Girls' Night at Market at the W

Went to Market at the W for girls' night.

soft shell crab, shrimp tempura, and salmon nigiri sushi
I couldn't resist having my favorite sushi roll there: soft shell crab. Sooo good!

We also tried the chocolate fondant cake. It had melted chocolate inside. Very yummy.

Dinner at Al Bandar in Souq Waqif

Went to dinner at Al Bandar in Souq Waqif.  I enjoyed the fattouche salad.  I don't really like lamb but I think the others enjoyed the meat.

Spicy Chicken Ogda

Had a farewell for one of my good friends leaving Qatar at Bandar Aden Yemeni restaurant.  We got the usual, but today they made the chicken ogda really spicy.  I think there were jalapeno peppers in it or something!  Still really good but our mouths were burning!

Al Ruwais

After the farm, we drove further north to Al Ruwais. On the way we saw some bird houses and more farms.

We saw a lot of mangroves in Al Ruwais which had some small black crabs living in them.

It was very pretty here on the beach.
