1. UAE’s Largest Pizza

Russo’s is well well-known New York-style pizzeria in Dubai, with multiple locations around the city. From outstanding New York Pizzas to authentic Italian pasta to Irresistible desserts, Russo’s is your one-stop shop for all things Italian heaven. This pizzeria is highly inclusive in its menu and incredibly customisable, being able to accommodate both vegetarians and vegans.

However, their most incredible creation, the pizza to beat all pizzas, would definitely have to go to their XL-size pizza. This extreme pizza measures up to a whopping 28 inches (71cm) and is the absolute largest pizza in the country. The pizza is divided into 4 sections, and you get to choose the toppings you wish for each section. This massive pizza is big enough to feed 10 people. We tried it ourselves, and Russo’s XL Pizza definitely gets the Gulf Buzz stamp of approval.

2. UAE’s Biggest Croissant & Cappuccino

This is a two-in-one. Not only are you getting the biggest croissant, but you also get the largest Cappuccino. So, if you didn’t already know this, a regular croissant is around 20cm long (or 9 inches for those of you who are metric system impaired… just kidding. We love you too, but seriously, get with the rest of the world) 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.

If you thought that was a lot, wait till you hear how much bigger the Bohox extra-large cappuccino is compared to a regular-sized one. 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 a 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 an extreme match made in heaven.
