If you're starting to think that iftars only consist of mezze and grilled meats, or if your bored palate needs some excitement, then Wok It is just what you need to shake things up. The Far Eastern restaurant is serving a flavoursome buffet of dishes cooked in small quantities so they're fresh and frequently replenished.
Try the daily soups, such as bakso featuring meatballs with noodles, bok choy, beansprouts, celery and fried shallots. Other delicacies are banana and sweet potato cooked in palm sugar with a hint of cinnamon, gado gado – steamed vegetables with a sauce made of ground peanuts, bakmi goreng – wok-fried noodles with scrambled egg, chicken or seafood and beef rendang – a stew served with jasmine rice, tropical salad and sambal. Dessert includes the house speciality street food martabak manis (exclusive to Wok It in Dubai) and es cendol – traditional pandan jelly with palm syrup and coconut milk.
If buffets aren't your thing, from 9m to 1am there's an a la carte menu and takeaway for suhoor.
INFO: Dhs85 per person for the buffet inclusive of dates, juices, water and tea, Sheikh Khalifa Bin Zayed Street, Bur Dubai, opposite Centrepoint and Bur Juman Centres, 04 388 5711.
