You know I’ve been to Dubai Mall a 100 times and it’s surprising that I’ve never noticed this cafe before. Well partially it could be because it’s hiding between these luxury shoes at the shoe district in Dubai Mall, which most of us wouldn’t dare to enter unless you got a great bonus that night. A premium space with those ultra luxurious brands and golden interiors guarded by extremely well dressed human beings. Well that’s where this Vogue Cafe is located, in the center of this million dollar shoe business. A slipper that caught my attention had a price of Dhs 1850. You know after that I was only looking at my food at Vogue Cafe.

They have a part time DJ who would play music every Thursday and Friday. The atmosphere is nice. You are just sitting here in between these premium brands and people. People who visited this cafe was definitely trendy, rich and stylish. Vogue cafe did have some good menu to offer and you’ll find out more as you scroll down.

Berry Blast is Raspberry, blackberry, cranberry and lemon juice topped up with soda and lemonade.
Mango Melody is Mango, strawberry and cranberry blended together with passion fruit.
Bocker Glory is Vanilla ice cream blended with chocolate bar and chocolate sauce.

They make lovely drinks. I very much enjoyed the Mango Melody but bocker glory was my favourite 😉 You could taste that blended chocolate in that thick vanilla shake and the taste was awesome! It’s some of those drinks that you don’t mind gaining that extra gram 🙂 Berry blast was too much of a blast of berries for me but my wife loved that one.

The lentil soup was not as thick as I expected but decent in taste. Out of all their salads I ordered their Vogue garden Salad just because it had the tag name vogue next to it. It was very pure and contained basic vegetables with nothing really fancy in it but it had that right combination to make it a good tasting salad. Zaatar chicken strip was the real winner here. The Zaatar chicken strips were flying in everyone’s mouth easily and that pomegranate dipper made it even better.

The actually shocker came for the main course. I felt the portion size for the amount charged was a little too less specially the Lamb Chop. By the way this was one of the thickest lamb chop i’ve had recently. Normally I get it served thin but this was ONE thick piece. The meat was also cooked well and any meat lover would enjoy it but I doubt if he’ll be happy with the portion size. The New York steak came dead to me with a matt finishing. Normally I like to see them come to me juicy and glossy but here the sirloin came looking dry. It was nice in the mouth but the presentation could be better. Salmon was pretty much standard. They just taste the same for me anywhere I eat.

They had some interesting desserts. I loved their cheese cake here and that panna cotta along with strawberry ice cream on top makes that cheese cake go rock n roll. The cherry hibiscus sorbet made that hot chocolate fondant taste better. I typically try avoiding fondants but here the sorbet convinced me to have more of it. Thanks to the banana walnut cake my stomach was complete. A filling one. Luckily the main course portion was less in size so was able to enjoy the banana walnut cake to the maximum.

You know when I come back here the first order for my drink is definitely the hot mochacchino. You could really taste the premium chocolate in that hot cappuccino. One of the best i’ve had. A must try this one 🙂

The black current tea was a great sip after our meal here. It was a pretty tea with a pretty taste. It had that unique taste which was very rejuvenating.

    1. You know I totally agree with you here. Their beverages and desserts were one level up compared to their maincourse 🙂 Vogue cafe is located a premium spot and for their targeted customers, affordability is not a problem but are more concerned about the quality and service.
