Because of course a 24-carat snack exists in this city.
It was only last month that we told you about a gold-leaf-topped coffee that had arrived in the city, weighing in at Dhs75 a cup.
But now the Armani Hotel’s cappuccino has some meaty competition, quite literally.
Say hello to the Burg Khalifa, a five-storey Wagyu beef creation decadently layered with foie gras, truffled cheese and sandwiched between a brioche bun.
And it’s no ordinary bun, oh no – this one’s covered in 24-carat gold leaf, and costs Dhs230.
The indulgent snack comes courtesy of London-based food truck The Roadery, which will be setting up shop at this year’s Eat The World DXB.
The international food truck event will take place this month (between February 23 and 25) at Burj Park in Downtown Dubai.
Dubbed the burger “fit for a Sheikh”, The Roadery’s Midas-inspired option also comes oozing with saffron mayonnaise and blackberry ketchup.
“With its undisputed reputation for luxury and incredible ability to build almost anything bigger and better than the rest of the world, we couldn’t return to Eat The World DXB without something extra special this year,” said The Roadery owner Dan Shearman.
“We’ll have a limited stock so we suggest Dubai foodies get down to Burj Park nice and early.”
There’s a free Burg Khalifa up for grabs for the first two customers to say the secret password of the day (follow The Roadery on Snapchat to find it).
Eat the World DXB is part of Dubai Food Festival 2017, and will welcome more than 25 food trucks from the USA, UK, Singapore and the UAE.
There’s more than just food on offer too – the weekend will see celebrity chefs put on demonstrations, there’ll be screenings of food-themed films, and there’s live music and children’s activities too.
