An Iftar buffet with Arabic flavors but not only
You have probably visited Fairways restaurant inside The Westin Abu Dhabi Golf Restaurant and Spa that faces the golf course and lawns.
It is a buffet-style restaurant with water channels and fountains that separate the different areas inside the restaurant giving it a very calming vibe, especially during Ramadan when the Oud music and the water features mix together.
It was our first time visiting Fairways during the Holy Month and we really enjoyed the overall set up with a splash of color from fresh vegetables, appealing salads, to overfilled fruits baskets and more.
Once settled at our table, the waiters came with individual hot lentil soup bowls for us to break our fast along with a tray filled with different types of dates. A detail we really liked appreciated, before heading to the buffet.
The Fairways team has worked hard to create a menu that will satisfy any palate. If you like to discover and try Arabic food, we noticed a lot of dishes we had never heard about before, such as Modardara, Mohamara, Spinach Bel Zeit, and more. The usual classics like hummus and baba ghanoush are also served.
There is a corner dedicated to warm mezze and grilled meats and fish with an Arabic twist. Their falafels were actually quite crunchy and light. They also serve an impressive platter of lamb ouzi this Ramadan.
Another corner is filled with Indian specialties such as the Murgh Malai Tikka, kadai paneer, Jeera Aloo, a comfy and flavorful Dal – called Dal Pancham Tadka- and an Asian corner filled with many delicacies to try from vegetable or chicken dim sum to steamed fish with soya, Tom Yum Soup, Fish Cake and more.
But to be honest, what amazed us most was the dessert selection, with the entire hallway of Fairways showcasing more than 30 different Arabic sweet options and specialties from different countries.
Their Arabic Sweets selection is beyond impressive!
For those who plan to visit Fairways Iftar this year, be wiser than we were and save room for their dessert selection as it is really worth it.
We adored their Turkish Baklava served warm with saffron ice cream scoops served in between the layers of the baklava. Their qishta ice cream – with a distinct orange blossom flavor – was another winner. There is a lot more to try from Znud Al Sit, Mafroukeh, Assorted Malmuls, Halawat Al Jaben, Namura, Borma Pistachio, Katayef Asafery, Aish Al Saraya, Shoaybiat Cream, Basma Walnut or the classic Um Ali and date pudding both served warm.
A pure feast for the eyes we promise there are many other desserts apart from the ones we have mentioned.
