GINGER SATURDAY BRUNCH, KHALIFA PARK HOTEL. Last minute decision for lunch as we came from a bday party and kids were so tired. Nothing ready at home... but it takes us just 2 min to get to Ginger Rest. Lets give it a try.
We were lucky, only some tables left. Venue is very nice. Designed in a contemporary style, the outlet offers trendy indoor and outdoor seating. And very comfy. And very green. Pastel green palette. I'm crazy about green, so good vibes: relaxed and peaceful. Welcoming smiling from all the staff 🙂
Our waitress offered us a quick tour revealing a very stylish buffet presentation. There were a little bit of almost everything for everyone. Fantastic and very fresh salad station (our favourite stop) different kinds of pasta to order for, lots of nice and again, fresh little bites. Smoked cuts sandwiches. Indian corner and arabic mezze and main dishes.
For me, newest of smoked salmon is always a critical indicator in a buffet. Here, smoked salmon toast wast to die for. Biryani was terrific too and meat cuts bbq'd to perfection. While still in shock about quality of food, my mom got emotional about baked chicken with potatoes. Nice memories of her childhood. Simple, perfect.
Dessert. We are not a huge fun of it. I guess. Sorry. I'm lying. We believe we are not dessert lovers, but we could spend the whole day eating tiramisu, carrot cake or chocolate fondant. So sorry again, I'm getting confused 😉 We love dessert but we try not to eat too much. Now!!! Only a little treat with a coffee to finish the party. OMG, let me say we all had the best strawberry tarlet ever.
All in all, an amazing brunch experience for a Saturday Lunch Hotel. I wonder if this top food was due to they had lots of previous reservations (families, friends and a Qatari football club) or this is happening every weekend. I am determined to get back and find it out.
