(Scroll down for video) A restaurant in New York, showed off their latest donut, which sells for $100 a piece.
The Manila Social Club restaurant in Brooklyn, is selling the gold-covered donut as dessert.
The gold-covered donut is made with champagne and filled with mousse and jelly. The exterior is dotted with 24 carat gold.
Some diners paid $1,200 for an order of a dozen donuts. The restaurant has been promoting the donuts on its Instagram page.
The restaurant’s owner and chef Bjorn DelaCruz, said that he sells the donuts only on Fridays. The donuts can only be ordered on the Internet on Thursday.
DelaCruz said that the reason for selling the donuts only on Fridays is because the restaurant is not a donut shop. DelaCruz admitted that he is surprised that people are buying the expensive donuts by the dozen.
“The Golden Cristal Ube Donut of The Manila Social Club, is adorned with icing made with Cristal champagne and filled with an ube mousse and champagne jelly, and covered with 24k Gold. $100 per donut,” the company wrote on its Instagram page.
“The donut is for people who really want to show up at the party with the best dessert,” the company added.
