A special suhoor

Ongoing until end of Ramadan
IDAM by Alain Ducasse has created something special for suhoor. The restaurant, located in the Museum of Islamic Art, is allowing us to indulge in an Arabian and international feast. A large mezze selection (including snails), a choice of soups, the signature cookpot to share and chicken or hammour for main course are just some of the dishes on offer. There are also Arabic and international desserts.
