Yes! You read that right! CAMEL BURGER!! Wanna know where you can get one??
I have said previously that my motto in life is to try anything once (unless it will be harmful to myself, then that’s a whole other story) therefore consuming a burger made out of camel meat is no exception.
I learned that Kempinski’s Aroma Restaurant serves this notable specialty and the best part is that it is an included option on their business lunch menu. Of course, I had to check it out and share my experience with you, our loyal readers.
The business lunch at Aroma costs QAR 75/person for 2 courses and QAR 95/person for 3 courses which is similar to most hotels offering business / express lunch. The business lunch is available from 12PM to 4PM everyday except Fridays.
For my 3 course lunch, I placed an order for the Sesame Seared Tuna to start with and obviously the Camel Burger for my main plus since I am a chocolate lover, I had the Geneva Chocolate Mousse to end my meal.
I can honestly say that I thoroughly enjoyed the Camel Burger from the moment I had my first bite which was totally unexpected. I liked the fact that the patty was juicy, soft, didn’t have that “meaty” taste that most beef have and I didn’t find it “gamey” at all either. There was no after taste also and I guess that’s because I requested the meat to be cooked all throughout. Surprisingly, I do not think this will be the last time I will have this burger. As for the other dishes I had, the seared tuna was crispy & crunchy plus flavorful but the chocolate mousse was too sweet for my liking.
In summary, I rate this restaurant a (5 / 5) considering I was well taken care of by the staff, service was fast and precise, surroundings were spotless; furthermore, they satisfied my curiosity regarding camel meat! Definitely, it is worth a try.
