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.
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.
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”.
If the mezze and basket isn’t enough, end the Aegean escapade with another traditional dessert: Galaktompoureko.
The Aegean Seafood Basket (with mezze and sides) is available for QAR 125 every Sunday and Monday. Promo runs from July 2-August 31, 2017.
