When Kuwait does something well, it really does it outstandingly, and the beloved local concept Life with Cacao continues to prove this to be true. We have been lucky enough to have been blessed with five locations in Kuwait of this fine concept and happily a sixth is planned for Al Kout Mall soon. Something to look forward to! As they say, you can’t keep a good thing down, and so Life with Cacao has ventured forth across borders and expanded into both Qatar and KSA.
There is simply no end to the opulence of the interior design of the location in Doha’s Qatar Mall. The sweeping chandeliers are magnificent, hanging above tables around which are set an eclectic collection of mismatched chairs. Fancy frames surround the artworks featured on the stone block central pillar and the life blood of the business is emblazoned in a celebratory manner across the room. Familiar Life with Cacao phrases such as, “Fall in Love with Chocolate” and, “Like Diamonds Chocolate is Forever” fill the surface of the walls. The very essence of the concept idea was inspired by the founders’ love for chocolate, and that exact word “Life” is writ large in rich gold lettering, to remind us of that. Chocolate is life!
The herringboned hardwood floors are reminiscent of the finest of ballrooms and along an entire wall runs shelves heavy with hardback, vintage books which would belong in the best of Victorian England libraries. Where once families and friends would visit, reading to each other for hours on end, Life with Cacao also has an all-day café ambience, despite the very splendor in which you sit. In fact, it’s the absolutely palatial, old family-mansion-ess of it all that makes you want to stay all day, and feel a little decadently naughty, enjoying the experience.
Located on the ground floor of Qatar Mall, Life with Cacao is now considered by those in Doha, the place to be if you are keen on having a hearty breakfast, satisfying lunch, exceptional dinner or simply delving into mouthwatering desserts.
Great care is taken to ensure the freshest ingredients are sourced which are of the finest quality possible. Life with Cacao also invests in achieving the most delightful, world-class flavors by importing natural essentials to their menu recipes. These include the mouthwatering chocolate dishes that are enrobed in premium Swiss couvertures, which contain a high percentage of cocoa butter, Malagasy vanilla that is 100% natural and homemade ice cream again, made of completely natural ingredients. Even the heavenly hazelnut paste is created in house!
Of course, it is not just Qatar that is experiencing a new lease in chocolate life but also the residents of Riyadh. Saudi Arabia’s Al-Nakheel mall finally welcomed the Kuwaiti dessert and chocolate concept situating Life with Cacao on the ground floor, easily found as it is opposite to gate number two. The café allows Saudi nationals and visitors alike to experience the meaning of “Live Deliciously” as they at last get to enjoy this particularly exceptional taste of fine chocolate and homemade ice cream.
If there is one sure fire way to check out with incredible dishes on offer, the Life with Cacao website features the most beautiful food photography. Here you can read the vision of Life with Cacao: “Live deliciously and awaken your senses with Live with Cacao’s premium sweet taste.”
Some of the desserts are such intensely beautiful works of art, that represent years of perfecting the art of spinning sugar, molding chocolate and refining recipes to create these dishes that look almost too good to eat. One of the signature desserts, which features on the website homepage, is The Bird’s Nest which is a delicate chocolate nest, accompanied by an assortment of chocolate covered eggs with ice-cream filling. Exactly as claimed, “Life with Cacao’s special signature dishes…include a dash of creativity, pinch of luxury and smidgen of fantastical infusion of the most delicate flavors.”
No matter where you may find yourself; Kuwait, KSA or Qatar, we can proudly say that our cherished Kuwaiti concept welcomes you for breakfast, lunch or dinner. Everyone is invited to experience the joys of Life with Cacao!
