If I am to name food spots inside Mall of the Emirates which are strategically situated, these would be St. Moritz and Costa cafes. Both are neighbor establishments of Ski Dubai. With Costa Cafe on second level (where we dined), with the other on the ground.
Whichever cafe you would go in, you will definitely be regaled by the sight of people charmingly chilling, chairlifting, having huge fun.
I think it’s a double take. In our case, we decided to have lunch before going in Ski Dubai. But if you’re a by-stander, chances are you’ll be encouraged to join in the breeze, too or dine in any of these cafes for a better view (and probably get photographed with this as background).
I think no one can resist taking snaps even while dining. You’ll notice that the ice setting reached the cafe. Yes, the snow isn’t real, but all these are pure ice. (I remember the styros in Snow World). Expect to chill.
I think the capitalists’ cost of investment is more recoverable at this point, since electricity is cheaper in this part of the world. Hence, they gave in to generous accessorizing and maintenance of ice. Who would have thought skiing would be possible in the Gulf?
