10 Of The World’s Most Expensive Foods

1. Grand Velas Taco – $25,000

Most Expensive Foods

Sure, you read that right. This food costs an amazing $25,000. It can be hard to imagine what could be special about a meal that costs as much as $25,000, a Taco, no less; but you should know this is no ordinary taco, certainly not something you would find on the menu list of Taco Bell.

It is exclusively sold in Mexico at the Grand Velas Los Cabos and it is a taco made up of the best of everything and more. It contains chopped Kobe beef, the finest langoustine you can imagine, Beluga caviar and black truffle cheese. On top of all these premium set of ingredients are gold leaves and edible flower petals sprinkled on top to give this not just the perfect Instagram look, but also a delicious and expensive taste.

The taco is also served with salsa made out of selected dried chilies, and while you ingest every bite, you will be able to wash it down with a rare bottle of tequila and a cup of civet coffee. Do you see why it is the most expensive food in the world now? Because we do.

2.   The Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence – $14,500

The Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence

For many people, they would prefer to put a loose $15 thousand towards their student debt or their retirement savings, with a little less than $50 going towards a nice day out for food, but when you are rich, another person’s major retirement cash is your bill at The Fortress Resort and Spa in Sri Lanka, where this $14,500 meal is served.

The meal, which consists of Italian cassata, Irish cream, pomegranate, and compote is only made on special request, within 24 hours at the resort. Apart from the aforementioned ingredients, this luxurious food also has a champagne sabayon base that is embedded with an 80-carat aquamarine stone, all underneath a handcrafted chocolate stilt fisherman.

We don’t even know what that means; but to enjoy it, you will need to splash almost $15,000, making this the second most expensive food in the world. That is a whole lot more than we pay for dessert at our local restaurant.

3.  Louis XIII Pizza – $12,700

Most Expensive Foods

We all love pizza, from the wealthy, famous and powerful, to the economically challenged; the fact that we all love and eat the same cheap pizzas all over the world might provide temporary comfort, that is, until you learn of the existence of the Louis XIII Pizza which cost as much as a college tuition at just over $9000.

The Louis XIII Pizza is the product of Renato Viola, a master pizza chef in Salerno, Italy and it offers a whole lot more than the priciest offerings of Dominos or Pizza Hut.

While a pizza being made specially by a renowned pizza chef would certainly offer more in quality than the commercial offerings of pizza chains, the Louis XIII pizza goes a step further with the addition of sophisticated toppings like lobster, mozzarella di bufala Campana, and caviar, all of which are flown from different parts of the world.

Complimentary to this amazing pizza is a Remy Martin Cognac Louis XIII and Champagne Krug Clos du Mesnil 1995 which explains why this is an appropriately named food because it is befitting of a king.

4.  The Posh Pie – $12,000

The Posh Pie

Do you love pie? We imagine your answer is yes, but do you love it enough to spend $12,000 for one? We will leave the answer up to you.

The Lord Dudley Hotel in Sydney, Australia puts everyone’s love for a pie to the test with his $12,000 pie that is filled with so many calories, that going Dutch with a couple of friends seems like the healthy and financially wise way to enjoy this meal.

Compared to other meals on this list which are mostly designed to serve one person, the Posh Pie is meant, at least we hope, to serve a couple of people. In return for their $12,000, they will be getting a pie that contains rare winter black truffles, two whole lobsters, and two different cuts of premium beef.

In addition to the aforementioned extravagance are gold leaves and two bottles of red wine that costs more than €400 each. It is certainly worth trying on your next group vacation to Sydney.

So, why would popcorn cost this much? Well, this particular one is made out of Vermont Creamery butter, Nielsen Massey Bourbon vanilla as well as the world’s most expensive salt.
