2022 has been an exciting year for the food scene in Doha. Doha saw a lot of new hotels opening. New hotels meant more restaurants, La Gourmandise is one such new restaurant that is a day dining restaurant situated in Le Meridian City Centre. It serves international favorites from all around the world.
Its opening timings are as follows –
Breakfast -6.30 – 10.30
Lunch – 12.00 – 16.00
Dinner – 18.00 – 23.00.
I visited it one Saturday morning for its breakfast buffet which cost 125 riyals. If you are a Silver and above Marriot Bonvoy members get a 20 percent discount. It is a decent spread for the amount you pay! Unlike other restaurants, they have loads of Vegetarian options.
The best thing about the decor is those huge floor-to-ceiling windows, that look onto the dramatic roads of West Bay .other than that it’s all ordinarily decorated.
They also have a couple of Indian dishes and if you are obsessed with Poha ( an Indian breakfast dish made of flattened rice ) like me, this is your to-go place. What I also loved was the sauteed Spinach, never ever have I enjoyed Spinach so much. The only thing was that the food was cold ( we reached almost in the end ), which could have easily been fixed . But then again cold food does not bother me.
What also left an everlasting impression was how slow the bread toasters are ( like all restaurants ) and they still come out, without being toasted, Am I missing anything here !!
Not sure if they are on any of the delivery apps..
