Stay safe as you break the fast with your loved ones, order in an iftar
A Greek feast: This Ramadan, as you make a vow to stay safe and look after yourself and your loved ones, we don’t want you to miss indulging in an iftar. We bring to you a few cuisine choices that you can enjoy in the comfort of your home. First up, nothing beats a cosy Greek feast-style iftar at home. Curated for four people, it includes OPA’s most popular Greek dishes. Whether you’re craving Pita Bread and traditional dips of Tzatziki, Spicy Feta Dip and the signature Hummus with meat, or the fresh Greek salad, the set will include one of each. The heart of the set lies in its array of offerings ranging from four Spinach Pies to Roasted Marinated Baby Chicken. It wouldn’t be a meal without Baklava Sundae and Greek yoghurt ice cream.
