For someone who’s fasting during Ramadan, Iftaar is a special moment, and what makes it more special is the company of some new-found friends over a spectacular culinary experience. I was graciously invited to a bloggers’ Iftaar at Liwan, one of several restaurants at Al Ghurair Rayhaan by Rotana, and I almost didn’t go before actually deciding to; turns out, it was a good decision.
Even though this is a photo-blog, not a restaurant review, I will not hesitate to mention that the tantalizing dessert selection is by far the best around.
Let the feast for the eyes begin!
Date and nut truffles
Meringue with berries
Dates aplenty – take your pick
Refreshing watermelon nectar
A mouth-watering assortment of sweets
The beautiful Turkish tea stall
A selection of picked middle-eastern delicacies
The fruit, salad and sushi bar
Chefs preparing the buffet
Turkish tea, anyone?
Banana chocolate cake
An authentic Arabic Iftaar experience
Up-close and personal with spinach and pine nut samosas
