At the end of a good hearty meal, sometimes you’d rather skip dessert or opt for ‘something light’. If you’re one of those people, we’re afraid we can’t help you. These desserts are not to be skipped. It would be wrong on so many levels to do so. They are indulgent, attention- seeking and deserve to be celebrated.
Creamy, gooey, banana goodness in a bowl. How could we resist? We can have this dessert every day of the year and never get bored of it.
Magnolia Bakery is located at the first floor of Al-Hamra Luxury Center and at Levels Complex, Mahboula. Follow them on Twitter and Instagram. Please call 2227 0285 for delivery inquiries or catering information.
Ridley’s Burger’s ‘The Gamble’
We called it the GAH!-mble. That’s the sound you’ll make when you taste it. Fudge, Nutella laden with strawberries. This one’s always a winner.
Le Notre’s Caramel Popcorn Ice Cream
A vision of sugar, spice and everything nice, the Caramel Pop Corn Ice Cream is an imaginative dessert that delivers on both flavor and whimsy. What’s not to like? Popcorn? Good. Caramel? Good! Ice cream with caramel and popcorn? GREAT!

If you are a fan of the fabulous pecan, this is a must try. Delightful nutty goodness and flaky melt-in-your-mouth pastry held together in a sticky tart, the perfect way to end a meal, or with a gorgeous coffee in the afternoon.
A classic brownie might seem boring. But when said brownie batter is mixed in with perfect swirls of peanut butter, the world magically becomes a better place. In fact, these brownies can actually achieve world peace.
This simple milk pudding becomes not to simple when Nutella gets involved. Not only have the good people at Amami perfected the simple Panna Cotta, the Nutella addition to this glorious pudding takes it to the next level.
Pizzeria Amami is located on the Mezzanine floor of Symphony Mall. For reservations, take-aways or more information call the manager, Ms. Francesca Monacelli on 2577 0733, or you can follow them on Facebook or Instagram.
Once upon a time, the greatest invention the world ever received was the Banoffee Pie. Now imagine those flavors in the form of the fluffiest pancakes you could ever ask for. It’s the stuff that dreams are made of!
Cheesecake is never a bad idea. At Buffalos, they’ve taken the American classic and perfected it by wrapping it up in a flaky tortilla that is deep fried and then topped off with ice cream and strawberry syrup. We love fried everything, so this technique earns top marks in our book.

This one sounds super weird, but it’s good weird. Trust us. We thought that their chocolate molten cakes were addictive, but this rendition with sticky toffee and aromatic pistachio literally makes tasting this cake a wild experience.
