Eating during Ramadan

Learn about the Muslim culture from inside.

Ramadan is celebrated in the ninth month of each year according to the Islamic calendar, but as this is different from the west, the exact date varies each year. During this time, Muslims celebrate their month of fasting and only eat after sunset and up until before dawn, so a lot of bars remain closed during the entire day. However, meals are still available in large international hotels as usual and, if you don't want to go to one of these restaurants, you can buy something in the shops, that open at sunset. If you're lucky enough to be invited by a Moroccan to the 'iftour,' which is the breaking of the fast at sunset, you will enjoy a spectacular banquet. There will be no lack of "harira" (soup made with tomato, onion and saffron, and that usually has chick peas or lentils too), dates, eggs and traditional Moroccan cakes or pastries are for dessert. In short, the 'iftour' is an unforgettable celebration that you shouldn't miss.
