LOVE DOUGHNUTS – ABU DHABI

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

One of the things I want to see more in the UAE is more shops specializing in sweets, more specifically DONUTS. I found “Love Doughnuts” through Instagram and was very lucky to know they have a pop up shop at Ripe Market. The packaging is well thought off, with doughnuts stacked on top of each other in circle shaped boxes. While the doughnuts are worth trying they are overpriced. Personally, I am not a fan of custard filled doughnuts but they impressed me. The Oreo doughnut was my favorite. Love Doughnuts have a variety of creative doughnuts to savor from. Overall, the doughnuts are very well executed, soft and tasty.

RIPE MARKET – DUBAI

…السلام عليكم ورحمة الله وبركاته

Every Friday morning Ripe will host their market from 9:00 AM till 2:00 PM at Zaabeel Park (Gate 1). You will find fresh organic fruits, vegetables, local food stalls, mini version of restaurants, crafts, fun activities for the kids, live music and many more! ATM machines are available this year too. The majority of the places have reasonable pricing. There are different types of seating areas and since it is in a park it would be a fun picnic experience. I would recommend you visit the Ripe Market early as it gets VERY crowded and it would be difficult to find a parking spot (We parked in the sand pit across Gate 1!). You should definitely check this place out as it is only for a period of time. There is a clear improvement from last year.

Lemonade (10 DHS each) :
Fresh sour but sweet, the perfect balance of a good lemonade.
