You read that right! Normally, on Fridays, we go to our friend Alex’s apartment and make pancakes for breakfast. This morning, many of us wanted to sleep in and decided to do lunch a little later on.
We have heard about Ric’s Kountry Kitchen, as Doha’s local greasy spoon so we were curious to try it out for ourselves. It is located close to our apartment, so that was a good thing. We got there, and saw the sign as I have written it – Ric’s Kountry Kitchen with a K. We were excited to give it a try and had no idea what to expect.
We walked in and saw an assortment of state flags hanging up. Everything from Kansas to Wyoming and even Texas, etc. We are guessing they are gifts from the customers who visit from all over the world. There was also a Terrible Towel, so that was a good sign! 🙂
There were 6 of us, so we had to wait a little while for a table, but they were very accommodating and helped us get situated at a table pretty quickly. We sat down and checked out the menu – all sorts of good breakfast items, including ‘ham’. They also had lunches and appetizers, so everyone could find something to eat.
We ordered and waited a bit for our food, but it was worth it! I had what was called The Rig, which was texas french toast, eggs, and sausage patties. It was quite tasty! My friend got the fake ham with her eggs and toast, and it was pretty tasty! They have substitutes for pork products – which are not too bad!
Overall, we really enjoyed our experience! We actually went back this morning with some other friends to eat more greasy spoon food! This time I got the Doha Special, which is 2 eggs, texas toast, home fries and ‘ham’. (No clue what it is made out of). I got my eggs overeasy, and with the texas toast, it was delicious! Another good breakfast at Ric’s.
If you’re in Doha, and want to check it out, here are directions, as posted on Qatar Living:
Located on Ras Abu Aboud Street, in the same small shopping center area where Sana and Giant are. Coming from the Corniche, turn up by the old Movenpick (across from the Islamic Museum). Go straight at the traffic lights, and at the small R/A ahead turn left. Ric’s is 50 m away on the right side.
We will definitely be going back soon!
