From organising lavish buffet spreads to sumptuous suhoors, Muslims in Dubai are known for celebrating the holy month of Ramadan by sharing their bounty with friends, relatives and the less fortunate. However, with people staying at home in light the events surrounding COVID-19, the Islamic month will be observed a little differently this year. For example, the Covid-19 restrictions on socialising have led many restaurants in Dubai to offer Iftar home delivery in Dubai. Similarly, some eateries are also offering suhoor food delivery in Dubai.
Suhoor is the pre-dawn meal consumed by Muslims in preparation for a day of fasting during Ramadan. It’s a significant element during the month as fasting Muslims need to ensure that they have sustained enough energy for the day ahead — especially those who need to work during Ramadan.
With this in mind, here are our picks of some notable eateries that have extended their delivery options for the Islamic pre-dawn meal:
London Dairy Café
The London Dairy Café kicks off our list of places with the best suhoor delivery in Dubai this year. The gourmet cafe has rolled out an array of offers to mark the holy month, with a series of set menus for iftar and suhoor.
Available from 10:00 pm till midnight, the Suhoor Menu comes with freshly baked flaky croissants, an all-day protein-rich breakfast with items like French Toast and Mushroom Omelette to nourish the body. Wash it all down with Americano, tea or freshly squeezed orange juice. Finish off the meal with a choice of delectable Brownie or Tiramisu. Needless to say, if you are looking for a suhoor food delivery option that can keep you satiated during your fast, ordering from the London Dairy Cafe is the way to go.
