Find out 6 desserts to guiltelssly gain weight for ūüôā

Elvis by Mince

Two French toasts glued to each other thanks to a generous thick layer¬†of heavenly Nutella spread, and slices of banana -you could ask the waiter to have the bananas removed, the last thing you want is the taste of Nutella going to waste- and one hell of a scoop of vanilla ice cream, with caramel sauce on top…interesting, ha?

Where: Arkan Mall or 4 Abdel Moneim Hafez, Heliopolis (not in Zamalek)


Panino by Bel Gelato

Not just another¬†place selling ice cream or Italian Gelato. Bel Gelato offers a wide range of Italian delicacies, our pick would be their made to perfection¬†Panino Gelato, so what’s a Panino Gelato? It’s¬†brioche bread stuffed with a filling scoop of vanilla gelato drizzled with Belgian chocolate…PERFECTION! (Photo courtesy: Bel Gelato’s Facebook page)

Where: 28 El Merghany Street, beside Shawermer, the same street of McDonalds, Heliopolis


Cinnamon Cheesecake at Qahwa

Whether a cheesecake person or not, you will fall for it head over heels. The name is a bit misleading because the dessert is much more than that, we are talking about cheesecake with a thick layer of cream cheese on top, and a sprinkle of cinnamon adding more flavor. Surprisingly it’s not as sweet as it sounds, as¬†the bitterness of the cheeses, combined with the¬†sweetness of the cake, and of the cream cheese frosting give it a pretty¬†balanced taste.

Where: Arkan Mall in 6th of October


Chocolate Heaven by The Batter Half & Co.

Everybody has been talking about their red velvet cake, along with their Red Velvet Konafa & Basboussa, skip them all to have their Chocolate Heaven. No wonder why it’s named Chocolate Heaven, It seriously is a cup from heaven, small bites of chocolate brownies, caramel sauce, and lots of melted chocolate, heated in the microwave for a minute, then finally served with vanilla ice cream.

Where: 17 Mohamed Mazhar Street, Zamalek.


Caramel √Čclairs by¬†Tortina

If you haven’t tried Tortina you really don’t know what you are missing, their¬†g√Ęteaux speak for themselves, the freshest ingredients in town with an authentic taste. Although all their g√Ęteaux¬†are to die for, their Caramel √Čclair takes √©clairs to a whole new level, we are talking about French standards in here. (Below photo is pretty close to Tortina’s Caramel √Čclairs by¬†houseandleisure.co.za)

Where: Zamalek, Maadi, Heliopolis & Arkan Mall in 6th of October.


Konafa Nabelsseya or Ghazal Beirut by Tamara

Their Konafa Nabelsseya -with cheese- is by far the closest to Palestenian Konafa originating from Nables -I can guarantee that as I tried the original made by a Palestinian guy. Cheese Konafa served hot; the cheese melts from the heat, giving the perfect opportunity¬†to drown it in syrup. Close your eyes, and enjoy every bit of it. (Photo courtesy: Tamara’s Facebook page)

But if you are not a fan of sweet & sour desserts, more of an ice cream person go for¬†a Ghazal Beirut. It’s mastic ice cream¬†surrounded by layers of sugar prepared in a way that’s similar to cotton candy in taste, but to Konafa in texture, tipped with pistachio sprinkles.

Where: City Stars & Tivoli Dome in 6th of October.
