Summer is here and if you’re scouting for places to grab a chilled drink, here’s something. The Sakura tree landed in Dubai at Ishiya, a one of a kind Japanese cafe and restaurant located at Dubai Mall for the first time outside Japan. The cafe is known to serve delicious food along with some of the best smoothies. Well, the issue however is that their smoothies are too pretty to be gulped down! Read on and you’ll know what we’re talking about.
The food artists at Ishiya create food that literally look straight out of a canvas. Smoothies here are anything bur ordinary. It’s not the drink that you’d gurgle down after a yoga class or just while you’re passing by the cafe. This one’s got art, flavour and loads of Insta moments you wouldn’t want to miss.
Firstly, the smoothies are created by people who literally draw inside a tall glass. Only that they use juice syrups, juices, and squeeze tubes to make patterns. And, you gotta trust us when we say watching them create this itself is just so satisfying.
The cafe literally feeds the eyes and the stomach and it only makes it harder for guests to destroy pieces of art that get created in a jiffy. And, it wouldn’t do justice even if you immortalized them in a zillion photographs- trust us! But you gotta demolish those goblets of gorgeous juices so your palette can enjoy a party too.
And, the artwork is not restricted to their smoothies alone. Even the cafe’s latte gets a stunning art makeover. See for yourself below!
Smoothies aside, the cafe has a full-fledged menu serving hearty breakfasts, sandwiches, sushi, pasta, bento box, and much more. Don’t leave without trying their world-famous Shiroi Koibito white chocolate sandwich cookies, which also make for great souvenirs. The bite-sized moreish cookies and the elegant fruit cocktails along with an arty sakura latte are just the perfect way to end your meal on a high note.
