Iftar deals to look out for this Ramadan



The holy month of Ramadan is upon us. Depending on the moon sighting, Ramadan should start on March 22 or 23. It means different working hours, different lifestyle and change in food habits as people from Muslim faith observe a month of prayers and fasting to renergise the body and soul from within.

Even though Ramadan is a period of fasting, food is central to Ramadan. Fasting means many people do not eat during daylight hours, which makes Iftar the most special time in the evenings when everyone ends their day spending quality time with family and friends.

Iftar is the time you replenish energy levels so every effort should be made to consume foods from all major food groups: fruit and vegetables, rice and alternatives, as well as meat and alternatives (which include dairy). And F&B outlets in the UAE come out with special offerings to partake in this special occasion for their customers, and themselves too.

Here are some of the offerings we have lined up so far (please visit this space for more deals and details):

 Elevate your coffee experience with The Brew Crew’s Cold Brew and Nitro Brew



Why limit International Coffee Day celebrations to just one day? The Brew Crew believes every day can be a celebration of brewing up special treats for coffee lovers, which is why the cafe located in Dubai Investment Park (DIP) 2, Dubai, is now delivering unique coffee experiences in a can.

Nitro Brew, or the mellow, smooth, and mild acidity of the Cold Brew, The Brew Crew has a brew for everyone. Both the beverages are priced at Dh15, 300ml. The other Infused beverages are complex in preparation, but the taste profile is tropical, sporty, and fizzy. The Nitro allows the drinks to be more full-bodied and memorable.

“We realised that the options for Dubai coffee aficionados to experience Cold and Nitro brews were limited, so we decided to add them to the menu. Similarly, we also wanted to provide a product for non-coffee drinkers in the UAE. And of course, we didn’t want to restrict it to only as a dine-in option, so here we are offering the brew in a can for a takeaway or delivery,” said Ashjeet, Founder, The Brew Crew.

The cafe is also home to a temperature and humidity-controlled facility, which includes a nouvelle Brew Bar in action, a Roasting Training Campus, and a Green Coffee Storage, which is where the magic happens.
