The 5 Iftars You Have to Try Before Ramadan Ends
Iftar is defined as the “evening meal in which muslims break their Ramadan fast at sunset”. With Eid al Fitr coming up before the end of this week, we thought we’d put together our five favourite Iftars in Dubai for you to enjoy, before the end of the festivities!


If you’ve got kids, what better place to enjoy a delicious Iftar meal than at one of the coolest parks in Dubai, Legoland. Here you’ll find a wide range of food from fresh juices and dates (the traditional food to break the fast) and a buffet consisting of soups, salad, Arabic food. There’s also a section of the buffet that’s specially been made for the little kids where they’ll find all their comfort foods like spaghetti, sausage rolls, pizza and various sweets.
