In New York , Bloomingdale’s is famous for its frozen yoghurt (among other things). A range of toppings, from fruit to Oreos, can accompany this tangy, low-fat dessert. Forty Carrots serves coffee and sandwiches too, but it’s the frozen yoghurt that made it famous.
This NYC bakery produces the world’s best-known cupcakes, and yes, they really are as good as everyone says. Now hordes of Dubai residents can queue for the magnificent pastries, just as they do in New York.
