Muslims across London will be observing the act of fasting during the holy month of Ramadan. This means that individuals who practise the religion of Islam will abstain from eating and drinking from sunrise and sundown and engage in forms of worship throughout the day.
The sacred month is especially important as it is one of the five pillars of Islam and allows muslims to grow spiritually and build a stronger relationship with Allah (God). Many families will gather to break their fast by usually starting with a glass of water and some dates before following it with a delicious meal.
Some restaurants in London will be providing the public with Ramdan specials for the next 30 days. Here is a list of where you can find these places and the prices of the items on their menus.
The Terrace Restaurant
Located in Knightsbridge, The Terrace Restaurant has a menu packed full of flavour. The restaurant serves a variety of dishes and specialises in Middle Eastern and classic Lebanese cuisine.
One of their other appeals is their impressive bakery selection. From a delicious French toast to a scrumptious red velvet and chocolate cake, there is a tasty range of desserts to choose from.
