Mid-day Fix: Zengo Omakase and Business Lunch

I’ve been meaning to go and explore business lunches for so long but my work schedule won’t let me. As much as these lunch offers are so tempting and reasonably priced, I don’t have the luxury to go to West Bay area for an express lunch and be back on time. Back in May, I came across Flying Food Ninja‘s entry on Zengo Business Lunch and all the more that I wanted to sneak out of the office and go. Over Eid Al Adha, I thought that perhaps it is a high time to cross one out off my list. Agenda for the Day: Zengo Omakase and Business Lunch.

(Origami) Paper Cranes are everywhere.

Quite popular with its scenic view of Doha’s skyline and spacious yet minimalist interior, Zengo has been recently named as BEST NEWCOMER RESTAURANT from Time Out Doha Restaurant Awards 2017. This is Richard Sandoval’s fourth restaurant in Doha and offers an innovative take on authentic Pan-Asian cuisine. The diverse menu ranges from sushi, sashimi and hand-crafted dim sum to curry dishes, wok dishes, and even grilled items. Hand-muddled mocktails and tea are also available to complete that unique Asian dining experience.

Whether you choose to go for the Express Lunch or share the Omakase Set, you can never go wrong. Both offers showcase Zengo’s best sellers and popular items while keeping that top notch attention to details. Portions are decent and will surely fill you up while your taste buds will go wild as all the savory-salty-sweet-sour dishes perfectly compliments each other. It is hard to pick a single item that I would recommend (like I usually do) as each is an absolute must-try. If you haven’t, Zengo is one of those places in Doha that you should really visit and experience. It is not just the food but the Zengo Omakase and Business Lunch experience that is highly recommendable.

And though it is called Express Lunch, be sure to allow a hefty amount of time because it is irresistible to take snaps of what you’re eating. It is that good!
