Turkish delight- Divan Patisserie at The Dubai Mall 

 Being a dessertarian, I couldn’t be more happier to visit Divan and explore Turkish delicacies and desserts in-depth. 

Divan has been serving customers since the late 90’s and is proven to be one of the most popular dessert parlour in Istanbul for its treats such as colourful macaroons, handmade chocolates, fruit tarts, cakes, pastries and cookies. 

Just two months ago, Divan opened its doors in the iconic Dubai Mall in hope to receive some love from The humans of Dubai. The ambiance is simple, calm and comfortable with elegant settings.

We had, 

Turkish coffee 

It is very strong and thicker than the usual American coffee. It all depends on your taste preferences. As for me, it was too strong for my liking and would rather have the Turkish tea. 

Macaroons

Great variety of appealing macaroons, crispy from outside, and soft chewy center with an intense burst of flavor, just the way a macaroon should be! More than ten flavours available and our favourites were vanilla and pistachio.  

Cakes

Excellent selections of cakes and it was difficult to choose one but I made my choice and I wasn’t disappointed at all! 

  • Chocolate mousse and  pistachios– It’s great for teatime, delightful as a dessert, and ideal for those who are not a fan of too sweet! 
  • Cocoa Ganache-Incredibly moist and delicious pyramid shape cake but has a strong flavour of cocoa so it all depends on an individuals liking. 

Chocolates and Biscuits

A box of gourmet chocolates  make a brilliant gift for any occasion! Divan has ready-made and customised chocolate gift boxes/hampers available offering unique and delicious flavours. My personal favourites, 

  • bitter chocolate covered in caramel 
  • Cassis 
  • Hazelnut  
  • Raspberry 
  • Pistachio cookie

Fondue 

The perfect juicy and sweet treat! We quite enjoyed dipping fresh fruits into hot milk chocolate fondue! Altho, the portion size could have been better.

Overall, it was a successful discovery as for the delectable and luxuries Turkish delights with a relaxed atmosphere. If you pay a visit, do try all the pistachio flavored sweets/desserts as they are incredibly delicious and worth it!
