The holy month of Ramadan kicks off today, May 17, 2018, and Toronto’s Muslim community will fast during daylight hours, only breaking to eat after sunset over feasts called Iftar.
Whiles dates are customarily the first food to break the fast, a buffet style feast can sometimes follow.
In this tradition, one Toronto restaurant is offering a very Canadian spin and serving up an AYCE feast featuring unlimited burgers and poutine. Available nightly from 8 pm to 10 pm during Ramadan, Showtime Bistro, a halal, family restaurant in Scarborough is offering the all-you-can-eat-feast for just $25.
Those looking for a more traditional meal following the daily fast can also find buffet spreads presented by restaurants including Aunty’s Kitchen ($19.99), Crave Grill House ($23 to $25 per person), East Tea Can ($40), and La Jawab Grill ($16.99).
