Escape the crowds, keep safe and skip the baggage drop queues by celebrating Eid at home with some of Dubai’s impressive culinary wizards spreading festive magic on your dining table, at your garden and most importantly – in your belly!
With the absence of Iftar Khaimas & Suhoor Majlis during Ramadan in Dubai this year, many of us spent a few more nights than usual slaving over a hot stove in front of onlookers with hungry eyes, to get a 4-course menu rolled out before the clock struck sunset. And as sad as we are to see the magic of the Holy Month pass us by, the pressures of making Eid celebrations special whilst abiding to the constantly changing regulations are getting tricky. So, we’ve compiled some refreshingly unique ways to pat yourself on the back and relax with your loved ones this May 13th – Eid Mubarak.
