Ramadan at The Ritz: Wust El Balad, Molecular Gastronomy & More at The Nile Ritz-Carlton!

Cairo 360

Standing tall and proud along the Nile in Downtown Cairo, The Nile Ritz-Carlton is marking its first Ramadan in style, offering some rather special fetar and sohour options, the headliner of which is the hotel’s take on the Ramadan kheima (tent) Wust El Balad…

Tradition Meets Luxury…

Set up in the hotel’s spacious gardens, Wust El Balad stays true to its Downtown location, but with a touch of the contemporary in combining both the traditional and the modern – a perfect blend that has already been a hit with those looking for a wholesome family experience, as well as those looking to kick-back with friends and have a bit of festive fun.

So, what can you expect at the Wust El Balad Tent? Well, let’s start with the food; expect some of the best, most homely and authentic Oriental bites around. That’s not all, though – a staple of late Ramadan nights, shisha, is also on offer, with every flavour under the sun available, while TV screens will of course be beaming out your favourite Ramadan TV shows. Throw in a dose of live entertainment and music and you have a quintessential Ramadan experience with The Nile Ritz-Carlton’s trademark panache.

Molecular Ramadan Gastronomy…

Foodies often have it hard during Ramadan – there’s only so many sambouseks one can eat in a month – but The Nile-Ritz Carlton restaurants, Culina and Bab El Sharq, are doing things with a bit of flair with their respective fetar buffets.

We’ve seen carving stations and even street-food stations across Cairo thus far this Ramadan, but have you seen molecular gastronomy stations? Adding some dramatics to proceedings, The Nile Ritz-Carlton chefs are set to get theatrical with some truly unique foods that bring food, science and also art together on your plate, for 395LE per person all inclusive.

Ballroom Dining…

Alternatively, for a decidedly more intimate Ramadan experience, The Nile Ritz-Carlton’s stunning Al Qahira and Alf Leila Wa Leila ballrooms are ready and waiting for the most lavish dining experiences you can have this Ramadan – the dramatic fountain by the entrance, the grand foyer and the upholstered walls and exquisite chandelier will make you feel like you’re in some kind of period piece of a mosalsal.
