Ramadan is a season where family and friends get together to enjoy the simple pleasures of life: spending a whole day fasting, then breaking bread with loved ones after the maghreb dusk prayer call. In this day and age, however, the feasting doesn’t end after iftar, and likely goes on until the night.
Besides, most things are closed during Ramadan’s fasting hours, and don’t open until right before iftar. Also, we aren’t superhuman. We’re likely too tired to go out and run errands (especially food related ones) before breaking our fasts – right? Especially since Ramadan days are especially hot this year. And so what other solution is there than to peruse Talabat’s wide range of offerings?
Snacks, desserts, mains and coffee are just a dent in what Talabat has on hand to elevate your Ramadan, but the below have been carefully handpicked for your satisfaction.
Nothing says “first Iftar goals” like some classic desserts. We guarantee that if you don’t have the essential sweets on your table (Qatayef, Kanafa, Om Ali) you’ll never hear the end of it. Save yourself the stress and time by ordering from Al Kanafani, Kuwait’s premier location for top-notch, shaami approved Kanafa! To make your iftar even more festive, include Aish Saraya: Kanafani’s Ramadan specialty. This delicious syrup-soaked casserole decorated with fresh cream, pistachios and cashew nuts is as aesthetically pleasing as it is satisfying, and pairs wonderfully with a digestive cinnamon tea.
Ramadan is a season where we can justify eating dessert on almost a daily basis, so why not indulge? Chubby Balls is our personal favorite way to enjoy a treat, any time of year. What makes it even better is the festive flavors they have on offer. Dates and pistachio are extremely appropriate options to have at the dessert buffet on top of classic, Oreo and peanut butter.
This sweet haven is sure to be a crowd pleaser for any event you may be attending. Whether it’s iftar at your mother in law’s house, your friend’s ghabqa, or even a pre-Ramadan Ghraish held by your cousin, you’re sure to get on any hostess’ good side with Helo El-Samady’s famous basboosa. The semolina-based dessert drenched in syrup is a Ramadan cult classic, and always a crowd pleaser. Helo Ell-Samady has three types of classic basboosas on their menu: hazelnut, almond and cream.
We all have the “hip” person in our lives who’s constantly trying to encourage the rest of us to update our taste in desserts for the Ramadan spread. Save yourself the headache and please their cosmopolitan palate with a makeshift buffet of waffles, crepes and pancakes! CocoVia’s menu includes it all, along with cookies, molten cakes, milkshakes and more! The best thing about CocoVia is their creative use of flavor, giving you the option to sample a brilliant concoction marrying brownie and waffle. But don’t say we didn’t warn you how good it would be!
Still feeling peckish after hours? No problem! Al Rifai has its own store on Talabat’s platform to make your life a lot easier. Just select, click, and your order will be at your door in no time! All that’s left to do is start a nightly routine with your favorite nuts in front of your favorite Ramadan TV shows.
Al Naibari Coffee
And we know what’s been missing the longest (and what you miss the most) during your long days of fasting: Your coffee. We bet you’d give up eating altogether for the rest of your life if you could only have a cup of coffee, right? Well, Talabat can have your coffee delivered via Al Naibari Coffee, so that you can avoid feeling teased and tantalized by watching it get ground up in front of you at your local co-op. Al Naibari is also a hit with the locals, and will deliver the best taste in the Arabic and Turkish coffees you serve to your guests after your meal.
Lunch for Kids
Talabat is also reasonable. They know, just like you do, that children will get hungry, and they’ll either be doing a half-day fast, or won’t be fasting at all. And so they’ve launched a “lunch for kids” campaign, where you can find healthy delivery options for your children to enjoy midday. They really do think of everything!
