Page 1 2
Hungry? Rich? Well, then these are the meals for you. Sure in today's economy most people want to get as much grub for their buck as possible. However, there are still the few, and the insanely loaded who won't blink twice at the $1000 dinner bill tucked inside the leather-bound receipt jacket the server so graciously leaves on the corner of the table. The frugal they are not. Here are the World's Most Expensive Meals.
The Golden Eggs
For those who think breakfast is the most important meal of the day consider this: the $1000 omelet. Oh yes, it exists and it can be found on Norma's Menu, a restaurant of Le Parker Meridien Hotel. This treasure is located on West 57th Street in Manhattan. Norma's offers its patrons an array of gourmet dishes but the $1000 Frittata is by far the most expensive. This pricey dish consists of six eggs, fresh Atlantic lobster, 10 ounces of imported caviar, which by the way is around $80 by itself, chopped chives, butter and heavy cream. The omelet is said to be delicious and worth just about every penny, but for the rest of us working men, an Egg McMuffin may do just fine.
Thousand Dollar Feet
For those of you with a fancier palate, you would probably appreciate eating feet - duck's feet that is. For a mere $1380 per kilogram or $138 for 100 grams you can dine on duck's feet. Australia is the home to these delectable webbed tootsies. So on your next voyage to the land down under, visit the Cantonese restaurant, Silks in the posh Melbourne suburb of Southbank. This delicacy is prepared with the webbing still intact covered in a light brown sauce with a side of bok choy. This gourmet treat will probably be the only time you will be able to stomach eating feet. The price alone will make this feast quite a memorable experience.
Hundreds of Dollars Worth of Beef
Tokyo wins when it comes to serving up the beef. Japan, known for their melt in your mouth Kobe beef is home to the restaurant that specializes in plating this rarity. Aragawa Steak House in Tokyo's Shinbashi district offers the finest cuts of Kobe beef for a hefty $277, or •1,672 as noted on their menu. The dish arrives at your table in all its juicy goodness. For that price, you may expect to get a side dish of rice or salad greens to accompany this succulent cut of beef. But don't even think about it. It is considered a crime against food if this choice beef is served with anything other than a bit of mustard and some black pepper. I guess you could ask for their finest sake to complement the taste but if you are on a budget than just stick with the beef. Ah, all in the name of gourmand!
