Choco-licious Choco Monarch

Lately, many cafes have sprouted around Dubai that offer crepes, ice creams, desserts of various kinds. These type of cafes make perfect hangout those like me who love sweet dishes.
My quest to find some delicious desserts lead me to Choco monarch. Located in Al Ghurair, this store offers chocolate based desserts and shakes. My guests and me tried various dishes. Starting from chocolate fondue to pancakes to lava cake. The best part about their dishes is the generous use of good quality chocolate, both dark & milk. The service is quick and place is always packed with crowd of various ages because everyone loves chocolate!
Choco monarch keeps offering various discounts & also special rates for students. Otherwise too their prices are pretty reasonable. Do check them out and let me know if you liked my suggestion ❤

Drool-worthy! Mr. Ben’s Cookies Dubai Mall

My biggest weakness is desserts & sweets. I can’t stop thinking about them and trying out new ones every time I celebrate me cheat day. I call it a celebration because why not? My body deserves a day’s break! So one fine cheat Day, I visited Mr. Ben’s cookies at Dubai Mall.
The waft is enough to draw you closer to them. The freshly baked cookies were flying off the shelves. I skipped my lunch for this so I wasn’t going to go with one cookie. I had three.. one bite of their delicious cookies and I forgot what calories are.. I forgot sugar and everything else. Goey, melting chocolate in the center is a sight that makes me weak!
Suggestions, do try the triple chocolate cookie and the date & chocolate cookie. Both are sweet and heavenly. They were so good I had get a box for home too. Pair it with hot cocoa and you are good to go!

 

Their branch at Dubai Mall has limited seating but if you do get a chance.. get it and consume it at soonest.
Apologies if my images made you drool ❤

Dessert Heaven – Sukkar

I am a hardcore dessertarian which is why most of the time my instagram is filled with images of various desserts. When an invite from lovely lads at Sukkar popped up, I was super excited to visit them & try out their delicious offerings. Sukkar in Arabic means sugar & the name is apt for sweet treats they offer.

Located next to my favorite Logma, this place was once for brownie box. Same has been replaced with Sukkar.  Whatever I tried, everything was proportionate to price & quantity. We tried, arabian affagato, rose kunefe cheesecake, pretzel brownie, massive snickers milkshake, nutella well, assorted puffs & rosemilk cheesecake.
My favorites will always be the nutella well & pistachio & rose milk cake. I have never had a more moist milk cake.
If you haven’t visited sukkar yet.. Do make sure to try out their desserts once. I would skip multiple meals to try out their sugary goodies ❤
I will let the images talk to you & tempt you!

Spanish Food Affair With Espana Dubai

Espana has been voted as the chefs choice of restaurant recently. So when I got the invite, I was certainly excited to try out the same. I must admit though, I generally prefer tapas because not at every place you get vegetarian options especially the paella. So I brought along a friend who is a Spanish food expert.

We started off our evening with some delicious sangria, an entire pitcher fell short to us! It was delicate and I would definitely prefer to cool off with it in summers. We Also enjoyed some scrumptious tapas, namely stuffed potatoes with mushrooms & goat’s cheese crouquetas. My guest enjoyed her chicken skewers dish.
The tapas are priced well for the portions served. It’s not to tiny and perfect for a light bite. Following our tapas experience we had vegetarian paella & my guest had seafood one. I have had a chance try vegetarian paella only twice. Once in Casa De Tapas & once here. I was surely surprised by the variety offered for vegetarians which definitely makes a decent meal. My guest’s seafood paella was filled with mussels, octopus & prawns all cooked to perfection(guest opinion)!
We ended our meal with delicious churros that were served with chocolate chilli sauce & carrot cheesecake. The former was a standout while the latter dessert was not really impressive. We paired our churros with Macchiato Martini which was a strong choice of drink but went really well with the desserts.
Overall, it was fun night at Espana and I will certainly be visiting the place again for ladies night. We loved the live music feature. Unsure of what is the exact decor inspiration however its quirky and attractive!

Farzified At Farzi Cafe Dubai!

Why Farzi? Because Farzi means creating an illusion. What you see is not what you always taste! That is the success mantra of Farzi cafe, a modern spice bistro by Zorawar Kalra.
Farzi cafe changed the scene of Indian cafes. New experiences and exquisite ingredients excite the diners. After gaining huge popularity in India, Farzi cafe opened its doors in Dubai.
I have tried the food at Farzi Cafe Mumbai and our experience earlier had been fabulous! Does the Dubai branch match the expectations? Read on to know.
My guest and I visited on a very busy Friday. The restaurant was packed with diners and not a single table was left empty for long. Looking at this it definitely did increase our expectations. For appetizers we were provided, tandoori wild mushrooms, walnut with truffle haze, Tandoori chilli cheese kulchas, daal aranchini & Chaat puffs. We were also served drinks such as chai soda & Pinacolada both with quirky presentation! Of all the dishes,my guest and I loved the tandoori mushrooms & paneer kulchas.
Coming to our mains, we tried Chermoula Crusted Paneer Tikka & vegetarian potato burger. Both delicious on their own way!
To end our meal we tried two stunning desserts. One named the dirt pile and other was a version of gulab jamun and rabri. The desserts impressed us massively! The deconstructed mud cake also known as THE DIRT PILE is Cleverly disguised as mud, the crumbles of cake are moist. The dish comes complete with a spade so that you can dig out some delicious elements such as fennel crumble, nuts, berries, chocolate truffles and even ice cream!
The service is quick and despite the crowd, the staff were very attentive.  Special thanks to the Manager Mr Manish for taking care of all our needs.
We were totally Farzified by the food and its presentation. The dishes are worth the wait and price wise everything on menu is reasonable. We are definitely going back to try more dishes!

Spreading Unicorn Fever – Unicorn Vibes Sweets

Unicorn trend is just setting in UAE. At first it was the unicorn latte from various places and now an entire cafe is themed around the same. Unicorn vibes sweets is located in business bay and offers variety of homemade ice cream flavors like cookie monster, peanut butter and many more. They also have ice cream sandwiches, cookies, unicorn water, flavoured water, lattes.
IMG_9011
Definitely the cafe is trending all over social media especially Instagram. The cafe is actually smaller in size and can accommodate around maximum 12 people. When I had visited it was crowded with families & teenagers of course all had come around to try the unicorn delights!
In terms of taste, we tried all the flavours and peanut butter was my favorite. You can choose to have in a cup or cone and every serving comes with two free toppings. Was the taste worth a drive? I am not so sure in that aspect as the flavors need major improvement. The ice cream is not creamier as one would expect and also the flavors do not stand out. The unicorn water is a strawberry flavored water which is just about fine. The cookie sandwich is something one should try!  I also happened to try milkshake which was refreshing.
Overall, ice cream flavours & the service needs to improve massively. The cafe is a hit already and if these elements are taken care of then they would definitely rock! With is h cute quotes, glitter wall, unicorn toys and an entire wall poster with wings where one can stand and take an “angelic” shot of themselves this cafe is totally Insta Worthy!
