The holy month has arrived, but our hunger to eat our way through every iftar and sohour in the capital with our besties has arrived with it. If you’re the kind of person that likes to spend Ramadan in style and splurging on so much money, then this isn’t the article for you. This article is for people who want to have bougie Ramadan...without actually having to sell your kidney.

This is where the Four Seasons Hotel Cairo at The First Residence and its First Nile Boat come thru with their offerings for the holy month that will make you, and your loved ones, shook. Greek sohour on the actual river? What about some mashawy by the pool, in your own private Cabana? An extensive Egyptian Iftar buffet as far as the eye can see? Not sold? Take a moment to chillax and sit back, and let us take you on a delish journey.

Let’s start with Aura, the renowned Shami eatery that can speak for itself with its set menu for EGP 585++ where you get to indulge in all things mezzes, grills, tahines and desserts. Oh, and if you want to add EGP 300++, you enjoy a private cabana by the pool.

Up next is La Gourmandise, the restaurant will make you all of Teta’s Egyptian classics but make it fancy. EGP 600 ++ will get you all dem Ramadan favourites -- think soups, salads, mezzes, mashawy, carving stations, live stations and desserts and more, much more...

Last but not least, we’ve got Zoe. She is the latest addition to the First Nile Boat that is all about dat Greek life. EGP 550++ will see you having an iftar that is Mediterranean meets Middle Eastern on their upper deck. Think Instagrammable Nile views with some souflaki and tzatziki sauce.

Both Aura and Zoe provide sohour with a minimum spending of EGP 150++. Oh, and kids between 6-12 get 50% off. Anyone below that gets all the nomnomnom on the house.

Again, this article isn’t for everyone. So if you’re one of those people that want to have a stylish Ramadan on a budget, make your reservations now via +2 02 3567 2021.
