The famous Manhattan restaurant Serendipity 3 has made itself famous with one of the most expensive desserts ever created. You might be thinking about the last time you shelled out $20 for a dessert or even something crazy like $50. For most of us even those numbers look ridiculous. The pricetag on this dessert will blow your mind! A single serving will cost you $1000.
Of course, you’re thinking that I meant to say one-hundred because there is no way anyone would ever charge $1000 for a single serving of dessert, but you heard me right, one-thousand big ones!
Without someone telling you exactly where its at, you would probably never find the place. You’ll find it at 225 E 60th St, which is just east of Central Park a few blocks. After enjoying the park, take a stroll with your sweetheart or hunk and hit this romantic hotspot.
The dessert that has added them to the Guinness Book of World Records is the Golden Opulence Sundae. It is something fit only for a king with it’s unique ingredients. It cannot be produced upon arrival, but they need an advanced reservation of 48 hours prior to arrival. This gives them sufficient time to put together this golden treat.
Here are some of the ingredients, and you’ll notice that some of the come from faraway lands and are flown in to NYC just so all the ingredients are fresh.
- Vanilla Ice Cream made with vanilla beans flown in from Tahiti
- Amadei Porcelana, which is one of the most expensive chocolates in the world, and sounds like something that just fell from heaven.
- Hand crafted delicious candies
- Edible gold flakes. Oh yes, you heard me right. You will be eating some gold in this dessert.
I’d never recommend that anyone blow $1000 on this Sundae, but it would be really cool to take a bite of it to see if it is really worth ten Benjamins. You would hope that the dessert would not disappoint, but more than likely it would. I’m sure they’ve had to skimp on some of the ingredients, like gold lately as it has been on an upward climb for the last few years.
They also have a famous dessert that won’t cost you everything in the piggy bank. Nor will it require that you actually eat pure gold.
This is the frozen hot chocolate you see on the left. You can get this bad boy for $9, and is big enough to share with your sweetheart.
This is something that I’d recommend you do.
The restaurant has a very romantic feel. It would be the perfect setting for a chick flick or the Bachelor. It would be a great visit for someone who was headed there on their anniversary where they could share a Golden Opulence Sundae, or probably more likely the frozen hot chocolate.
