For some people, a few bucks for a fast-food meal is considered pricey. However, not everyone has to worry about tightening their purse strings when it comes to dining. They’re free to spend as much money as they want on food, which is why some dishes sell for thousands of dollars. The question is, would you pay this much for any of these meals?
The clue is in the name with this dish, with the 5,000 alluding to the $5,000 price tag that accompanies this burger. It’s available at Fleur by Hubert Keller, a restaurant in Las Vegas where mouthwatering dishes are the specialty. The burger itself is made of Wagyu beef and combines with foie gras and truffle to really drive your taste buds wild. This is one meal we wish we could afford to eat.
Beluga’s Almas caviar
Caviar is one of those foods that’s always associated with the wealthy and elite, so it makes sense that it’s one of the most expensive dishes out there. Roughly 250 grams of Almas caviar would set you back $9884 if you were to order it at Dubai’s caviar-dedicated restaurant, Beluga. That definitely isn’t cheap, but given this caviar is the rarest of its kind, we can’t say we’re surprised.
Louis XIII pizza
What ingredients would you need on a pizza to consider handing over $12,000? Renato Viola believed that the answer involved three types of caviar, Norwegian lobster, and seven varieties of cheese. We’re not sure if those toppings would have us paying such a hefty price, but anyone who disagrees can try the Louis XIII pizza for themselves in Salerno, Italy. Perhaps the expensive cost also comes from the fact that the dough takes 72 hours to rise before it can be cooked.
Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence
We understand paying a lot of money for dessert because, let’s face it, the sweet section is usually the best part of the menu. However, we’re not sure if we’d ever go so far as paying what the Fortress Resort asks for their luxury dessert. This Sri Lankan dish features a chocolate fisherman on a stilt next to an Italian cassata topped with a mango and pomegranate compote. There’s also some gold leaf and even an 80-carat aquamarine stone because gems typically go well with dessert. How much does all this cost? $14,500!
Grand Velas taco
We love a good taco, but we’re not sure if $25,000 is a reasonable price to pay for one. Obviously, this dish isn’t like the kind that you can buy at Taco Bell because it features a mixture of caviar, Kobe beef, and black truffle brie cheese. That’s all served together in a gold flake-infused tortilla, because why wouldn’t it be? This luxury taco is available at the Grand Velas Los Cabos Resort in Mexico for anyone with a spare $25,000 lying around.
We always knew that the rich and famous dined like kings and queens. However, now we know exactly what it is they’ve been feasting on.
