Expensive Desserts

Posted in Food

I may like desserts (a lot), but I am not willing to go into debt for them. The little creation above costs $14,500. Yes indeed, it’s like buying a car.

What: The Fortress Aquamarine
Where: Wine3 at The Fortress; Galle, Sri Lanka
Price: $14,500

This dessert, which debuted in March, was inspired by the success of the restaurant’s other gem-studded treat, the Bombay Sapphire Martini. The star of the show is an 80-carat aquamarine gem that rests on a sliver of chocolate shaped to resemble the traditional stilt fisherman that’s part of the resort’s logo. Handmade glass utensils (not included in the price) complete the presentation. And yes, diners can pocket the gemstone after polishing off the dessert. None have yet been sold.
