What’s a better way to spend Ramadan than in the city of diversity, excess and good food, Dubai. Being a hotspot destination for people all around the world, Dubai currently holds tasty dishes from all around the world. We’re going to focus on my personal favorites when it comes to iftar and suhour.
Starting the list very strong with one luxurious restaurant at Jumeirah, ‘Al Majles’. Serving sohour from 9:30PM to 3:00AM, with famous traditional sohour plates from all over the MENA region and worldwide dishes too. From sohour classics like foul, falafel, and manaqish to more modern renditions of middle eastern dishes like chicken and kale Salad. Mainly they are famous for the ambiance and various Shisha flavors for after sohour chill time.
Tip: Make your booking early because it gets fully booked quickly.
