For my recent iftar, I chose the H Hotel, Dubai. It has got modern finesse. Just about 5 kilometers from the eye catchy Burj khalifa, this hotel will leave you in awe. The Delphine restaurant and bar serves one of the best iftars.
On the ground floor of the H hotel, this place offers personalized services. The Delphine restaurant generally serves one of the finest experiences in town. The light golden metallic colored interiors along with the seating are done perfectly to suit the mood and lighting of the restaurant.
I loved the simplicity of the Iftar. The make your own salad section was something I found quite attractive. The restaurant offers salads from different parts of the world, like the Waldorf salad, honey roasted carrot salad and also arabic salads such as tabbouleh, a refreshing salad made of parsley, tomatoes and a lemon vinaigrette, also mint and onion.
Then I tried the different kinds of Labneh, a creamier and low in calorie version of cream cheese, traditionally sprinkled with olive oil, olives, tomatoes and cucumbers. Here at Delphine, I tasted the delicious varieties of spicy and mint labneh. The next thing on my list was the potato moutabbel. Along with this I devoured the usual creamy hummus and fattoush.
The bread station was decked up with a variety of breads. I tried baguettes and Arabic style bread with lentil soup. It was amazingly filling. The breads were served fresh. Fatayer are special Arabic stuffed pastries with cheese or spinach. A unique item was the date filled fatayer. There was also cheese rakakat. The cheese and Zaatar saj station was another unique attraction. You must try all of it here.
There was a counter full of dates, which just amazed me. For the main course, there was a cauliflower and potato dish. Next, the farfalle pasta with creamy tomato sauce was out of this world. The sautéed vegetables tasted brilliant. Even though it was a buffet, each dish was impeccable in taste. It did burst with flavors.

The irresistible widespread of desserts had finesse and an Arabic touch to it. The fruits were fresh, cakes and baklava, were to die for. The date mouhalabia and the passion fruit mousse cake I tried had something unique about it. Priced at AED 150 per person, the overall experience was amazing. This place is a must try.
