Education City, Islamic Museum of Art, and good food

I met a friend who is a student at Education City.

LAS Building

The LAS building is where Georgetown University was but now they are moving to their new building.

We drove to the other side of Doha to the Islamic Museum of Art.

Some of my favorites:

There was a pearl exhibit from January 30 to June 5, 2010.  It was amazing and would be a great permanent addition.

My friend found us a traditional restaurant, Al Murjan Restaurant (مطعم مرجان) [close by Al migrab Roundabout ( دوار المغراب) near Al-muthaff Street)], to eat dinner in.  There were no menus so we ordered the specials.

The amazingly delicious dinner we had contained:
 - Two fried fishes (cooked with Arabian spices and Olive oil)
 - Egyptian rice
 - A plate of shrimp fried in corn oil and seasoned with Levant's sea food seasonings
 - Gergeer salad
 - Pate bread
 - Hummus with garlic
 - water

The food was incredible and we ate in the traditional style with our hands.  Soooo good!

Then we drove around the corniche and had karuk (كرك), chai tea, at a cafe on the corniche in West Bay.
