On the Lido di Jesolo, near Venice, there is a restaurant where you can enjoy pure 24-karat gold for lunch and dinner, reports Corriere della Sera. It is produced by the Romanians.
Pizza “Mimi La Regina d’Oro 24K” from restaurant “Da Robert” is made with mozzarella, tomato sauce, 200 grams of burrata di bufala, basil leaves and gold flakes, 100% edible. 99 euros.
“Customers are having a moment of glory,” explains Robert Nedea, restaurant owner.
“Gold is the only pure metal that is edible and has always been a symbol of strength. Even eating it makes you feel strong, strong,” he added.
The idea of making pizza with gold was suggested to Robert by his son, Alessandro.
“In a restaurant in Dubai, they sprinkle steak with gold and sell it for a thousand dollars. We should do this to pizza too!” recommended his son.
Robert took the idea very seriously, and the results were visible. Between four and five customers a week order the most expensive dish on the menu.
“Last week I sold five in one night! They are usually foreign tourists, but also local businessmen and young people who want to exaggerate. Those who buy pizza with gold do it to impress the people at the table or our waiter, leaving a tip of at least 25 euros. They also usually order a bottle of champagne too,” explained the pizzeria.
Each pizza is served with the song “We Are the Champions”, as a restaurant ritual.
“If the customer accepts, we announce to the rest of the restaurant that they have ordered it,” said the Romanian.
