    This Ramadan, La Poire is serving some of the best creative desserts, among them happens to be the date & caramel basbousa, with the family size costing 250LE, while a one-person cup is 20LE. Give La Poire a call on 19515.

    Petits Choux aux Dates at Salé Sucré:

    Sounds fancy, huh? This delightful dessert is a combination of date sponge cake, choux balls, pastry cream, dates, and caramel (180LE). We find this one an upgrade to Salé Sucré’s heavenly classic profiteroles. Order it by calling 19632.
