Chocoholics Rejoice! Eataly Celebrates the Joy of Cocoa in the UAE

The allure of this world renowned confection knows no bounds, and in celebration of some of the finest names in the industry which include Domori and Venchi, Eataly at The Dubai Mall will be showcasing a special menu with chocolate in every dish, from starters to desserts.

Indulge in a creamy Burrata filled with Venchi dark chocolate to begin before moving on to the unusual and enticing salmon cannoli, filled with goat’s cheese, capers and herbs. For carb lovers, the chocolate spaghetti with prawns and green beans is a whimsical spin on traditional Italian flavours, as is the gorgonzola pizza, with its chocolate base and toppings of mascarpone and pears.

As you would expect, desserts reign supreme, with our personal favourite being the ricotta calzone with Venchi chocolate and whipped cream – so lush! Book a table and experience it for yourself before the festivities end. This is a definite must-try for epicureans!

INFO: 31 May-17 June, Sun-Wed 9am-11.30pm, Thu-Sat 9am-12midnight, Lower Ground Level, The Dubai Mall, 800 328259, www.eataly.ae
