The Qatari cuisine can be best described as a simple cuisine that uses simple cooking techniques deeply rooted in the seasonal authentic flavors of the Bedouin life that were passed on to our current generation. Qatari Cuisine has a hint of influence from India, and Persia in the past, and shares commonly well-known dishes with other GCC Countries.

In Qatar, a typical morning breakfast will compromise of Rogag (with the spread of cheese, honey, or jam, or will contain egg filling), and Balalet, during lunch, a traditional main course will be Asida, Harees (Also known as Jareesh), Kabsa, Margouga, Salona, Madroba, Machboos rice with Hammour, to name a few.

For desserts Qataris enjoy eating Khabees, Kanfaroosh, and Lugaimat.
