One of the many things I enjoy and love about expat living is a good brunch and no I don’t just mean the late breakfast kind. I mean the all you can eat and drink of 5 star food and beverages from 12-4 kind. We’ve enjoyed a variety of brunches in Doha over the last two years and the most recent was at the Four Seasons Hotel Doha at the Elements restaurant for their Ribs and Noodle Brunch.
This brunch is on the smaller side as it is aimed at those of us left behind for the summer, so it doesn’t showcase their full menu or drinks package however that doesn’t stop it from being anything less than fabulous. Two packages are available 210 QR with water and 310 QR including selected beverages and children can select a dish for free from the kids menu.
The food on offer included a wide selection of ribs, all marinated and cooked to perfection. The spicy cumin ribs were my fave as were the rendang ribs that were so incredibly tender they melted away beautifully.
There is a tasty selection of hand pulled, wok fried or boiled noodles available. We enjoyed several plates of the egg fried noodles with stir fried veg. I’m not usually a fan of dim sum but the shrimp ones looked appetising and I have to say I wasn’t disappointed. The soup bowls were also delicious and not something I’d usually bother to order when I’m dining out however both varieties (one was Japanese but I can’t remember the exact name- forgive me it’s the baby brain and the other was laksa I believe with a coconut milk based sauce) were quite refreshing and not too heavy and the chef will quite kindly explain all the ingredients to you if you need it. I think the Japanese soup was clearly the winner on our table as I’m sure we devoured at least four or five bowls of it!
Of course, what would any brunch be without a selection of sushi! I’m limited to how much of it I can eat sadly, but I did manage to squeeze in a few California rolls here and there.
Overall I’d say this brunch is great value for money and if you are still in Doha definitely go and check it out. There’s a cool laid back atmosphere and definitely a space for everyone whether you’re out with friends or dining with family. The Four Seasons always delivers quality food and we’ve never been disappointed to date! I’m sure we will try this again one last time before the end of summer!
