Ramadan Kareem, all.
Last week we returned to Huqqa in Dubai Mall with the family to review their iftar set menu. The girls were quite excited, not so much about the amazing Turkish food that they serve but about the Ipads they have in the restaurants. Priorities ay, kids these days.
For a bit of background on Huqqa, click here for my previous post which covers the where is it, where to park, how to get there and what they serve.
So, what do you get?
Here’s the menu, linked to Huqqa’s instagram page :
We loved their Ramadan decor. Huqqa’s interior is already glamorous as it is, and it helps that their gold and bronze hanging fixtures go well with all the many moon and stars.
There’s lots of booths and couches should you want to pick a spot with the family, and thanks to Covid and the barriers that have been introduced, you won’t have to worry about being ‘too close’ to another table.
Once seated and our drink orders taken (note : you get a choice of lemonade, coke or Ayran), they were quick to serve the starters onto the table. They do amazing bread, which always goes well with hummus and lentil soup. No turkish iftar spread is complete without sarma (stuffed grape leaves), sogurme (eggplant salad) and their spicy ezme salad.
For mains, you get a choice of four options. We went for their shish taouk (chicken kebabs) and wagyu adana kebabs. The girls loved the chicken, not so much the latter but hey – that’s what parents are for right – we eat everything else 😉
And for desserts – a choice of gullac (milk and pomegranate pastry), sutlac (rice pudding) or hayrabalu – which we’ve tried many times before in our previous visits to Huqqa so we opted for something a bit special (note: this is not included in the iftar spread) – their tsunami cake.
What an amazing creation – Snow White comes onto the table and the staff lifts up the plastic casing, releasing her skirt with all the colourful sparkles. Highlight of my evening 😉
If you like your turkish fare, come to Huqqa for a nice iftar. It’s 189 AED per person, let me know how it is 😉

- Iftar : 189 AED per person for the Set Menu , and for those who are wondering – yes they do serve shisha outside on their terrace
