This holy month in 2023, Dubai and Abu Dhabi will serve International iftars.

With a lot of foreign restaurants participating in Ramadan celebrations this year, the demographic diversity of the United Arab Emirates has helped make a broad range of cuisines popular and readily accessible in the Emirates.

Zoe Modern Greek Kouzina, Abu Dhabi

This lovely restaurant behind The Abu Dhabi Edition hotel serves soup (daily selections) followed by Greek salad with crumbled, barrel-aged feta or charred corn and tomato salad with lemon and paprika dressing to break the fast. In addition, feta sambousek and tomato keftedes will be provided as appetisers.

The entrees consist of slow-cooked beef, crispy-skinned chicken seasoned with marbled potatoes, and chicken rigatoni. Choose the classic grilled souvlaki with chicken, lamb, and beef on skewers, accompanied with rice, tzatziki sauce, piccalilli, and pita.
