The Most Expensive Meals in the World

Edible gold, lobster pizza and limited edition bagels!

Every cloud has a silver lining but have you heard about food with a gold lining? The Food Mobile Application Dishpal (available for iPhone and iPad) has determined some of the most luxurious and expensive meals / dishes in the world.

The most expensive dish was cultivated by the Fence Gate Inn in Lancashire, U.K. The exquisite meat-pie is filled with Kobe beef and truffles, marinated in two bottles of 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild and garnished with divine edible 23-carat gold. This refined British classic will set you back $16,000 for the whole pie, or $2,000 a slice.

Bagels are the American classic but till now they have had little to do with culinary luxury or so you would think. The New York’s Westin Hotel Chef on Times Square created a limited edition bagel deluxe for $1,000 and more, stuffed with white truffle cream cheese with goji berry-infused Riesling jelly, topped with exclusive gold leaves.

The hot dog that holds the Guinness world record as the most expensive hot dog is the Ultra-Dog found in Capitol Dawg, Sacramento.  $150 will buy you a hot dog made with beef frank, moose cheese, smoked maple bacon, Italian white truffle butter on a focaccia roll. The luxury version of the Italian favourite Pizza is topped with delicious lobster, caviar, eight different cheeses and hand-picked Australian river salt from Italy for the equally exclusive price of $12,000. Those who prefer a spicy taste will enjoy the Samundari Khazana Seafood Curry from the Bombay Brasserie in London. The spicy curry is made with Devon crab, Scottish lobster, white truffle shavings, edible gold leaf and Beluga caviar. This splendid curry was ironically created for the release of the movie Slumdog Millionaire.

If you still have room for dessert the Golden Opulence Sundae from Serendipity 3 in New York City will top off your luxurious menu for $1000 with a fusion of chocolate cocoa beans, cherry marzipan, passion caviar, Tahitian vanilla bean ice-cream garnished with divine Parisian candied fruits.
