Guide to Iftar and Suhoor in London 2021

Unfortunately many of our favourite halal restaurants are still closed this Ramadan due to the current rules so finding a place for iftar isn’t the easiest thing at the moment! Many have turned to meal kits just for Ramadan whilst others are offering drive-thrus and a few lucky ones that are able to open are doing late openings. We’ve put together a list of restaurants that are running special Ramadan offers this month 

A Guide to Iftar and Suhoor in London 2021

That Fat Cow

That Fat Cow is a new online butcher concept that specialises in high end steaks cuts (think Japanese wagyu, USDA Black Angus etc). They have teamed up with the Shahid Afridi foundation to bring you all a special Ramadan iftar box featuring, well, steaks – one wagyu sirloin and one dry-aged British native breed T-bone! And that’s not all, the box includes chocolate covered dates, skin on fries, a herb butter for the steaks and chocolate fondants. All profits made from these Ramadan boxes will be donated to the “Food For Food” programme in which a family of 5 will be fed for 15 days plus a contribution to the building of water pumps!
