Different Iftar at The Daily…

IMG_5364

We had a chance to enjoy our “different” Iftar at Rove Downtown Dubai hotel’s The Daily restaurant, which is open from 6:30 am till late night daily. I wouldn’t call it a restaurant, though, it is a whole new concept with laptop stations and free Wi-Fi, kind of a place to eat, network, work and socialize at a time, whilst admiring great views of Burj Khalifa and downtown Dubai. Arabic, Western, Indian and Southeast Asian cuisines feature on their all-day menu.

The Daily’s Iftar and Suhour menus have been specially designed by Chef Spencer Lee Black and offer a selection of locally and regionally inspired dishes crafted with fresh, locally produced ingredients, which reflect the casual nature of the restaurant.

The Daily follows the hotel’s modern design with traditional Arabic touch ups. Although The Daily has a totally new vision to dining, families with kids won’t feel forgotten in there.

They have an amazing kid’s area right in the corner, which allows parents feel comfortable for not disturbing others. Also, parents can enjoy their meals while watching the kids playing right in front of them. I was impressed with the variety and quality of available entertainments for kids:

Loved the dining area for kids with mini chairs repeating the design of the ones for adults, as we all know kids love imitating us and this is the perfect way of making them feel proud or else feel own self as an adult.

Talking of dining made me remember the authentic Arabic food we enjoyed for our Iftar. There was a buffet station for starters and salads. The main course is served to your table directly from kitchen which is constantly replaced by waitresses until you stop them. Main dishes are served in 4 rectangular plates and one round plate. The round plate had an Arabic mixed grill. Rectangular plates: 1. Lamb ouzi. 2. Chicken moulokieh 3. Arabic rice 4. Vegetable salona.

#Kamronbek’s second most loved place in The Daily was a juice station with huge jars of different juices. Time to time he’d been simply approaching daddy, saying: “Papa, juice” and they together heading to juice station to pour the fresh juices to a fancy glass and enjoy it.
