Dine & Stand A Chance To Win Flight Tickets Courtesy of Qatar Airways
DUBAI, United Arab Emirates, July 2010 – Celebrating the melting pots of nationalities and diversity in cultures, Ramadan is the time where we rejoice in all the wonderful cuisines from all over the world. Sheraton Dubai Creek Hotel & Towers will play host to special Iftar cuisines in its Hatta banquet room and guests can expect a wholesome Arabic hospitality each evening as they break fast to a sumptuous feast.
This Ramadan, the culinary team at the 5-star hotel will serve up special traditional Arabic charcoal-grilled meat selections including Shish Taouk, Shawarma, Kofta and mixed-grilled meats in various marinades. Muslim and non-Muslim guests alike are welcome to embrace the traditions and warm up to Arabic hospitality by starting off the meal with a variety of dates, dried figs, apricots and assorted nuts.
Each night, the Iftar spread will take on a different theme, allowing guests to enjoy traditional delicacies from 7 different countries and region. Hence, guests can come every day and there will still be surprises on the table. Start the week on Sunday with Moroccan specialities, whilst Mondays feature Pakistani dishes and Tuesdays are South East Asian nights. As the weekend gets closer, Wednesday serves up authentic Egyptian Ramadan favourites whilst Thursdays offer a delicious spread of Arabic specialities from the Gulf region. On Fridays, be tempted with Iranian cuisine and Saturdays bring about the Turkish delights.
To complete the feast, guests must not miss out on the traditional Arabic sweets and Ramadan beverages such as Katayef, Kunaffa, Umm Ali and much more. For variety, the buffet also offers non-traditional sweets namely Cream Caramel, cheese cakes and fresh fruit pies amongst others. Each Iftar is priced at AED135 net per person.
Not only can guests take advantage of the different menus, those who dine 3 times at the Iftar buffet will enjoy the next Iftar meal for free!
It is customary to break fast with family members and Sheraton Dubai Creek is offering a Family Package whereby for a special price of AED320, a family of 2 adults and 2 children under 14 years old can enjoy an Iftar meal together.
Special Indian Set Menus
In addition to the 7 themed Iftar buffets, guests can also break fast at the Ashiana Indian restaurant. Chef Anuj Sood has prepared 3 special set menus which include Indian favourites such as Gosht Sarai Ki Biryani (Baby lamb and saffron rice cooked with brown onions), Macchi Ka Salan (Cubes of fish cooked in peanut, sesame seeds and cashew nut gravy) and Paneer Butter Masala (Cottage cheese cubes simmered in tomato sauce) amongst others. The set menus are priced at AED125, AED135 and AED140. Regular a la carte menu is also available during Ramadan.
Special Group Iftar Packages
For guests who prefer to break fast exclusively, private Iftar packages are available for group bookings. Not only guests get to enjoy the lavish Iftar buffet spread but menu can be specifically customized to suit one’s budget. Prices start from AED125 net per person onwards.
Sheraton Dubai Creek also offers Suhoor menus at AED85 and AED115 net per person when they dine at The Lobby Café. This menu is also made available for in-house guests where they can enjoy the meal in the comfort of their own rooms.
