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!
Turkish tea, anyone?
Refreshing watermelon nectar
Unknown drink in adorable milk bottles
Meringue with berries
The fruit, salad and sushi bar
Date and nut truffles
A mouth-watering assortment of sweets
Enjoying their meal
A little surprise on every table
Chefs preparing the buffet
The Indian Bazar
Dates aplenty – take your pick
Up-close and personal with spinach and pine nut samosas
