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!
Berries and cream
Sesame seed crackers
Dates aplenty – take your pick
Refreshing watermelon nectar
An authentic Arabic Iftaar experience
The fruit, salad and sushi bar
Turkish tea, anyone?
Chefs preparing the buffet
A little surprise on every table
Meringue with berries
Banana chocolate cake
A selection of picked middle-eastern delicacies
(non-alcoholic) Drinks, anyone?
Up-close and personal with spinach and pine nut samosas
