Portuguese Kiosque

2014-09-29 - 560 Café

Alma 560 is a unique concept with roots in European heritage & traditions, brought to the UAE by a Portuguese team. It represents the passion & soul that the Portuguese hold dear & share through their culinary traditions & culture. The most important element differentiating Alma from the competition is the fact that it will be the only café to offer Pastel de Nata, a unique & delicious Portuguese pastry that has a deep & rich history spanning 2 centuries since its creation in the 1800s in Portugal.

Working with the lovely Portuguese couple, the founders of Alma, was like taking a whirlwind journey into the ancient architectural & culinary history of Portugal. It felt like we had travelled & returned more exhilarated while never leaving Dubai! Inspired by their passion & insights into the ancient as well as today’s urban Lisbon, we helped visualize & executed the concept creation as well as interior inspiration for their authentic Portuguese ‘Kiosque’ for Dubai.
