The Most Expensive Food in the World
As someone whose family is in the restaurant business, it amazes me to hear what many people think is an overpriced meal. Food costs have risen and so the restaurant must pass on that increase to the customer. On the other hand, there are some restaurants that take price hikes to a whole new level. For those foodies out there with a trust fund and a hankering to try the most expensive food in the world, you may want to check these restaurants out:
1) The Richest has a Faberge chocolate mousse as their most expensive food choice. They state,”For just $34,500 you could get your hands on a very fancy chocolate pudding created by Marc Guibert, the head chef of the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel. You’d have to travel all the way to Windermere, Cumbria, to get a taste, however.”
2) Mental Floss sites the decadent dessert at Serendipity in New York as the most expensive dessert. ” The Frrrozen Haute Chocolate ice cream sundae contains a blend of 28 cocoas, including 14 of the most expensive in the world. It is decorated with edible gold and served in a goblet lined with edible gold. As if all that weren’t enough, there is an 18 karat gold bracelet with 1 carat of diamonds in the bottom of the sundae, and the treat is served with a golden spoon decorated in white and chocolate diamonds, both of which go home with the diner.” Price : $25,000
3) The Cooking Channel lists “Hubert Keller’s FleurBurger 5000 is the crown jewel of the Vegas strip. This meaty powerhouse contains Wagyu beef, foie gras, shaved black truffles and truffle sauce. It’s served on a brioche truffle bun. Oh, yeah. It also costs $5,000.”
These are just a few of the off the charts expensive dishes available for those with the means and the passion to chase around the globe for ridiculously expensive dishes that will leave their belly full and their wallet lighter.
