Happiness in a bite with Loqmato!
We were invited to try the Turkish variation of the popular Arabic dessert Lugaimat called Lokma and went during a weekday. We had heard great reviews from our friends and were super excited to try it out for ourselves.
This is the first franchise located in the lower ground floor food court at Dubai Mall. The outlet had bright yellow theme that is hard to miss out and instantly uplifts your mood. Also, you can watch your Lokmas being made from scratch till they are ready to be eaten.

Chocolate: A delight for all the chocoholics in town. Crisp lokmas injected with dark chocolate and then topped with milk chocolate sauce and almond shavings. It is known to be one of their best seller and now our favorite was well.
Cheese: This was highly recommended by our friends and we thought it would be a great balance for the overdose of sweetness. Needless to say, it was a total hit for us. The cheese topped with honey and sesame seeds were another delicious combination. Definitely recommended!
Turkish Tea: This was your regular strong black tea which is a perfect companion for those sweet lokmas.

Feed your #Pistachio [AED 34] obsession 🙆🏻♀️ with @loqmatodubai in #TheDubaiMall! #NotSponsored (Courtesy @stranded.foodie). We 👭 also have some insider info that there will be new additions to the menu involving potatoes so for all those curious #foodies, let's go check it out! #LongWeekendPlans
Pistachio [AED 34]: They have recently launched this flavor and withour latest obession we could not stop ourselves from purchasing one. The lokmas are stuffed with chocolate sauce and then topped with pistachio sauce and crushed pistachios. We would have preferred the lokmas being injected with the pistachio sauce as well since it would add more flavour, rather than just use it as a topping.
White Chocolate [AED 34]: Another flavor that would appease the chocolate lovers. Lokmas were injected with cream and layered with white chocolate sauce and oreo crumbs.
Lotus Caramel Ice-cream [AED 19]: Vanilla ice-cream doused with special caramel sauce imported from Turkey and garnished with Lokma on the top. All the caramel lovers will have a blast with this one.
The staff were super friendly and provided great hospitality along with the Owner himself who explained all the flavors and something new which was coming up on the menu too.
We felt the prices were slightly steep but there is no harm in indulging once in a while.
We shall be back for more of the chocolate and cheese lokmas.
