Looking for a wholesome Iftar spread with the family, with a hit of good old Peri Peri? South African chain Galito’s has put together a Iftar Platter this Ramadan, and we went for a tasting at the Dubai Festival City branch.
You have a choice of two platters here; the chicken platter (priced at AED 109) and the mixed platter (priced at AED 179).
The Chicken Iftar platter features succulent boneless chicken breasts, chicken satay with peri-nut and yogurt mayo dips, chicken espetada with onions and green peppers; traditionally marinated, flame grilled to perfection and accompanied by Peri-Hummus, pita breads, and a choice of 2 sides.
We indulged in the Mixed Platter. This features three delicacies; the Peri-Peri chicken, grilled prawns and the lamb espetada with onions and peppers. The mixed platter is also served with peri-hummus, pita breads and choice of 2 sides.
Keeping in mind the needs of the thirsty faster, both platters are accompanied with bottomless glasses of soft drinks and a decadently rich sticky date pudding to end the Iftar experience on a sweet note.
One platter is easily sufficient for two! And if you are still hungry, I would suggest you try out Galito’s brand new twist on a Mexican classic; the Peri Chicken Tacos! I am absolutely in love with the idea of adding tangy hot Peri Peri to Mexican.
The Ramadan platters are available at all 8 of the Galito’s restaurants at Al Wahda Mall, Yas Mall, Marina Mall & Dalma Mall in Abu Dhabi, Bay Square, Dubai Festival City Mall, Riverland Dubai Parks in Dubai and Al Naeem Mall in RAK.
If you have the kids in tow, you might consider visiting the Dubai Festival City branch… Galito’s is listed as one of the mall’s restaurants that are offering free Iftar for kids!
