World’s Top 10 Most Expensive Foods

Food is daily eaten to provide nutritional support for the body. And if you are a kind of person who loves delicious foods, why not try following most expensive foods in the world some day? They are all made of luxurious ingredients from all over continents. Let’s discover the names of top ten most costly foods.

Italian White Alba Truffle – $160,406/1.5 kilos

 
Expensive truffles are notoriously pricey because they are difficult to cultivate. So they are called the king of all fungi. The Associate Press reported that a real estate investor and his wife from Hong Kong have paid €125,000 ($160,406 USD) for a gigantic Italian White Alba truffle which weighs about 1.51 kilograms.

Almas Caviar – $25,000/kilos

 
Almas caviar, which is extremely rare and expensive, comes from Iran. Almas means diamond in Iran. Eggs are taken from white sturgeons which are over hundreds of years old. Therefore, it is not hard to understand in English Almas caviar is sold for about $25,000/ kilo.

Yubari Melons – $22,872/ pair


Regardless of the quality, a pair of Yubari melons is the world’s most expensive cantaloupes because they were the first auction of the 2008 season in Japan.

Dansuke Watermelon – $6,100/fruit


A Dansuke watermelon in Japan becomes the most expensive watermelon in the world with the price of $6,100. This is a type of black watermelon grown only on the northern Japanese island of Hokkaido. There are only sixty-five of the fruits among the first harvest season. They are harder and crisper than normal watermelons.

Domenico Crolla’s “Pizza Royale 007″ – $4200/ pie


The 12-inch pizza pie is regarded as the world’s most expensive pizza with the most expensive ingredients such as lobster marinated in cognac, caviar soaked in champagne, sunblush tomato sauce, Scottish smoked salmon, and so on. In addition to all these fine ingredients, it’s topped with 24-carat gold flakes.

Samundari Khazana, the World’s Most Expensive Curry – $3200/ dish


To celebrate the DVD release of “Slumdog Millionaire”, Bombay Brassiere packed this curry platter full of the most expensive ingredients they could find. The food includes Devon crab and white truffle and Beluga caviar. In addition, it has a Scottish lobster, four abalones and four shelled and hollowed quails’ eggs.

Wagyu Steak – $2800/ dish


This is a dish from Japan made of Kobe beef, a very special type of beef in Japan. Kobe beef comes from cows that are allegedly fed only beer and massaged by hand to ensure a tenderness and marbling beyond compare. You can enjoy this dish at New York City’s Craftsteak, the U.S. with the price of $2800.

The Zillion Dollar Frittata – $1000/ pie


This expensive breakfast consists of eggs, lobster and 10 ounces of sevruga caviar which costs $65 per ounce. On the menu of the restaurant, there are much more expensive foods than the Zillion Dollar Frittata.

Matsutake Mushrooms – $1000/pound 


Matsutake mushroom is expensive mainly because of its rarity. Previously, the fungus was common in autumn in Japan; however, several pesticides increasingly appeared on the trunk where matsutake live. A method for farming the matsutake has yet to be developed, which means the lack of trees from which to harvest these mushrooms naturally is a serious problem for the species.

The World’s Most Expensive Bagel – $1000/ pie


Bagel is cooked by Executive Chef Frank Tujague for New York’s Westin Hotel. It is topped with white truffle cream cheese and goji berry. The bagel’s price is justified when you consider that white truffles happen to be the second most expensive food by weight, eclipsed only by caviar.
