Guylian a famous brand in the name of Belgium Chocolate. As long as I remember I always used to like sea horse shaped chocolate from my childhood and still love it being an adult foodie. Recently Guylian has came up with a cafe at a new location The Pointe Palm Jumeirah.
Being a guylian chocolate fan it was happy surprise to know that guylian has notched up to the level of cafe where not only chocolate, desserts but we get to try some delectable menu as well.
Yesterday my friends and I were there to try out their special breakfast menu and we preferred to sit outside to make the most of the pleasant weather and have a heart meal with stellar view of Atlantis.
What we tried there?
- Smashed Avocado
- Eggs Benedict
- Tomato and Bocconcini
- Belgium Pastries
Our culinary session started with the serving of fresh Belgium Pastries in butter and chocolate flavor. I tried the butter croissant one and it was exactly the way it should be, flaky from outside and soft like pillow interior. I even tried it with the chocolate dips served along and thoroughly enjoyed it.
Smashed Avocado toast were delightful not only in taste but in visual appearance as well. This simple yet healthy dish was a hit on our table and I could see that it got finished in no time 🙂
Tomato and Bocconcini another healthy option made an appearance on our bloggers table. It was a huge serving and seemed a little difficult to eat as it was lavishly filled with the healthy filling, so we opted to cut it in halve and share with each others. Only one remarks made it to my ears was ” how delectable it is” and finished it in no time from our table put a confirmed mark to the statement.
Not to forget Egg Benedict with salmon, something egg buff would take delight to delve in. Soft poached eggs served on a bun layered with salmon topped with holandaise sauce makes it a complete meal for a person. I could only eat half of it as there was no space in my stomach as I had to keep some space for toothsome desserts.
Now, lets talk about the desserts. On chef suggestion we got to try three different variety Passion Temptation a passion fruit sauce filled dessert which I was not expecting would impress me in taste but I was wrong and wanted to try more of it 😉 The second one was 100% Pure Pleasure, yes as name suggest it was a pure pleasure for dark chocolate lovers, creamy and luscious taste of mousse was melt in mouth in each spoon. The last one Guylian Chocolate and Hazelnut Pyramid that literally came in pyramid shape was another visual treat. We all throughly enjoyed the dessert part the most I believe and why not, well all three were made up of Guylian chocolate.
They have a good variety of beverages too but I preferred to kept it low and ordered just a fresh orange juice for myself rather experimenting with mock-tails or ice-teas.
A big thank you to Guylian Cafe for letting us to try delectable spread and we all can’t wait for the opening of other branches in Dubai
