Scoopi Café is a Dubai-based Gourmet ice cream cafe and chocolatier. It’s the creation of ZUBIN DOSHI , in his quest to bring gourmet ice cream and hand crafted chocolates to the UAE. Scoopi created unique flavours like MEDJOOL DATE and the exclusive BLACK DIAMOND. The BLACK DIAMOND is the world’s most expensive dessert which is a Madagascar vanilla ice cream flavored with Iranian saffron and Italian black truffles, garnished with 23 carat edible gold and served in a rare bowl with a gold spoon.
Where: Scoopi, Jumeria Beach Road.
– Italian Nutella (Single Scoop) with chocolate flakes and peanuts (in an edible chocolate cup)
– European Chocolate with m&m’s (chocolate waffle cone)
– Belgian Waffle with Madagascar Vanilla ice cream, Italian Nutella ice cream and oreo shavings.
What we loved: How natural and fresh all the ice-creams were and the fact that they were made right in front of us with liquid nitrogen, which was pretty cool. We each tasted ALMOST every ice-cream before actually ordering it, and the staff was super friendly and didn’t get annoyed! Unlike many other ice-cream places they have waffles with 2 ice-cream scoop’s of your choice! Additionally, They freshly make chocolate everyday!! We got to try a lot of different varieties of chocolate. Our favorite’s were the hazelnut, milk and dark chocolate ones.
What we didn’t like as much: One of us didn’t really like the ”Italian Nutella” ice-cream, where as the other 2 loved it! So it really depends on taste and your love for nutella!! There were 2 tables with 4 high stools each. The seating could have been more spacious.
Ambiance: The interiors are casual and cozy, there’s no fuss about the place just great quality ice-cream.
What we recommend:
– Belgian Waffle ( Try this with the Madagascar Vanilla and Italian Nutella )
More on Scoopi: Many different (unique) varieties of ice-creams. They had about 4 varieties of chocolate, that made it so difficult to choose from. Scoopi has come up with International Sundaes like the Bananas Foster and Cherries Jubilee. We love it’s location, because it’s really easy to spot, and there is loads of parking on either sides. Also, if you don’t want to get out of your car, they not only get it to your car, they also let you taste how many ever flavors you wish to!
