Imagine yourself in that deli, skimming through the menu and you come across yet another worth $25,000!!..Would you close the menu, discreetly leave the restaurant and look for another cheaper place or sit, relax and order and just savour that moment? When the Brooklyn restaurant, Manila Social Club released the $100 “Golden Cristal Ube Donut’, it caused such a stir in New York City and there were those that welcomed the idea while others just felt its way too much to spend on something edible. This doughnut is made with extra layerings of edible 24-karat gold flakes and Cristal champagne icing and - surprise surprise - have been selling like hot cakes and on occasion actually sold out. These additional ingredients were introduced by Chef Bjorn DelaCruz who loves different champagnes and “wanted to add something to me the menu for the new year to celebrate how long we have been going”.
