There are approximately 30 days of fasting in Ramadan, and as many days to enjoy iftars.
Here Hotelier lists our 10 must-try unconventional Iftars and Ramadan treats -- featuring Thai, Vietnamese, French, Indian and many such alternative flavours and ways to break your fast or dine during the holy month:
Smoking Doll will serve an oriental menu, with Thai and Vietnamese influences.
To start, diners can opt for dishes including the vegetable spring rolls, fish cakes served with a green mango salad and palm sugar dip, and the Pandan Leaf Chicken, with a portion of Thai pickles on the side.
Guests looking for a lighter option can select the Som Tam salad, a spicy mix of green papaya tossed with beans, tomato and chilli, or Bangkok Tom Yam soup, a traditional hot and sour creation comprising lemongrass and lime leaves, with dumplings on the side.
For the main course, the restaurant will serve Pad ki Mao, spicy noodles with chilli, holy basil, soy sauce and chicken.
Alternatively, the Thai Green Curry is made with eggplant, green beans, red & green chillies and sweet basil leaves, and is available with chicken, beef or tofu and seasonal vegetables.
In addition, the wok fried dishes include chicken and cashew nut stir fry and stir fried mushrooms. The main course is accompanied by sides of steamed jasmine rice and a bamboo basket of steamed broccoli, garlic, ginger and sesame oil.
