GOLD O’VADA PAO BY O’PAO

How do you make the humble vada pao gourmet? Fill the vada with Italian truffle butter and cheese, and then wrap it in 22-carat edible gold from France. Introduced by O’Pao restaurant in September, the Gold O'Vada Pao is served in a carved wooden box lit with a nitrogen base and comes with a side of sweet potato fries and mint lemonade. Amol Dhote, the founder of O’Pao, says it is mildly spicy, oozes a truffle smell, and tastes like mashed potato with cheese inside a soft scrumptious bun. It’s available at the restaurant in Al Karama and is priced at AED 99 (indicative price in India around ₹2,000).
