Be Social Brunch at Aramede - Crowne Plaza Business ParkSunday, March 29, 2015
Looking for a great place to have brunch on a Friday? I luckily got an invite from Doaa of Hungry Birds Doha (she also manages Food Bloggers Qatar, God bless her) for brunch at Crowne Plaza's Aramede Restaurant for their Be Social Brunch.
"Why Be Social?" you might ask. Well, there's kind of two answers to that question. First, we all need to put down our phones every now and then and start being social at the dinning table. That's just what we, together with the lovely ladies of Food Bloggers Qatar, did. Subsequently, they also encourage social media, which we all know everyone uses these days as a means of communication. Thus, the hashtag #BeSocialBrunch.
I arrived at Crowne Plaza a little past 12:30 and I'm embarrassed to say the I missed the first part of the tour. But that doesn't mean I didn't get the chance to try all the food, I just don't have enough photos. I'll just have to direct you to the other bloggers (read on until the bottom for a link to their blogs) who were also there with me.
The very first thing I notice when I entered Aramede was this very attractive wall of cupcakes, which is both welcoming and tempting.
They offer a variety of food from salads to curries, cupcakes to cheeses, pizza to sushi. I'm sure you can get something, whichever cuisine you fancy.
So here's where I caught up with them...

They have shrimp, calamari, mussels, oyster and octopus. You can ask them to cook it any way you want. Our table had buttered garlic shrimp which Allyson (of Life with Karlly) requested to be cooked and graciously shared with all of us.
Now, the sushi spread was my favorite part of the buffet. Unlimited maki, sashimi and nigiri sounds good, right? Mind you, all their seafood are fabulously fresh.

Of course, this brunch was not just about the food but also the company and conversations you have. I'm so glad to have shared the table with these fascinating ladies from Doha. Talk about being social, we chatted about anything and everything under the sun; from food to family, etc. I would like to thank Doaa for getting this group together and to Crowne Plaza for having us for brunch.

I was also overjoyed to finally meet Noemi of The Greek Pinay and Pinay Flying High who was also a guest together with her husband. We've been in touch for a while trying to meet up. And then we bump into each other here, of all places. But I think she agrees when I say that we must do something again (together and soon).
