Manilla Social Club is known for its ube donuts, made from purple yams, for $40 per dozen.
"Ooo-beh beh beh beh" is what I sang in my head when I ate these glorious ube donuts from @manilasocialclub and also how I imagine my dad singing Salt-n-Pepa's "Push It" in his Filipino accent 😂💜🍩 Seriously though these ube donuts were one of the best things I ate in 2015, a fine-tuned, light as air Filipino version of a French cruller. Stay tuned for a couple more 2015 highlights! #purpleswag #indulgenteats #americasbestbreakfasts
“The reason that gold leaf and Cristal were added was because I love all different champagnes,” ower Bjorn DelaCruz told First We Feast.
DelaCruz wanted to make something to celebrate the New Year and wasn’t expecting people to order so many. “But then again, it is New York, and there are people willing to put down a grand for a dozen donuts,” he said.
If you choose to try a $100 donut, DelaCruz will hand deliver it anywhere in the tristate area. “I understand you’re spending money on this. I want you to know it’s not just my assistant making these. I take pride in this, and to me it’s a piece of art.”
This isn’t the first $100 donut. Dolicious Donuts in British Columbia created a $100 donut of edible diamonds, 24 karat gold flakes, wine, and ‘luxury water’ brand Bling H20 to celebrate its re-opening in June.

Krispy Kreme created a $1000 donut in 2014, to celebrate National Donut Week.
Made from Dom Perignon, the donut was gilded in 24 karat gold leaf and dusted with 23 karat dust and edible diamonds. It also came with a free cocktail made with 500-year-old Courvoisier and 2002 Dom Perignon, so it was a bargain really.
