Why not upgrade to a 24-karat dining experience?

Dubai is well-known for its gilded lifestyle, with fabulous buildings and fine-dining restaurants aplenty. So where else then, would there be so many menus featuring dishes with real gold?

From 24 karat cappuccinos to French toast and steak, these Dubai restaurants serve up dishes with edible gold.

Being one of the world’s most iconic and only 7-star hotels, it’s not really any surprise that the Burj Al Arab has dedicated gold menu items. At Sahn Eddar, order the 24k gold cappuccino, where gold is blended into the foam and then heaped on top.
