Salsa at Doha Marriott Hotel

cheese, pico de gallo, & guacamole
Salsa is great if you are missing Tex-Mex. I tried the steak fajitas. The quality and cooking of the steak was decent (Chipotle has better steak) but what made it good was the seasoning. The steak came with onions and green, red, & yellow peppers. The meal came with soft flour tortillas, refried beans, Mexican rice, guacamole, and sour cream. I also requested cheese and pico de gallo (tomatoes & onion mix). Next time I will have to order about 10 times as much cheese as there was just about a pinch of shredded cheese on the plate--enough for 1/4 or 1/2 of a fajita taco. The amount of guacamole and pico de gallo was also insufficient but not as lacking as the cheese. The taste was good for the first 1/2 taco that I could make. The salsa (mango, normal red, and spicy green) that came with the chips in the beginning were also a good addition to the tacos. Overall, it was a good meal but the prices are way too high (135 QR) and they need to be much more generous with the portions of taco fillings. On a side note, I hear the ribs are really good.

Something that surprised me was that they had sangria. It wasn't listed on the menu but they have it by the glass or in pitchers, just like in Barcelona! The sangria was great and perfect with the meal. The pitcher was quite big as well!

Regarding the atmosphere, the live music was quite loud so it was really hard to have a conversation. It might be good if the music was a little quieter so people don't have to yell to be heard.
