We’re in the last few days of epic burger chain, Black Tap’s limited edition S’mores CrazyShake. The shake includes ice-cream with a fluffy campfire marshmallow flavor, crisped s’mores, topped with whipped cream and Hershey’s Chocolate Syrup. Enjoy, but definitely do not tell your PT about it afterwards.
Black Tap, Yas Mall, Yas Island, until August 10, 11am to 11pm, Dhs62. Tel: (02) 446 5128
Monday, August 10
2. Start that day the healthy way, with some big brekkie energy
The Majlis Lobby Lounge’s entry into our Big Brekkie Adventures world tour, is a true taste of Rio. Acai bowls have exploded in popularity over the last few years, primarily because of their rare ability to straddle superfood status and downright deliciousness. The culinary wizards at Rosewood Abu Dhabi’s Majlis Lobby Lounge have put together their own interpretation of the Amazonian dish, which includes freshly cut mangoes and bananas, with a sprinkle of almond flakes.
Majlis Lobby Lounge, Rosewood Abu Dhabi, Next to The Galleria Al Maryah Island, 7am to 10.30am, Dhs65. Tel: (02) 813 5550. rosewoodhotels.com
3. Get another slice of the action: Sacci’s pizza and pint deal has been extended
True pizza connoisseurs know that Sacci’s pizza has something special. It’s authentic Napoletana pizza, made with dough prepared 48 hours in advance, scattered with the finest, most aromatic ingredients and then fire-baked in a wood oven. And you can sample it, along with a pint of Italian hops for just Dhs49 Monday to Wednesday.
