Málaga's 3-Star Michelin chef, Dani García, has officially opened his newest Lobito de Mar venue outside of Spain, a statement said on Sunday. Lobito's grand opening official sponsors were Millennium travel and Moyses Stevens flower shop. Moyses Stevens, a new addition to Alfardan group, beautifully decorated the space for the grand opening.
There are now two restaurants bearing the chef's Mediterranean hallmark in the Qatari capital, the other being BiBo Doha, located in luxury hotel The St Regis, in the Al Gassar resort. Both venues are the result of the international expansion of the Dani García, which have consolidated its culinary influence in Qatar.
Located in the luxury gardens of the Marsa Malaz Kempinski island, The Pearl, Lobito de Mar promises the finest Mediterranean cuisine in Doha, the statement explained.
Lobito de Mar opened in Marbella in 2017, and in Madrid in 2019. The restaurant takes its inspiration from the most popular and representative dishes and products from traditional cooking in the south of Spain, where the quality of the produce is always the star of the show. As its name suggests, this is a restaurant devoted to the sea, serving traditional dishes based on seafood, fish and rice dishes, as well as other more sophisticated dishes, such as seafood-based charcuterie, and always using produce from the finest markets in Andalusia.
The main menu features a range of seafood and plant-based starters, from a king prawn cocktail to the traditional Spanish potato omelette, Galician-style octopus and squid croquette. These are followed by main dishes that include a section dedicated to red tuna, with dishes from all the different cuts. These include carpaccio of tuna porterhouse, the duo tartare, with lean red and ventresca belly, tuna nape and tuna croquette.
There is also a range of other fish available, such as salt-roasted or grilled sea bass, fried or grilled grouper and turbot, with their respective sides and garnishes. As an ambassador for Spanish cuisine and always loyal to his roots, Dani García brings to Lobito de Mar Doha a broad selection of dry rice and noodle dishes such as black octopus paella, and rice dishes with a more liquid consistency such as creamy rice with lobster.
The restaurant's sweet menu includes desserts such as the classic cheesecake, chocolate cake or orange mousse with pistachio and mint.
The venue also provides two alternative menus. Tardeo Sunset is a lighter food menu with a range of options to enjoy the Spanish tradition of sampling various dishes, such as Russian salad, tuna croquettes or a simple potato salad. There is also a shisha menu.
