When the winter season comes to Qatar, there’s nothing more comforting than eating a bowl of hot soup to keep you warm. Lomi is one of the traditional comfort foods for Filipinos. In addition, there are numerous lomi options in the city.
There’s no reason to skip the hearty lomi soup. Just head on over to Loming Barako in Muntazah, where you can find one of the best lomi in Qatar.
Food for Barakos
Do you miss the flavor of lomi? This dish is made up of fresh egg noodles and a rich broth. While there are many variations of lomi throughout the Philippines, the version from Batangas is the most well-known. It’s the one with a boiled egg and kikiam or meatballs on top.
You can now satisfy your lomi cravings when you visit Loming Barako. You can get a large bowl of steaming hot lomi with heaping toppings. One bowl is big enough to feed a group of two to three. Or, you can also order the solo bowl for yourself.
Aside from lomi, the restaurant has a diverse menu. If you want more soup, you can also order the Gotong Batangas or mami. These are available as solo or salo (for sharing).
If you want to start with some appetizers, you can choose from steamed or fried siomai, chicken spring rolls, calamares, tempura, or tokwa’t baka. These appetizers are perfect on their own, but they are also the perfect companion to the lomi.
Another light meal option is their pizzang barako, which comes in three flavors: regular, espesyal, and creamy garlic.
Loming Barako also serves pancit and chamee. Miki, bihon, and canton are the pancit variants available. Or you can also have the mixed pancit, and try several flavors in one order. Chamee also comes with any of these toppings: chicken fillet, lechon, fried siomai, seafood, or spring roll.
