Iftar at Olive Oil Restaurant

First of all, Happy Sunday 🙂

I can’t believe we are down to the last week of Ramadan! I have to commend our Muslim brothers who fast from early morning ’til sunset. Imagine, they go on for more than 12 hours every day without any food nor water. And this 40-degree summer heat doesn’t help at all!!!


Ganito daw kainit sa Dubai according to Ate Lorie. Lol!

Speaking of Ramadan, have you tried any Iftars yet?


pre-iftar dates & nuts

If you are planning for last minute iftars, I recommend that you try Olive Oil Restaurant‘s honest to goodness iftar buffet.

Husband’s favorite: banana & strawberry



This was my favorite part of the buffet


My sister had two platefuls of this yummy lamb ouzi!

UmAli; a famous arabic dessert

Olive Oil Restaurant‘s buffet isn’t as huge & overwhelming as other restaurants in Dubai. However, I appreciate the fact that every dish we tried was delicious — from the salad section (which I enjoyed the most) down to their dessert station. This only proves that it’s always better to focus on quality rather than quantity 🙂


We did enjoy our iftar at Olive Oil. Hope you try it too 🙂
