Dubai restaurant launches Dhs1,550 dish

Beluga, the only dedicated caviar restaurant in Dubai and located in the new Mandarin Oriental Jumeira has launched what it claims is one of the most expensive dishes in the world – the 24-karat “Golden Cigar” made with Almas caviar.

We're not sure about the boast, but what we do know is that 250 grams of Almas caviar (which is the most expensive in the world) will set you back Dhs36,000 at Beluga. But if you’ll not willing to get a loan from the bank in order to fulfil your caviar cravings, you try the “Golden Cigar” dish for mere (cough) Dhs1,500.

The caviar comes nestled in an edible tube.

Elsewhere on the fancy menu is Angus beef tartare with beluga caviar, warm scallop carpaccio, eggs benedict with salmon and caviar and even smoked sturgeon gold maki with American caviar.

Not a fan of caviar? The new hotel is also home to Tasca from acclaimed chef José Avillez and Japanese steakhous Netsu.
