Spend on Most Expensive Foods in the World

Ever wondered what an expensive ice cream would be like? Or paying $12,000 for a pizza? Well, we have a good list of the most expensive foods in the world, that are likely to make a hole in your pocket just by thinking of eating them!

It is strange to believe that a basic necessity like food can burn an irreparable hole in your pocket. That eating something simple would actually cause a huge dent in your savings. For most of us, these expensive food items are simply out of reach. However, it would mean no harm to know what makes them so expensive.

Obviously, these are not the items that you would see on regular menu cards at street cafes or restaurants. It is the rarity of the ingredients and the intricate process of making these dishes make these food items the most expensive in the world.

Samundari Khazana

If the celebration has got to be grand, then Bombay Brasserie knows how to do it. A restaurant in London, it decided to celebrate the DVD release of Slumdog Millionaire in the biggest way it ever knew. So, they went ahead and cooked Devon crab with white truffle, and added half a tomato stuffed with Beluga caviar. If this was not enough, they garnished it with a gold leaf, four snails - abalone - and four hollowed quails' eggs which were generously filled with more caviar. And this is how the curry got it handsome price of £2,000!

Frozen Haute Chocolate Ice Cream Sundae

Stephen Bruce designed a grand ice cream treat with luxury jeweler Euphoria, in New York, for his restaurant Serendipity 3. But this ice cream treat isn't for everyone. It is made with a combination of 28 cocoas, 14 of which are exotic, and hence expensive. The extravaganza does not stop there. He went on to add 5 grams of edible 23-carat gold, topped it with a generous dollop of whipped cream covered with edible gold, and added some La Madeline au Truffle from Knipschildt Chocolatier to the side. The truffle used in the ice cream itself sells for $2,600 a pound. As if this bling wasn't shiny enough, Bruce designed a Harcourt crystal goblet, which is 18-carat gold and has a white diamond bracelet decorating its neck. The sundae is to be savored with a golden spoon, which has some more gold and chocolate diamonds! And of course, the price you ask? Well, it's $25,000 only! But there is a milder version of this sundae called the 'Golden Opulence', which is tagged at just $1,000.

Densuke Watermelon

It is logical that rare items are expensive. But then the term expensive, to this day, remains subjective, and you are soon about to find out how! Japan - where watermelons are awfully rare - took pricing to a whole new level. A 17-pound Japanese watermelon became a famous expensive watermelon, after it got priced at $6,300. Watermelons are grown in northern Japan, on an island called Hokkaido. These black watermelons are most often given as gifts, as they are extremely rare, and exquisite to taste. Wonder who is gifting them to whom, and for what occasion!
