It’s almost 1,500 years ago that humans learned to produce Sugar and started using it to create candies and other sweet foods. Before the invention of Sugar, humans always used honey and fruits to please their taste buds, but Sugar turned the sweet eating tradition to another way around. What sweet source readily and unprocessed available to humans as honey and fruits was taking much time when they invented the Sugar. Due to this, Desserts were always meant for precious humans.
With time Humans utilised the Sugar for various drinks and Food, and it became addictive for humans, and despite many disadvantages, Humans are falling for this sweet drug. In an ode by Rachel (a poet), Sugar gets its clear identity and impression on Humans:
Oh, wonderful Sugar, from where comes your flavour?
It is your sweet taste that I long to savour.
How are your crystals so perfectly fashioned?
I don’t think I could live if you were to be rationed.
Why after eating you do I feel so hyper?
You make me feel toddlers in diapers.
You are in all the best things to eat,
cookies and cakes, and every treat.
My favourite source of you, though, is candy.
But its always hard to have some handy.
Why do you cause a tire after the charge?
I blunder along, just like a big barge.
Sugar, oh Sugar, you are so sweet,
without you, I am incomplete.
We Humans, though suffering from excessive sugar disorders (Diabetes and Obesity), cannot resist the intake of Sugar because Sugar, if consumed wisely, is an excellent source of Energy; it enhances the mood. An Organic Sugar is best to consume without any guilt.
Dessert Parlours, Ice Cream Parlours, Coffee Shops, and Sweet Boutiques are doing handsome business with Sugar nowadays; such as ‘Stella’s Sweet Boutique’ in Abu Dhabi. With perfectly Instagrammable interiors, elegant lighting, and scrumptious Food, Stella’s Sweet Boutique is a lovely and pleasant spot for everyone. Supreme quality Desserts and mouthwatering Breakfast and Snacks makes this eatery a must-visit.
Falooda was invented by Mughals in India, and it was just meant for Royalty with Sugar added to it. Still, with time, it glided to the common man of the Indian subcontinent, and now every Indian loves it. Stella’s Rose Falooda is a tribute to that Common man’s falooda with a touch of royalty with fresh rose petals and an abundance of rose flavours. It’s not the best Falooda in the town (due to dominance of vermicelli), but it is one of the bests for sure. Served in the appealing glass where the overhead light falling on it makes it look even tempting, Stella’s Rose Falooda is stellar dessert. Mango Bowl, Rose Milk Cake, Signature Date bites, and varieties of other sweet items in the menu will make you crave for more every time you visit (thanks to Sugar).
Stella’s Sweet Boutique is not only about Sweet but also about Savouries. The curiously plated Potato Croquettes with avocado-mint salsa is very tasty and highly recommended; its outside crunch and inside loaded with soft, mildly spiced, and cheesy stuffing is mouthwatering. Stella’s ‘Tomato Turkish Eggs’ is blissful, each bite gives the strokes of satisfaction and makes it a fulfilling breakfast; this one is conventional Turkish Egg’s alteration to the perfection and served with home-baked bread. Zaatar Fries is conceptualised well but executed carelessly. Zaatar naturally is mildly sour and when it is sprinkled on fries should make the fries salty and tart with a hint of spice. However, Chef of Stella’s Sweet Boutique ignore this quality of Zaatar and serve it with Dynamite Labneh and Slices of limes; too much of sourness is not acceptable.
With several flaws in culinary presentation and utter perfection in plating and interiors, Stella’s Sweet Boutique can be your next food hotspot. Their Cappuccino is a classic example of a unique display of Food; they use Brazilian Specialty Coffee beans to brew it. Just go for it!
