The culinary world of the rich and famous is fascinating, in regards to the entrees, drinks, desserts, and of course, the outrageous prices. As culinary explorers, join us on an epic journey through some of the world’s most expensive entrée, beverage and dessert items. It is nothing but the best for our fans.
• $1,000 Omelet
• $5,000 Caviar
• $350-$500 Entrees
• $370 Kobe Beef
• $225 Luxury Pizza
• $1,000 Sundae
• $2,600 Chocolate
• $1,500 Champagne
• $38,000 Whiskey
• $16.75 per ounce Mineral Water
1. Our first stop is the $1,000 omelet. This is the most expensive omelet in the world, and can be invested in at the Le Parker Meridien Restaurant in New York. So what makes an omelet marketable at a cool $1,000? Glad you asked. This is a luxury omelet of supreme magnitude-boasting 10 ounces of sevruga caviar, an entire lobster, and six eggs. This outrageous omelet also comes with the option to enjoy it at home, for the discounted rate of $700. For $700 we better be indulging in this omelet James Bond style, in an Aston Martin rental with Heidi Klum-clothing optional.
2. Up next is the most expensive caviar in the world-Almas caviar. The word “almas” is Iranian for “diamond”. This luxury caviar comes from a fish over 100 years old, virtually unchanged for 120 million years. This Beluga caviar is the oldest survivor of the dinosaur era and is upwards of $5,000 per kilogram in the United States. We wonder how much it would cost to upgrade the $1,000 omelet with this caviar.
3. If you find yourself in New York with the urge to lighten your wallet, stop by Masa restaurant. This diminutive luxury restaurant seats 26 and features a pre-fixed menu ranging from $350 to $500 per person, sans alcohol. The menu is revamped frequently, but always includes 5 appetizers, a sushi entrée with up to 20 types of fresh seafood imported directly from Japan and a dessert course served with tea.
4. Another of Japan’s culinary treasures is located at Aragawa in Tokyo. Dinner for one at this lush Japanese steakhouse is about $370. The star of the menu here is hand-fed authentic Japanese Kobe beef, supplied from a nearby farm for superior freshness. The dress code is formal, and the atmosphere is luxurious.
5. For a more relaxed yet still outrageously expensive approach to dinner, you can try the most expensive pizza in Italy for just $225. This luxury pie has a diameter of 20cm and is layered with generous toppings of caviar and lobster, then covered with Louis XIII Remy Martin cognac. What can we say, this is definitely not DiGiorno.
6. Now for the sweet stuff. A sweet tooth can be very expensive at Serendipity 3 in the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Here you can order the $1,000 sundae, which has graced the Guinness Book of World Records as the most expensive dessert. It is comprised of 5 scoops of the richest Tahitian vanilla bean ice cream, Madagascar vanilla, 23K edible gold leaf and Amedei Porceleana chocolate, which is one of the priciest chocolate varieties in the world. We hope it is served with a golden spoon, if so we will take three.
7. Speaking of expensive chocolate, coming in at #7 is Chocopologie by Knipschildt. This mouth-watering luxury chocolate is yours for $2,600 per pound. It is available only by special order, and is a black truffle with 70% Valrhona cacao. This is not something to hand out to trick-or-treaters.
8. All this talk about expensive entrees and desserts has made us thirsty. Among the most expensive champagne is Perrier Jouet Belle Epoque Blanc de Blanc (what a mouthful), at $1,500 per bottle. This luxury champagne is made of specialty grapes, and features hand-painted bottles.
9. Not a champers fan? No problem, there are plenty of expensive liquors available. For just $38,000, you can enjoy a fine whiskey-the Macallan Fine Rare Vintage. There are only 85 bottles in the world, and it is aged 30 years. This still does not compare to the $1.3 million dollar Russo-Baltique vodka.
10. Lastly, for the non-drinkers, you can still be an expensive date if you please, just order Kona Nigari water from the deep seas of Hawaii, at $16.75 per ounce, this desalinated water contains rich minerals to sustain health and reduce the risk of overloaded bank accounts.
