I've been hearing great stories about PappaRoti Cafe at Dubai Mall week after week. Most of my friends went crazy for some time, while I ignored all the fuss! The cafe is just too crowded, too noisy, definitely not my ideal coffee shop.
I decided to give it a try when a friend told me that there's a less-crowded branch at Deira City Centre. A PappaRoti shop where I won't fight for a seat? hmmm sounds good to me! So, after a year, I finally gave in to the PappaRoti craze!
Being first-timers, Ed and I spent some time choosing from the menu.

|Bun and Cold Drink Combo|
|11 AED for a bun? This bun must be something special!|
|And an option to spruce up the bun with an additional flavored syrup drizzled on top.|
We opted to have it simple, no toppings.
I ordered a combo of milk tea and bun.
|Ed had a hot chocolate and bun... and ordered another after he finished his first serving!|
Now I know why everyone went crazy over this simple-looking bun!
It is freshly baked with an aroma that tickled my senses.
|There's something special within: a slightly salty, buttery filling, |
that compliments the creamy fluffy bun!
A light snack for 2 at 67AED is quite expensive.
But I fell in love... so hard that I would exchange any meal for a bun and tea at PappaRoti!
