One cannot miss “Angelina” while passing by the Fashion Avenue at Dubai Mall. But not many know the story behind how it became one of the most famous tearoom boutique in the world.
Antoine Rumpelmayer opened the first Angelina Tearoom at Rue de Rivoli, Paris in 1903. He named it in the honor of his daughter-in-law, Angeline Rumpelmayer. The establishment rapidly rose to fame and became a luxury brand for the Parisian aristocracy. Generation after generation, the elegant patisserie has maintained its spirit and reputation. Celebrities such as Proust, Coco Chanel and the fashion designers have crossed paths in the tearoom’s well-appointed salons.
Here is why you will like it?
Angelina’s menus feature a host of dishes that are perfectly suited for elegant dining from breakfast, brunch, lunch and dinner. The creamy pan fried brioche French toast with vanilla and cinnamon provides the ideal start to the day, while a range of freshly mixed salads, soups, sandwiches, charcuterie, grilled fish, and crispy darphin potato cakes make for the perfect lunch or dinner. Key highlights include the Feta and Zucchini Quiche, Mango Avocado Tartar, tossed in a ginger spiced lemon mayonnaise, Chicken Tarragon accompanied with a side helping of creamy mashed potatoes and velvety tarragon cream, as well as the Vegetable Risotto flavoured with fragrant basil leaves.
I visited Angelina for lunch and here are my top picks:
Salad Tuleries: Duo of carrots, beetroots, asparagus, red & black radish, soft cheese on toast. Highly recommended!!
Vegetarian Risotto flavoured with Basil : Must not miss for Vegetarians
Signature Dessert: LeMont Blanc (Mont-Blanc pastry), the manager told me that this recipe was made over 100 years ago. Don’t forget to sip on the hot chocolate “L’Africain” along with it
Carmin : Hazelnut biscut, light vanilla, raspberry confit with Honey, Simply Delicious!
