Only in Dubai: A French Toast topped with 24 carat gold

On #TheFoodTrail this week, we visit Hampstead in Downtown Dubai where they make a french toast fit for a king! The base is pan tres leches or three milks bread, dipped in eggs and saffron milk. It is then caramelised until golden brown. One bread goes on a bed of strawberry coulis, smeared with almond butter while the other on top is covered with 24 carat gold on all visible sides. And all of it comes for Dh225. Up for it?

Have you tried this famous Dh5 Dubai crêpe?

On #TheFoodTrail, we head to Labeeb Grocery on Jumeirah Beach Road that's been dishing out Rigag bread, UAE’s favourite wafer-thin crepe, for 20 years. There's many that do it but no one does it better than this grocery-turned-bakery. It's stood tall for two decades amidst swanky restaurants in a rich Dubai neighbourhood, catering to customers in supercars until midnight every day. A rigag here costs Dh5 to Dh7 and comes with a combination of toppings like: Cheese, hot sauce, fish sauce and eggs. And there’s a packet of crushed Oman crisps that go into it? Have you tasted a rigag here yet? Let us know
