What are millionaire foodies’ most over-the-top indulgences? How about a pizza that’s the price of a small diamond, a burger that would make a nice down payment on a car, or, how about a dessert that costs millions – literally, we are serious! Let’s take a look at these 5 most expensive foods on the planet:
The White Truffle and Gold Pizza at Margo’s – $2,420
Pizza, it’s one of the most classic dishes and Americans in particular can’t get enough of it. However, most Americans would probably go hungry before dishing out nearly two and a half grand on a pizza. You have to give it credit, though, it is a one-of-a-kind. The White Truffle and Gold Pizza at Margo’s in Malta features rare truffles sourced from Piemonte, 24k gold leaf, and organic water buffalo mozzarella (for the cheese lovers). But don’t just order on the fly when you get the late night munchies – all orders require a week’s notice.
The FleurBurger 5000 at Fleur in Las Vegas – $5,000
Enjoying the FleurBurger 5000 is a once-in-a-lifetime experience. Imagine, sinking your teeth into a delectable patty made of wagyu beef and foie gras, savoring the exquisite truffle sauce and shaved black truffles, and holding the soft brioche truffle bun in your hands like a delicate flower… That’s how we imagine it, anyway. And, to wash it down, it comes with a $2,500-dollar bottle of Chateau Petrus Bordeaux, circa 1995 and an uber-fancy Ichendorf glassware set.
The Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence – $14,500
One of the poshest desserts you could ever get your hands on is the Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence at the Fortress Resort and Spa in Sri Lanka. It’s sinfully sweet and sinfully expensive. You’ll probably want to take a million photos of it before digging in so have your camera ready…it looks oh-so stunning on the plate! So, what does it come with? A traditional Sicilian ice cream cake (Italian cassata) is flavored with Irish cream, mango and pomegranate and decorated with gold leaf and an 80-carat aquamarine gemstone! (They also throw in a chocolate carving of a stilt fisherman, just for good measure.)
Frrrozen “Haute” Chocolate at Serendipity 3 in N.Y.C. – $25,000
Perhaps one of the coolest ways to drop $25 grand and get a massive brain freeze is enjoying the Frrrozen “Haute” Chocolate at Serendipity 3. This frozen treat was named the world’s most expensive dessert in 2007 by Guinness World Records. It’s topped with five grams of 24-carat gold leaf flakes and La Madeline au Truffe shipped from France. The best thing about the dessert is, you won’t leave empty-handed as the spoon and goblet are yours to keep.
Strawberries at Arnaud’s in New Orleans – $9.8 Million
What is the most expensive food on the entire planet? The ultra frou-frou Strawberries at Arnaud’s in New Orleans! Once you get your money bag out, dig into a bowl of juicy Louisianna-grown strawberries, creamy French vanilla ice cream, mint, port-red wine sauce and whipped cream. Then, after you’ve savored the most luxurious dessert on the planet, slip on your 10.06-karat royal blue diamond from MS Rau Antiques in the French Quarter which also comes with it. Needless to say, it’s the ULTIMATE marriage proposal dessert. But what if you aren’t planning on getting hitched or don’t have 9 million to spend? Arnaud’s has a scaled down version (without the big huge diamond) for just $9.
