Dubai Vegan Days, Flavors by Zendy and The Rove Healthcare City celebrates the Holy Month of Ramadan with a 5-course Vegan Iftar Menu.
Celebrate the Holy Month of Ramadan at The Daily restaurant in Rove Healthcare City with a delectable, harm-free, vegan Iftar featuring plant-based creations from master vegan chef Zendy Marsam and grains and superfoods from Rootz Organics. Following the success of Dubai Vegan Days’ series of dining experiences, this unique Iftar menu allows vegans, supporters, friends and family alike to come together to break fast in a way that elevates traditional favorites and brings vegan dishes to the centre of the table.
The Iftar menu features five courses, a reflection of the Five Pillars of Islam – the five principles that provide a framework for life for Muslims throughout the world. The menu focuses on conscious eating, pacing diners through courses that allow for both reflection and festivity.
In line with religious tradition, the fast will be broken with a Date Medley, featuring refreshing water, natural dates, dates stuffed with pistachio, and a date with orange and pecan.
To begin Iftar, a light bite is best to replace fluids and prepare a fasting stomach for more filling foods. The menu’s Fluid Replacement Course offers soups, smoothies and nutritional shots expertly crafted to break fast in a healthy manner.
For the Salad and Vegetable Course, Rove’s Salad Buffet will be a garden of fresh fruits, vegetables, vegan dressings and more allowing diners to pick their favorites and create their own plates.
The Grains and Protein course will feature dishes that highlight the two building blocks of energy and fibre in a healthy vegan diet. For the Main Course Platter, diners are invited to indulge in fragrant roasted tempeh with smoked BBQ sauce; rich mushroom, barley and okra stew; hearty jackfruit curry with millet; and an array of side dishes that will delight vegans and non-vegans alike.
To complete the experience, the menu will offer refreshing watermelon and a silky raw chocolate orange cake.
Shopaholics will be pleased to hear that a vegan pop-up market will also be at the event.
The Rove Vegan Iftar Menu is just AED 99 for adults and AED 49 for kids. The demand for vegan-inclusive iftar options has never been higher, so book your table early!
