We track down the best cupcakes in Abu Dhabi

Timeout Review / Sara Taher

Mamas Cupcakes

It’s no secret that us Abu Dhabians have a sweet tooth, but there’s one particularly naughty treat that seems to be more popular than most. It’s a dirty job, but Sara Taher heads out to find the best.

This little venue in Mamoura has a unique selection of flavours and treats. Two of our favourites are (brace yourself) beetroot and sweet potato. Yes, the vivacious and warm owner Faiza Taha has a special way of creating these delicious culinary treats.

‘I have always loved beetroot and I made a jam from it because it is a little sweet. That’s when I started experimenting. The response from the public has been great; many people that try the beetroot come back for more. I also try to infuse a lot of flavours into my creations.

For example, in my orange cupcakes I actually use oranges to make the batter, same with the lemon or blueberry. I find these touches give our menu a little something special that helps us stand out from the competition.’
