The Grounds of Alexandria sure made a magnificent makeover of their place. Taking inspiration from the iconic city of Agrabah in the film Aladdin, the said café transformed itself into this spectacular place. Walking into the café is an immersive experience, and dining there a magical encounter.
The mood wouldn’t be complete without a menu makeover, so while the experience is open, The Grounds is serving magical drinks like the color-changing “Magic Carpet Ride” cocktail and the “Friend Like Me” tea. The latter is a blend of hibiscus, apple, pomegranate and rosehip and is served in a magic lamp, naturally.
As for desserts, they have dishes like the “I Wish for More…Cake,” a pistachio sponge cake layered with white chocolate and orange blossom mousse and raspberry confit. The outside is a purple, shimmery, sparkly situation with a chocolate magic lamp on top so uh, yeah, we want in. The Jafar Cake is equally impressive-looking—to eat it, you crack open what looks like a mandarin orange to find a white chocolate and orange mousse with citrus and almond cake inside.
Check out the amazing venue and the magical food over at the cafe’s Instagram account.
