Lovelier The Second Time Around, Business Lunch at Antica Pesa Doha

It’s very rare for me to go back to the same restaurant within such a short span of time but I guess one can’t resist the beauty of Antica Pesa Doha. After a business lunch 2 weeks ago, I went back with another friend who got curious of the restaurant after hearing me rave about its breathtaking view. I think Antica Pesa Doha will be the restaurant I’d bring friends coming over to Doha to wow them. I guess only the blind will not appreciate it.

Just like the first visit, we had calamari but this time we paired it with insalata Meditteranea. Unlike the first visit, the calamari was now no longer very salty – I can now eat it on its own without having to wash each bite with water. The Mediterranean salad had a good, refreshing kick with its yogurt dressing.

For our main course, my friend K followed my recommendation and had spaghettoni cacio e pepe while I was in the mood for some meat so I ordered polletospeziato con baby veg which was absolutely amazing! The chicken skin was so crispy and tasty while the meat was tender and juicy. The vegetables were all fresh and cooked perfectly. I think I found my favorite dish in Antica Pesa Doha.

It was definitely a much better lunch compared to my first visit when most of the dishes were too salty for my taste. This time, all the dishes were cooked and flavored to perfection. Lovelier the second time around indeed.
