InterContinental Doha The City has opened its newest dining destination, Hwang. The restaurant serves a diverse menu of Asian cuisine from Thailand, Korea, Japan, China, Philippines, Singapore, Indonesia and Malaysia. Hwang’s signature menu item is shabu-shabu — blending fresh ingredients with a variety of Asian and Middle Eastern flavours.
Hwang’s shabu-shabu is served family-style. Shabu-shabu, which is often referred to as the Asian version of fondue, is presented at Hwang with a variety of broths and dipping sauces, as well as meats, seafood, vegetables, rice and noodles. Diners are guided through the experience with the expert advice of the chef as they prepare their meals at their table.
Hwang starters include items such as an assorted satay platter, Thai-style shrimp salad and traditional spicy Korean jjamppong soup. The Hwang a la carte menu features sushi and sashimi platters, as well as chili crab Singapore-style, gaeng phed yang (red curry with roast duck), nasigoreng and Osaka-style kake udon.
Hwang’s decor follows the Pan Asian theme with a bright yet warm colour scheme integrated with earthy tones in a casual atmosphere. Chinese fences separate private dining areas, seemingly transporting the diner to an authentic Asian setting.
Hwang features an array of signature cocktails and mocktails, as well as traditional Asian drinks. Diners will also enjoy uniquely blended teas to complement the cuisine from Hwang's exclusive and Doha’s first tea sommelier.
Located on the first floor of the hotel, Hwang is open for dinner from 18:00 to 23:00 Sunday through Friday. For enquiries, call 4015 8888.
