The Most Expensive Dishes in the World Part 2

Sloane | January 31, 2014

When celebrities dine out, they dine out big time. They expect expensive wines, lavish meals, exclusive tables and the finest service. While the rest of us sit around eating blue box macaroni and cheese, the wealthiest people in the world are out stuffing their faces with caviar, gold leaf, and the finest cuts of beef. If you’re looking for a meal of a lifetime (with a price tag to match) you might want to consider eating one of the following dishes:

Sweet Surrender Cupcake: $750

Chef Olivier Dubreuil (of the Venetian and Palazzo┬áin Las Vegas) created a cupcake that makes other cupcakes look like dry, old corn muffins. His Decadence D’Or cupcake is made from Porcelana Criollo chocolate (a very rare Venezuelan bean), toped with edible gold flakes, Tahitian Gold Vanilla Caviar and a touch of Louis XIII de Remy Martin Cognac. The decadent dessert is then topped with a hand-blown sugar Fleur-de-Lis. If you want to order this cupcake make sure to call 48 hours in advance.

Margo’s Pizza: $2,420

Margo’s pizzeria, located in Malta, offers this special pie from October through May when truffle season is in full swing. The pizza is topped with white truffles flown in from Piemonte, organic water buffalo mozzarella and 24 karat gold leaf. The pie can become even more expensive depending on the price of truffles. The base price for the pie is $2,420 but it can get more expensive. And no, it doesn’t come by the slice.

The Fortress Resort & Spa in Sri Lanka has a dessert that is equal parts delicious and expensive. The Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence is a gold lead Italian cassata (it’s a yummy soaked sponge cake) flavored with passion fruit Irish cream and topped with a fruit compote. The cassata sits on a sabayon made of Dom Perignon champagne and is adorned with a handmade chocolate carving of a fisherman on stilts. Still doesn’t sound worth $14,500? The dessert also comes with an 80-carat Aquamarine for you to keep.
