy apples when we entered, and I was looking forward to having one. I imagined sticky, sweet caramel. My friends fetched it for me, and were giggling as they presented me with it.


The candy shell was diamond hard. I couldn't break (or even chip at it) with my knife.


Breaking the shell with our teeth was an impossibility.


It was funny to watch each other try.


WHY WAS IT SO HARD?


I stab it with my steeley knife...


That was not easy.


Brunch was followed by these concoctions of gin and midori. nativeinformant had wine, as she doesn't drink candy cocktails.
