Rich Cafe, Dubai
People that know me would agree that I’m not a big coffee fan. Except for the occasional frappucino from good ol’ Starbucks, coffee and I have a distant relationship. As for tea, I start to enjoy it because of the ritual of afternoon tea~scapades that I so love now, poshness and all. But hot chocolate? Ooh that’s different. My love for this dates back childhood! It gives me this cosy feel like a night-in on winter, sitting beside the fireplace while reading a good book.
Hot chocolate can easily please me. Milo, Ovaltine, Nesquick, Holicks, Cadbury…put in some mallows and they’re goooood. But if you want a proper hot chocolate than powder and water, in Dubai you can head to Rich, a cafe in the Mall of the Emirates and order one. I’m sure the food is great and all ( didn’t try yet) but their hot chocolate is to die for! A friend brought me here one day and told me to try the famous hot chocolate and yes I could thank her forever for introducing me to my old love but richer and yummier! 😉
Paying it forward, I brought a friend to this cafe yesterday. He ordered a cappuccino tho (guys *rolling my eyes now) but who cares I still ordered my love HC. And we got free carrot cake!!! A giant carrot cake! I didn’t know that my friend has friends in this business giving free cakes just because they like you! I’m so dragging this friend around now tho I just borrowed him from husband :p
