Calling all chocolate lovers – you’re in for a treat…

World food days are on the rise, and the latest one is definitely one we can get on board with. The chocoholic’s dream day takes place on Sunday July 7 and some great Dubai restaurants are marking it with some delicious offers.

Here’s where to celebrate World Chocolate Day in Dubai.

Puerto 99

Puerto 99 have added a new dessert to their menu, just in time for World Chocolate Day. The Chocolate Sphere is more of a work of art than a pudding: Hot coffee sauce is poured over the hard chocolate shell, which melts to reveal a mocha shortcake topped with seasonal berries.

 

Puerto 99, Bluewaters Island, Dubai, daily 12pm to 3am, Chocolate Sphere Dhs77. Tel: (04) 557 6627. puerto99.ae

French restaurants Publique in Madinat Jumeirah and Bistro Des Arts in Dubai Marina will both be offering a special chocolate fondue to mark World Chocolate Day in Dubai. But it won’t just be available on July 7, you’ll be able to tuck into the tasty treat from July 4 to 7. It’s priced at Dhs45 per person, with a minimum of two people sharing required.

Hilton Hotels & Resorts

Hilton Hotels & Resorts will be serving their original recipe brownie across two Dubai locations on Sunday. First created in 1983, the brownie came about when the wife of the owner of Palmer House Hilton challenged the hotel’s pastry chefs to invent a dessert that could be easily transported. You’ll be able to get their recreation at Ribs and Brews, Hilton Dubai Al Habtoor City and Axis Lobby Lounge at Hilton Dubai Jumeirah.
