Hunters’ duck magret à la plancha is an idyllic indoor garden dish

Try the duck at Hunters' in Doha

You don’t need to completely abandon hope of dining al fresco just because you’re living in Qatar. The indoor garden at Hunters’ Room & Grill is lush, green and airy with tree-trunk tables, trickling fountains and a glass ceiling several floors above. With meandering pathways around its edges, and the odd hotel guest strolling by, the venue is more like a garden than you would expect from an indoor space in a hotel situated right in the middle of bustling Freej Bin Mahmoud.

The new additions to Hunters’ menu are as summery as the venue, like this beautiful, bright duck salad. It’s a medley of caramelised shallots, sautéed beetroot cubes, toasted pumpkin seeds, fresh watermelon, thinly sliced radish and micro herb garnishes.

The duck is cooked to preference with a golden, pan-seared skin before being placed on top of thyme-infused, grilled polenta.

It’s subtly seasoned, simply, with salt and pepper, so the natural, fresh flavours of the vegetables really shine. Prettily plated and light – the absolute antithesis of the heavily-sauced duck dishes that dominate most menus – this is truly a dish for the summer.
