Iftar - Khalidiya Palace Rayhaan Rotana, Abu Dhabi
|Some nice views|
|Dates of course.|
|TV screens for entertainment.|
|Various seating options.|
There are servers a-plenty, and in the time that we would be there, would have the pleasure of being waited upon by some very warm waiters.
Juice is a big part of an iftar, and I made my way to their drinks area to see what was on offer. As expected, it was a nice selection: Qamar edin, karkade, jeleb and thamar hindi. Of course, to break your fast, they also had labaan. I enjoyed the thamar hindi and karkade, the former for its sweetness and the latter for its tangy taste.
|Tasty baba ganouj|
Of course, the dessert. Haagen Dasz ice cream for the kids as well as some Middle Eastern favourites are part of a lovely dessert section. My favourites were the halawal bil jeben and of course the um ali. The um ali, especially, was good - not overly sweet.

|The carrot cake was the best surprise|
