Ubuntu Community — The Vegan Cafe @ Prince Anwar Shah Road

Lime Cheezecake with Nolen Gur Topping: Not quite cheesy the way it usually is, but just the dessert to cool your palate and warm your heart on hot days. The wholly plant-based ‘cheezecake’ is made with cashew ‘cheeze’, lime almonds, walnut, dates, coconut cream, and nolen gur or date palm jaggery and isn’t something that you come across every day. Rs 240

Ubuntu Special Brownie with Vanilla Nice Cream: No brownie points for guessing that brownies continue to be among our all-time favourite desserts. And it only gets doubly delicious when it’s wholewheat and cruelty-free, made with cocoa and almond milk. It’s paired with a melt-in-the-mouth, cruelty-free ‘nice cream’ comprising vanilla bean and coconut cream. Rs 220
