Some people wrap their wrists and necks with gold and diamonds – aka, Bling. Others spend their money on fast cars and fine homes. But only the richest of the rich will eat what most make in a year – just in one meal! The following foods and meals are the most expensive in the world, and bring a new definition to “fine dining”.
Sweet Surrender Cupcakes
Nowhere in the world will you find a better – and more expensive – cupcake than you will right here. These cupcakes are made from the very rare Venezuelan Porcelana’s chocolate beans, and are topped with Tahitian vanilla caviar and topped edible gold flakes. Price: $750 each.
Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata
This here is essentially the world’s most expensive omelet. It’s a pound of lobster covered in egg and fried potatoes, topped with 10 ounces of caviar. While the name says “Zillion”, it only costs $1,000. Only.
Win big on your next trip to Vegas, and you’ve got to try the Fleur Burger. It’s a Kobe beef burger (the world’s most expensive meat), topped with foie gras and truffles served on a brioche bun. Price: $5,000.
Fortress Resort Fruit Compote
The Fortress Resort & Spa in Sri Lanka serves a dessert for the highest of high rollers. It’s a fruit compote, Dom Perignon champagne base in a chocolate carved glass. Price: $14,500.
Lindeth Howe Pudding
Served at the Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in England, this Faberge egg shaped pudding is made with the richest chocolate, gold leaf champagne, caviar and topped with diamonds. Price: $35,000
Domenico Crolla’s Pizza
Nicknamed “Pizza Royale 007”, it’s a combination of Scottish smoked salmon, vintage balsamic vinegar, venison medallions, caviar soaked in Dom Perignon, topped with the finest proscitto. Price: $4,200.
Densuke Black Watermelon
There are over 1200 different varieties of watermelon. So what makes this black one so expensive? Only 10,000 are grown and harvested in Japan. Price: $6,100
Yubari King Melons
These melons are like no other. They’re grown in the Japanese city of Yubari, Hokkaido, and are a hybrid between Earl’s favorite and Burpee’s Cantaloupe. In 2008, two were auctioned off for $22,872
Caviar (fish eggs) are hard to cultivate, thus the high price tag. But these one from Iran names “Almas” – which actually means diamond – costs about as much as a precious gem. Just one serving costs $25,000.
Italian White Alba Truffle
Truffles are very hard to cultivate. That’s why they cost so much. But these white ones grown in Italy sold at an auction for $160,406 for just 1.51kg worth of it.
