10) Matsutake or Mattake Mushrooms – $1,000
9) The Bagel at Hotel Westin, NYC – $1,000
8) The Zillion-Dollar Frittata with Lobster – $1,000
Omelettes are perhaps the easiest things to cook, but Le Parker Meridien Hotel’s Noma in NYC found a way to upgrade the humble dish; by adding Sevruga cavier and lobster claws to six eggs. There is also a less pricier version of the dish with less caviar which still costs $100. That’s still very expensive from an omelette, if you ask us. Noma has closed down since then, so unfortunately, we will never be able to savour the same frittata again.
7) Wagyu Ribeye Steak – $2,800
6) Samundari Khazana Curry from Bombay Brassiere – $3,200
At $3,200, the dish is aptly worded in Hindi to mean ‘Treasures from the Sea’. It has Devon crab, white truffle, Beluga caviar in gold leaf, Scottish lobster (gold coated, nonetheless), quail eggs filled with more caviar and abalones. We thought the list would never end!
5) Pizza Royale 007 by Domenico Crolla – $4,200
4) Densuke Black Watermelon – $6,100
3) Yubari King Melons – $22,872
2) Almas Caviar – $25,000
1) Italian White Truffle (Alba) – $160,406
As we know, truffles are expensive, but none more expensive than the white alba version rom Italy. These truffles are very difficult to cultivate, which would explain the huge price tag. Once, a large piece of white alba truffle, weighing 3.33 lbs, was auctioned off and bought by a gentleman from Hong Kong for $160,000.
Now that we have revealed the most priciest food available to man, which ones will you want to try out first?
