Well, from burgers to French toasts, coffee and chai- Dubai is home to some of the most luxurious gold dishes. And now, we’ve got a new addition to this list. This time, India’s favourite street food- the vada pav has received a golden makeover and we’re lovin it. O’Pao in Karama has launched a 22 karat gold vada pao and its dunked with all things yum! Read on to know more.

Bite Into The World’s First 22 Karat Gold O’Vada Pao 

Pav lovers, don’t limit your honesty towards the humble pav with cliche vada pavs. There’s more and this little restaurant in Karama is cashing in on this concept. O’Pao, situated in the buzzing by-lanes of Karama is all about Pav and now the restaurant has taken this concept to a whole new level.

O’Pao has now introduced the world’s first 22 Karat Gold O’ Vada Pao. Known to combine fresh ingredients with familiar Indian and global fillings, stuffed between soft and scrumptious Pao’s, this time around the hidden joint decided to take the humble Pao to the next level.

But wait! It’s not only the gold that makes the vada pao different. The vada is filled with cheese and imported french truffle butter while the bread is topped with homemade mint mayonnaise dip. The Vada (flavoured potato dumpling)  is wrapped with premium quality French imported 22 Karat golden leaves.

The 22 Karat Gold O’Vada Pao is served in a mystical wooden carved box lit with Nitrogen base, and it comes with a side of sweet potato fries & mint lemonade.

The golden vada pav is available only for dine in and is priced at AED 99.

What Else Can You Find On The Menu?

With PaO being the hero of the menu, the restaurant has traveled that extra mile to make the best use of it. If you wish to stay honest to the humble vada pav, O’Pao offers that too. But, for those who like to step outside the comfort zone, you have a lot to explore. Skip the cliche panner butter masala and bite into O’Pao’s loaded Paneer Bhurjee pao. This one’s sure to remind you of Ghar ka paneer.

Chinese lovers can savor the juicy Manchurian or the Schezwan Maggi pao, served with a desi twist while those who are in for a cheesy meal can get their hands dirty with the O’Cheesy Jalapeno or the Chilli Cheese pao. Meat lovers, you are not sidelined too! The restaurant has a special section of non-veg paos ranging from butter chicken, kheema, mutton khicha paos alongside the mouth-watering seekh kebab pao.
