Every now and then, I love posting food posts on my blog to share the yummy food or the pretty presentation of what I have experienced and enjoyed. Trust my, my grassroot eating can be enjoyed by anyone, but not the following foods, which are considered the most expensive foods in the world, as reported from the Vancouver Sun.
I love eating and indulging every now and then, but this is too extreme isn’t it? Even if money is not an issue, would you pay $5000 CAD for a burger, $10000 CAD for a sundae, or $50000 CAD for caviar?
So what are the expensive foods? Apparently just typical burgers, sandwiches, and desserts adding “rare” and “expensive” ingredients:
- The FleurBurger 5000 is a $5,000 Kobe beef burger that’s topped with black truffles and foie gras, and served on a brioche truffle bun with a special truffle sauce
- The world’s most expensive bagel will set you back $1,000. It’s topped with white truffle cream cheese and goji berry-infused Riesling jelly with golden leaves
- Caviar is the world’s most expensive food by weight (truffles are second), and the most expensive is called Almas, from a type of Iranian beluga. Almas comes from sturgeons that are between 60 and 100 years old, and a 3.9-pound container will set you back $48,750.
- The Grand Opulence Sundae is made with Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream covered in 23-karat edible gold leaf and Amedei Porcelana, the world’s most expensive chocolate. Stuffed with gold dragees and truffles, and topped with dessert caviar, this confection can be yours for $1,000.
- The Luxury Pizza, a 12-incher seems like such a bargain at $1,000 (or $125 a slice) because you’ll actually get full from it. Give 24 hours’ notice because there are six types of caviar that need to be specially ordered for it.
- For $200, you can get a one pound-plus club sandwich made of the best ingredients including Iberico ham cured for 30 months, quail eggs, white truffles, semi-dried Italian tomatoes, and 24-hour fermented sourdough bread.
- The ‘Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata,’ omelette is an egg concoction that only costs $1,000. And what a feast you’ll get: A gigantic frittata stacked with caviar and an entire lobster inside. For those pinching pennies, a smaller version is available for $100
- The most expensive food ever? That would be the Japanese fruitcake that was encrusted with 223 small diamonds, which sold for $1.6 million in 2005. The cake, part of an exhibit called Diamonds: Nature’s Miracle, took a Tokyo pastry chef six months to design and one month to create
