PRIME RESTAURANT PROMISES NEW AND EXCITING DISHES, BUT WILL IT LIVE TO STEAK CONNOISSEURS’
EXPECTATIONS? QH FINDS OUT.
Known to be a bold, dining destination Prime promises the finest selection of cuts, and now, the venue has launched a new menu with succulent and hearty dishes. We visited the stylish and elegant hotspot for a true dining experience.
We kicked our evening off with a selection of appetizers, which are not your so typical entrees. We were showered with a delicious beetroot foie gras, with slowly cooked apple and beetroot bites topped up with chocolate oil and cranberry sauce. If you opt for this delicacy, we recommend mixing all ingredients on the plate for a powerful explosion of flavours in your mouth. And for the sea lovers, we’ve got your covered, we gave the crab & sweet pea panna cotta a go with also a soy and peach dashi sorbet and lemon and soya gel. This dish in particular holds a strong mix flavour, which we highly recommend to try, perfect for two. And last but not least our last appetizer, which left us over the moon, was a fine selection of short ribs slowly cooked for over 36 hours; perfectly tender, easy to bite and with a taste like no other. Our favourite so far.
As our evening progressed, the venue got busier by the minute, creating great atmosphere oozing elegance for those who seek an evening with a little bit of sparkle. And being one of Doha’s steak hotspots, it comes as no surprise the venue delivers more than just fine dining.
Said that, our main course proves how Prime delivers what they say they know best: exquisite taste. We ordered their triple cooked crispy lamb ribs – no, you didn’t read that wrong, triple! The lambs are beyond tender with an Asian soya glaze, garlic confit and homemade chips. The lamb ribs are first boiled, then braised for 3hrs and ending with a crispy fry. And boy, were they phenomenal – we say this dish is a must-try.
If you’re looking to enjoy with family and friends, or a special evening with your better half, QH recommends this foodie place for a fantastic dining experience where not only your cuisine expectations will be surpassed, but also, service and ambience.
