There were so many beautiful cakes at Elan to choose from but I decided to go for:
Black Forest Gateau Cake
Rose & Pistachio Cream Cake
Chocolate Mousse Layer Cake
My favourite was definitely the Chocolate Mousse Cake which was light, airy, rich and chocolatey whilst not being too sweet! The rose and pistachio cake was a close second - also very light and airy, which is quite dangerous because you can eat loads of it without feeling full😅 The Black Forest Gateau was more like a chocolate cake - I would have liked more cherries between the layers. All in all, I enjoyed the cakes and I will definitely be going back to try the others, such as their variety of cheesecakes and tarts 😍
We also tried the pulled beef sandwich at @backyarduae which was stuffed with pulled beef ribs and bacon sides with steak fries and garlic aioli! The portion suffices one person's tummy and is great for a not-so-heavy filling meal.

Shakshuka, Courgette & Halloumi fries, chicken goujons - Rating:8/10

I made sure to not eat before going to Elan for brunch, as I wanted to try their breakfast dishes aswell as their sweet offerings 🍰 My hunger was definitely satisfied by their delicious savoury food. The Shakshuka was full of flavour, well seasoned and the flatbread and houmous complemented the dish nicely. I would have liked for the egg yolks to have been runny, but apart from that, the dish was perfect. The halloumi & courgette fries and chicken goujons accompanied the meal nicely and I loved the dips that came with them!
I would definitely recommend Elan, if you fancy a Mediterranean inspired brunch - just be prepared to queue!
