Shangri-La at Qaryat Al Beri introduces a new afternoon tea concept: “Dessert in the Desert”
Executive Chef Reiner Lupfer at the Shangri-La Abu Dhabi has created a special menu in collaboration with Executive Pastry Chef Muhamad Jejen telling its guests a story around the “Dessert in the Desert'” with its brand-new afternoon tea.
The chefs aim to bridge the gap between ‘then and now’ by giving French pastries a modern touch with the use of local ingredients. This new menu is designed to mirror life in Abu Dhabi, where modern living interlaces smoothly with the city’s history.
Chef Reiner Lupfer says “The aim of our new afternoon tea is to give something back to the local people. With the ‘Dessert in the Desert’, we want Abu Dhabi residents to enjoy a relaxing afternoon within the Arabesque architecture of our beautiful Lobby Lounge and to feel proud of the way that their culture is represented.”
The “Dessert in the Desert” afternoon tea menu features an extensive selection of scones, savoury bites and pastries infused with local ingredients. Chocolate, golden raisin and plain scones are served with a side of clotted cream, strawberry jam and whipped Medjool date butter. For those who prefer savoury treats, there is a selection of delicious snacks like sumac-spiced grilled chicken brochette, turkey ham and Arabian cheese wrap, Gulf prawn cocktail and crispy pita crouton with hummus. Selections include saffron-raspberry bavouris, curry-orange cheesecake, zaatar-strawberry tart, cardamom-mascarpone mousse profiterole, rosewater-almond chocolate cake, pistachio-lemon dacquoise and baklava financier.
Available daily from 14.30 until 18.00 at the Lobby Lounge. The price for a set for two including coffee and tea is AED 220++ and including two glasses of bubbly is AED 360++.
