Most Expensive Dishes in the World

There are some people on this planet who are willing to spend extraordinary sums of money in order to feast on what they perceive to be the best food that money can buy. They are not happy with chomping down on any old food, they want to prestige of being able to lay claim to spending extortionate amounts of cash on a single meal. There’s a saying that goes “build it and they will come.” Perhaps another phrase should be “cook it and someone will pay whatever you want to charge for it.” Here are some of the most expensive dishes that money can buy. Would you be prepared to shell out this much money to satisfy your hunger pangs?

At the Grand Velas Los Cabos Resort in Mexico you will need a platinum credit card, or at least untold wealth, if you want to try the most expensive item available, which happens to be a taco. Yes, a taco, but one that costs and incredible $25,000! Head to the Frida restaurant with $25,000 in your back pocket and you’ll be able to chow down on a taco containing Kobe beef, Almas beluga caviar, black truffle brie cheese, langoustine, Ley .925 anejo tequila and flurry of edible gold flake in the garnish and corn tortilla.

If paying $25,000 for a taco isn’t affordable to you, what about a $2,000 pizza? Available at the Industry Kitchen in New York, this wood-fired thin crust pizza needs to be ordered two days in advance otherwise you’ll have to find something else to spend $2,000 on. If you do preorder, your pizza will arrive with edible flower petals, Osetra caviar, French truffles, foie gras, white Stilton and more sheets of gold flake than you could shake a stick at. Still looking to blow your money on an extraordinary dish? Then how about a $777 burger? While it isn’t the world’s most expensive burger, that award goes to the $5,000 352-kilogram monster available to Juicy Foods in Carvallis, USA, this $777 burger is available at the Burger Brasseries in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Put up your cash and you’ll receive a fresh bun baked with ages parmesan cheese, a drizzle of 100-year balsamic vinegar, of course there is Kobe beef but there is also Maine lobster and a whole lot of different garnishes. Perhaps you could reduce the cost by turning down the bottle of Dom Perignon Rose that comes with this meaty treat? One place in the world you can spend crazy sums of cash on food is Serendipity 3 in New York. This restaurant has created a $200 grilled cheese sandwich, a $1,000 ice cream, although that comes with caviar and a crystal bowl you can take home after, and in 2007 it made a $25,000 dessert call the “Frozen Haute Chocolate.”

This wallet-damaging sweet came with a diamond encrusted gold bracelet wrapped around the base of the bowl while the frozen chocolate dessert featured a blend of 28 cocoas from around the world, including 14 of the most expensive and exotic available.
