I was craving IKEAs plant balls and wanted to order some online, but the gravy that goes with them was sold out in the online store, so I decided to take the metro to the new IKEA at Festival Plaza in Jebel Ali and see if they had the gravy (and maybe pick up some Swedish candy too).
It was 100ºF+ outside, but IKEA isn’t that far from the metro station, so I decided to walk. That was a stupid decision, because the short walk felt like 7 years in the desert and when I finally walked into Festival Plaza, I was soaked in sweat. When my eye caught the Be.k sign I thought for a moment that it might be a mirage, but luckily, it wasn’t. It was for real. A Japanese dessert cafe right when you need it the most!
I’ve previously tried Be.k in Phnom Penh and they have the most delicious Japanese desserts, including a great selection of kakigori (Japanese shaved ice). Had the one with melon, and it was delicious. So refreshing with the melon balls and the kakigori together, and of course a lot of condensed milk drizzled on top.
