If you were rich, would you eat at fancier restaurants all the time? That's definitely something I would indulge on more. Well, this list is a good start. According to the folks at FoodBeast, these are some of the most expensive foods around and even though we probably won’t eat any of them, it’s interesting to see how the 1% eats:
- Bird’s nest soup - A bowl of this stuff can cost between $30 and $100. So what makes it so pricey? It’s actually made of edible bird’s nests, which are prized in Chinese culture for their rarity and they’re also supposed to be very nutritious and tasty, too.
- Densuke watermelon - This fruit from Japan sells for around $200. But what makes it that much better than your $5 supermarket melon? This rare watermelon is only grown in Hokkaido, Japan and is supposed to be sweeter than the average watermelon. We’ll just take their word on that one.
- The Golden Opulence Sundae - This high-end dessert has actually been in the Guinness World Book of Records for being the most expensive sundae on the planet. It comes from Serendipity 3 in New York City and if you’re willing to shell out $1,000 for it, you get ice cream with gold leaf and a sweet caviar, served in a crystal goblet, with an 18-karat gold spoon on the side.
- White Alba truffles - Sometimes the most expensive foods are the rare ones, like these truffles. These grow mainly in Northern Italy and someone once paid $330,000 for a single white truffle weighing 3.3-pounds!
- Almas caviar - We’ve heard caviar is pricey, but this stuff is next-level expensive. Almas caviar comes from the Iranian beluga fish and sells for about $35,000 per kilogram, making it the most expensive kind of caviar.
