Chef Kelvin Cheung Introduces New Desserts to the Jun’s Menu and Celebrates the Second Anniversary with a “Two Sweet” Sharing Platter

The modern, fine-dining venue adds an Ube twist to a Coconut Cream Pie, an innovative Matcha Pistachio Tiramisu, and a Carrot Kelvin Cake inspired by the restaurant’s famous Rainbow Heirloom Carrots

Jun’s, Dubai’s multi-award-winning restaurant in the heart of Downtown, has launched an all-new dessert menu with creative flavours and a unique set of storytelling. The destination restaurant, which ranked Number 21 in the MENA’s 50 Best Restaurants earlier this year, brings new flavour combinations and pioneering concepts to the region.


Operating without borders, the highly sought-after restaurant takes guests on a culinary journey through Cheung’s rich history of travelling the world and cooking in kitchens in unfamiliar places. Showcasing his renowned creativity and flair, Cheung’s dessert and cake menus feature a wide range of ingredients that will impress even the most discerning gastronomes. Creating an inclusive dining experience for guests, the new desserts are predominantly gluten-free, with a vegan option to cater to a range of dietary preferences.

Noticing a gap in the market for pies and wanting to add yet another original dish to his incredible portfolio, Cheung crafted the Coconut Ube Pie, a dessert which uses Filipino flavours and ingredients in honour of the hardworking team at Jun’s.

“I believe that they are the backbone of the UAE’s service industry and their cuisine is, unfortunately, under-represented. This highlights their culture and encourages the team to experiment with familiar flavours to create dishes themselves” comments Cheung.


Another new addition to the menu is the Table Side Pista-Matcha-Misu, a unique version of the classic Tiramisu dessert which uses freshly baked Japanese Rice Cookies dipped in Cold Brew instead of traditional Ladyfingers.

Topping the dessert is Matcha Cremeux, a crumble made from Puffed Rice, Matcha Pistachio, and Burnt Milk Crumb, all complete with classic Mascarpone Sabionge which is folded with fresh Pistachio. The dessert is prepared tableside while Cheung and his team delve into the story behind the dish, creating an immersive experience for the guests. Building upon their sustainability and food waste practices, the team uses all Pistachio waste to create a cracker that tops the dessert.

While other dishes on the dessert menu include Mango Panna Cotta, Boba Creme Brulee, Baked Alaska, and Apple Tart, the famous Kelvin Cakes are also a signature staple to the restaurant. Inspired by Cheung’s Chinese heritage and North American upbringing, the extravagant cakes pay homage to the traditional sugar sponge cake. The breathtaking flavours include Carrot, Mango, Hong, Mallow, Bai, Peanut, Coffee, Ube, Pina Colada, Cookie, Pistachio, and Strawberry. With a recent enhancement, the Carrot Kelvin Cake is a lighter, fluffier, and spicier version of a traditional Carrot Cake which is inspired by the Jun’s best-selling Rainbow Heirloom Carrot dish.


Marking the second anniversary of Jun’s and in collaboration with the new dessert menu, guests can now celebrate with a delectable “Two Sweet” sharing platter, comprising seven of the most favourite desserts at Jun’s over the past two years. Turning two on June 12th, the platter is available now until Sunday, June 16th and includes Coconut Ube Pie, Mango Panna Cotta, Boba Crème Brulee, Basque Cheesecake with Strawberry, Baked Alaska, Baked-to-order Maldon Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookies, and Housemade Gummy Bears.

It is no wonder that the Michelin-awarded restaurant stays front-of-mind when it comes to breathtaking, yet humble dining in Dubai. A culinary gem that speaks to an expansive audience, Jun’s is a progressive dining destination that excels in all areas, whether it be experiential desserts, famous mains, or trailblazing cocktails.
