Take a break to enjoy some of the city's sweetest indulgences with the family.


Ice cream at Katsuya


This stylish Japanese restaurant at The Dubai Mall has won fans for its modern interpretation of sushi and nigiri. But master chef Katsuya Uechi has also made his mark on the desserts menu, offering a number of Japanese-inspired sweets to end your meal. While the green tea mousse cake, double chocolate lava cake and yuzu tart are all tempting, it’s the simple ice cream and sorbet selections that impress. Diners can try various flavours – think strawberry and zesty citrus – garnished with fresh berries and edible flowers.


Smoothies at Common Grounds

You can't go wrong with any freshly-baked delight at this Australian-style café – a favourite among Mall of the Emirates shoppers are the flaky croissants and fruit and custard-filled pastries. There’s also gold to be found on the drinks menu. Common Grounds' range of smoothies include fruit and vegetable blends, plus a few treats in the form of frothy, old-fashioned milkshakes. The Coffee & Dreams smoothie is made from a chilled blend of 85% dark chocolate, sorbet, banana and cacao nibs, and it's absolutely delicious.


Mykonos scallops at HUQQA

HUQQA caters to those with great taste in style and dining alike. The highlight of the Anatolian restaurant’s decadent dessert menu is the Mykonos 'scallops' plate – a gargantuan offering of crisp dough cases filled with decadent princess cream and moist, dark chocolate brownie, topped off with ice cream, fruit and caramel sauce. It’s a feast for both the eyes and the taste buds. This super-sized dessert will easily feed three to four people, so resist the temptation to order one just for yourself.


Acai bowl at Wild & the Moon

Located in Dubai Festival City Mall, Wild & the Moon has a menu which follows an all-raw, vegan and organic philosophy. Toeing the line between breakfast meal and hearty dessert, its acai bowl is a firm favourite for diners looking for something a little sweeter. Made from frozen açaí berry puree, banana and a dash of coconut milk, and then topped with fresh mixed berries and housemade granola, this bowl presents the perfect pick-me-up sweetness hit that won’t leave you feeling guilty. 


Peppermint crisp souffle at Brunswick

Brunswick at Mall of the Emirates boasts a menu with café favourites, and the dessert offerings delight with thoughtful flavours in decent-sized servings. For a refreshing treat, try the peppermint crisp souffle. A throwback to the childhood favourite chocolate bar, this dessert is all grown-up. The rich yet delicate souffle, partnered with creamy chocolate sorbet and peppermint custard, makes for an after-dinner mint that can be enjoyed any time of day.
