Expensive Food

The Most Expensive Food In The World

If you ever find yourself in a Brewster’s Millions situation and have to burn through a fortune in a hurry, then all you need are this article, a few plane tickets and an empty stomach.

The £1,500 pizza: Industry Kitchen, New York

Assuming it takes you 40 bites to consume the entire, $2,000 (£1,540) pizza at Industry Kitchen in Manhattan’s South Street Seaport neighbourhood, you’ll be paying $50 per bite.

The £600 burger: Burger Brasserie, Las Vegas

Although the Guinness World Record for most expensive burger goes to a £3,800 meat monster created by Juicy’s Outlaw Grill in Corvallis, Oregon, its 350-kilo weight makes it suitable only for the likes of Godzilla.

The £130 hot dog: Tokyo Dog, Seattle

Available by pre-ordering a minimum of two weeks in advance, Tokyo Dog’s $169 (£130) Juuni Ban dog furthers the restaurant’s focus on Japanese flavours by topping a foot-long smoked cheese bratwurst on a brioche bun with slices of wagyu beef, teriyaki-grilled onions, maitake mushrooms, foie gras, shaved black truffles, caviar, and Japanese mayonnaise.

The £19,000 taco: Grand Velas Los Cabos Resort, Mexico


It’s not a headline-making dish unless gold flakes and caviar are involved, and the world’s most expensive taco doesn’t disappoint. Available from the Frida restaurant at this five-star resort on Mexico’s Pacific coast, the $25,000 (£19,300) taco features Kobe beef, langoustine, Almas beluga caviar (the most expensive in the world), black truffle brie cheese, and a salsa of dried Morita chile peppers, civet coffee, and Ley .925 añejo tequila.

The £1,500 cronut: Dum Dum Donutterie, London

Is it a doughnut or a croissant? It’s both, kind of, and costs £1,500. This luxury version of the “Cronut,” called a “Cro” by Dum Dum Donutterie in London, is made of saffron-infused black-and-white croissant dough created with Tahitian gold vanilla beans and Amedei Porcelana chocolate.

The Samundari Khazana (meaning “seafood treasure”) – £2000

Curry has been firmly cemented as the UK’s favourite dish for years now, and we have to say, the choice of dishes is mind boggling.

The Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata – $1000

Ever since school, when the made-up numbers like zillion and squillion come out to describe something, you know it’s going to be good. While the Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata from Norma’s in New York might ‘only’ be $1000, for that you get 10 ounces of the finest sevruga caviar and a pound of lobster.

Chef Angelito Araneta Jr. Sushi – £1313.88

While most of the high ticket menu items have featured in the major dining cities of the world, to get access to the sushi crown jewels, you’ll have to hop on a plane to the Philippines.

Louis XIII Pizza – $12,000

Most people will agree that ordering pizza in is awesome, but a bit of a rip off. A large pepperoni will set you back about £17, and it’s often late.

The Most Expensive Bagel $1,000

Executive Chef Frank Tujague topped the most expensive bagel with white truffle cream cheese and goji berry-infused Riesling jelly and gold leaf.

The Most Expensive Ramen $110 per bowl

This isn’t the ramen you snacked on during your college days. Owner/chef Shoichi Fujimaki opens the doors to his menu-less, reservation-only restaurant to those who have already dined at one of his other restaurants.
