If you are looking to host a company iftar dinner in Singapore over Ramadhan*, the halal-certified 21 On Rajahan all-day dining restaurant in Days Hotel Singapore at Zhongshan Park will be hosting a series of Mediterranean and Asian iftar buffets nightly. 

Chef de Cuisine Faustino Picardo Ines Jr and his team will offer several menus over the week. Every Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, 21 On Rajah will feature a specific Mediterranean country's cuisine for the dinner buffet. On Tuesdays, Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays, diners can enjoy a Mediterr-Asian buffet which serves up Mediterranean and Asian culinary delights. 

Mondays: Italian Fiesta 
On Mondays, diners are transported to Italy. The spread includes favourites such as potato gnocchi in gorgonzola cream sauce, braised Lamb shank in Mint sauce, braised osso buco and calamari with spicy aglio olio. Four different sauces will be available to complement pastas: pesto, tomato bolognaise, mushroom cream and chilli aglio olio.

Tuesdays, Thursdays and weekends: Go Mediterr-Asian
The Mediterr-Asian nights feature seafood on ice such as tiger prawns, green mussels, scallops and snow crab. Diners can also look forward to classic Mediterranean fare such as lamb moussaka, chicken charcuterie and beef ensemble, baba ganoush muhammara dip as well as traditional Asian dishes such as lamb and chicken satay, assam Nonya fish, Ayam panggang and Singapore style chilli slipper lobster.

Wednesdays: Viva Espana
Feast on beef albondigas (meatballs) with smoked paprika, Spanish lamb stew with white beans, fish fillet escabeche and crema de la Madrid and more. Diners can savour seafood and chicken paella and tortilla patatas ala Espanol (Spanish omelette with potatoes) straight out of the pan. 

Fridays: Moroccan Feasts
On Friday nights, diners are treated to Moroccan feasts redolent with the subtle aroma of exotic spices. The buffet features appetizers such as Arabic fattoush salad, hummus, potato salad in ras el hanout**, followed by main courses such as spring chicken in Moorish Rabat spice, slipper lobster in homemade harissa sauce, mussels with herbs and sautéed zucchini with tzatziki. The signature Moroccan baklava is a must-try to conclude the meal.

The highlight of the buffets will be the carving station, where diners can try the signature slow roasted US prime ribeye with shallot jus and 21 On Rajah's signature homemade sauce, rock salted whole salmon with creamy dill sauce, and roast lamb. 

The popular Asian pasta live station will be available nightly during the fasting month instead of appearing on selected days. Pasta is paired with local sauces such as Singapore chilli crab, Nonya laksa and aglio olio hae bee hiam (dried chilli shrimp paste). 

For more private gatherings, the Private Dining Room with a view of the neighbouring Zhongshan Park can accommodate up to 35 persons. The room is strictly by reservation only. 

Post-Ramadhan, 21 On Rajah will ring in the festivities with a Hari Raya Puasa special of 50% off for the second diner, valid from 17 July 2015 to 31 July 2015 for both lunch and dinner buffets.
