5 ENTREPRISES LOCALES POUR VOS ENVIES SUCRÉES

If there is one thing that North Africans and Middle Easterners love, it is desserts. We find that, any time is a good time to take a tea break accompanied by pastries. Even if we can't share these sweet moments with our entourage, it doesn't mean we can't treat ourselves. And at the same time, you support a small business. Here are our 5 suggestions of where you can satisfy your sweet desires!


La Caravane Gourmande
We often talk about her because we love what she does. Maha recently started her career as a caterer, sharing her culture and passion for food. She likes to revisit traditional Moroccan dishes and desserts. For the holiday season, she presents to us the m'hencha, this dessert in the shape of a rolled serpentine. It's hard to decide between the traditional version with almonds, honey, and orange peel or with blond chocolate and pistachios. Well, why not choose both!

You can order a m'hencha during the Mini Souk here.

Café Chez Téta
A few months after Café Chez Téta opened, it became a must when you are in the area. The charming café offers Lebanese specialties such as manoushé, fattoush salad, and tabbouleh. As a coffee lover, you come especially to try the cardamom flavored coffee. To accompany our hot drink, we opt for one of the homemade desserts: caroube cake, sfouf, and halva brownie.

''My Lebanese grandmother’s cooking has always been a source of comfort. The word Téta means “grandmother” in Lebanese. The name of our café honors the childhood memories associated with the warm and friendly welcome from my grandmother.''

Unicone MTL
This summer, this creamery was making the buzz in Montreal. When we went there, we quickly understand the craze. The two sisters, Sarah and Yasmine, are proposing a trip full of flavors. Inspired by the gastronomic richness of different cultures, they create an interesting variety of ice cream flavors. Kulfi with Saffron and pistachios, Speculoos, gazelle horn... it feels like we were going elsewhere every time!

For the festive season, they offer yule logs with different flavors. You can choose between De Paris à Bombay (orange white chocolate mousse and cardamom) and the Baklava (pieces of baklava, pistachios from Iran and flavored with rose water from Lebanon). Of course, I love the baklava log!

To order yours, it's here.

Kichou's Cake
Dihia likes to test recipes and make us drool over her creations. We approve because we have tested her pastries several times, like during our Late Afternoon Tea, where she prepared Algerian almond pastries. She can design personalized pastries for any kind of occasion.

Bouza 
Ice cream can be enjoyed regardless of the season. Bouza Creamery offers several flavors including achta, a typical Middle Eastern orange blossom cream. We also find pistachio, hazelnut, and rose flavors. You can also buy an ice cream cake. We recommend that you try the achta, it's quite a delicious and unique taste!
