Ice Cream Sundae

Whether it is a burger or an ice cream sundae, things are getting so expensive these days that these can be afforded only by the Royalty, it seems. In keeping with this sentiment, a Crown Prince kept his ice cream date with the New York restaurant, Serendipity 3, recently.

 

Crown Prince At Serendipity 3

Crown Prince of Dubai, Sheikh Hamdan bin Mohammed bin Rashid al Maktoum was at Serendipity 3 with an entourage of eight bodyguards and women dressed in black. Once at the Upper East Side eatery, he ordered the $1,000 ice cream sundae, which is served in a $300 Baccarat goblet made of gold. However, even as the Crown prince enjoyed his expensive sundae, he was not aware that the customer could take home the gold goblet in which the ice cream is served.

 

Therefore, when the restaurant staff handed over the Baccarat goblet in a red velvet-lined box to him, at the end of the visit, he exclaimed, "I would have ordered one for each person if I knew I got to keep the glass!" Visibly happy at this turn of events, the prince paid his bill and left a generous tip with the waiter who served him.

 

The sundae ordered by the Crown Prince is called "Golden Opulence Sundae" and it is made with some of the most expensive ingredients, including gold dust, which explains the $1,000 price-tag.

 

The Golden Opulence

The Golden Opulence is made with 5 generous scoops of Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, infused with Madagascar vanilla. However, that is not all, because the sundae is also laced with 23K edible gold leaf as well as chunks of rare Chuao chocolate, which is made with cocoa beans grown on the Caribbean sea's Venezuela coast. In addition, the sundae is drizzled in Amedei Porceleana, the most expensive chocolate of the world. Among the toppings on this sundae, there are exotic candied French fruits, truffles, gold dragets, and Marzipan cherries.

 

The piece de resistance on this sundae is the Grand Passion Caviar, served atop the sundae in a tiny glass bowl. This is an exclusive dessert caviar, made with American Golden caviar and it is fused with fresh passion fruit, orange and Armagnac. This opulent sundae is served in a Baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet and you can eat it with an 18K golden spoon to complete the indulgence.
