You can order an $817 scoop of ice cream featuring edible 23-carat gold flakes in Dubai.

That seems like pocket change compared to the $14,500 dessert found in The Fortress Resort and Spa in Sri Lanka.

We rounded up some of the most expensive dishes you can purchase around the world, from Las Vegas to Malta.

Here are nine that are sure to break the bank:


Head to New York City’s Serendipity 3 for a $1,000 Golden Opulence Sundae: Tahitian vanilla ice cream topped in edible 23-carat gold leaf, rare and expensive chocolate, candied fruits, chocolate truffles, and caviar. You’ll enjoy your thousand-dollar sundae out of a Baccarat Harcourt goblet with an 18-carat gold spoon.

Because it’s #NationalIceCreamDay. ????✨ Here we have the Golden Opulence Sundae, the most expensive sundae in the world, costing a cool $1k! Found at Serendipity 3 at Caesar’s Palace in Las Vegas, this sundae is made using three scoops of rich Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, infused with Madagascar vanilla and covered in 23k edible gold leaf. The chocolate syrup used is from melted Amedei Porcelana, one of the world’s most expensive chocolates; and covered with chunks of rare Chuao chocolate, which is from cocoa beans harvested by the Caribbean Sea on Venezuela’s coast. The sundae is then adorned with exotic candied fruits from Paris, gold covered almonds/dragets, chocolate truffles and marzipan cherries. Added to the dessert is a tiny glass bowl of Grand Passion Caviar, an exclusive dessert caviar, and the whole masterpiece is finally topped off with a gilded sugar flower and sprinkled with small flakes of more edible gold. You even get to keep the baccarat crystal glass it’s served in, and the gold-plated spoon it comes with! ???? {info from Wikipedia} ????: Caesars Entertainment

If you’ve had enough Shake Shack or In-N-Out, you can mix things up with a $5,000 Fleur Burger at the Las Vegas restaurant Fleur. The hamburger is fashioned from opulent Kobe beef, black truffles, and foie gras, and served with two sides: crisp fries and a rare bottle of 1995 Petrus wine.

The Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence, found in The Fortress Resort and Spa in Sri Lanka, will cost you $14,500. Considered more of a challenge than a sweet dish, it’s a gold-leaf Italian cassata decorated with a handmade chocolate carving in the shape of a local stilt fisherman and an 80-carat Aquamarine stone.

In New Orleans, Arnaud’s serves a $3.95 million dessert: its namesake, the Strawberries Arnaudits. While the strawberries are tasty, what makes the price tag so outrageous is the diamond that comes with this engagement package.

You’ll find the world’s most expensive ice cream at Scoopi Cafe in Dubai: The $817 Black Diamond flavor featuring edible 23-carat gold flakes, Madagascar vanilla ice cream, Iranian saffron, and black truffle. If you dish out the money for the scoop, you’ll get to keep the Versace bowl and spoon it’s served with.

You can buy a $100-foot long bratwurst at DougieDog in Montreal, Canada. The Dragon Dog is infused with a vintage $2,000 Louis XIII cognac and topped with lobster, picante sauce, and Kobe beef seared in olive and truffle oil.

Margo’s in Malta will serve you a white truffles and gold pizza for as low as 1,800 euros (about $2,000). The price varies depending on the market price of the truffles, which are flown in fresh the day of ordering. In addition to the white truffles, 24-carat gold leaf and organic water-buffalo mozzarella adorn the pizza.

Possibly the best advertising I’ve seen in Malta. Yes!
