Being a dessertarian, I couldn’t be more happier to review Looshi and you will know a little later why it is now my favourite bakery. Looshi specialises in cakes, macaroons and pies.
Just as the holy month of Ramadan arrived, Looshi has introduced two new Ramadan desserts. Not being a fan of Original Kunafa (Cheese/cream), I asked my family to taste and share their opinions as well.
- Mango Kunafa
Layers of Mango, Cream and Kunafa! The addition of fruit especially all our favourite summer fruit the mango takes it to a next level. The Kunafa pastry is crisp in the mouth and oozing with cream goodness. The pastry cream is light and the delicious pieces of mangoes finish it all of. I warn you, you would want a whole jar to yourself. We were 5 people and all of us loved it! Looshi, please add it to the menu permanently?
- Nutella Kunafa
Hazelnut Chocolate Filling Kunafa. I have heard of it before but never bothered to taste it. Surprisingly, crispy and sweet goes really well together. (But what doesn’t mix well with Nutella?) Ideal for those who prefer having desserts that are not too sweet! This is a must have for a Iftar party dessert! (Especially for all the chocolate lovers)
Looshi has also introduced new cupcake flavours,
- Peanut butter cupcake
It taste like a peanut butter plus bit of chocolate combination. If you enjoy both, Reese’s and cupcakes it’s a treat meant for you! (Secret: You will find a Reese’s in the middle) I personally liked it as for moist, rich and delicious flavor! I usually remove the frosting off but this was creamy and fluffy.
- Lotus cupcake
Moist cake with a touch of lotus. I would have it with afternoon tea but without the frosting as my taste buds weren’t impressed with it.
Ooey Gooey Brownies
- Brookie Bites
This is the ultimate gooey brownie that you always watch on Instagram. All our favourite snacks in one dessert!? Layers of Cookie, Fudge Gooey Brownie Topped Off With Toasted Marshmallow And Salted Pretzels! Simply heavenly but too sweet of my likings.
Overall, it was a super successful discovery! We finally ticked off another bakery in Dubai from our list and added it to the ‘one of the best bakeries’ list! It is a little bit pricey but so worth it.
Thank you Rana, Alia and the rest of the team!
