La Farine is my favorite afternoon tea experience in Dubai so far, given my limited Dubai foodventures.
It’s a nice mix of an airy, contemporary ambiance, welcoming staff and food that looks as good as it tastes.
We opted for the set afternoon tea menu and the quantity of food was rather overwhelming, with its five courses starting with fresh berries, then the tea tray with a selection of sweet and savory items including cakes, sandwiches, brownies and macaroons, followed by quiches, scones and lastly tea cakes.
Among the sweet items, red velvet stood out the most with its moist and light texture. In savory items, I am going to pick cucumber sandwich as my top pick.
At the bottom of the list is the weal bacon and mushroom quiche. Given the quantity of food, we took-out the tea cakes and sweets and the staff was nice enough to let us.
