Sofitel Dubai The Obelisk has launched a culinary journey as a tribute to Arabian hospitality and culture, while incorporating French savoir-faire for Ramadan.
Tickling taste buds is Chef Daniel Boulud’s French take on an authentic, Arabian Iftar. Honouring tradition, guests can break their fast with dates and a Pistou broth soup with seasonal vegetables followed by an assortment of starters to share, including local burrata with crisp artichokes and pickled zaatar and wild mushroom falafel doused in velvet tahini dressing.
Selections from the grill make way for the char lovers, such as prawns with smoked garlic and grilled lime, herb brushed bavette and seabream with sumac and parsley. Bigger groups and families will appreciate the ouzi-style lamb shank with oriental rice and a daily local catch cooked on the grill with a delicate blend of local spices.
Finish the meal with signature desserts such as saffron-poached pear tartlet served with pistachio cream, or go for a warm date pudding, dripping with salted caramel and accompanied by sweet, local honey ice cream.
Located on the 2nd floor, Iftar at Brasserie Boulud is available from sunset until 8.30pm during the month of Ramadan and is priced at AED 195 per person including Ramadan juices, water, tea and coffee.
Guests can extend their evening for Suhour at Soleil Pool & Lounge and enjoy an a la carte menu and shisha blends. Dine on small bites from the grill, from shawarma-style tacos to a live showcase of traditionally prepared desserts.
Located on the 6th floor, Sohour in Soleil Pool & Lounge will be available à la carte from 8,30pm to midnight during the month of Ramadan. Shishas are priced from AED 70.
