Summer Must Try: Aegean Seafood Basket at Mykonos

For most people, summer is about sun, beach, and vacation. For foodies like me, it is also the season of festive eating and freshest seafood. Mykonos at Intercontinental Hotel Doha invites you to experience delectable seafood goodness with their new Aegean Seafood Basket promotion.

Media Table Set-up

I recently joined an exclusive dinner invitation to try their new seafood basket feast along with other friends from media. As expected, we were in for an authentic Greek gastronomical treat as a mix of traditional mezze and fresh grilled seafood started coming in.

Cozy atmosphere.

The Sides

Taramosalata (Greek meze made from tarama, the salted and cured roe of the cod, carp, or grey mullet mixed with olive oil, lemon juice) with Squid Ink Cracker
Tzalziki (salted strained yogurt or diluted yogurt mixed with cucumbers, garlic, salt, olive oil, and lemon)
Eggplant Caviar
Dolmadakia (Greek-style stuffed vine leaves)
Freshly baked Pita Bread
Fresh Home made Fried Potatoes

The Salads

Greek Salad

Spinach Leaves with Berries and Fried Goat Cheese (my personal favorite)

The Aegean Seafood Basket

The highlight of the evening is of course, the Aegean-inspired seafood basket which is consisted of fried calamari, grilled shrimps, fried whole red mullet, grilled red sea bream, and mussels sauteed with herbs. I personally enjoyed the mussels as they are tender and nicely seasoned without overpowering the freshness of the seafood. It is best paired with white wine or Greek “Ouzo”.

 

Dessert Recommendation

If the mezze and basket isn’t enough, end the Aegean escapade with another traditional dessert: Galaktompoureko.
