There is a golden opulence Sunday served in New York at Serendipity 3 that cost about 1,000.00 and I always loved the way it looked. Who wouldn't mind eating gold? lol Here is a little Wikipedia description of it: five scoops of ice cream made with vanilla beans from Tahiti (Vanilla Tahiti). The chocolate syrup used is from melted Amedei Porcelana, one of the world's most expensive chocolates. "candied fruits, gold covered almonds, chocolate truffles and marzipan cherries." edible 23-carat gold leaf and tiny flakes of gold are sprinkled.[ floral decorations made with sugar paste that can take up to 18 hours to construct are placed on the sundae.
Probably out of curiosity I would like to try the Durian fruit. I mean Andrew Zimmer, from Bizarre Foods, can eat grilled rectum from a water buffalo in the depths of the desert ina third world country, and a glass of fermented milk from a sick goat. However, he cannot stomach the idea of eating this fruit. Anthony Bourdain has no problem eating it.
I've wanted to try sushi but have never had the opportunity. My wife won't even go near the sushi counter in the supermarket. I would like to have someone who's knowledgeable come with me when I do go to try it so they can make recommendations, but nobody I know seems to be terribly fond of it either.
First off bruddah decide what type you are willing to try. Please stay away from the supermarket junk, go fresh. When you are ready, sit at the bar. order an "Asahi", and talk with the "Itamae" (chef). True Sushi is an experience. I hope you try it.
