Sometimes, a salad just won’t cut it. When your mouth is watering and your appetite raging, sometimes the only thing to calm the hunger beast is a sizzling, succulent slab of steak! Qatar is a foodie nation of meat-lovers and we have to admit – we have a pretty impressive selection of spots for carnivores to chow down. Here are some of our top picks to cut into!

JW’s Steakhouse

You’ll love the classic décor and equally nostalgic menu at this gem of a steakhouse tucked away inside the Doha Marriott. With a rich, yet rustic interior, it’s an ideal spot for a night out over good food, with great friends. Classic is the name of the game with the cuisine at JW’s – done well, and without fault. Try the filet mignon with JW’s signature steak butter and a side of garlic mash and tell us you haven’t tried anything better! Other dishes that get top nod are their oysters Rockefeller, iconic crab Louis, and a sky-high slice of JW’s New York Cheesecake! To die for!

Hunters Room & Grill

One of the city’s newest entrants in the running for city steakhouses is The Westin Doha’s Hunters Room & Grill where you’ll find sizzling slabs and chops aplenty in a woodsy atmosphere that lives up to its name! (There’s a giant deer carving outside the restaurant!) Sit back and enjoy a glass while watching the flames in action from their open show kitchen as your cuts are grilled to perfection. Their recent Burger Hunt promotion was also so popular they’ve made it a menu staple daily from 5:00 p.m. – 8:00 p.m. (Try ‘The Huntsman!). But if you’re a stickler for tradition then you can’t go wrong with their Black Angus Tomahawk – not for the faint of heart, this is for the truly fearless appetites among you. Top it off with a side of perfectly crisped fries, sautéed button mushrooms and Hunters Homemade Sauce and then check your blood pressure!

The Butcher Shop & Grill

This South African export located in Villaggio Mall constantly seems to fly under the radar – or else our Doha foodies are keeping it close-knit secret! But you’ll find a deliciously diverse selection of fare on offer at this warm and homely restaurant – beef tongue anyone?! Grab one of their cozy booths inside and you’d never know you’re smack-dab in the middle of the mall. In addition to an array of steaks grilled to your liking, their extensive menu also has some pretty solid poultry and burger offerings and they even do an array of Spanish-style espetadas! We’d go back for the rump top sirloin version, and their grilled seafood platter because, well, what’s better than a good surf ‘n turf?! The answer? Nothing!

This award-winning restaurant at the InterContinental Doha The City is a haven for steak connoisseurs – where else do you get to select your knife based on your choice of cut! Intimate and elegant, it’s one of those restaurant’s where the meal is the occasion. Splash out and sample one of their lush tasting menus, replete with amuse bouche, foie gras, and a degustation platter featuring the Chef’s choicest cuts. Their selection of Australian grass-fed cuts is exquisite, as are the milk-fed veal chops from Holland. Accompaniments include the luscious likes of bone marrow, pan-seared foie gras, and the only truffle and Parmesan fries you’ll ever need. Hungry yet?

New York Steakhouse

This American classic at the Marriott Marquis City Center Doha has been making waves among Qatar’s foodie faithful over the last few months, ever since the launch of its Big Apple Brunch. Showcasing the best from its a la carte menu, along with a few new bespoke brunch creations, it’s a perfect initiation by taste to all this gem of restaurant has to offer! From table-side carvery stations, to a large and luscious cold seafood platter that can easily feed four, the items are endless. But for the meat-lovers among you, a must-try are the trio of tenderloin featuring Australian Rangers Valley Black Onyx ‘Black Angus’ exclusive to New York Steakhouse, a melt-in-your-mouth French Charolais, and the U.S. Omaha ‘Natural’. End it with a helping of their signature New York Steakhouse classic chocolate soufflé to hit the sweet spot and keep the meat sweats at bay.

Texas Roadhouse

The new kid in town, this tasty transplant from the Lone-Star State is now grilling at the Mall of Qatar and Doha Festival City. Maybe an afternoon of shopping has worked up your appetite, or you’re grabbing a bit to eat ahead of a night at the cinema – Texas Roadhouse ticks the boxes for quality and for being budget-friendly. Sample one of their aged, hand-cut steaks (you’ll die for the Ft. Worth rib-eye!), dig in to their finger-licking Texas BBQ offerings, and even sample some battered catfish – Texas Creole-style! They also serve up a moreish selection of traditional country dinners when you fancy some Southern comfort. Delish!
