So here it is, the infamous annual round up that every blogger and social media influencer has to edit and post.
2017 was a great year of foodie adventures. It costed me gaining weight but nevertheless I very much enjoyed all of them.
Part One will be about the new places and dishes I tried.
Part Two will be about my new foodie addictions
Let me start by listing the new places/dishes I tried and loved:
Manhattan Fish Market
The costumer service at the Ban Mahmoud branch is really fantastic. Plus, very delicious seafood options
Specifically their Medovnic cake. Picture says enough 🙂 Going back this year to try their breakfast options.

Hafiz Mustafa in Turkey
The most amazing dessert in Turkey! ‘Nuff said! Highly, highly recommended.
This part will showcase my 2017 foodie addiction. Dishes that I kept ordering and restaurant that I constantly revisited:
This year, I switched from ordering standard Omelet to Eggs Benedict. All thanks to the Angelina Paris! Hollandaise sauce is king of all sauces.
Tufo @ Max Restaurant
We are Max addicts at work & whenever we order from there I always have to order their Sizzling Tofu! It is spicy and mixed with Mayo!

Every morning on my way to work, small mint condition mocha with extra shot of espresso soy milk no cream 🙂 Every Single morning
Located close to my workplace, Once a month, whenever I feel stressed and completely shutting down, I pass by this place and either order their sliders or Texas Burger

Their coffee is amazing (Cereal Latte) and their desserts are unique (Cereal Cake)
Tip: not everything is on their menu. Check out their Chiller when you enter for more dessert options

Have you ever ordered something that triggered nostalgic emotions then you had to constantly order the same just to feel home again? This year, Albisana restaurant did that to me! All I wanted was knefe after that!
Another favorite filipino dish! It is prepared with either fish, chicken, or beef then mixed with onions and bell peppers then sprinkled with Mayo sauce and non cooked egg. You mix and eat. Might sound gross, but extremely delicious.

Chicken & Waffle
One of my ultimate favorites for 2017. I practically ordered it almost every time I saw it on a menu! This one is from Eggspectation

I remember ordering this dish Magnolia Bakery and being hooked for the rest of the year. Absolutely love French Toast! Morning, Lunch, and Dinner. I predict that this will continue until 2018
Sugar & Spice
I honestly cannot count the number of times I went to Sugar and Spice in 2017. One of my top three places in Qatar! If not, ever!
