To celebrate Easter Sunday in Dubai, my friend and I headed to At.mosphere at the top of Burj Khalifa – the tallest tower in the world and 442m above the city.
Drinks in hand – Luc Belaire Rose (me) and golden apple fizzy juice (my friend) – we toasted to Easter and also our mini break, literally on top of the world.
Starting with strawberries and cream…
Next up we had a choice of mains (which I’ve never had as part of an afternoon tea before!): either roast lamb or scallops with pasta. In honor of Easter, I selected the roast lamb, but then quickly swapped to the scallops when I saw the size of the tiered cake plates arriving at the other tables!
It was a wise move – the scallops were delicious.
"This sumptuous blend of red tea with malty nuts and warm spices reunites rare and precious flavours to create an unforgettable cup of sublime sweetness"
Then the ‘piece de resistence’ – the sweet selection arrived…
We had three patissere layers: the bottom was loaf cake and biscuits – actually very underwhelming and the only let down of the whole meal – dry and unappealing.
