CULINARY OCCASIONS
Grand Eid Buffet at Bombay Grill
Every year, over a billion Muslims throughout the world take part in a fast during the month of Ramadan, in which they are prohibited from eating, drinking, smoking,having sexual intercourse with their partners, or even brushing their teeth during daylight hours. Besides the observance a strict 30-day fast, Ramadan is also a time of charity and meditation, and it is customary for devout Muslims to recite the entire Qur’an, the Islamic holy book, during this month. In Muslim countries, all restaurants and many businesses are closed during daylight hours, and since the entire nation is taking part in the same fast, it is a collective effort. Muslims in the United States, however, have the added challenge of living in a society where life carries on as normal during Ramadan. The hard work has finally paid off as today is Eid-ul-Fitr, which marks the end of Ramadan and is celebrated with great occasion and, of course, fantastic food.

Considering that Islam has been spread throughout much of the world, the foods that Muslims would be partaking in could be as varied as Middle Eastern shawarma, a Moroccan tajine, Indonesian rijstafels, or even Southern fried chicken. One region, in particular, where the Muslim community has developed a mouth-watering cuisine all there own is in the Indian Subcontinent. Unlike the majority Hindu population, which is vegetarian and considers the cow to be holy, Muslims in India and South Asia are avid meat-eaters and had developed some of the finest curries, stews, and rice dishes containing goat, lamb, and beef. Most of these dishes are traditional eaten in Pakistan and Hyderabad, a city in the Indian state of Andhra Pradesh, which was a historical Muslim stronghold.

On Sunday, September 4th, Bombay Grill, one of the best India buffets in South Florida, will be offering a Grand Eid Buffet featuring many Pakistani/Hyderabadi specialties. Not to be missed is the Nihari, consisting in a beef shank slowly cooked overnight in a rich and spicy sauce described to me by a Pakistani friend as being the one dish in which you keep ordering more naan (flatbread) to soak up every last drop. Additionally, Bombay Grill will be offering varied biryanis, halal Indo-Chinese dishes (try the chicken manchurian!), a live kebab station, and a live chaat (snacks) corner serving up favorites such as pani puris and bhel puri. Live entertainment will also be provided, making Bombay Grill’s Grand Eid Buffet a not-to-be-missed experience for Pakistani food aficionados.
