If you thought ice creams were child’s play, think again!
At Scoopi Cafe, a newly launched gourmet chocolatier and ice cream café on Jumeirah Road in Dubai, a scoop of their signature ‘Black Diamond’ sundae sells no less than Dh2,999.
Made with the finest Madagascar Vanilla ice cream and infused with ambrosial Iranian saffron and black Italian truffles, the scoop is a result of five weeks of a experiment with recipes and ingredients from all over the world.
As delicious as it is expensive, the sundae is also adorned with 23 carat edible gold before being, befittingly, served on a Versace bowl and spoon to match. As a memento of the one-of-a-kind experience, the café lets the customer keep the designer set.
