I feel I’m one of the last people in Doha to take advantage of Supper Club at W Hotel. On Thursday, to celebrate the start of the long weekend, we went with friends to experience ourselves what I’d heard such glowing reports about. I arrived a little later than everyone else and they were keen to order and get stuck in!
For starters 3 of us opted for crispy shrimps with a honey and mustard sauce and one person chose the tomato soup. When our starters arrived I was surprised at the portion size, lots of evenly cooked, crispy shrimp with a smokey, sweet sauce which had a bit of a kick to it and some soft creamy avocado as a contrast.The tomato soup was nicely presented with sourdough and cheese in the bowl and the rich, thick soup poured at the table. For our main course we ordered one fusilli with mushrooms, one parmesan crusted chicken and two salmon with potato purée . All of the mains were well cooked and were presented with care, again all were large portions. The salmon which I ordered medium was cooked to perfection and the purée was smooth and creamy. The shredded sprouts added a bit of crunch and the black truffle emulsion brought everything together. Everyone’s clean plates spoke volumes!
For dessert the lemon tart was an absolute winner. Light, crisp pastry and a tart – but not too tart – lemon filling with a caramalised sugar topping and a small scoop of ice cream. A perfect way to end the meal.
We all thoroughly enjoyed our food and priced at for 100QR for 3 courses (20QR extra also gets you a glass of wine) it’s an absolute bargain for the quality of the food and portion sizes. Market always has a lovely ambience and on Thursday there was a nice mix of families, couples and friends starting their weekend. Service throughout was friendly and efficient but my one gripe is that plates were cleared before everyone had finished. It drives me insane but I know it’s not an issue for everyone.
Our meal cost 750QR for 4 X 3 courses including a glass of wine each, 1 cocktail, 1 additional wine, an asperol spritz, 2 diet cokes and a tip.
Supper Club is available in all three outlets at W Hotel, Market, La Spiga and Spice Market, every day 5pm – 7pm (excl Friday). If you haven’t been you really should go.
