After being invited to many Iftar previews pre-Ramadan, we were fortunate enough to go along to preview the delicious dishes on offer at the beautifully-located Emirati restaurant Seven Sands, along the water’s edge of The Beach, JBR. Joined by our favourite blogger friends, we had a lovely evening sampling the divine menu items while taking the opportunity to catch up with one another. See below for our recommendations!
Location: The Beach, JBR
As expected, Seven Sands did not disappoint. We were lucky enough to try a huge variety from their buffet, including Shorbat Harees for starters, Lamb Okra, King Fish Machbous and Chicken Margougah for mains, and their simply sensational Date Pudding for dessert! A huge thank you to Kris Audrick for capturing the great photos from our night.
