Coco Chanel's favourite, Angelina, opens in Dubai
Parisian tearoom boutique Angelina, originally launched in 1903, will open this month in Dubai Mall’s Fashion Avenue.
Angelina serves a range of bespoke pastries, macarons and chocolates along with a wide range of teas. Its most iconic signature dishes are : the ‘Mont- Blanc’, a cake made up of meringue, light whipped cream and chestnut cream vermicelle and their famous ‘Chocolat Chaud L’Africain’, rich, old-fashioned hot chocolate together with a small pot of whipped cream.
Along with sweet bites you can also enjoy a selection of snacks, large salads and mains including ‘Tartare De Boeuf Au Couteau Facon Angelina’ Hand Cut Beef Tartar, ‘ Filet De Bar’ Fillet of Seabass or ‘Ravioli A La Truffle’ Truffle Ravioli.
The boutique also offers gifts including hot chocolate, teas, cakes, biscuits, fruit preserves and honey along with china tea sets, all packaged in beautifully branded boxes.
Created by Antoine Rumpelmayer 110 years ago, the Rue de Rivoli location rapidly grew to fame, becoming one of the most sought-after destinations of the Parisian aristocracy. In its time Angelina has played host to an extensive list of high profile celebrities including none other than Coco Chanel, who would always be seated at table #10 and was
reportedly a daily customer enjoying their signature hot chocolate.
