Being charitable, generous and giving are just some of the kind virtues we are encouraged to act upon during the holy month of Ramadan. If you are looking for an easy way to give back to the community, you might want to consider being a part of the #AKiloOfKindness campaign by Mövenpick Hotel Jumeirah Lakes Towers. The hotel has teamed up with Beit Al Kheir, a special local charity that will benefit from the donation. All you have to do is donate a kilogram of non-perishable food items, and these will be distributed among the less-fortunate.
If you’ve ever had the pleasure of dining at Tresind, chances are that this maestro of molecular gastronomy will be the first to come in mind when asked to name your absolute favorite fine-dining Indian restaurant in Dubai. I recently raved about their brand new Summer 2016 menu (read all about it by clicking here), and was back last week to try out their lineup for Ramadan.
For Ramadan 2016, Tresind Dubai minimizes on the molecular gastronomic drama they are known for, and takes a more traditional route. Having said that, each and every dish is still given a signature Tresind twist and we were in for some very interesting, enticing treats.
Leopold’s of London: Named after a fabled wanderer who sourced spices and teas from around the globe and later opened shop in London, this gourmet cafe-style eatery located on The Beach JBR boasts of stunning views of the Dubai shoreline.
What better way to break fast than witnessing the mellowing sunset on this scenic shoreline canvas, with the silhouetto of The Palm Jumeirah in the backdrop? We had the pleasure of breaking our very first fast this Ramadan at Leopold’s of London, and had the very memorable experience indeed.
I was invited to the Iftar preview at Jumeirah Beach Hotel last week. The Al Safinah Ballroom gets an Arabesque makeover for the holy month, and by far this ‘majlis’ has to be one of the most photogenic venues I have seen so far this Ramadan.
