So What Exactly is Iftar?
During Ramadan, Muslims around the world fast from sunrise to sunset. Before dawn they partake in Suhur, the first meal of the day. They fast during daylight hours, and when the sun finally sets in the evening, it’s time for Iftar, Iftar is known as “the breaking of the fast,” and it is a very special occasion for Muslims those observing.
Many people enjoy gathering with their community to break their fasts for Iftar. Families, friends, and neighbors will get together to share a meal in the evening. And now, you’ll be able to celebrate Iftar with all of us at Sidon Lebanese Grille and Bakery! You’ll be able to experience the close-knit community feeling that comes with breaking the fast, and you’ll get to know members of the community while sharing a meal. And if that’s not enough to convince you, you’ll also be able to enjoy our delicious buffet filled with Lebanese cuisine!
