We’ve written in the past about the “World’s Most Expensive Sundae” — the $1,000 Golden Opulence Sundae at New York City’s Serenity 3 restaurant or the $3,333 sundae from the Three Twins ice cream shop in San Rafael, California. Now, an ice cream shop in Dubai called the Scoopi Cafe has unveiled the world’s most expensive scoop of ice cream.
A single scoop of the cafe’s “Black Diamond” flavor (above) carries a price tag of $817. The high-priced treat is described on the cafe’s menu as “exotic Madagascar vanilla ice cream flavored with the world’s most expensive saffron, topped with slices of the diamond of gastronomy black truffle, sprinkled with 23 carat edible gold.” As a bonus, diners get to keep the spoon that comes with it, and the fancy Versace bowl it’s served in.
The combination of vanilla, saffron and black truffle is interesting (that’s putting it nicely), but we’re curious to hear your thoughts. Assuming cost wasn’t an issue — let’s say they very generously offered you a scoop of Black Diamond for FREE — would you try it?
