Golden sand, gold jewelry of oriental beauties, hotels painted and decorated with gold – it seems that in the Emirates people are obsessed with this precious metal! And, apparently, when the glitter of gold almost eclipses the sun, it’s time to calm down with this obsession — but no! Gold rush has captured everyone here! In the Emirates, they even drink gold!
Of course, this is edible gold — it is harmless and does not affect the taste and the smell of food. The most popular of these delicacies is coffee with gold — one of the "hallmarks" of the Emirates. It looks like an ordinary coffee with gold flakes on the surface. Also, there are varieties with cream or syrup, but you can hardly try it with alcohol, that is strictly prohibited in the UAE.
