One of my (Karen) favorite places to eat in the city is without a doubt the very distinct Shakespeare & Co. at The Pearl Qatar because not only is the food great but the prices won’t break the bank plus the design of the outlet is exquisite with its intricate chandeliers, fancy upholstery and antique frames. We cannot quite compare it to anything else here in Qatar since the concept is truly different from the usual.
Shakespeare & Co. at The Pearl Qatar just recently celebrated its first birthday and we were asked to drop them a visit to sample some of the new food items they have added to their already extensive menu.
We have our own old favorites from the place like the Shrimp & Avocado Sandwich in addition to the Smoked Salmon Salad hence we went ahead to try only 2 items from the new dishes which are the Tortellini Pasta and the Praline Cookie Jar.
As expected, the sandwich and salad still had the same flavors & textures which proves that the outlet has consistency. As for the Tortellini, the pasta was a tad undercooked in my (Karen) opinion. It could have used a few more minutes in boiling water but other than that it was still good. You know how when we were kids, our parents would not allow us to take out cookies from the cookie jar? Thankfully we’re adults now so it’s ok to be quite sinful and just indulge on the praline cookie jar which was truly delicious but a bit sweet.
Also, since October is breast cancer awareness month, Shakespeare & Co. have selflessly decided to donate 10% of the profits earned for any “PINK” food / item (i.e. pink lemonade, pink box of chocolates) purchased from their outlet to the Qatar Cancer Society. Isn’t that awesome??
We’re sure almost everyone in Doha has visited them so let us know in the comments section which is your favorite dish from them in order for us to check it out on our next visit! 🙂
Thank you once again to the team of Shakespeare & Co. for the lovely lunch we had and Happy 1st Birthday!!!!
