KU De Ta has introduced possibly the most expensive meal in Perth.
From December 1-24, diners can pay $1500 for a pearl inspired three-course meal for two that includes a ‘Kimberley Lily’ lariat pendant (9ct yellow, rose or white gold) from Cygnet Bay Pearls with $600 going to Save the Children.
The entree is pearl cerviche with cauliflower, sweet almonds and bonita, while the main course includes fried pearl meat.
But the dessert is the highlight, with the ice-cream served as a giant pearl finished with cooking glitter and lychees.
There is also a Mabe cocktail that is not for the faint hearted containing pink shinju, Australian sake, vodka and Maidenii vermouth.
For $240, the cocktail comes with a Cygnet Bay Pearls half pearl Mabe pendant with Save the Children branding on the back on a sterling silver chain.
At yesterday’s launch, Cygnet Bay Pearls managing director James Brown told how he travelled from his pearl farm 220km north of Broome to Perth with the pearl meat that Ku De Ta chefs would cook with.
He said Cygnet Bay Pearls, Save the Children and Ku De Ta shared a common outlook – “quality, vision and commitment”.
