We’ve been searching high and low for a restaurant that masters the art of chocolate desserts; however during our quest we always seem to discover restaurants where either they’re way overpriced, lacks individuality and uniqueness and something we’d eventually get fed up of with repeated visit. However, our prayers have been answered with the launch of Dip n Dip in Jumeirah.
Dip n Dip is a Canadian based dessert café that serves some of the most premium quality chocolate dessert cafes we’ve tried is that they use rich Belgium chocolate and incorporate cocoa butter into it as opposed to oil. The addition of cocoa butter not only smoothens and lightens the chocolate but also leaves you craving for more. It is chocolate that doesn’t make you feel heavy and makes you crave for dessert after dessert; yes, dreams do come true! The variety of desserts the menu at Dip n Dip has is like nothing we’ve ever seen before, with over fifty desserts for you to choose from (we’re talking Crepes, Waffles, Pancakes, Fondants, Mousse, Pain Perdu, Milk Shakes and the rest), Dip n Dip will definitely have you under the spell of being their regular customers. And why wouldn’t you? Not only does Dip n Dip possess the best quality and variety, but their desserts are also a great value for money (average range from Dhs25-Dhs40) making it impossible for us not to love them!
Unlike our previous posts, for Dip n Dip we will let the pictures do the talking. We can assure you of one thing for certain, all the desserts we tried at our tasting session tasted a million times better than it looked. They taste so good; you don’t even feel guilty after devouring them 😉
For our tasting, we honestly wished we could sample everything in the menu, but being realistic, we sought the guidance of Dip n Dip’s Operations Manager to recommend the popular dishes.
From the Crepes selection we tried to Brownies Crepe which is a French crepe filled with chopped up brownies, topped with their glorious Belgium chocolate of your choice (we opted for milk, dark and white because why not?). We also tried the Fettuccine Crepe which is a crepe sliced up to resemble fettuccini with a scoop of ice cream and topped with chocolate of your choice The chocolate is then poured at the table to bring some theatre to the dish (we opted for milk chocolate)
From the Waffles and Pancakes section we tried their famous Waffle Stick which looks like a waffle lollypop. It’s a classic waffle on a stick drenched in your choice of chocolate/chocolates sauce(needless to say we opted for all three again)
The batter for the crepes and waffles are prepared on a daily basis to ensure freshness and maintain the quality of the dessert.
We also tried the Chocolate Fondant which is a chocolate cake with a gooey chocolate inside. Topped with melted dark chocolate and served with ice cream (It’s a classic dessert that ever disappoints).
Another favorite was the Brownies in Cookies Pan which is an individual pan cookie baked to order with pieces of brownie with every bite, served with chocolate and ice cream. The cookie is crunchy and complements the gooeyness of the brownie perfectly
Moving on to the Pain Perdu, we tried to Caramel Pain Perdu which is thick-cut slices of bread soaked in batter and fried to perfection served with caramel sauce and ice-cream. We highly recommend this dish for breakfast, it is unlike any French toast we’ve ever had!
To accompany our delicious spread of desserts we opted for two delightful drinks. The first drink we tried was the Dip n Dip Freezy which is a rich chocolate drink with micro chunks of real Belgium chocolate of your choice: white, milk or dark. We also order a Cookies and Cream Milkshake made from Oreos to go along with our desserts.
Top Tip: Order some Arabic Coffee to end your visit at Dip N Dip! It absolutely delicious, and also helps bring your sugar high to a lower more comforting level due to its bitterness.
