The nice part about taste of wafi is the savoury and sweets that you find here is unique and not something you’ve seen before. Interestingly most are homemade, some with the finest ingredients from cakes to biscuits, chocolates to fresh organic produce. There were many stalls. Now it’s difficult to show off all of them here, so I chose to showcase some of them which were my favourite at the event.

The other nice part is many of them offer you samples before you buy. Out of those I tried some of the memorable ones would be:

Homemade Polvoron cookies  had a unique taste and deserved a thumbs up.

HeartMade cheese buns which are gluten-free snack made mainly with tapioca flour and a special combination of premium cheeses were handmade. Free of preservatives and all natural is what they claim. They come in frozen packs in small size of 25 buns or regular size of 50 buns. Dhs 90 for 25 buns.

Ranjeena finajans – Dates mixed with special sauces were amazing. They did have few other interesting items like jams and date brownies but the one really rocked was surely their ranjeena finajans. A must try if you are here. I felt the date brownie never stood a chance next to the chocolate brownie.

Saudi Mammoul by Dawaaq which had a blend of coffee was again an impressive one.

Toma’s cake pops looked very pretty and perfect for occasions. Priced at Dhs 20 per piece and 15 dhs per piece if you want a custom design.
