Fogo de Chão
This one is an absolute must for meat-lovers, as it offers a Brazilian touch on your typical Arabic cuisine. Running from sunset to 9pm, Brazilian steakhouse Fogo de Chão’s nightly iftar gives diners the options to mix both traditional Arabic favourites with South American speciality cuts such as alcatra (centre sirloin), cupim (the hump from the zebu cow), and marinated chicken, all served tableside by gauchos. Sounds good to us.
Where: Central Park Towers, DIFC
When: Daily, sunset-9pm
