For an indulgent yet healthy Iftar meal, consider this plant-based creation from Veganburg – Rasa Sayang Burg ($13.90). Between fluffy buns comes a Quorn patty to provide a meat-less, protein-packed alternative; then topped with vegan sunny-side-up egg and a fiery smear of sambal sauce. Complete the enjoyment with some vegan rose Bandung and coconut fries ($6.90), and temper the spice with a chocolate-coated chendol popsicle ($4.90).

The Iftar Pop-up Buffet (from $74) starts off with light appetisers of bubur lambuk daging, or beef porridge; sweet kueh, and fruit rojak; before moving on to hefty mains of beef rendang, sambal chilli lala with petai, and ayam masak merah. More than just local favourites, the spread will also include egg shakshuka, Australian beef sirloin, a mezze platter, and other international treats.

Monster Curry is best known for its impressive serving size; and the same generous portions can also be found at its Halal-friendly concept, Monster Planet. It will launch a limited-time Ramadan bundle – hearty enough to feed four hungry mouths and more. Aptly named Monstrous Combo ($99), the feast will come with roasted chicken thigh, prawn tempura, lemongrass chicken, salmon, sausages, meatless popcorn salad, and takoyaki balls – all laid atop rice and Japanese curry. Sides of mozzarella cheese sticks, ondeh ondeh honey toast, and a tower of Bandung completes this feast. Sharing bundles are also available for takeaway.

The Indonesian restaurant has curated a special Ramadan Set Menu ($32) to celebrate the festivities. Gather four or more of your loved ones, and dig into bakwan udang, a crispy prawn fritter. Save space for the apor ayam, where chicken thigh comes stewed in creamy coconut curry; and semur Jawa daging, a savoury beef stew. Other dishes come in the form of beef skin tossed with chilli, Jakarta-style lamb sate, and bananas boiled in coconut milk.
