You Can Fry Eggs On Dubai's Streets — Thanks To The Sweltering Heat

"This is how we do it in Dubai," a chef exclaimed after frying an egg in Dubai’s sweltering heat. "Sunny side up!"



A chef just released a video on his Instagram food channel showing the world how, thanks to the severely hot weather, stoves are obsolete in Dubai these days. 

As the temperature of the city reached a record high at around 120ºF (49ºC), a man decided to use all the heat to fry an egg.

“Today we're going to cook an egg outside in the's like 50 degrees (C). The pan has been sitting here for like 10 minutes,” the chef explained before starting his experiment.  

He pours in some oil on the frying pan and lays a cracked egg over it. The pan was placed on a brick pathway on a road in Dubai. Within minutes the oil starts to sizzle.

And in less than one minute, the egg transformed into a fried egg just because of the heated the road on which the pan was placed.

“This is how we do it in Dubai. Sunny side up… it's ready,” he exclaims.

“Who needs a stove when you live in the UAE?” a person commented on the Instagram post. 

The weather situation in the Gulf region is really intense currently. According to a Weather Underground report, temperatures recently reached an incredible 129.2°F (54°C) in Mitribah, Kuwait, setting the record for the warmest temperature ever recorded outside of California's Death Valley. 

Last month, a video making waves on the internet showed a truck’s tires melting into the ground because of high temperatures in Kuwait.
