Harper’s Bazaar is a globally renowned title that exemplifies sophistication, fashion and trend-setting couture. This leading fashion publication has chosen Dubai as the location for its first-ever café; a venue designed to be an ever-changing social space that serves up vibrant food, fashion and art in celebration of the heritage and style of the magazine.
Designed to be a living embodiment of the iconic fashion magazine, the Harper’s Bazaar Café will be a sophisticated and immersive experience, capturing the chic and provocative elegance that defines the brand. The distinctive outlet that is set to become a firm favorite with the UAE’s in-crowd will feature a mix of different chair sizes and types; dining, lounge, sculpted-back and sofa, to give an intimate, personal ambience.
Epitomising the sense of luxury, the designer outlet will offer an extensive menu of firm favourite food and beverages, as well as more exotic fare that highlight the magazine’s contemporary and cosmopolitan traditions.
From their Salad section we had the chance to have the Quinoa Salad which was made of broccoli, asparagus, rocket leaves, feta and cherry tomatoes. Whether you love quinoa or not, this tasty simple, no fuss salad will power you up while keeping in mind that you are fit to look like one of the cover models.
From the Light Bites which were perfect for sharing we had:
Beetroot Hummus – BEST HUMMUS EVER! And so healthy too 🙂 Absolutely loved the color and how it was presented. I could never tell it had beetroot of it was not a pinkish purplish shade. Served with vegetable crudite, rice and quinoa crackers, this was a treat to the stomach as much as it was to the eyes.
Watermelon, Goat’s Cheese, Hazelnuts, Basil, Hawaiian Black Salt – This entire dish and combination of ingredients was so good, my sister gulped down all of it before i could even finish taking pictures of the rest of the food. I literally got to have only one piece of watermelon. I love goat’s cheese and the one in this dish was the finest I had ever had!
From their Fall / Winter Collection I had the Zucchini Tart which was filled with the most delectable filling of Capsicum, Sweet Potato, Feta Cheese and Pesto. The zucchini slices are only on the top. For the first time I did not give the fries on the side more attention than the dish itself. The filling in this puff pasty was Impeccable!!! It was so good i had to force myself to finish it even though i was so full with the rest of the dishes.
Eggplant Bruschetta – Very unique and quite different, for those who love eggplant, this moutabbel like bruschetta was really good.
For my drinks i had the Hazel Caramel Mocha Frappe which was to die for! Best i have ever had. Even better than the frappucino of a certain brand i like 🙂 The taste of every ingredient was like happiness to the soul.
Of course I had to have my Frappe with Huda Beauty 🙂 How could I possibly say no to her!
We skipped the dessert, as delicious looking as it was, and had the pancakes instead. Definitely one of the fluffiest and mouth watering pancakes I have ever had served with a sweet maple syrup. Pretty light too!
They also have a Gluten Free section wherein the dishes are 500 calories or less so that’s good news for all you fashionistas or those who have allergies.
