Now, the evening savoury has got a new ‘golden’ twist. The world’s first 22K gold plated vada pav is now available to show its magic on the streets of Dubai.
Bringing the authentic taste of Mumbai to Dubai, O'Pao, located in Karama and known for serving Indian sliders, has been satisfying tastebuds of desi people in the country with a wide variety of vada pavs for quite some time now.
O'Pao has introduced the the 'precious' pav, which is available for dine-in only and is priced at Dh99 ( (approx INR 2,000).
According to details shared by the restaurant, the vada of the new item on the menu will be filled with cheese and imported French truffle butter. The bread, aka pav, will be topped with a homemade mint mayonnaise dip.
Served in a wooden box, the makers also amped it up using a nitrogen base for added effect. The dish is accompanied by a portion of sweet potato fries and mint lemonade.
However, given Dubai’s fascination with super expensive gold food dishes, this doesn’t seem quite surprising. The country has seen 24-karat gold burgers, ice-creams, French toasts and even Biryani and the humble vada pav only seems to be the latest to join the club.
