Ramadan in Dubai 2016: 7 Iftars To Try

No comments:
Woah! I can't believe we are already halfway through Ramadan. I know, it just goes so fast right and yet here I am, posting a blog about Iftar previews I tried before Ramadan. Life sometimes gets in the way and I cannot help it but I won't let this season finish without having to share with you all the wonderful Iftars I've tried.

All of the Iftar previews I went to at the beginning of Ramadan serves buffet except for one. I am blessed to received many invitations and I am truly grateful.

If you are going to any Iftar buffet, I encourage you to take just enough of what can be consumed by the body instead of the eyes. There have been reports I've read in the newspaper of how much food is wasted during Ramadan which deviates from its true sense. I do hope that something can be done to address this issue.

Ramadan is the time of giving, togetherness, and reflection. It is a month of fasting from sunrise to sunset where our Muslim brothers abstain from food, drinking, smoking and sex. This is done primarily to cleanse one's body and spirit of all the earthly pleasures.

It also means families and friends gathering at the dinner table at sundown every day either at home, in a restaurant or F&B outlets at hotels around town. There are so many places in Dubai to dine and we are spoiled with options.

Here are some of the Iftars we've tried and what we say about it.

No, it's not every day, it was just a few invitations but thought I'd share it with you in case you are looking for other places to break your fast with your family or friends.

A few suggestions wouldn't hurt so here's a round-up of the Iftars I've tried and enjoyed during the season.

Medley Restaurant's Special Moroccan Iftar

No comments:
Ramadan is expected to begin on the 18th of June about 20 days from now.

Our Muslim brothers are already preparing themselves spiritually, mentally and physically for this annual momentous occasion.

Physical preparation is crucial especially that this Ramadan has the longest fasting hours because it is during summer when the day is longer. They say, the first week is the hardest while the body is still adjusting to the change and eventually it get used to it.

At sundown, everyone breaks their fast, go to prayer and enjoy a good iftar meal with family and friends.

Me and my gorgeous girl friend-Jeah, were treated by Chef Mama to a special Moroccan pre-Ramadan iftar last week.

If you are looking for a place for your nightly Iftar, a wide variety of pan-arab dishes with Moroccan twist will be served at Medley Restaurant - Pullman Hotel DCC this Ramadan. They have an extensive menu of sumptuous food from appetizers to main dishes to desserts.

Discount Alert!!! Book before the 5th of June and pay only AED 115/person instead of AED 155. Children 6-12 pay AED 70 and 6 years below are complimentary

Don't forget to check out their Ouzi station. There's the very tender lamb ouzi, flaky hammour and prawn and vegetarian cous cous.

The lavish spread of cold and hot mezze and appetizers was a view to admire, so deliciously tempting

There were also jars of different types of nuts and dried fruits, pile of dates and bountiful table of fresh fruits

I had three types of cheeses, dolma (stuffed eggplant), sarma (stuffed vine leaves) and tabouleh for my starter before moving on to the main dish of lamb ouzi, rice, fish, prawn and moussaka.

Traditional sweets from this gorgeous dessert table was the way to end our dinner

coupled with some hot Moroccan mint tea

The other part of the restaurant had a lovely Ramadan setting where two ladies are doing a free henna for the guests

We stretched to give  our hands to the ladies and they started drawing artistic fluid strokes

which resulted in an artsy design

We drank our tea and chat while waiting for out henna to dry

Jeah and I indeed enjoyed our night. 

Not only the food was good, the ambiance has an intimate feel which I love. The staff are friendly, polite and efficient.

They also have an outdoor dining area if you would like to dine al fresco.

Make sure to add Medley Restaurant Pullaman Deira City Center to your Ramadan dining list and you'll be sure to have a good treat.
