Its a new cafe in Dubai’s ever growing food scene that is not only exciting and yum but it knows exactly how to impress us by serving the best and highest quality Chocolate. Who doesn't LOVE it now?
Alison Nelson’s Chocolate Bar sounded so tempting and irresistible that I had to go and try it out.
Luckily for all of us they have 5 branches around town, so no excuses, there is one close to everyone of you to visit. There is one in Mirdif City Centre, 1 in Mall of the Emirates, 2 in the Dubai Mall, 1 in Mercato Mall and 1 in the Boulevard Downtown. There is also one Chocolate Bar in World Trade Centre, Abu Dhabi and one in the Al Ain Mall.
Taking from the name I was expecting a cafe with drinks and chocolate patisseries and deserts but once I relaxed in the shiny Champaign colour sofas and had a look at the menu I realised its a big deal with a complete menu of soups, salads, mains, deserts and kids specials. Since I was with a dear friend and ME being in love with my food and not compromising in that area at all, I went all the way and ordered a hearty 3 course meal.
The Thai Shrimp Salad was just a delight with the spicy Thai dressing, warm grilled shrimps, large slices of Tomato, cucumber, wheat sprouts, green leaves and fresh basil. its a medley of freshness and flavour and I have to warn you its for the one who can take the heat of Thai dressings, so if you don't eat spicy food give this one a miss.
While having the salad and soup they served the main dishes which I had to ask them to take it back not to get cold. For the main we ordered Chicken Quesadilla and Penne Shrimp Broccoli Pasta. Chicken Quesadilla was just good. loved the filling inside the quesadilla, chicken was perfectly cooked and right amount of veggies and cheese in a grilled tortilla bread served with a scoop of Aioli sauce and tomato salsa on top. A classic Mexican dish.
All together it was a great and exciting experience that ME and my friend truly enjoyed.
The total bill was about AED 370 which is fairly reasonable for the quality and amount of food, as well as the lavish venue with beautiful view to the one of the worlds best shopping destination with luxury brands surrounds you.
There are lots of variety of sandwiches and mains as well as variety of deserts like Alison Nelson’s famous Chocolate Shots!!! Also you can order your own party and costume made cakes and chocolate mixtures. Make sure visit the Alison Nelson Chocolate Bar next time you are in one of those locations and indulge yourself in a good food.
Hope you enjoy your experience as much as I did.
