The Coffee Club – Wasl Vita, Jumeirah

Located in Wasl Vita, in a quaint little corner is The Coffee Club. Walk in, and you’re met with the delicious scent of coffee wafting around the café. First impressions always matter, and I decide I’m going to fall in love with this place.

Our chirpy and sweet server walks us through the menu, which is a wondrous mixture of Italian, American and even Thai dishes! My guest, who’s big on shakes and frappés, orders a Caramel Loaded Shake [AED 34]. No words to describe this one, just look below…

How about a loaded #shake #today? It's almost the #weekend after all, which means yes to #calories! @thecoffeeclubme

Our order consists of Mac and Cheese Croquettes [AED 28] and Chicken Quinoa Salad [AED 52]  for starters, with Chicken Thai Green Curry [AED 49] and Double Cheese Bacon Burger [AED 64] for mains. All suggested by the server and suiting our requirements. While I preferred the Thai Curry for its subtle taste and creaminess (would have loved some spice in there too!), the Double Cheese and Bacon Burger weighed higher for the sister. ‘Cause who doesn’t love bacon, right?

 

As is the norm we both dive in for the dessert menu and choose the Red Velvet Pancakes with Raspberry Mascarpone [AED 55].  The description and picture were enough to lure us but they failed due to the hard texture of the pancakes.

My cup of flat white [AED 18] saved the day though…always rely on coffee, and you’ll never be disappointed!

Cheers to the work week ☕️

If we’re going back: I’m a burger person so that section is what I’ll be turning to when I head to The Coffee Club next.

Wasl Vita Mall is home to a number of restaurants, which one is your favorite? Let me know your thoughts…

Until then, happy eating! xx

What’s in the name Paper Fig?

Our recent breakfast was at Paper Fig, located in University City, Sharjah. What looks like a usual building from the outside, is a contrast with its interiors. Wooden walls which serve as a great backdrop for pictures, charming servers, and a vibe that’s somehow similar to Afternoon Tea places, Paper Fig became a fast favorite.  Continue reading “What’s in the name Paper Fig?”

Breakfast at Fumé, Downtown Dubai

I’m not the smiling person you see…unless I’ve had my first cup of coffee. And when you are required to drive to Downtown Dubai and give a sweet smile to your server before you’ve had one, the thought seems almost impossible. Continue reading “Breakfast at Fumé, Downtown Dubai”

At The “Hub” – Mozzo Centrale, Umm Suqeim

Mozzo Centrale, meaning “central hub”, is a restaurant aiming to offer an Italian culinary affair for its guests. I recently came to know of this place when an invite popped into my inbox. It’s perfectly located at Umm Suqeim, an area that is fast becoming popular for its restaurants. Continue reading “At The “Hub” – Mozzo Centrale, Umm Suqeim”

A Cheesy Meal – Maward Patisserie, Uptown Mirdif

Let me tell you a story. A beautiful story about chocolate and cheese, who strived to be together but couldn’t until they were joined in the kitchen of Maward Patisserie. Continue reading “A Cheesy Meal – Maward Patisserie, Uptown Mirdif”

Dean & Deluca Is Back With A Bang!

When you’re sent home a surprise cookbook with an invite attached, it obviously peaks your curiosity! That’s just the way Dean and Deluca did it. And I was glad to be invited to a wonderful opening. Continue reading “Dean & Deluca Is Back With A Bang!”

Lounging At Café Italiano

I love how cafés are coming up in Dubai. There’s one at every corner, and though all of them might not be the best, there are some that really catch your attention. A café usually serves coffees with a few selection of pastries. But this has changed now with menus that almost imitate a full-fledged restaurant. Continue reading “Lounging At Café Italiano”

Perfect For Your Appetite

I was recently invited by Appetite – The Shop to try their delicious healthy food. Since the place closes down by 6 PM, it was proving difficult for me to personally head to their locations in Al Quoz and Business Bay. Therefore, delivery to the rescue!

The manager at Appetite was kind enough to deliver the order at my workplace. And I have to tell you, their packing is so so well done! I ordered a Mac n Cheese (wondering how this is healthy?) Cajun Chicken & Guacamole wrap and Thai Chicken Curry.

From these, my favourite was the Thai Chicken Curry. I’m not usually a fan of Thai curries, but this one was appetizing as it didn’t have that strong coconut flavour that the usual ones have. This was served on a bed of rice. The portion is quite a lot and is enough for one person if they don’t plan to eat for the next 5-6 hours.

Sadly, I found the wrap a bit too dry for my taste. It was also too big to finish and quite stuffed with a lot of chicken and cheese.

For drinks, we had the Summer Fiesta and Basil Lemonade. Quite different flavours from the usual ones I order. I preferred the Summer Fiesta more. With flavours like raspberry, blueberries, apple juice and ginger. It had a very sweet – tangy taste with the sharp flavour of ginger. Different to my taste buds, but I enjoyed it.

Lastly, for dessert, we chose a Home baked Carrot Cake and cute muffins stuffed with date paste and raisins.

Not being a fan of dates, I preferred that the least. The carrot cake made up for it, though! It reminded me of the one served at Starbucks. The cake was moist and juicy, with the walnuts providing a nice crunch in the middle.

From the pictures online,  I can see that Appetite is quite a nice place to have a piece of cake and a cup of coffee. Since it’s located in Bay Avenue, it can serve as a prime location for office goers to stop by for a quick meal.

Hungryoungwoman recommends the Thai Chicken Curry, Summer Fiesta drink, Mac n Cheese is you’re a fan of a lot of cheese (who isn’t?) and their carrot cake which is a must try!

Until next time…
