Meet Blogger & Food Lover Farah!

After joining us for our ENTERTAINER 2018 launch party, Blogger and food lover Farah has very kindly agreed to share some of her favourite things about Bahrain with us (and there’s nothing better than getting to know a place through the eyes of an expert!)

So good to see you for the ENTERTAINER 2018 launch event at Casa Mexicana! Which Mexican dish was your favourite?

My personal favourite was the chicken tacos, as they were very juicy and full of flavour – a must I’d say. And I’d definitely go back for the amazing churros with chocolate dip, no one should skip it!

What are 3 things you love to do in Bahrain?

I love trying new food places. It’s one of the most exciting things for me to find a great new burger joint or an authentic Indian restaurant that no one has discovered yet! I also love visiting Bahrain’s outdoor festivals and charity events that are organised by Bahraini youth, as it feels great to support these events – plus, they are a lot of fun! All Spring of Culture events are posted on their Instagram @springofculture, and the events organised by Al Riwaq Art Space can also be found on their Insta page too – @alriwaq. One of my all-time favourite events is “The Nest”, which is happening now in Adliya every weekend. Lots of good music, tasty food and fun vibes!

For charity events, @ayadi_relief is a group of amazing people who started a non-profit organisation just to help others, and they organise events fully managed and established by volunteers. I have joined them as a volunteer myself once and it was one of the best experiences I’ve ever had – I’d highly recommend.

During summer, watersports are a must for me! The newest and biggest spot for watersports is Marassi Al Bahrain in Muharraq. Check it out!

What’s your next destination?

My next destination is Oman. It will be my first time there and I’m very excited to experience everything I’ve heard about!

Which Bahrain-based Instagram accounts do you like to follow, and why?

I follow food bloggers, and lifestyle bloggers to know where to go, what to do and where to eat! Check out @iknowhatoeat, @hend_alawadhi and @a.sharif92 for funny posts.

What challenges do you face as a lifestyle blogger in Bahrain?

Bahraini bloggers often face a lack of support, compared to the media attention that bloggers and influencers get in other GCC countries.

List 3 of your favourite ENTERTAINER offers, and tell us why you love them so much!

Wingman, because I love their food, Papa John’s because they offer delivery, and Shangri-La Oman because it has saved me a fortune on my upcoming vacation!

Can you nominate the next person we should interview in Bahrain?

I think you should get in touch with @hayakhalifa22!
