We headed for a girl’s day out and chanced to drop into the cutest little Dessert Cafe on Jumeriah Road by the name of Boombalambuz Cafe. Jumeriah Beach Road is one of our favourite haunts during the day with the beach on one side and rows of choicest Cafes on the other. Bright summer day..carefree girls..shakes and ice cream..match made in heaven!!
What’s in a name
With such a catchy name, the cafe meaning ‘frozen ice’ hailing from Azerbaijan promises to bring you a delectable range of Freak shakes, Mojitos, Ice creams, Ice teas and coffees. The service is pretty quick and you can choose to dine-in, take away or order for delivery online as well. The cafe has a cozy vibe with a grey brick wall, well lit interiors and a bushy green plant on every table top making for simplistic interiors. The staff is courteous and amicable so that helps.
Get Set Gobble
Who doesn’t love a decadent shake?! Freak shakes are definitely a rage at the moment and we were only too delighted to spot these on the menu. The cafe has a bunch of interesting options like Berry meringue, Donut caramel, Pistachio Baklava, Banana & Dates, Chocolate brownie and more with each one promising an unusually delicious flavour combination.
We spotted the Nutella & Pretzel shake on their menu and were absolutely itching to try it out. This velvety and thick shake was an absolute winner with a dose of chocolate inside and salty pretzels embellished on top. It is indeed one of the most beautiful shakes we have ever seen. In every sip we were overwhelmed by the beautiful balance of creamy chocolate contrasted by the salty pretzels and peanuts on top. Don’t miss the generous dollop of whipped cream on top or the extra helping of pretzels drizzled with chocolate on the side.
Next we picked the Strawberry Cheesecake and it was everything a cheesecake lover would wish for. Talk about getting a shake topped with a cake! The perfect blend of strawberries and cream, the milkshake is essentially a crowd pleaser. Not only does it look tempting but tastes absolutely fabulous too.
Who can pass up a bowl of ice cream on a sunny day?! The Watermelon ice cream is a whole new level of deliciousness with scoops of cold watermelon and ice cream served in a watermelon bowl topped with peanuts. This scrumptious fruity flavour certainly hit the right spots.
Take our word for how insanely good they are and head here for guilty sweet pleasures. We’ve already picked out items from their menu to try on our next visit here!
