Iftar at Coco Veranda.

Coco Veranda's iftar is small and concise, as opposed to the wide array of short-eats you'd otherwise expect from an iftar spread. It's more of a solid meal, consisting of Kanji, a main ( choose from rice, pasta, or burger) and a drink.

The Food

Starter — AKA Kanji

Coco's kanji has the yellowy hue of godhamba kanji minus the texture. There are generous chunks of chicken in it, and it's very filling. It's a bit more watery than the usual household kanji, and I think the rice had been ground before boiling — ergo the thinness of it. It was flavoursome and the spicing was just right.

Main — Beef Burger

Feeling it a bit too early for rice and wanting something light, we opted for the burger.

It had a juicy and flavoursome, well-ground (and home-made) patty which didn't disappoint, just like the chunky chips that accompanied it. There were thin slivers of pickles in it which added a welcome tang, and personally, I'd have loved to have seen more of them. The lettuce and tomatoes used were fresh and crisp, and the bread was also light and fluffy. Altogether a well-constructed burger.

The Drink — Psychedelic Sunset

Something went wrong with my camera and it refused to focus, so apologies for the blurry image. This was by far the best of the lot – a supremely refreshing and tangy fresh juice consisting mainly of fresh strawberries and undertones of citrus.


In addition to these three, you also get dates and tea/coffee. It's a good iftar, but theirs isn't the best porridge in town. It's a place to hit up if you're looking for an unconventional iftar package which breaks away from the whole samosa-rolls-and-fried-goodies combo, and want something a bit more substantial.
