Ramadan 2021-Iftars to try in Dubai

Iftar to try in Dubai

Ramadan Kareem to everyone. This year the holy month of Ramadan started on 13th April. Ramadan is a month of spiritual reflection, devotion, prayers and self-improvement. It is also a month of fasting.

The fast begins at dawn and ends at sunset. Iftar is the meal with which the Muslims break their daily fast during Ramadan. Traditionally the fast is broken with dates and water before prayers, followed by Iftar.

Homemade Iftar is the best but hotels and restaurants in Dubai offer many Iftar options to every kind of budget. Iftar buffet is still the popular option but set-menu is also has many takers.

Due to the pandemic Ramadan tents are not allowed. But you can visit most of the hotels and restaurants for Iftar and Suhoor. Here’s a roundup of some of the Iftars that I tried this year:
