10 of the Most Expensive Dishes in the World.

Hamburger, Burger, Barbeque, Bbq, BeefWhere I am, we talk about how expensive it can be living in the bush of Alaska where Bananas can cost between $1.00 and $1.50 each, or Cherries can be $8.00 per pound and a hamburger can run in the neighborhood of $25.00 and that does not usually include the French fries.

The $25 price in no way compares with the cost of the most expensive hamburger in the world.  Imagine paying $295 for a burger in New York City or $666 for a burger from a food truck.  The second burger is made of Kobe beef, fois gras, and gold leaf all covered in caviar, lobster, truffles, cheese melted in a champagne steam, and topped with a BBQ sauce made with a rare coffee.  If you want a burger that is even more expensive, you can buy one for $5000 made out of Wagyu beef and fois gras topped with a truffle sauce and shaved black truffles.  A bottle wine accounts for half of the cost.

If you want, you can finish your meal with a frozen chocolate sundae.  The ice cream is made of 28 different types of cocoa including 14 of the most expensive, decorated in edible gold and served in a glass lined with edible gold.  At the bottom, you will find an 18 carat gold bracelet with a one carat diamond and a spoon made of gold with white and chocolate diamonds all for the wonderful price of 25,000.  Yes you get to keep  the bracelet, and the spoon.

For people not into hamburgers, its possible to buy a curry made of Devon crab, white truffle, Baluga caviar, a gold coated Scottish lobster, abalone, eggs, and more gold leaf.  This dish is found in London and can be purchased for just over $3000.

There is main dish you could have instead of curry.  It is a meat pie made of Wagyu beef, matsutake mushrooms,  winter black truffles, blue foot mushrooms, accompanied with a gravy made with two bottles of expensive 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild wine and the crust is covered in edible gold leaf.  The whole pie costs over $14,250 but you can buy a piece for just over $1700.

If you prefer something a bit more down to earth and less expensive, head over to Malta for a pizza topped with up to 100 grams of white truffles and gold leaf but the money from this dish is donated to charity.  The restaurant also requires at least a one week notice to make it.

Prefer something even more basic?  Head over to Sacramento for a hot dog that will only set you back just over $145.  What makes this so expensive is the Swedish moose cheese added to the apple smoked uncured bacon, greens, French mustard, a garlic and herb mayo, tomato, a balsamic vinegar dressing served on a herb focaccia with truffle butter.

Are you a Sushi lover?  You can spend almost $2000 for five pieces of it.  Each piece is wrapped in gold leaf, topped with three pearls, and one diamond.  I think the gold, pearls, and diamonds is responsible for the cost.

How about taking home a 15 pound ham from Sefridges in London.  For just over $2,600 you get the ham from a pig fed only on acorns and roots, then cured for three years before being packed in a hand made wooden box covered with a hand sewn apron and each box includes a DNA certificate, just so you know its real.

Some time in the future, I'll write on the most expensive ingredients in the world.  I hope you enjoyed learning more about the most expensive dishes in the world.  Let me know what you think, I'd love to hear.  Have a great day.
