As I strolled through the food court of Dolmen City Mall, my friend’s suggestion to try the pasta at Cosmopolitan caught my attention, and oh, how grateful I am for that suggestion. Standing out as a restaurant can be a daunting task amidst a sea of food vendors, but Cosmopolitan does it beautifully! This review aims to capture the essence of what makes Cosmopolitan such a magical place to dine.
Taste: A Sucker for Pasta
As I settled into my seat at Cosmopolitan, my eyes scanned the menu with eager anticipation. Unable to resist the lure, I found myself succumbing to the allure of the Tabasco Spiked Penne Pasta. When it arrived, the aroma alone was enough to make my mouth water.
The al dente penne, lovingly coated in a sauce kissed by Tabasco, delivered a punch of heat and tang. The succulent chicken, tender and juicy, mingled harmoniously with the fiery sauce, creating a delectable marriage of textures and tastes.
As a lover of all things spicy, I was in heaven with every bite. It was a dish that paid homage to Tabasco lovers, an ode to those who seek a fiery passion in their pasta.
But the journey did not end there. Next, I ventured into the summery realm of the Chili Garlic Prawn Pasta with Rocket and Feta. The plump and succulent prawns, bathed in a delicate blend of chili and garlic, provided a burst of freshness that transported me to sun-kissed shores.
The pasta embraced the prawns with a gentle caress, while the salty feta added a captivating depth to every mouthful. Tossed alongside vibrant rocket leaves, the dish radiated a harmony of colors and flavors that delighted both my palate and my senses.
At that moment, I felt a surge of pure delight. The passion and artistry that went into crafting these dishes were evident in every bite. Cosmopolitan had woven a spell, casting me into a world of wonder.

And then, it was time for dessert. The Rich Chocolate Gateau beckoned to me from the menu, promising to be a decadent finale. When it arrived, my heart skipped a beat. The sight of the flourless, gooey chocolate cake was a feast for my eyes, its velvety texture and deep, dark color exuding pure temptation. With a scoop of creamy vanilla ice cream delicately placed beside it, I knew I was about to embark on a blissful encounter.
As I took my first forkful, my senses were engulfed in chocolate. The cake was impossibly rich, its intense chocolate flavor enveloping my palate with every bite. Each mouthful was a harmonious balance of fudgy indulgence and silky smoothness, leaving me in a state of pure dessert euphoria. The contrasting coolness of the vanilla ice cream provided the perfect accompaniment, complementing the warm decadence of the gateau with its creamy sweetness.
With each heavenly morsel, time seemed to stand still, as if the world outside ceased to exist. It left me satiated, yet yearning for more, a dessert that etched itself into my memory, forever capturing my heart as a true masterpiece of sweet indulgence!
