February 2019 Update:
I’m not sure since when, but Muncherie is not available for cake & dessert deliveries in the UAE anymore. Absolutely no need to worry though. Satisfy your vegan dessert & cake fixes at One Cafe by Life n’ One or Menagerie or order from Elly’s treats by Eliane, rawkure or the healthypatisserie (to only list a few alternatives).
Looks like I’m just eating cake recently, right? Well, this one I had wanted to try for such a long time and the only thing I regret about it now is not having done it earlier! Muncherie offers vegan cakes & desserts for online orders or pick up in a few outlets around town in Dubai & Abu Dhabi. It’s a local brand producing vegan treats, which are organic, gluten-free and mostly raw as well!
If you live in Dubai you have probably walked past their Kale Chips or Almond Mylks at Spinneys, Waitrose, the Ripe Market or Jones the Grocer (all three are amazing grocery stores which I can fully recommend if you’re not on a budget and looking for imported vegan treats and organic produce). They have just recently added their own Coconut Yoghurt and small desserts to their assortment, which can be bought at the Organic Foods and Café in Business Bay. If you’d like a sample of their cakes and buy directly from Muncherie without ordering online why not stop by the Ripe Market on Fridays at Zabeel Park?
I actually came across Muncherie on Instagram where I spotted their awesome looking raw vegan cakes. To order you simply e-mail / call them and they will deliver your cake. At the moment there are a few cakes available such as the Blueberry and Acai Cheesecake or the Snickers Cake. All of them sound and look more than delicious. Since I was a little late with my order (try to order at least 36 hours ahead) I visited Milk & Honey on the Palm instead, where they had two cakes from Muncherie available. The chocolate loving part of me spotted the raw vegan & gluten-free Nutella Tart and knew that was the right one to go for. I paid 295 AED (instead of 250 AED when you order online) and took it home with me. According to their website it’s made out of hazelnuts, raw cocoa, coconut oil, raw vanilla powder, agar agar, date syrup and himalayan salt. It has a super-rich chocolate taste and smooth texture on a thin nut base and is decorated with nuts. It was so satisfying that I could only eat a tiny piece every single time and actually had to freeze it after a couple of days to ensure it wouldn’t go bad since I couldn’t finish it (who could finish a cake by him-/herself anyways?). But in fact freezing it and then enjoying it slightly frozen afterwards made it even a little bit better 🙂
I definitely have to try Muncherie’s other cakes and the coconut yogurt (I’ve heard the nut mylks are amazing too though) but I felt like sharing this cake with everyone as soon as possible and before the holidays in case anyone is still looking for a special dessert! Looking forward to hear about your favorite picks from Muncherie in Dubai!
