Today’s Iftar has been my favorite so far. It was authentic, rich in flavor and ambiance. The best part was that I felt like I was transformed to a Moroccan riad for the evening. A truly exceptional setting, cuisine and ambiance.
The Iftar at Tagine at the One&Only Royal Mirage offers a selection of Moroccan salads and starters at a buffet, while the soup and main courses are served to the table. The Harira soup was rich yet light and comforting. There was a wide range of salads and starters. All were healthy and freshly prepared.
The main courses included lamb tagine with green peas, chicken tagine with fennel, grilled seabass with rice and a perfectly cooked couscous with vegetables. The head Chef, Nima is a middle-aged Moroccan woman. That’s the secret of the authentic, home-made style dishes at Tagine.
Dining at Tagine is more of an experience than simply another Iftar option. With a traditional Moroccan playlist in the background, original décor and unmatched service, this spot will surely transform you to a Moroccan fairy tale.
If you choose to dine at Tagine this Ramadan, make sure to sample the caramel pudding from the desserts buffet. It’s heavenly and unlike any other you’ve had before. End your meal with a cup or two of the signature Moroccan tea and thank me later.
Tagine’s set Iftar menu is AED 220 per person. All the main courses mentioned above are served at the table, so you get to have a little bit of everything ?
