Rice Creamery opens first Abu Dhabi outlet in Dalma Mall

The Rice Creamery certainly sets taste buds alight, with its retro-inspired rice pudding, which offers the universally-loved, traditional dessert with a modern, delightful twist.

The UAE’s first Rice Pudding café Rice Creamery enters Abu Dhabi with the grand launch of their first outlet in Dalma Mall.

Having already savoured the sweet taste of success in Dubai, the innovative dessert company has set eyes on an ambitious expansion programme with the aim of bringing healthy, original rice-based desserts to the UAE and beyond.

The Rice Creamery certainly sets taste buds alight, with its retro-inspired rice pudding, which offers the universally-loved, traditional dessert with a modern, delightful twist.

A range of 25 sumptuous flavours like chocolate, coconut, pistachio, date and orange are just some of the au naturel ingredients which are added to the generously creamed rice to produce desserts which burst with flavour and which provide a healthy alternative to high-fat, high-sugar ice creams. Delicious toppings include strawberries, raisins, caramel sauce, chocolate chips and honey.

Abdul Kader Saadi, Co-founder, Rice Creamery & MD, Glee Hospitality Solutions,, explains more about the concept, “We realised that rice pudding is everyone’s childhood favourite, irrespective of what region of the world one comes from! We’ve taken it to the next level by putting a new twist to it so that adults can rediscover the joy of eating it and children can experience this delicious dessert for perhaps the first time! We used a tried and tested traditional recipe to produce a pudding which is rich and creamy – the precise ingredients are a closely-guarded family secret!”

“The Rice Creamery already has plans in place to expand even further, with more outlets planned for Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and even the United Kingdom. It’s testament to the popularity of this simple but delicious dessert that the company is able to offer its innovative twist and re-imagine the humble rice pudding for the 21st century.”

Rice pudding is such an integral part of so many cultures across the world and is served both as a daily treat and as the culmination of elaborate celebrations such as weddings and birthday parties. It’s a dessert that everyone loves, and because we use the finest, natural ingredients, we can replicate the taste and texture of the sweetest childhood memories.
