Lunch options during Ramadan 2014

Lunch options during Ramadan 2014

ramadanI can’t believe that yet another year has gone by and we are approaching Ramadan. For the third time Foodiva and I have joined forces and come up with list of independent eateries that are open for lunch options and in some cases breakfast during the month of Ramadan. My list also includes a few outlets that are in hotels, but the hotels are attached to Malls in Dubai.  I have also included all the Golf Clubs into my list. I would however advise you ring ahead to ensure that the outlet is definitely still open. To view Foodiva’s list click on this link. Ramadan Kareem.
