This year, Ramadan begins on Sunday 5th May, when many Muslims around the world will be fasting from sunrise to sunset for 30 days. After resisting all forms of food and drink all day, a hearty halal meal, once the sun goes down in the evening, is a must. The meal that breaks the fast is known as ‘Iftar’, where families and communities come together to dine.
During Ramadan, East Street will have a special set menu to celebrate their authentically Eastern dishes from the Muslim countries of Indonesia and Malaysia. The menu will run for the duration of Ramadan, from Sunday 5th May to Tuesday 4th June. We’ll also be hosting Iftar Taste Tour events during the month of May, where 5 courses will cost just £18.
