An Iftar with a difference

Before I get started – apologies for the low quality pictures (taken on an iPhone!)

A couple of weeks ago I went down to Al Quoz for an Iftar unlike most of the meals hosted in big hotels across the city.

Making a warehouse home for the evening, we were shown to a low table with floor cushions for an informal meal setting for #Thisisnotabuffet

The pop up concept is a la carte and (hopefully) much less food wastage when compared to a buffet. The food itself is Middle Eastern inspired with a modern, stylish twist – without being so unusual you don’t know what you’re looking at on the plate!

The Iftar runs until 6th July and aims to re-focus people on the real spirit of Ramadan – community, sharing and togetherness.

If you’re looking to go for 6.45pm to break your fast you need to book a table as the Iftar is incredibly popular. Unlike others which usually have a short sitting, this runs until 11pm and most importantly, 5% of all revenue generated goes to charity.

You can choose from a three course menu ranging from 90 – 210 AED and there’s also a selection of tapas dishes from 25-35 AED if you’re not looking for a bigger meal. Here’s the full menu:
