A portion of this fortune-granting ichthyoid would cost approximately $1,651.30. When you're tipping against that cost, don't forget to factor in the irony surcharge that also comes with it.
Cost so far:
($3,230.44 + $1,651.30) = $4,881.74 (Based on 1kg serving, the strangely ginormous portion size being offered to diners)
Course 5: Dessert
The Grand Opulence Sundae
Say what you will about "The Grand Opulence Sundae," it is certainly not lacking in self-esteem. This sundae has happily abandoned its podunk Dairy Queen roots for the big city life at New York's Serendipity restaurant and taken the scooping of ice cream into a bowl to new heights.
The Grand Opulence Sundae pairs both Tahitian and Madagascarian vanilla in the ice cream, creating a bombastic fusion of the world's most pedestrian flavor. It is, not surprisingly, covered in edible 23-carat gold leaf. Apparently the ability to shit gold links after a meal is highly prized among the glitterati.
It is then drizzled with the world's most expensive chocolate, Amedei Porceleana, and covered with chunks of rare Chuao chocolate.
The Chuao chocolate is harvested in a remote area of Venezuela that can only be reached by boat, which is why the Oompa Loompas have remained safe there for so many years. On top of that, it is further festooned with exotic candied fruits from Paris, gold dragets, truffles and Marzipan cherries, and probably the Hope diamond. Finally it is topped with a tiny glass bowl of fruit-infused Grand Passion Caviar. The caviar was a late addition because the rainbow sprinkles originally used kept the cost prohibitively low. The masterpiece is served in a baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet with an 18-carat gold spoon.
