Happy New Year Everyone! Hope some of you managed to experience some first hand fireworks if you were in Dubai 😉 Yes, with NEW YEAR comes a NEW LOOK for my blog 🙂 Hope you guyz like it. It should now be much easier for you to navigate between categories. There is no celebration without sugar and thought this would be a good time to post about the very famous Cinnabon which has been in Dubai for many years now. I’ve been many times to Cinnabon store at Al Ghurair and Dubai Mall. This time it’s about their latest outlet at Jumeirah Beach Residence, THE WALK. We tried a little more than their famous cinnabons which would include their sandwiches, ice creams and their closely associated seattle’s best coffee.
They have 2 floors in this store. Most of their stores feel the same. They make it cozy with their leather seats, newspapers, complimentary wifi and surrounded by all kinds of inspiring posters.
Many of them were having seattle’s warm coffee, I too tried one of them which is called Raspberry Mocha kiss(Dhs 20). Loved this warm mocha and was a pleasure having it in the cold. Their javakula was a little disappointing. It didn’t give me the punch I look forward to from a typical ice blended coffee. Maybe there was too much ice to feel some punch. They had interesting sandwiches like the sheesh taouk wrap but I personally felt they could make better sandwiches. Sandwiches are not made in house and you can really tell the difference. I wish they made fresh sandwiches in house like how they made quality cinnabons.
Cinnabons! This is the best part of their store. Warm baked dough stuffed with cinnamon and irresistible frostings. The top 3 pictures are their fast sellers(cinnabon, chocobon and pecanbon). Except they also serve you in different sizes starting from classic roll(biggest), minibon(medium sized) and bites(tiny ones). They’ve also now come out with some new items like the cinnabon stix(dusted with sugar and their famous Makara Cinnamon). Most often I have a tough time to decide between chocobon and pecanbon. You cut open that chocobon and the chocolate starts oozing on the layers of the cinnamon rolls which catches your complete attention. Overall they make the best cinnamon rolls for sure and they remain fresh for a long time. We take them home and they still taste fresh as if just made. I would like to change their tag from their worlds famous cinnamon rolls to the worlds best cinnamon rolls. Atleast I haven’t found a better one in Dubai.
Cinnabon has also partnered with caravel ice creams recently. Caravel is supposed to be America’s freshest ice cream. Even though they remind me of the McDonald’s ice cream, the taste is in a different level and definitely much better. You can opt for vanilla, chocolate or mix(vanilla and chocolate). The carvel icecream is something that can’t disappoint you. I believe carvel ice creams can only be found at Cinnabon in Dubai. The chocolate cake was dense and good as it’s looks but would be an overkill if you are having it just after the sweet cinnabon. Here’s an old video where my son is making cinnabon at their store 🙂 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WxpfY-hHxZM
