Signature Dish

This is a Braised Short Rib on the bone, served with lettuce cups, rice, and steamed Bao buns. The dish comes with different add-ons like kimchi, chili garlic, scallions, and pickles. The way of displaying it is through serving the short rib on the bone – made from a one kg piece and braised for 12 hours in a nice soy-based marinade, which makes it soft and tender. "We wanted our dish to offer many ways of enjoying it, whether with side dishes, or just with rice, or even with Chinese steamed buns, and with a level of spiciness that can be adjusted to fit all tastes. It is an interactive and playful dish to eat during a gathering with family or friends".



With an ambiance that replicates the golden Qatari sunset, CUT offers a refined selection of beef and produce, along with locally-sourced ingredients. A popular Friday brunch spot, CUT serves mouthwatering New York striploin, smoked local trevally, and gooey mac and cheese. Kaiserschmaren, a light and sweet pancake with berry compote and a selection of sorbets, is recommended for the perfect end to CUT's contemporary culinary journey.
