A New York restaurant is taking the gold standard to a new level.

The restaurant, located in Brooklyn, is selling a $100 donut. It is flavored with champagne, filled with Ube (a purple yam) and mousse.

The confection is then topped off with 24-karat gold flecks. It's named the "Golden Cristal Ube Donut." It was originally created as a limited-edition special, but it became so popular the owner of the shop decided to make it a permanent menu item.
