From a “24k gold pizza” to a “Zillion dollar lobster frittata”, these are some of the most ‘luxurious foods’ in the world
For some of us, a delicious spoil includes an outing to our favourite restaurant, and having a starter AND dessert. But for the rich and famous, a burger and fries and lemon meringue pie just won’t satisfy their taste for the good life.
What does gold really taste like? Well, you can find out for yourself if you order the Golden Opulence Sundae from New York City restaurant Serendipity 3. Apparently the restaurant sells at least one of these decadent desserts every month – for a cool $1000! (that’s close to R14 000). The sundae is topped with caviar and gold leaf. But is it tasty?
If you’re craving a good steak, why not head to Japan which is famous for wagyu beef which goes for a cool $300 (R4 150). But does it come with a free cheese sauce? You’ll have to visit Japan to find out.
For those Friday night binges, the rich and famous can indulge in a 24-carat gold pizza (do you think this is on Bruno Mars’s delivery list?). The Industry Kitchen in New York City requires 48 hours’ notice of the order so that it can get all of the ingredients together, including 24-carat gold edible flakes, white stilton cheese, Ossetra caviar from the Caspian Sea, and truffles and fois gras from France.
Savour every bite because this pizza will set you back $2000 (almost R28 000)!
