Iftar at 18 Degrees

Here today I am about to speak about their awesome Iftar preview  for Ramadan which was held yesterday for all Media. It was a part of my staycation at the Hotel. The Iftar is priced for AED 198 and you can enjoy a lavish spread of food, drinks and desserts.

It was a wide spread of Breads , Manakesh, Arabic Breads, Khubbus and the best part was that everything is prepared in house over here at 18 Degrees.


There was a wide range of Cheese starting from Halloumi, Blue Cheese etc.

I was in love with the Cold Cuts specially the Beef Pastrami, so perfectly done and it really melted in my mouth.

From the Cold Mezze it was an awesome spread of Baba Ganoush, Vine Leaves, Beetroot Salad, Hummus etc.

My personal favorite was the Lamb Chops, Lamb Chanks and Lamb Ouzi. O wow this place has the best Chef who can prepare meat so very deliciously and perfectly. The meat all juicy, tender and divine in taste.
