Ramadan in Ras Al Khaima

As Ramadan arrives, Ras Al Khaimah turns into a culinary delight every evening when the sun sets. The breaking of the day’s fast, known as Iftar, is a moment of delicious variety and shared happiness.

A range of places offer authentic Middle Eastern buffets, while some opt for modern set menus.

The fast traditionally ends with dates and a simple beverage of water, juice, or Arabic coffee, followed by prayers. The meal of Iftar begins, often with soup, followed by dishes like rice, salads, grilled meats, and beyond.
