Last month me and my dining partner received an invitation to try out one of Dubai’s newest luxury ice cream concept – Rolling Cones at Hyatt Regency, Dubai Creek Heights. Rolling Cones is a premium concept in soft serve ice cream conceptualized by entrepreneurs Sunaina Khanna Harisinghani and Prateek Shah.
A first of its kind desert parlour Rolling cones offers extravagant ice cream and coffee concepts adorned with pure edible gold laced with delectable crunchies and sprinkles of gold dust. Dubai never fails to amuse and exhilarate us with its incredible offerings. Rolling cones is one of the newest line of luxury dining places that completely bowled us over. Who doesn’t like to have their coffee or ice cream laced in pure gold, anyways!
We tried The Rolling Luxury – a premium soft serve ice cream covered by pure edible gold in a delightful waffle cone laced with delectable crunchies and sprinkles of saffron. We followed that up with once upon a time – a playful waffle cone surrounded by cotton candy and a dash of diamonds and marshmallows.
What we completely enjoyed is the My Precious Ice cream platter which is a signature creation of the most exotic soft serve ice cream flavors on a selection of wafer cones , cups and rolls laced with pistachio sauce and lotus biscuit.
For the first time ever, we tried Coffee on an ice cream cone – Rolling Cones Coffee – which has both Cappucinno or Espresso served in a dark chocolate glazed premium waffle cone.
Coffee De Arabica – The coffee with gold flakes on it consisted of premium coffee sourced from far corners of the earth available in Cappuccino or latte varieties.
With exotic blends to choose from, Rolling Cones offers authentic taste and creamy texture of ice creams that bring new meaning to rich desserts. What we totally enjoyed and highly recommend on the menu is The Rolling Luxury and My Precious, a piece of art created for ice cream connoisseurs with most exotic soft serve ice cream flavors on a selection of wafer cones, cups and rolls laced with pistachio sauce and lotus biscuit crumbs.
In an exclusive interview with blogliterati.com, Sunaina Khanna Harisinghani, Managing Director of Rolling Cones, said, “We are extremely delighted to launch a concept as unique and innovative as Rolling Cones to the UAE. At the outlet, we offer a delicious spread of premium luxury ice creams and coffee to celebrate the season that embodies summer fun. A must try is the signature ice cream – The Rolling Luxury which is a premium soft serve ice cream covered with pure edible gold in a delightful waffle cone laced with scrumptious crunchies and sprinkles of saffron, available in Fior Di Pistachio Variegato, French Vanilla, Chocolate and Lotus Flavours”
According to Prateek Shah, Investor Partner of Rolling Cones “Dubai is all about gold – luxury, innovation and premium are words best suited to the region. Rolling Cones is about that and much more. Each dessert and drink is very selectively designed to appeal to the metropolis’ palate, and is a visual treat. When you come in to Rolling Cones for the first time, try the namesake Rolling Cones Coffee. It’s your regular fix of Cappuccino or Espresso served in a Dark Chocolate glazed premium Waffle cone.”
Rolling cones also introduced its Ramadan flavour – the Dates Jallab,last month. An all-new take on the original pure gold covered soft serve ice cream, The Rolling Luxury, Dates Jallab is a soft serve made with rose petals and dates that is wrapped in a pure gold film. The delectable dessert is available from sundown until 2:00am on weekdays and sundown until 3:00am on weekends.
Prateek Shah, Investor Partner of Rolling Cones said, “Our newest flavor, the Dates Jallab, is a traditionally Arabic combination of sweet dates with -mooth rose petals that is reminiscent of date kunafa or batheeth made in rose water and sweet syrup. It seemed befitting to give The Rolling Luxury, our flagship dessert, a new makeover for the season with respect to the holy month of Ramadan.”
Sunaina Khanna Harisinghani, Managing Director of Rolling Cones, adds, “Ice cream imparts smiles on the faces of both adults and children, and is easy to share and enjoy together, which is the message we are focusing on with the introduction of this new flavor.” The Dates Jallab is a limited-time only flavor available until the end of Ramadan.
