Bento Box at Hwang, Intercontinental Doha The City

My latest lunch quest is the bento box at Hwang in Intercontinental Doha The City, the one near City Center as per my UBER driver. I have been to Hwang many times before including that time when the Greek mother-in-law was here in Doha for a visit. She didn’t like the ramen served here which I thought was delicious, she said soup is only to be served when someone’s sick. Don’t listen to her, she has no idea what she’s talking about.

It’s been a very long time since my last visit in Hwang. Since I was headed to Intercontinental Doha The City anyway for a meeting earlier this afternoon, I figured I should try the bento box at Hwang as well which is a really great lunch deal if you ask me. They have three bento box menu options for you to choose from each with its corresponding prices. It took me quite a while to decide what to order because everything sounds delightful. Finally, after much consideration – I chose option B with a starter from the option A menu.

20 minutes after placing my order, the bento box came. As my appetizer I had the seaweed salad which wasn’t really a good start for me. I think it didn’t have enough sesame flavor which my taste buds were waiting for. It’s a shame because I love seaweed salad and I always order this dish whenever it’s available.

I had duck with Thai red curry and vegetable fried rice as main course and while the duck meat was perfectly cooked, I’d prefer a little bit more coconut milk flavor in the curry. Don’t get me wrong, it was a good dish as it is, it’s just that my taste palate would like it more if the coconut milk taste was a bit stronger which may or may not work for other people. On the other hand, the rice was perfect. I know it’s just rice but a good fried rice would make you want to ask for more servings of it and I had to fight the urge to ask for an extra rice earlier at Hwang.

The bento box also comes with 3 pcs of sushi, a nice surprise but I was already a bit full with my two main courses so I wasn’t able to finish it. For dessert, I had honey melon and sago dessert as I was craving for some sago. I haven’t had sago for a very long time and the small serving of this dessert somehow satisfied that craving.

I love the size of each dishes in this bento box. Enough to end one’s hunger but also not too heavy to make you feel guilty of binge-eating. I’m definitely going back to try out some other dishes in their bento box menu. I may not have raved much about most of the dishes served but it did trigger my Asian taste buds and made me crave for more. I already know what I’ll have next, Indonesian beef rendang as my main course. 🙂

    Very cool. I really want to buy those bento boxes. I love Korean food – mainly because of all the little items that accompany the main dish; they would all fit perfectly in a bento box.

    I like the idea of bento box of different cuisines and not just Japanese.
