$100 Donut Iced With Cristal Champagne And 24k Gold

January 7, 2016

This is the $100 Golden Cristal Ube Donut available from The Manila Social Club restaurant in Brooklyn, NY. Purple yams are called ube in the Philippines, so it's a donut filled with ube mousse, champagne jelly, and covered with a glaze made from Cristal champagne and 24k gold flakes. You think you poop gold after eating one? I hope not. If you're buying $100 donuts I hope you poop blood. No I don't, that's just me being jealous. I can't even afford plain donut holes. The closest I've come to ever eating a donut is licking the finger of a friend who just had one and he only let me do that because he'd been scratching his ass when I wasn't looking so I only know what buttnuts taste like now. You don't want to live my life.

Thanks to me, for being 100% honest and sharing my experiences with you. It's how we grow together.

    It's a shame gold isn't poisonous, we need to skim off the gene pool.

    But is there a gluten-free version?

    When I read the headline, I assumed this was in Russia. Why is that?

  • Xockszky

    Because like Americans, when Russians get a hold of a lot of money, they tend to do insane ghetto things with it, like this doughnut.

  • SHOUTING

    Since moving to the USA I've finally started to understand the cultural differences that define our perceptions of "good food":

    In Europe "good food" means: carefully and caringly cultivated produce designed to meet the fullest potential of what it means to be meat, or cheese, or sausage, or whatever. Combined to make a dish.

    In America "good food" means: a dish comprised of the most indulgent individual elements we can find. Not necessarily good on their own, or even together. But fuck a load of cheese and grease and sugar and salt on it to hit all those endorphin-releasing sweet spots on your tongue.

    And, of course, gold stuff. Filtered through diamonds. And cheese. With salt. Deep-fried. And then getting all threatened and insecure when someone points it out.

    It's like confirming and reinforcing cultural stereotypes is a national pastime here.

    I've never felt so proud of my heritage until this day.
