Iraqi Bread

We like to pick up fresh Iraqi bread at Souq Waqif. It costs 1QR (about 25 cents) for 5 pieces. My favorite is eating it when it is still warm, and I love watching it being made.

They take balls of dough and throw them a little like pizza dough, but then they lay it on a big round pillow like form to place it in the oven, which is actually a converted cement mixer.

It is pressed onto the sides of the oven, where it sticks

It is prodded and pulled out by a long metal rod

They always have people waiting for fresh bread

Most people order large stacks of the bread

Nice and fresh

Waiting patiently for her hot bread
