To end my Eid day, I stopped by Chef’s Garden for a quiet evening dinner, away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Chef’s Garden, located at Marwan Club in Al Shaqab, is a hidden gem in Doha. With its clean aesthetic interior, providing you with a view of its great outdoors, its luscious lawn and welcoming pool views, it is certainly a place to delight.
The seasonal menu featuring organically grown local produce and its fresh fish specialties, organic meats seasoned with fresh herbs grown in their very own herb garden, are enough to whet one’s appetite.
I opted for Sesame Crusted Salmon, a baked sesame seed salmon with a lobster bisque sauce and homemade potato gnocchi. The salmon baked to medium rare, so delicate to the palate yet full of flavour complemented by fresh vegetables cooked al dente, crisp on the outside and soft and tender inside—is an ideal way to maximize their nutritional value.
Being Eid Day, the restaurant was relatively quiet. So, I got the full attention of the friendly staff.
