Pasta Tasting @ Il Teatro – Four Seasons Doha

Lastweek I opened my mailbox to find an invite to Pasta Tasting at Il Teatro. Having just finished a hefty lunch I was terrified reading an all pasta tasting dinner invite.I took a deep breath and decided to brave myself to RSVP to the invite accepting the challenge. After all a few extra pounds hurt no one 😛

Opting for a small lunch the day of the tasting I was left intrigued to know what was in store for us that evening at Il Teatro. To our relief as soon as we got seated it was made clear that the pasta journey we were about to begin was one that promised to be small, light and effortlessly beautiful 🙂

C O U R S E 5 – Maccheroni Ai Frutti Di Mare

Fresh seafood, lobster bisque

 

Final Verdict: We all agreed that course 1 – Cacio e pepe needed more sauce as the original dish would be served in Italy. A little more sauce just enough to dip your bread and indulge in a few more carbs. The best dish for me personally was the course 3. Although I am not a big fan of truffle this one blew me away. Buttery pasta with a hint of truffle and cooked to absolute perfection. We were later told by Chef Marco that every single pasta  was made in house. The other good part that got me sold was that every singe course was rightfully dished out Al dente, just I like it.

 

This well paced 5 course pasta tasting menu is guaranteed to take you to pasta heaven. My only hitch is the price of 190 QR. I do feel it could be priced a bit lower to make it a more viable option for lunch as well.
