No meal will be completed without finishing it strong with a sugary, creamy, feeling big time guilty dessert. Speaking of sugar rush, if you observe Saudis eating desserts you might think they will be running all over the place from that energy that was generated by the amount of sugar in their bodies. However, what Saudis experience is the total opposite, an over dose effect that will knock the hell out of them.
In some societies, desserts are considered as a privilege after a good meal… it is a nice thing to have, but in Saudi it is mandatory; you may hear the head of the family asking with full confidence after finishing his meal … So what’s for dessert?
With the tsunami movement of people taking photos of their food wherever they go, especially photos of desserts, restaurants became more focus on how to come up with desserts that attract those youngsters … you will find red velvet cakes filled with chocolate mousse with an ice cream vanilla hidden in it … wrapped with brown sugar cinnamon crepe … drizzled all over the plate by the one and only Nutella® chocolate and topping it off with a heavy load of whip cream and cherry on the top … all that just to be picture worthy!
