The lowdown Event: Asateer iftah When: Thursday July 11 Where: Atlantis The Palm, Palm Jumeirah
Asateer, meaning myths, provided an old Arabian atmosphere for diners looking to break their fast at Atlantis. The beachfront tent laid on traditional activities including chess, backgammon and cards to keep guests entertained, while live music was supplied by oud players along with an Arabic monochord artist. With computer games and large-screen TVs to keep younger visitors occupied, the generous array of food included Middle Eastern favourites, manakish, kebbeh and fatteh.
