A Filipino restaurant in Williamsburg, Brooklyn is selling a gold-coated champagne doughnut for $100.
Manila Social Club is known for its ube doughnuts, which are purple and cost $40 per dozen. Ube jam, which comes from mashing purple yams, is used in Filipino desserts.
The golden ube doughnut has icing made with Cristal champagne and it’s filled with ube mousse and champagne jelly. The outside is flecked with 24-karat gold.
Some New Yorkers have apparently been willing to put down $1,200 for an order of a dozen. Gold is trading at $1,075 an ounce.
