A journey to the exotic orient
Ramadan is a very special month for millions of Muslims throughout the world. A period to dedicate to spirituality, reflection and coexistence. The Noches de RamadánFestival (i.e. Ramadan nights) searches to raise awareness for those who are not so close to the reality of the second religious community in our country.
You can enjoy this mixture of spirituality, culture and music until the 5th of July in the streets in Madrid. Workshops and children’s activities, concerts or cinema as a way to end with the stereotypes of the religion and culture throughout many cultural spaces and neighbourhoods of the city of Madrid: Casino de la Reina de Lavapiés, Usera, Villaverde, Chamberí, Vicálvaro, Arganzuela, Tetuán, Retiro, La Latina, Carabanchel…
Different establishments and cultural spaces will hold some of the many activities of the festival.
Best Arabian restaurants in Madrid
As we have told you on several occasions, we think one of the best ways to get to know the culture of a country or town is through its gastronomy. In this area, Madrid has quite a few Arabian restaurants for you to discover.
So you can combine the cultural and worldly if you decide to go to some of the activities of the Nights of Ramadan Festival, we’re going to recommend some of the best restaurants of Arabian food in Madrid.
- Al Mounia: Located in the number 5 of the Recoletos street. Perfectly decorated and themed, it offers a succulent variety of dishes just as the lamb couscous or the sample menus.
- Al Fanus: Syrian cuisine situated in the Pechuán street. In addition to the variety of food options (rice, hummus, falafel, yabrat…) you can enjoy regular oriental dance performances.
- El Río Jordán: Right in the Salamanca neighbourhood (General Oraá, 69) this Lebanese cuisine restaurant will really surprise you. From the chicken couscous to special dishes like the jarufmahchi or the shiskafta, the menu is truly a culinary journey.
- Badaweia: In the 28th of the Costa Rica street. We highly recommend the pastilla, the chicken plates and the falafel and vegetables couscous.
