Serendipity in Vegas

It occurred to me that I went on my fabulous trip to Vegas and never gave you guys any crazy stories after returning.
Besides the drunken debauchery , tiger in our hotel room and waking up in the desert without any pants... it was a hum drum trip.
The one amazing highlight I really want to share is my visit to



I fell in love with this cafe when the romantic comedy "Serendipity" came out back in 2001.
 It stars John Cusack and Kate Beckinsale and they meet and fall in love yadda yadda yadda and they stop for dessert at Serendipity.
I always thought that the only location was in New York.
But, I was wrong. There are 3 and one of them is in VEGAS. I shoulda known.
After all, what isn't in Vegas?!

Serendipity celebrated its fiftieth anniversary by introducing a record-breaking sundae, listed in the Guinness Book of World Records as the most expensive dessert, at $1000.


 It is made with 5 scoops of the Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, Madagascar vanilla covered in 23K edible gold leaf, drizzled with the world's most expensive chocolate, Amedei Porcelana, and covered with chunks of Chuao chocolate, which is from cocoa beans harvested by the Caribbean Sea on Venezuela's coast.

It is suffused with exotic candied fruits from Paris, gold dragets, truffles and Marzipan Cherries and topped with a tiny glass bowl of Grand Passion Caviar, an exclusive dessert caviar, made of salt-free American Golden caviar, known for its sparkling golden color. It's sweetened and infused with passion fruit, orange, and Armagnac. The sundae is served in a baccarat Harcourt crystal goblet with an 18K gold spoon, a petite mother of pearl spoon, and topped with a gilded sugar flower by Ron Ben-Israel.

WOW!

I didn't get that though.
My Bff Amy and I chose the  Deep Fried Oreo Sundae!
HEAVEN in a cup.

Amy and me ready to dig in


Some other menu options

(I want the Treasure Chest next time. A mere $88.00)

Besides the great desserts and frozen drinks they serve.
I was in love with the decor and basically the whole cafe'.
Check it out.
It's almost like wonderland.





*Icing on the ice cream. Andy Warhol was a fan, and I am a fan of him. Small world.*
