Sofra at Alwadi Hotel MGallery is where you can enjoy traditional cuisine with contemporary tastes. The charming restaurant is designed to be reminiscent of Qatari culture and local traditions, with dhow boats, pearl diving and travel bags adorning the walls.
Feast on the finest Levant cuisine and regional delicacies in the most unique and generous servings – tempting speciality dishes, which are available à la carte during dinner.
Our dinner began with very delicious, fulfilling cold and hot mezzes with a Sofra Signature Hummus Selection, which are six of the chef’s exceptional signature hummus preparations – different flavours such as Hummus Beiruti (hummus with parsley, lemon juice and cumin powder), Avocado Hummus (hummus with avocado puree), Chili Hummus (hummus with chili paste), Hummus with Pomegranate Molasses (hummus blended with pomegranate molasses), and Meat Hummus (hummus served with minced lamb and pine nuts).
Following this immense selection of hummus, we enjoyed a richly flavoured Lebanese Fattoush with fresh cut tomato, cucumber, onion, capsicum, lettuce, mint leaves, fresh zaatar and special chef dressing, and a very tasty Tabbouleh with Pomegranate with dried pomegranate seeds and dressing. It’s Tabbouleh galore on Sofra’s menu, offering Traditional Tabbouleh, Tabbouleh with Green Apple and Tabbouleh with Pineapple. We also enjoyed Labneh with Beetroot. The menu also has Labneh with Garlic, Labneh Keshka and Labneh with Olives.
Then the Hot Mezzes graced our table, including Fried Shrimp Kibbeh (homemade kibbeh stuffed with minced shrimp, fresh coriander and pine nuts). The menu also offers Grilled Kibbeh, Fried Meat Kibbeh, Fried Chicken Kibbeh, and Fried Lamb Kibbeh with Pomegranate. This was followed by the Chef Selection of Mixed Fatayer (homemade wrapped fatayer stuffed with minced lamb, fresh cheese and spinach), Fried Halloumi Cheese (breaded and fried halloumi cheese with mint sauce), Potato Harra (fried cubed potato with garlic, chili paste, lemon juice and chopped fresh coriander), and Soujok with Pomegranate Molasses (soujok sausages cooked with pomegranate molasses).
Then, feeling fully appetised, we enjoyed a succulent Grilled Meat Grand Platter, which is charcoal grilled Australian lamb chops, shish tawook, lamb kebab and kofta, served with Khashkhash sauce, muhammara flat bread and steak fries, and a juicy Chicken Shawarma, served with homemade garlic sauce, cucumber pickles and fries.
Now, it’s time for dessert – as if we had space, but how can you say no to their delectable menu offering? We had Oriental Chocolate, which is dark chocolate cream with nuts and dried fruits infused with jasmine tea.
This delicious dinner is one we look forward to enjoying again soon. It’s the best of the Levant cuisine in a way you haven’t experienced it before.
