5 Outrageously Expensive NY Dishes

From a 24k doughnut to a golden opulence sundae, New York is home to some of the world’s most outrageously expensive dishes. If you ever need to spend a lot of money quickly or just want to indulge, this where to go and what to order.

Golden Cristal Ube Doughnut


It was only a matter of time before the city gave us the gold doughnut, after all there was already a gold bagel. Manila Social Club in Williamsburg debuted the $100 Golden Cristal Ube Doughnut earlier this year. Each bite comes with an ube base, ube mousse and champagne jelly filling and iced with more champagne, gold dust and gold flakes.

Three scoops of Tahitian vanilla ice cream infused with Madagascar vanilla sprinkled with chocolate, candied fruits, gold dragets, chocolate truffles, caviar and topped with a 23k edible gold leaf, the Golden Opulence Sundae is the ultimate treat for those with a sweet tooth. Serendipity 3 created the dessert back in 2004 for their 50th anniversary. You’ll need to give them 48-hours notice if you plan on ordering it.
