15 Shockingly Expensive Desserts From Around The World
‘Oak’ Dessert ($850)
The ‘Oak’ dessert at rooftop restaurant Sirocco, in Bangkok, Thailand is not the most fanciful, but it is three courses. First course is banana, crumble and jelly, and it’s served with Chateau La Tour Blanch. Second, a foie gras base with Amedei chocolate and blackberry is served with Grahm’s Port, vintage 1983. You’ll finish it off with truffle, cognac, Armedei chocolate and honey, served with L’or de Martel cognac. And then there’s the view…
The Brownie Extraordinaire ($1,000)
Bet the last time you baked brownies you didn’t know there’s one out there that fetches $1000. Sold at Brule, in Atlantic City, NJ, the brownie is made of dark chocolate, covered in Italian hazelnuts and served with ice cream. Sounds like an $8 dessert, right? Not when it’s served with the very rare Quinta do Novel Nacional from Portugal, a port wine that’s served in a St. Louis crystal atomizer on the side.
Golden Opulence Sundae ($1,000)
Leave it to Serendipity 3 to take the classic chocolate sundae to the next level.
