“Iftar refers to the evening meal when Muslims break their fast during the Islamic month of Ramadan. Iftar is one of the religious observances of Ramadan and is often done as a community, with Muslims gathering to break their fast together. Iftar is done right after Maghrib (sunset) time. Traditionally, a date is the first thing to be consumed during iftar when the fast is broken, source: wikipedia”
In Ramadan we as a family usually serve one kind of food for Iftar, but when we have guests for Iftar we should serve several kinds of food to suit the desire of everyone, therefore the menu will be as follows:
Drinks like Juice, Milk, Laban A’yran which is a drink made of Yogurt and water .
Salad or Fattoush.
Desserts like Qatayef, Knafeh, Loukumads.

Above: Soup (Red lentil soup), Mini Pizza and Cheese Sambosak, Ush Al-Bulbul, Sheikh Al-Mehshi (the two dishes on the left, it is vegetable marrow stuffed with cooked ground meat then fried, one with tahini sauce and the other with yogurt sauce and served with rice).
