Manila Social Club, a Filipino restaurant in Wellington, Brooklyn makes these Ube donuts daily. They are made from purple yams which are pounded and mixed to form a purple jam. Customers say that it didn’t seem like they were eating a vegetable, which yam technically is.
If you’re around the area, you can purchase it for $ 3.50 per piece or $40.00 for a dozen.
If you think a 3-dollar piece of donut is on the expensive side, how about a $100 one?
This Golden Cristal Ube donut is made from Ube, champagne and 24 karat gold flakes! Talk about luxurious. They have been reportedly selling this for $1200 per dozen.

Aside from the Ube donut, they also have other desserts such as Ube and Durian pie.
