Dubai, UAE, 11 May 2015 – The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC will present guests with a variety of unique experiences this Ramadan, fusing traditional cuisine with culinary innovation, in a choice of contemporary Arabian settings.
Iftar in the Ramadan Majlis
The luxury Dubai hotel’s ballroom will be transformed into a lavish Ramadan Majlis, where a sumptuous Iftar buffet will be served. Contemporary décor, an array of private majlis and a musical duo playing soothing Ramadan music will ensure a relaxed yet lively ambience.
The star of the show is set to be a variety of Savory ‘Booza’, the Arabic word for ice cream, served as unique condiments to the Falafel Waffle, which proved to be a hit at last year’s Iftar. The Savory Booza is offered in four popular Ramadan flavors; tahini, beetroot mutable, sweet potato mutable and hummus. The hotel’s now famous Arabian Sushi station will also return by popular demand, with handmade maki rolls including flavors such as lamb shawarma, hammour, and shish kebab rolls.
A wide selection of traditional Ramadan dishes will also form part of the lavish buffet, including hot and cold mezzeh, and approximately 15 live stations where The Ritz-Carlton, DIFC’s chefs will showcase their creative flair, including ouzi carving, fatat hummus, shawarma and saj stations, along with a wide range of seafood and international dishes to cater to all tastes.
Sohour in The Sunken Garden An à la carte Sohour will be served daily in The Sunken Garden, offering a range of Middle Eastern cuisine, along with a menu of over 30 flavors of shisha, table seating or private majlis, and live musical entertainment. Surrounded by a serene landscape of palm trees and a dramatic water fountain, the magical garden remains cool throughout the summer due to its low-level positioning and air conditioning, providing a unique al fresco setting for guests this Ramadan.
Chocolate with Ramadan Flavors
Three delicious new chocolate milk drinks with Ramadan flavors including Dulce Date, Marrakesh Mint and Apricot Saffron, will be served hot or refreshingly cold at Sohour, and in Cake, the downtown Dubai hotel’s patisserie and café, throughout the day for those who are not fasting. True to its name, Cake will also offer a range of unique Ramadan cakes, pastries and desserts, including Baklava Tart, Date Delight and Date Walnut Cake throughout Ramadan, as well a mini chocolate fountain for two, flavored with orange, rose or saffron.
