  3. The lavish iftaar buffets are awesome especially the ones in Dubai and other Muslim countries. However, I prefer not to go out for meals at Iftaar time because it gets really crowded especially in Dubai because even the non-Muslims come to avail the Ramadan deals and they don't let those fasting get a turn first.

    1. Not a fan of lavish Iftar buffets personally but nothing wrong in a once in a while outing with family and friends.
