Before you hit the streets looking for sweets, check out my list of Jeddah’s nine most tempting desserts.
An all-time favorite, this soufflé is rich in flavor and has a delicious fluffy texture. It is served hot and topped with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream. Chocolate and vanilla are the two flavor options. This dessert is the perfect introduction to the world of soufflés.
Chilli’s: Molten Chocolate Cake
This dessert is one of the most famous in Jeddah and the world. It gets its name from the molten chocolate center. The cake is topped vanilla ice cream and glazed with a thin chocolate shell.
Helen’s Kitchen: Galaxy Cake
With a moist chocolate sponge cake topped with a thick creamy layer of galaxy mousse, it is considered to be the signature dessert of Helen’s Kitchen. One great thing about this dessert is that it comes in three sizes.
The Cheesecake Factory: Ultimate Red Velvet Cheesecake
This mouthwatering dessert consists of two juicy layers of red velvet cake separated by fluffy and light layers of creamy cheese, which also adorns the cake as frosting. One slice is perfect for two people.
Pizza Lenuo: Lenuotella
The creatively named dessert with its crispy dough stuffed with melted tahina is made even more irresistible with the generous spread of Nutella on top.
Anoosh: Chocolate Chip Cookies
The cookies at Anoosh have crispy edges and soft and chewy centers. With the right amount of chocolate chips and sweetness, these cookies are one of the best in Jeddah.
Wakame Lounge: Pavlova
This light and fruity dessert is filled with soft cream, topped with kiwi fruit and comes with a dazzle of strawberry syrup. The crunchy base gives it an appealing consistency.
Lily’s Bakery: Oreo Cake Pop
These delightful cake pops taste as good as they look. These decorative bites of ake dipped in chocolate are more than just cake on a stick.
Gold Sushi: Tempura Cheesecake
Deep fried cheesecake, crunchy on the outside and melted sweetness inside, served with vanilla ice cream and strawberry sauce. Amazing, but heavy.
