Ramadaan Specials: Turkish Delights, Doughnuts, Persian Dates and More

These menus are perfect for iftar

Last updated: 14 May 2019

During Ramadaan, Muslims abstain from all food, drink, and vices like smoking, from dawn till dusk. Suhoor is the pre-dawn meal, and iftar is the meal served at sunset, which breaks the fast. Many Muslims will break their fast at home but for those looking for alternative options, these might certainly interest you.

PERSIAN DATES, MASALA, BOMBAY CRUSH
You must book in advance at Sundoo, the tapas bar that serves Durban and south Indian cuisine. On their decadent menu (serving 2–4) are mint and cucumber water, Persian dates, samoosas, chili chicken pies, spinach chili bites, breyani arancini with mushroom and baby marrow, masala chicken with roti and carrot salad; and Bombay crush or vermicelli with ice-cream. Iftar will be served from 6pm at Sundoo.
Price: R160pp
Good to know: Space is limited, so if you can’t get in, there's a Sundoo is at the V&A Food Market (R100 per plate for a selection).
