Here’s Where To Find This Secret Menu Golden Pizza

A day at the museum can make anybody pretty hungry. Just standing there for hours pondering the themes and messages artists are trying to convey through hundreds of mediums can leave our stomaches rumbling so loud, we’re sure to get shushed.

Ray’s and Stark Bar, located on the premises of the Los Angeles County Museum of Art, has a pretty extravagant secret: a gold pizza.

Relax, King Midas. This pizza isn’t made of solid gold and you’ll definitely enjoy it.

Created by executive chef Fernando Darin, the off-menu item features a few decadent variants to traditional pizza ingredients. A main component to it is Sottocenere – a truffled cheese from Italy, burrata, and edible gold flakes.

The idea behind the pizza, according to Chef Darin, was to take something simple and traditional and transform it into something chic and luxurious.

Reach Guinto, Foodbeast managing editor, got to try a few slices himself. Here’s what he thought of the gold pizza:

It was a kind of gooey and melty that was luxurious. I immediately knew my tongue was in the driver’s seat of a Rolls Royce with this special kind of cheese pizza.

Next time you’re visiting the LACMA, or you’re feeling peckish and in the area, perhaps you can indulge your inner royalty just a bit and give this secret menu pizza a shot.

L.A. Cocktail Bar Unveils $500 Gold-Flaked Milkshake, For Peasants

milkshake

For all its fancy cars and coveted zip codes, Los Angeles still has a lot to learn about the luxury dessert game. A new cocktail bar in Hollywood called the Powder Room is generating a lot of hype for selling a $500 milkshake made with edible gold and Belgian chocolate and featuring a takeaway Swarovski Crystal ring.

Yawwwwwn.

The “Grand Opulence” from Serendipity 3 in New York already doubles that price tag and comes with a crystal goblet. Connecticut’s Knipschildt Chocolatier’s “Frrrozen Haute Chocolate” ($25,000) is made with gold foil and truffle shavings. Don’t even get us started on Japan’s $5 M diamond chocolate cake.

So nice try, Powder Room. You’ve managed to create a decadent dessert for the peons. Call us when your milkshake brings Tony Stark to our yard, mmkay?

Bacon is an indulgence to anyone who isn’t Epic Meal Time. It’s delicious, but you can’t eat it every day or you’d die. So why not give the occasion of bacon-eating all the pomp and circumstance it deserves by dipping it in dark chocolate and sprinkling it with 23k edible gold flakes? It’s only right.

You want to eat bacon with breakfast? Pish-posh! This sh*t is worthy of a gala-affair.

Now if only we could make it with pot pigs.

23k Gold Bacon is now available for pre-order, $40 for one “pack,” $100 for 3 @ Baconery.
