It is Ramadan time again, which means that Muslims will be fasting from sunrise to sunset. This happens every year for a month and it is supposedly the most joyous occasion. It occurs on the ninth month of the Muslim year.
IFTAR is one of the religious observances of Ramadan. It is often done as a community, with people coming together to break their fast. Iftar occurs just after prayer, which is around sunset.
This is a list of some of the places you could go to sample their food and learn about the culture - you do not need to be Muslim to go to these events.
