For the majority of us, food shopping is all about getting a good deal. We stroll down the aisles hoping that our favorite items are on sale, and we look up menus online in advance so we know what sort of prices we can expect when we go out to eat. The foods listed below go against all of that. Check out some of the most outrageously priced foods we have ever come across.
The Douche Burger - $666.00
This outrageously priced burger comes from the New York City food truck, 666 Burger. This burger is made of wagyu beef filled with foie gras and covered in gold leaf. It is topped with cave aged Gruyere cheese, truffle butter, caviar lobster, and a kopi luwak barbecue sauce. It is then steamed in champagne, and served wrapped in three $100 bills. Why the strange name? Well, because they say you are what you eat…
The Haute Dog - $69.00
Although this seems like pennies when compared to the Douche Burger, would you be willing to pay $69.00 for a hot dog? If you are, then head over to Serendipity 3 in New York City for the Haute Dog. This pricey snack is made up of a twelve-inch long pure beef frankfurter that is grilled in white truffle oil. It is then placed in a salted-pretzel bun imported from Germany that has been slathered with white truffle butter. To top it off, they add duck foie gras with black truffles, caramelized Vidalia onions, heirloom tomato ketchup, and Dijon mustard with more, you guessed it, black truffles.
The Golden Opulence Sundae - $1,000.00
Out of all the outrageously priced foods we have come across in our travels, the Golden Opulence Sundae, also from Serendipity 3, takes the cake. Tahitian vanilla ice cream is infused with Madagascar vanilla beans and served in a Baccarat crystal goblet. The ice cream is then covered in edible 24kt gold, Amedei Porcelana chocolate, candied fruits, gold covered almonds, passion fruit and Armagnac dessert caviar, and a handmade artisanal flower made from sugar and dipped in gold.
So tell us, if you were going to splurge, which one would you choose?
