We live in a world of extravagancies, gaudy homes, showy cars; much of the time we don't think twice about treating ourselves to these luxuries. But imagine paying hundreds, if not thousands of dollars for a meal, something that will only last as long as your appetite? Below you will find some of the world's top 10 most expensive dishes, sure to be much more appetizing than their price tag.
Wagyu Meat Pie
Restaurant: Fence Gate Inn, Lancashire, U.K.
Ingredient: 6lbs of Kobe beef, matsutake mushroom, truffles, 2 bottles of 1982 Chateau Mouton Rothschild wine, edible 23-carat gold leaf
This 16,000 pot pie, that's about $2,000 a slice, is anything but delicate. Considering its price tag, you would think this pie would be sophisticated and stuffed with diamonds; instead, it's quite the monstrosity of meat and mushrooms. Packed with nearly six pounds of Kobe beef, the price of this pie is also bolstered by the $910 per pound matsutake mushroom.
Ingredient: blond Belgian ale reduced down to one 33ml bottle, 55% alcohol content, juniper berries, mead, nettles, roadkill carcass
If the $800-1,100 price tag of this Belgian ale doesn't seem outrageous enough, perhaps the fact that the brewmasters packaged the bottles inside taxidermied squirrel carcasses will serve to up its opulence.
