Dairy Queen, also known as DQ, is an American ice cream parlor and fast-food chain. The first store was located in Illinois, USA and opened in the year 1940. DQ is popular for their blizzard – a soft-serve ice cream mixed with ingredients such as cookies, brownies, or candy and blended together then presented to you up-side-down. (if the ice cream falls off, then it’s free for your next visit!)
They only have two branches across Abu Dhabi which are located in Yas Mall and World Trade Center.
FRIES – I love how they cook their fries. Not too oily and just the right amount of salt added into it. It is also good even without the ketchup.
BURGERS – they have a wide range of burgers but Swiss Mushroom Portabella is my favorite, with its creamy sauce, you will definitely fall in love with it too.
Crispy Chicken Sandwich – I also recommend this one. The ingredients are all fresh and the chicken was indeed crispy.
BLIZZARDS – DQ is very known for this one. My favorite is the cookies and cream. Don’t forget that they should show it to you upside.
Since the WTC branch is only a food stall inside a food court, they have only limited service but it’s definitely the standard of a fast-food chain.
