More restaurants are pivoting to takeouts and contactless deliveries to make up for lost businesses. While it’s not the kind of service with a smile that the hospitality and F&B industries pride themselves on, restaurants in the city continue to serve customers in the best way they can — by bringing a sliver of joy to their home and families especially during this festive season. Here are ten eateries with varying budgets and food options to observe this quiet but meaningful Ramadan.
