Mangia! Mangia!

I’m a huge fan of Italian food and my ultimate dream is to go to Italy and devour the cuisine just the way Julia Roberts did in ‘Eat, Pray, Love’. Of course, this sounds as cliche as it can be, but it is one hundred percent true. As the title suggests, Mangia is Italian for Eat and that is what I did for 2 hours at the New Menu Tasting at Il Teatro restaurant.

Right from greasy creamy pasta to pizza and anti pasti, from fast food to formal dining, I’ve had Italian right from when I was a child. I’ve only grown to know that Italian that we had as children wasn’t authentic after all with a lot of Indian spice mixed in to bring in the flavour.

Not having the chance to visit many Italian restaurants in Qatar, I would recommend you visit Rosalyn at Dream Days Blog who has a  round up of the amazing Italian places in one post (she’s big on Italian food too, an amazing lifestyle blogger and a great friend).

I’ve deviated too much today from the highlight which is the launch of the New Menu at Il Teatro – Four Seasons Doha where we were invited to review the sumptuous and decadent delicacies introduced by Chef Marco Arlotti.

In one word, it was absolutely mind blowing! Since I  couldn’t attend the official media event, they were kind enough to arrange a  special evening when I’d the chef attend to me exclusively (Italian Chef with his recommendations specially for me – definitely Italy brought to me in Doha).

Fusion Restaurant Friday Brunch – Doha

How important has the Friday brunch culture become in Qatar, I ponder?  Honestly, my loyalties are mostly with weekend breakfasts, but with so many varied options for a Brunch; I wonder who would bother with waking up early in the morning. That being said, I still love breakfasts and will continue to do so. 
Coming back to ‘Friday Brunch‘ – I have finally found a boutique that cooks up a vast buffet and is true to its name Fusion located at the Governor West Bay Suites & Residences.

Ideally located in the West Bay, I would easily say that Governor Suites gave me a very Arabic feeling in terms of the ambiance, rich hospitality, warm greetings and friendly staff. The interiors is modern Arabic on the whole. Fusion at the 1st floor of the hotel is a nice dining area with a buffet widespread at the atrium circumference. To me, the buffet was well placed and a little something for every palate. We were a group of 4 invited and we all had different liking.

The hexagonal atrium had tables all around with flavors from different regions mainly concentrating on European and Arabic cuisine.
