Keeping with a theme of Middle Eastern cuisine with some modern flair, Skye & Walker are hosting an Iftar for the Holy month of Ramadan that includes Arabic dishes, sweets and classic beverages, all with a healthier preparation that doesn’t compromise on flavour.
While Iftar dishes are definitely delicious- from starters and Arabic mezze to sumptuous mains and decadent desserts—there's also no denying that most of the yummy ones tend be the unhealthy ones too. But imagine if you can indulge into an Iftar feast without the unhealthy dishes ...and that's not impossible!
