If Ramadan is all about sharing, breaking the fast is all about delicious food. Whilst we’re all used to our mums being stuck in the kitchen for hours on end, preparing a three (or in some cases six) course meal – no-one really considers leaving the house and giving mum a break. In Dubai, there are plenty of fantastic restaurants with excellent menus for iftar that won’t disappoint.
MILLE selected five of the coolest restaurants for breaking the fast that are worth leaving the house for.
Every year during Ramadan, Dubai Opera becomes the perfect iftar experience. This year, chef Sean Connely will be curating the menu. You’ll get to enjoy live Arabic music in an opulent setting.
