The One Restaurant - Gourmet Festive ShowSaturday, December 27, 2014
It was Christmas day, and another one of those days when we just walk around a mall and come dinner time, we try to find somewhere to eat. As we were going about, we stumbled upon The One Restaurant.
The One is originally a furniture gallery which sell retail home furnishings but eventually ventured into food. Some of their branches through-out the Middle East have cafes or restaurants inside.
The ambiance is quite relaxing with the peaceful surroundings and dark interior colors. I love the industrial look of the ceiling. The mixed-and-matched furniture also gives a beautifully eclectic impression to the place. You might also notice some price tags on those furnishings in the dining area, that's because they use the same furniture they have in their gallery.
For this holiday season, they are offering a festive set menu with choices for a 2-course (QR85) and 3-course (QR99) meal.
We went with the 3-course feast, it was Christmas after all. The meal came with Mulled Punch and a cup of coffee of your choice.
ACT 1: SEASONAL STARTERS
|ROASTED BUTTERNUT & CARROT SOUP|
Topped with a dollop of spiced cream

Layered with avocado and served with wasabi mayo, lumpfish caviar and sumac strawberries
ACT 2: MAGICAL MAINS
|THE ONE TURKEY AND TRIMMINGS|

roast potatoes, honey-roasted parsnips,

Cross-cut veal shanks braised with cranberries, mixed spices and jalapeño,

ACT 3: FESTIVE FINALES
|TRADITIONAL FESTIVE PUDDING|
Chocolate coffee custard set with almod cookies and served with caramel sauce and berries
The food was great and very neatly prepared with beautiful plating (with the exemption of the turkey).
The staff was very accommodating and the dining area was very neat. I love the fact that there is huge window between the dining area and the kitchen. You can see that they are very clean and organized in preparing the food, which is an ultimate plus for me. Though, I think they could use a little bit more effort on table settings, they are after all a furniture gallery.
You'll find them on the upper floor of The One Gallery in Landmark Mall, Al Duhail, Doha.
