Eating vegan any time soon? Better save space for dessert! By the power of food science, everyone's favourite sweet treats are now available completely free of animal product. Got a hankering for that old caramel cheesecake? No problem. In love with chocolate but can't stand dairy? Easily solved. We've listed up four of Dubai's top restaurant dishes for the sweet-toothed everywhere to enjoy, guilt-free, risk-free. Here at Deliveroo being good to the Earth doesn't mean giving up on half the menu. Instead, it means protein-rich brownie, red velvet in a sea of cream and third-course satisfaction all around. Just look below.
1. The Paleo Brownie from Nourish Restaurant
Up first, a tough nut draped in hazel frosting. The Paleo Brownie from Nourish Restaurant is an eclectic mix of savoury and sweet, with a base of humble earthen flavours. Every bite of this delicious rectangle is testimony simply to good vegan food – sweet potato, pecan, date and hazelnut are the primary ingredients, and health is the number one priority. Who knew dessert could be so good for you? Load up on protein, fill that belly and enjoy a truly inventive vegan spin on dessert. It's got the same texture as its predecessor, it's got great taste and it's better for the planet. Praise be to all the culinary inventors in the world!
2. Salted Caramel Cheesecake at Poke and Co
Alright, enough with the healthy already. Dessert is a dish best served sweet - at least according to the folks down at Poke and Co. Their Salted Caramel Cheese Cake is a tangy pud that combos flavours and tastes galore. The sweetness of the caramel compliments the tang of the cream cheese, the added salty kick goes great with its biscuit base and - best of all - it's completely vegan! Have one of Poke and Co's Organic Cold Pressed Juices or a deliciously fruity Smoothie, if you must have some Hawaiian health, too - but do not miss out on this indulgent salted-caramel treat.
3. SS Orange Polenta Cake with Saffron & Orange Blossom at Sesame
The guys and girls at Sesame are dedicated to putting nutritious, local food on your plate. All their dishes are crafted from the ground up with seasonal, organic crops and every meal is an absolute delight. Take the SS Orange Polenta Cake with Saffron & Orange Blossom, for example: a mouthful in every sense of the word. A delicate slice of this good vegan dessert is both a wonderful palate cleanser and great afternoon snack. The cake is light, the flavours wonderfully pastel and the sweetness subtle on the tongue. Fruity. Modest. Full of yum.
4. The Red Velvet Cup by Govindas
Vegan cake, vegan cheese, love and care in a cup. Govindas give the people what they want. Our final dessert is their Red Velvet Cup, the wonderfully tasty consequence of a slice of the titular cake and cream cheese frosting. It's messy, it's colourful, it's whipped. And yet - 'decanted' into that cup - it proves to be a classy taste of vegan heaven.
