We know we’re all about the food, but when we don’t give a blind-eye when it comes to décor. For a boutique to be located in a gigantic mall like Dubai Mall and somehow try and figure out how to distinguish itself from the rest, seems like a mammoth of a task. For one, there are hundreds or cafes and restaurants located at Dubai Mall to choose from. So how does Angelina manage to draw in crowds of customers effortlessly without even trying? We guess reputation is key in this context.
The story of Angelina
Angelina was founded in 1903 and has been building a reputation as a place of sophistication and indulgence for over a decade now. The famous Parisian boutique was linked to one of the most high-end patisseries in Paris and before you knew it, over thirty tea houses and boutiques were opened all over the world. The interiors of all the stores seem to be consistent in terms of combining elegance, charm and refinement to create a sense of tranquillity and refinement.
Afternoon Tea for two, please!
The Parisian boutique is a great spot for catching up with friends and family over an indulgent session of Afternoon Tea after a busy day of shopping. It may not be one of the most indulgent spreads we’ve seen, but the precision and delicacy in plating up the sweet and savory snacks are one of the finest we’ve seen.
Our Afternoon Tea selection comprised of an assortment of tomato and mozzarella, cucumber and cream cheese, and ham and cheese finger sandwiches, followed by beautifully presented canapes such as prawn and salmon mousse, peanut butter and foie gras mousse, and caprese.
You can end your meal on a sweet note with mini pastries including the famous and iconic pastry Mont Blanc combining meringue, light whipped cream and chestnut paste vermicelli, Paris New York and Éclair chocolat.
Agreed, there’s no fun in an Afternoon Tea without scones and clotted cream, but the rich and flaky croissant served with homemade jam and butter sure does make up for it. The Afternoon Tea package comes with a selection of teas, coffees, hot chocolate and orange juice. We highly recommend trying the Angelina Tea with a hint of marigold and exotic fruit flavors, and Mont Blanc with a hint of candied chestnuts, biscuit and toffee.
