A gathering spot you will love visiting with family and friends
If you feel like getting together with your loved ones during the Holy Month in Abu Dhabi, there is a family-friendly spot downtown that proposes an indulgent offer not to be missed.
Every day, from sunset until 12am midnight during the Holy Month, visitors can book a table at Cafe Arabia and enjoy Iftar.
Arriving at sunset time, our reserved table lit with candles was already awaiting us filled with many different starters to share displayed in cozy Oriental crockery.
From dates, hummus, fresh and delicious fattoush salad, mix of olives, pickles, and a hearty lentil soup and freshly baked Moroccan bread, our appetite was definitely awakened.
There is also a starter called Fatteh that caught our attention. Though it is a Levantine classic, it actually was our first time trying it in Abu Dhabi. Prepared with warm carrots, zucchinis and chickpeas, it was topped with a refreshing mint yogurt and a drizzle of pomegranate syrup with bread to mop up the sauce.
When ready to move to the mains, the waiters brought three impressive mains to share. Changing the mains on a daily basis, Cafe Arabia allows you to discover different cuisine styles from around the world, with once again the idea to share and gather around a homemade meal.
The Moroccan tajine was definitely our favorite with vegetables and lamb melting in our mouth. We also enjoyed the healthy and tasty Moroccan style mix of vegetables – cauliflower, carrots, peas, zucchini – topped with dried apricots and almonds. The Chicken Musakhan was the third main and it was actually served at cafe Arabia for the first time.
Juicy and tasty, it was served on a pita bread, prepared with roasted chicken morsels, plenty of caramelized onions, pine nuts and a pomegranate sauce.
To conclude our delightful experience, we ended on a sweet note with a couple of legeimat and of course a cup of Arabic coffee.
Believe it or not, this incredible offer is priced at 75 AED only. While the room at the ground floor was quite busy at sunset time, we observed that it was even more crowded when we left an hour later. So, don’t waste time and book a table soon to avail this offer during Ramadan.
Oh, just in case you haven’t visited this cozy cafe before it was one of our first hidden gems 3 years back, it is now settled in an independent villa facing Umm Al Emarat Park on the 15th Street. It still has a homely vibe with plenty of colorful Oriental lamps, lovely rustic and antique furniture carefully crafted, comfy sofas to relax.
