Damasca One – Souq Waqif: Take me back to Syria!

I love this restaurant for one reason. Well, there are other ones as well but for the most part it reminds me of Syria. I remember when I used to visit Syria just to have lunch or dinner. During my high school days, it was an annual event to visit Syria for a weekend or just for a quick Suhoor during Ramadan.

I’ve been wanting to visit Damasca One for a long time and I finally did. The whole ambiance truly felt like I was back in those old and dusty but amazingly historic alleyways. They even sell food in mini trucks alongside the restaurant with the seller yelling out words that just felt like being in Syria for a moment.

Their food is also very delicious. Syrians are well known for their food quality and the tendency for the homemade vibe. Damasca One definitely served that well.

The Hummus with meat was well done. I’ve had better but come one, just the idea of hummus is making me hungry right now.

The Grilled Boneless Chicken was absolutely delicious. The best I’ve had so far in Doha. The chicken was juicy, tender, and perfectly seasoned.  I think I’ll keep going  back just to order it again. One downside is that it is overly priced compared to other restaurants (108 QR).

Damasca One Mixed grill was also impressive. It consisted of lamb skewer, shish tawook, meat kebab, and chicken. They were all tender, juicy and cooked just the right way. Although it was overpriced, I did not regret ordering it.

Oh, and their Shisha is really really really goooood!!!!

Cheers 🙂
