The month of Ramadan is one of the pillars of Islam; it is an opportunity for Muslims to focus on spiritual growth. Ramadan brings its own set of cultural traditions that fill the atmosphere with an abundance of joy and delight. Iftar, the meal that signifies breaking fast, is a wonderful opportunity to explore Egyptian dishes accompanied at times by live entertainment and a cheery atmosphere. The festive ambience encourages people to explore Cairo’s restaurants and tents. As we’re nearing the end of the Holy Month, it is worth considering trying all the places that Cairenes have raved about this Ramadan before it ends. Whether you’re looking for Iftar or Suhoor, here are some spots you won’t want to miss.
