ATTENTION CARNIVORES! Are you ready to have that meat sweat and devour an unlimited choice of cuts? Do you want to spend an overnight staycation in one of Doha’s iconic hotels this weekend for FREE? It’s time to unleash your inner meat beast with Oryx Rotana Doha‘s Butcher’s Night Steak-cation offer.
It was in July of 2015 when I last went for an all-meat night joining my friends for a Churrascaria night. After that (a week of constipation), I decided to go 180 and became a pescatarian since then. Not until I went back to food blogging this year, I wasn’t eating a single slice of meat. A week ago, I found myself back in Choices, not for the Seafood Night, but this time, to be a carnivore for a night.
Do you wanna know what’s in store?
If you have been to any other theme night from Choice, you’ll be familiar with how the set up is. There are stations for your salads and starters, sushi (quite a staple in most buffets across Doha), and your choice of sides to go with your choice of meat. Take your pick from onion rings, hash browns, corn cobs and even that rich mac and cheese among others.
I guess for any meat-lover or just a curious head like me, it starts with one tough decision of where to start and which one to pick first. With over 15 selection of prime cuts, I won’t blame you if you’ll find it hard to do a MEATiculous decision. Porterhouse, T-bone, Rib-eye, Lamb chops, even the juiciest burger patties, they’re all here.
Once done deciding which meats you want to devour, head over to the grill station and let the chefs do the rest for you. Let them know how do you want your meat to be done and they will take care of it. That is the perfect time for you to get your sides or get your drinks. Alcohol packages are also available. Steak SHOULD be paired with wine, right?
Butcher’s Night Steak-cation Impression
The Oryx Rotana Doha’s Butcher’s Night Steak-cation offer has been on-going for months. If you haven’t tried and you’re into meat (like most of Doha’s population in general), you are missing a fantastic deal. With a wide assortment of meat choices, chances of being disappointed are slim to none. Surely, there is something for everybody.
Being not so fanatic of meat, I decided to go easy (yes, I was EASY with what I am going to enumerate) with my choices during my visit. My friend and I tried:
I’ve always preferred my steak rare and that night, I was satisfied with how my meat was cooked (is SEARED even more appropriate since it’s rare? Kidding). While the doneness of the meat was on point, I wish we could tweak the seasoning a bit. It was leaning closer to the bland side and I’m glad some condiments were handy to give some flavor. I like my meat with just plain salt and pepper, and just a dash more of that could have made my steaks perfect.
The lamb chops and kofta were flavorful on the contrary and every bite was a bliss. As for the burger patty, I specifically asked for it to be well-done, and despite that, it has retained enough juice inside avoiding it to be a completely dried up blob of meat.
During my visit, it was noticeably packed and it didn’t surprise me as this kind of a deal is an absolute must-visit. Perfect for friends and families, the entire Choice was filled in no time. This brings me to my minor concern, as more people come in, the time it takes for your meat to be grilled becomes longer. So long that you have to be on queue for a good 10-15 minutes just so you can hand your meats to the chef. While it is not too long of waiting time, it might bring such break on your momentum especially if you want one steak at a time. TIP: Take a couple of slices with you and have them grilled all at once to save time.
Despite such busy crowd, it would be a mortal sin not to vouch for this offer as one of the value-for-money deals in Doha as of date. Factor in the sweet complimentary overnight weekend staycation, you get your money’s absolute worth. Details of the staycation offer are mentioned below.
So whether you are a bonafide meat addict or just in the mood for a slice or two, be sure to check Choices. There’s no room for regret here, just beads of meat sweat.
QAR 235 per person (food only)
QAR 325 per person (including unlimited selected beverages)
