Plenty of new food options to check out in this local Sharjah neighborhood
Next time you head to Sharjah and want to explore a new neighborhood then head on over to University City Sharjah.
Although we recently went there to enjoy dessert at Paper fig Desserts, we ended up scouring the entire area and discovered plenty of other options too.
Check out our recent discoveries….
Paper Fig Dessert
This small and cozy cafe with cute decor is a delightful spot serving a plethora of delicious desserts. Their French Toast is probably the most popular dish with the date pudding topped with caramel is next in line. Although it is located in one of the busiest parts of town, they offer designated parking for the customers. Swing by for some indulgent sweet treats and freshly brewed coffee.
Daily Opening: 8am – 11pm (until 12am on Thursday and Friday)

If you are wondering why this cafe is called Hoof, just step in and you’ll get the answer straight away.
The decor is quite unusual but cozy and interesting; wooden horse stable dividers allow to separate the cafe into different private booths. There are a lot of horse-oriented decorations on the walls such as saddle horse, stirrup, riding hips and more…

We can’t help but are always raving for Portuguese egg tarts also called Pasteis de Nata and if you are just like us, Nattas, a bakery, cafe and restaurant has an outlet in this Sharjah district. The floor tiles and typical facade – old fashioned veranda with an Art Deco style has us hooked.
From Portugal with Love
