A festive feast to break your fast

The Holy month of Ramadan is marked by introspective spirituality, dawn to dusk fasting and generosity. It is also the perfect time for unwinding with friends and families around Iftars - a typically sumptuous feast which starts at sunset to break the day of fasting. We list some of the iftars not to be missed this year in Dubai.

Cuisine meets culture

Immerse yourself in the spirit of Ramadan at a traditional Iftar at the Sheikh Mohammed Centre for Cultural Understanding. The Iftar here is as authentic as they come, held in the courtyard of the wind-tower house in Al Fahidi Historical Neighbourhood. Your Emirati hosts will talk you through the rituals that begin the breaking of the daily fast, including prayers and traditional foods served. And if you’ve any questions about Ramadan, the culture or local traditions in general, your hosts will be more than happy to answer. After Iftar you’re invited to visit the Diwan Masjid, before returning to SMCUU for dessert and tea.
