They eat silver, don't they? VARAQ

Heavy metal, anyone?
What is pounded to gossamer thinness between cow intestines, then consumed on fancy dishes, or used to decorate sweets?
Varaq, or varq.
I am not making this up.
We are talking about eating silver foil. I have done it, bravely, reluctantly, in an upscale Indian restaurant.
Has anybody else ever tried varaq?
