FROM TSUK­IJI TO DOHA

Qatar Today - - CITY LIFE > DOHA DIARY -

No­zomi, the fine din­ing con­tem­po­rary Ja­panese life­style restau­rant from Lon­don and Riyadh, is now serv­ing up in­trigu­ing Far East­ern culi­nary creations at the Pearl-Qatar.

The chic out­let is the fi­nal restau­rant to open at the com­plex that houses An­tica Pesa and Toro Toro. It of­fers 228 seats down­stairs in the restau­rant, in­clud­ing the out­door pa­tio, and 143 seats in the up­stairs lounge with stun­ning views of the Marsa Malaz Kempin­ski ho­tel and the sea. The city's me­dia were given a sneak pre­view of the restau­rant's of­fer­ings - each more de­lec­ta­ble and dra­matic than the last. The smoked sashimi was fol­lowed up by gor­geous fresh-wa­ter Alaskan crabs, unagi and foie gras, and the fa­mous Kobe beef sir­loin. The ex­ec­u­tive chef ex­plained that all the seafood is spe­cially flown in from the fa­mous Tsuk­iji fish mar­ket in Tokyo, from one merchant specif­i­cally who x-rays each fish, squid and shrimp to en­sure they are of the high­est qual­ity. The dessert boat had an ex­cel­lent chocolate fon­dant, an in­ter­est­ing dessert sushi and an in­no­va­tive miso ice cream. The up­stairs lounge of­fers up some great mu­sic, along with wood-smoked cock­tails and views of the sea.

So­cial net­work­ing web­site, Qatar Liv­ing, cel­e­brated its 10th an­niver­sary at the Sher­a­ton Ho­tel and Con­ven­tion Cen­tre Doha with a gala din­ner on Oc­to­ber 15.

Qatar Liv­ing an­nounced fu­ture plans in­clud­ing a re­designed web­site as well an Ara­bic lan­guage version that will be launched soon. Guests who at­tended the event walked away with prizes in­clud­ing round-trip tick­ets to Dubai. Qatar Liv­ing also hosted sev­eral Qatar-based star­tups like Meddy, Rinfo, and Fu­ture In­ter­na­tional Foot­ball Acad­emy at the event.
