Restaurant of the week: Tamba (The Indecent Proposal)
The Bollywood in me absolutely loves the dramatic-filmy stories attached to the desserts at Abu Dhabi's favourite, Tamba, located at the Hub, World Trade Centre Mall. The tale of the Tamba desserts has captivated diners across the Capital, leaving guests with a lasting, sweet impression.
Following on from the previous finale of the restaurant’s dessert story, The Break Up, the Indecent Proposal provides a spellbound taste of life after heartbreak, where confidence is boosted and independence is claimed. This impressive, unique and attention-grabbing dessert boasts Rose Granita, topped with a refreshing Lemon Sorbet Sphere, and finished with Ruby Red Raspberry Pearls. Just like its namesake, the Indecent Proposal may appear icy at first, but is ultimately irresistible to all. I absolutely recommend it and love the series of stories attached to the desserts.
The Lotus dessert trend has taken over the UAE and how, be that lotus pancakes, lotus truffles, lotus milkshakes or lotus cupcakes.
Here is a simple way you can get yourself a glass full of Lotus Milkshake at home though. You will need:
3 scoops Vanilla Ice Cream
2 biscuits Lotus Biscoff
1 cup milk
1 tablespoon Lotus Biscoff Spread
1 teaspoon sugar
Combine Lotus Biscoff biscuits and spread, milk and vanilla ice-cream in a blender container. Cover. Blend until smooth, scraping down sides of a blender if needed. Serve and enjoy!
