Just a couple of weeks ago, N came home and announced, “I’ve got flowers for you”. I don’t care much for flowers so I was surprised why he’d even try that. I looked at him quizzically as he pulled out his hand from behind him and showed me a bag of Sukar with this guy inside. Best flowers ever, you guys.
I have a serious love for caramel pudding. I’ve been having it since I was a kid and it’s always been one of my most favorite desserts to have. If I’m going to find it at a dessert buffet, I’ll be trying it, no matter how stuffed I am. But finding the ultimate caramel pudding is rare and if you’re not a fan, it’s only because you haven’t had the perfect one yet. When done right, it’s almost eat-your-face kind of delicious.
Finding this one at a tiny little bakery in JLT called Sukar was almost a magical experience. I used to live in the area at one time and tried this super casually one day. And it was SO good, I almost cried with joy (no jokes). If my metabolism was more cooperative, I’d probably be having this every couple of weeks.
The texture is amazing. No slimy, slippery character; very rich, creamy and firm. I love the taste of the caramel syrup that comes with most, but often the pudding will be swimming in a tasteless, watery situation. This doesn’t have much syrup but the taste is all there and it’s DELICIOUS. It will melt in your mouth, I promise you.
It’s easily one of my most favorite things in Dubai.
Where: Sukar, House of Desserts
Location: Cluster Q, Promenade Level, Jumeirah Lake Towers

The whole pudding can be ordered on a day’s notice I think.
Eat it and tell me because I love discussing food.
