Bulgari Il Cioccolato
First they brought us luxury jewellery – now Roman brand Bulgari are bringing us luxury chocolate, at boutique Bulgari Il Cioccolato. The second café concept from Bulgari (the first was in Tokyo) features sweet treats and drinks, which are handmade at the Bulgari workshop by a master chocolatier. All the menu items have an Italian influence and ingredients include Mediterranean saffron and Sicilian pistachio. They are presented in luxury jewellery cases, just as Bulgari’s diamonds.
Either dine in on the sweet treats with a tea or coffee in the café (complete with Bulgari interiors, and images of celebrities wearing Bulgari jewellery, naturally), or take your chocolates away to indulge at home or give as a gift. There’s also some interesting flavours to try including fig and balsamic vinegar, and lavender and salt. To mark the opening of the café earlier this year Bulgari produced a limited-edition chocolate called Bulgari Dates and Pistachio. Expect to pay Dh150 for a box. It’s at the indoor courtyard at City Walk 2; call 04 385 6179.
