Instagram-Wow – Poption Options Cafe
Poption Options is a homegrown Qatari brand whose story began in 2012 with gourmet popcorn products. They use mushroom corn kernels which have a compact and round shape. This provides a larger surface area for their seasoning mixes to adhere to thus making the end product a high quality popcorn.
The popcorn flavours are made using premium products, which includes Belgian chocolate and fresh ingredients. Whole nuts and biscuits are also used rather than cheaper powdered versions. Two of the standout savoury popcorn flavours include Parmesan and Spanish Tomato.
The gourmet popcorn is available to purchase for eating or for gifting purposes. Popcorn gifts are presented in tins and can be made up for special occasions, with a choice of 1 to 4 flavours to choose from per tin. Popcorn flavours include BBQ, Carmelo, and Jalapeño Cheese. There are also special popcorn mixes of Vanilla Oreo, Pistachio, and Arabian flavour.
Thanks to the success of their flavoured gourmet popcorn the brand was able to diversify its offerings by opening the Poption Options Cafe in Porto Arabia. They also offer freshly made nut butters without any nasty ingredients. Nuts such as hazelnuts are placed into a special machine which processes the nuts to make their natural nut butters.
Poption Options Cafe – The Dessert Highlights
Poption Options Cafe’s colourful visual space is a conversation starter, while the delectable desserts will keep you coming back for more. Here are our top 3 delicious reasons why you need to visit Poption Options Cafe!
1. Chocolate Lacey Kek
Apparently the R&D team at Poption Options are keen to experiment with new ideas, which has led to the release of their innovative Lacey Kek – an unusual dessert whose method of preparation is a closely guarded secret.
The Lacey Kek is one of those desserts that will mistake you into thinking that it is only ordered for the insta-shot. However the dessert is surprisingly good – crispy with a unique moreish texture. It’s available in chocolate and saffron – we recommend the chocolate version.
2. The Oreo Cheesecake
This is a stellar dessert – the one that you can’t stop eating even as you think of the extra calories. Make sure you share with a friend to lessen the guilt factor!
Poption Options also brings a Qatari twist to the cheesecake with its use of Arabic flavours such as the popular ingredients saffron and pistachio.
3. Red Velvet Latte
The team has also introduced the highly trending coffee art that has taken Qatar by storm. At Poption Options Cafe they have a sophisticated food printer that prints out various designs using edible ink.
There are a range of designs to choose from with Arabic or English fonts, including several ‘Happy Birthday’ designs. The popular designs feature Arabic poetry, as well as the famous Tamim Al Majd Mural. If you love flavoured coffees you cannot leave without trying the red velvet latte!
