I was invited to the Iftar at Al Bahou, Mövenpick Hotel Ibn Battuta Gate.
The setting is amazingly decorated with Arabic Lanterns and the buffet is from different countries like Italy, Morocco, Asia and India.
A high quality buffet with international cuisine.
The most important thing to do before sitting is to have a round and have a look at all the dishes, like that you can start with what you like.
They have a huge selection of food.
The beautiful Arabic lanterns are illuminating the grand hall.
Enjoy your Iftar with the soothing sound of the traditional Qanun player.
Let’s start with the cold mezze, this dish is called Burghul Bil Banadoura, it is a Syrian specialty.
This is the beetroot salad.
The beetroot has a lot of health benefits, read more about it online.
The Labne, a sour cream cheese.
Batata Harra (spicy potato) and spinach fatayer.
The spinach are my favorite and guess what, I like to eat them cold, cold from the fridge 🙂
Chicken Fatteh, so yummy.
Here is the Sushi Station.
When I saw it, I was so excited.
The shawarma station.
The freshly made manakish station.
The famous ouzzi.
Koussa bi Laban, Zucchini stuffed with rice and meat in yogurt.
A heavenly taste.
This is the Kebab.
And we are arriving to the dessert section. I made sure to keep a lot of space in my stomach to be able to try as much as I can sweets.
When I made the tour of all the stations, the desserts station attracted me, all of the desserts looks so delicious.
This is the Turkish Delight Shawarma, you must definitely try it.
The Famous Kunafa.
I will not tell you how many slices I ate 🙂
One word to describe it:
Baklawa, Halawe Bel Jebn and Katayef.
Barazek, Ghoraybi and some cakes.
Maamoul, Tiramisu and some other sweets.
They also have a middle eastern specialty called Sahlab that you shouldn’t miss.
The Date Maamoul are so exquisite. They will melt in your mouth and you will want another one, then again another one…
And the fruit section, so fresh.
These are only a few dishes of the buffet.
You have to go to try it and see the big selection of tasty dishes.
I was amazed by Al Bahou.
