Another everyday comfort food has been turned into one of the most luxurious treats of all time. We all love a soft, melt-in-your-mouth glazed doughnut to go with our cups of coffee in the morning. But this doughnut is definitely not your regular sweet treat in the morning. Golden Cristal donut is a creation of the musician, fashion executive and fine art insider, now Chef Björn De La Cruz who brings casual luxury and a sense of progress to Filipino Cuisine and the dining experience. The Manila Social Club Golden Cristal Donut is made with Ube, a naturally purple sweet yam found in the Philippine, mixed with Cristal champagne. The filling is an Ube mousse and a Cristal gelée (jelly-like texture). It is then covered in a Cristal icing and dusted with 24K pure gold dust and hand-gilded with 24K pure gold leaf. Now that is a real rich treat!
