Family, friends and non-Zoom-related fun isn’t all we’re craving during this lockdown — being parted from our favourite dishes at Doha’s restaurants has us feeling a certain type of way. With Eid-ul-Fitr being around the corner and as the number of days you have to prepare for the celebratory dinner dwindles, some of us might just opt-out of cooking altogether by choosing a simpler alternative — outsourcing our Eid dinner.
Catering your Eid dinner and not having to worry about dry meat or burnt cookies can make it easier for some of us to enjoy the holiday.
Luckily, several restaurants offer the finest gourmet Eid takeaways — delivering right to your doorstep. These packages contain all of your classic cravings, and some have special twists unique to the restaurant and others let you create your own menu.
