Omelette, Omelette Croissants and Manakeesh. QAR: 8 to 35. Pretty diverse, ain’t it?
What we ate:
Okay, before I start talking about the food, I will talk about their service.
Snail pace food preparation and serving time. The waiting staff also have a penchant for getting orders wrong. I ordered a Pizza Manakeesh but what I got was assorted manakeesh instead. No way did I have any hope for the food. When I had my first bite, it was a total game changer. Soft bread with a little less amount of toppings quantity but warm just to the right degree.
Kavi: As soon as you walk into Brazilia, the stench of a horrible mistake hits you. It is a mixture of cigarette smoke, terrible music and shady patrons. No this is not a seedy night club. Just a terribly managed cafe. I ordered an item named intriguingly “Brazilia’s Omelette Croissant”. What I had imagined I would get was this or this or even this. After having waited for what felt like a week, our food finally arrived. As you can see, the croissant was nowhere to be found. We decided to wait a few minutes, given Doha’s traffic; it is understandable if the croissant was stuck in a jam (see what I did there?). But it never showed up. We reminded the waiter about the other promised half of my ordered food and he shook his head and pointed in the general direction of cold stale croissants in a plastic box sitting next to last week’s cakes and pastries in the display.
The weight of crushing disappointment ruined the taste of what appeared to be a rather delicious omelette. I am hard pressed to justify another visit to this dark hole (no, it was literally dark in there).
Go when you have a lot of time on your hands and laze around till your food arrives.
