The O’Gold Vada Pao consists of a tender bun loaded with a vada, which is stuffed with truffle butter and cheese. Topped with a homemade mayonnaise dip, the snack is wrapped in premium quality French-imported 22k gold leaves, and comes with a side of sweet potato fries and mint lemonade, reports Khaleej Times. This dish is being served at the Dubai-based restaurant O’Pao in Karama and Al Quoz.
