Ready to Join?

Dear lovely SWA members

This is my 8th year in Dubai and having attended many iftars I can tell you (if you don't already know) that you will soon tire of the typical buffet set up which I detest for many reasons (mainly since it's unhealthy as you overeat , goes against the principles of Ramadan and results in so much wastage! Protected content want to feel bloated? Tired of standing in line at buffets? Care about your health and the environment? ...read on please!

So, whether you are fasting or not you are cordially invited to break fast/have dinner with fellow SWA members of InterNations.

Protected content is a fairly new Italian restaurant in the heart of DIFC that showcases the essence of Italian food. Those of you that know me, know I would never host an event unless I've tried the food myself. Chef Salvo is amazing and prides himself on healthy, fresh food and even making the pasta from scratch. He's a true Sicilian and if you join you will get to sample his culinary delights whilst taking care of your hunger/stomach gently :-)

You will have had enough Lentil soup, homous, kebab, and ouzi to last a lifetime by now so tonight's menu is ITALIAN and a change from typical iftars here :

* Dates/juices/Fennel water with lemon for fast breaking

* Soup (Tomato or Potato)
* Vegetable bites
* Healthy salad
* Bread

*Main course - choice of ONE from the following 3 choices:
- Lamb in the oven with potato
- Lasagna Funghi (veg option)
- Ravioli Pistacchio

*Mini trio of deserts (Tiramisu, Panna Cotta & Fruit Salad)

*Fresh juices (lemon mint & orange juice)
*Soft drinks (for those that must! lol)
* Water
* Coffee or Tea

The price is AED Protected content we have a special InterNations price of AED99 only

Your main course can be selected on arrival to be made for you while you enjoy the soup, salad and bites.

Please arrive a little bit early since this is not a buffet and to mingle with fellow members. The building has prayer rooms for those wishing to pray Maghreb and return to eat (the way we're supposed to :-) lol) . Also for Aisha prayer.

There is also a beautiful outside terrace for the smokers!

There is 3 hours complimentary parking in the building which is perfect. It's also less than 5 mins in a taxi from Financial Centre Metro .


For those wishing to go for a shisha afterwards, there are many options nearby and a mosque just behind Shangri-La for Taraweeh prayers.

This is an exclusive InterNations event as we will have the whole restaurant to ourselves. Trust me you will enjoy this experience in a relaxed, civilised manner enjoying the food cooked for us by Chef Salvo.

Kindly refrain from signing if you are not attending and I will require all attendees to re-confirm their attendance to me nearer the time to guarantee a place.

My best personal wishes for the Holy Month of Ramadan

Hope to see you!
