Iftar with an x-factor - Beach Rotana, Abu Dhabi
|Loved this dates display.|
|Comfortable, manageable and spacious.|
|A very lively iftar|
|One of THE highpoints of the evening.|
|Kebbeh and sambusek.|
The service, meanwhile, continues to impress. Service that checks all the boxes. Even my cutlery is replaced after being cleared away.
|Desserts stood out.|
|The kunafeh was warm, giving the pleasure of seeing stretchy melted cheese.|
Thus ended another iftar, but I enjoyed this for reasons other than the very good food. It was an iftar that tried to engage its guests. It eschewed the usual routine of come in-sit down-eat-go home. I mentioned the word 'interactive' earlier. So true. The oud player certainly set the tone for a beautiful evening where the solemnity of Ramadan was retained, while friends and families were treated to some relaxing sounds off the oud and could experience one the meanings of an iftar - breaking fast with people dear to you.
