After breaking our fasts during summer, we’re pretty drained from the fried galore that we are all guilty of devouring. Needless to say, we all crave a sweet fix to raise our sugar levels and the pastry perfectionists at Amari Dhaka have created a dessert selection for everyone, starting from the chocolate lovers to those that enjoy the berry bliss.

A true taste of the Middle East; the Layali Lubnan is a journey on your spoon. The top layer of fluffy whipped cream reveals a melt in your mouth pudding. The bites of raisin and nuts add texture along with a burst of the unique Arabian essence.
Orbat Fresh Coconut BilKishta
Call me a frantic for filo, but there is nothing like breaking into a crunchy filo pastry. The BilKishta reveals a creamy centre of the crunchy pastry. Hints of rose water and pistachio make this dessert the masterpiece that is served in a colour palette served with an assortment of colourful sauces.
Blueberry and Yoghurt Cheesecake
If you’re seeking a more refreshing dessert, the cheesecake is ideal. The yoghurt base is cool and refreshing with tangy ribbons of blueberry. The chocolate crust adds a hint of sweetness to tingle the senses.
Warm Chocolate, Date and Nut Soufflé
The namesake speaks for itself; this dessert is a plate of comfort. You’ll be spooning the gooey centre as it runs down your lips. The light note of date complements the nuttiness and the slight bitterness of the dark chocolate.
