5. BOHOX, Sheikh Mohammah Bin Rashid Boulevard
Let me spill the tea on this place, well by tea I actually mean COFFEE. This Restaurant is home to UAE’s Biggest Croissant & Cappuccino, and its nothing like what you would expect. If you didn’t know this, a regular croissant is around 20cm long (9 inches) but The Bohox’s extra large croissant is over 4 times bigger than that at a whopping 90cm in length (35 inches). That’s definitely more than enough bread for one person. Meanwhile their XL coffee is on a whole other level. In a standard cup of coffee you’ll find around 177ml (equivalent to 6 ounces) but The Bohox said no thank you that is way too small for us. So what they did is take 28 cups of coffee, put it in gigantic mug and woe and behold we now have a 5 Litre cup of coffee right here in Dubai for us to enjoy. Pair these two together and we would definitely call that a match made in heaven. You’ll definitely love this restaurant. And if you aren’t interested in XL don’t worry they have an incredible menu of regular sized food too.
