Firstly, This is one of the best kind of meetup that I haven't been before in Qatar, You know why? #FoodTesting!
Over a meal, or in a buffet where we chooses our food what we prefer is common, but this meant to be a kind of #foodtesting, or that's how I felt then. Over 6 meals to share following a starter, and dessert in the end!!
Didn't you get mouth-watering yet? Read below. ;)
Food Bloggers Qatar Meet was held on the evening of November the 24th at Aceite, Melià Doha, which is located in West bay.

Unfortunately I was late, should have missed first bits but when I entered.. I found a long table kept ready to serve meals!! Oh yea! I hurried myself and sat on a chair meanwhile the event host, Doaa of #hungrybirdsdoha received me with her signature smile. :-)
Before they serve meals, Doaa gave us a quick intro along with the event partners, a chef and members of venue were presented about their cuisine, then Hala (Zomato) and Kevin (Messo) had given us a quick catchup about their websites/apps.
And, then much-awaited FOODS were served, while live-band there kept playing Spanish tracks and gave everybody a good vibe and atmosphere!
As a newbie food blogger I wasn't met anybody in prior rather Ms.Hala of #ZomatoQatar, so I was tried my best to say more Hi!(s). It's been more easier as everybody was up and tuned to socializing! Also we're asked to swap our seats twice by the host, so literally this event made us meet more! :)
I had some good chats with Kevin of Messo App, Hani of Dine at Dawn, Kiran of Yummy Mummy in Doha, Abdul-Rahman of Where2EatQTR, Allyson of Life with Karlly, Gayathri of My Pressure Cooker and the event host, Doaa of Hungry Birds Doha. I also met Khansa of Creativity with Kay, Lou-Ann of Live, Love and Lou, Polly of Follow Your Sunshine and some other hungry-makers!
The quiz-time was fun and I got a Jones The Grocer voucher from #ZomatoQatar!! Also, we all sent with handful goodies from #MeliàDoha and #ZomatoQatar too!! :D - After all sweetness, with all the lasting memories of the event, I got back home by a #CareemDoha ride. :)
Thank you for having me there, a big salute to Doaa of #HungryBirdsDoha and her all partners who made this event happened!! #Aceite of #MeliàDoha, #ZomatoQatar, #CareemDoha and #MessoApp.
Finally, a big apologise for the time I have taken to write this up!
(Shhh.. #timemanagement on my to-do list. ;)
