Restaurants Open During Ramadan

Recommended Posts

Here in RAK the only options are the (expensive) hotels. I can't for the life of me see why the likes of 'starbucks' et al can't have a little section hidden off or something also. Going out for a coffee and the paper is my only relief during this heat...I put the kids up in the playcentre in the mall and escape for a blissful hour alone. Now I'm stuck wondering around for the hour which just isn't as pleasant (especially as I'm 8 months pregnant and simply don't want to walk around for an hour). Again, what does my head in is the inconsistency....if I were willing to pay an arm and a leg for lunch in the local hotel it would be fine (although there's nowhere for the kids to play anyway). Bah humbug!

I just got back from a weekend at RAK & found it so much better for Ramadan than in Abu Dhabi. We even bought food from a stall on the side of the road that one of the cafes had set up. We were in a line of all Emirati's! Good to see they were taking the fasting seriously. But they did have a nice snack just before heading to prayer.

Totally agree with what you are saying. Ramadan drives me crazy. Total shame I can do a runner from this country everytime it comes around. The only thing that keeps me sane is the 5 hour work days that my husband gets for the entire period. Yay to that!
