Dubai is wholly unique among its global peers. It is a centrally located city on the world map, allowing for easy flight connections to both East and West. It is overflowing with world records for its architectural and societal feats. And it is a city that offers you a way of life that you will not find anywhere else in the world. Whether you are a visitor to the city or a long-time resident, these are the experiences that you can only enjoy in Dubai.
Feast on Gold
The golden glow of Dubai can be seen in its sunsets, its pristine beaches, the design of some of its buildings, its famous gold souq, and even in a few cars you see on the highway. That glow also extends to the city’s food, with a few eateries offering food that is topped off with edible gold. The appropriately named 24 Karat is a restaurant that adds in a sprinkling of fold dust to every dish and, for its most loyal guests, engraves their names on custom gold cutlery sets. Beluga, a restaurant solely dedicated to caviar at the Mandarin Oriental Dubai, offers a double dose of luxury with a filling that includes Almas caviar, the most expensive variety in the world, along with a bit of gold foil for the garnish. Want to satisfy your sweet tooth? Then head over to Scoopi, a boutique ice cream parlor that is most famous for the Black Diamond - vanilla bean ice cream with saffron, black truffles, gold flakes and gold powder.
