The Most Expensive Food in the World

Updated on April 5, 2015

Expensive foods

When your rich you got to live like a million bucks, right? Well if you want to eat like a millionaire you have to try out these foods. As for an average Joe you may need to save up some cash if you ever want to try these food delights. From steak to truffles these foods are running up the bill. So without further a do lets get to the most expensive food/meals in the world.

Japanese Kobe beef

Kobe beef

When you think of expensive foods the first thing that comes to my mind would be: steak. The most expensive of these is the the mythical Kobe beef of Japan. Authentic Japanese Kobe beef can only be purchased in Japan and Macau (a region in China), in Japan they believe that steak tastes better if the cow it comes from is treated better. So they give the cow massages, feed it beer and even play it soft music. And the cost of an eight ounce steak is approximately $600! so your paying about fifty dollars a bite so make sure you enjoy it!

White Truffle

White Truffle

At an annual auction in Hong Kong in 2007 casino tycoon, Stanley Ho, purchased a 3.3 pound truffle for $330,000. Ho also paid $330,000 again in 2010 for just under three pounds of truffles. Truffles are a very expensive product that bring in thousands of dollars for a single ounce. Dogs are trained to sniff out these truffles and owners have full time jobs as truffle hunters and if you make money like that, I wouldn't mind being a truffle hunter.



This another food that I directly relate to being expensive and the most expensive caviar can be found in "The City". At Caviar and pruner in London you can purchase a kilo of Almas Caviar at the mere cost of $25,000. Can't afford that? no problem! they also sell a tin at the cost of $12,500. If that's not enough in comes in a tin made of 24 karat gold just to drive up the cost.

Diamond Fruitcake

Need a dish to take to the next Christmas party? why not a diamond fruitcake? The most expensive dessert was conjured up by a Japanese pastry chef who spent seven months creating the fruit cake. The cake was sold for an astonishing cost of 1.65 million dollars on Christmas 2005! The cake boasts 223 diamonds as well as other items that were not disclosed to the public.

Pizza royal 007

Pizza Royal 007

A pizza worthy for the secret agent himself. This pizza was built in Scotland and was auctioned off on the well known site Ebay. The ingredients on the pizza, besides the usual cheese and sauce, are: champing soaked caviar, lobster marinated in the finest cognac and 24 karat edible gold. The pizza was purchased for $4200 and all the profit of the pizza was donated to charity; so it's nice to know the money went to good use.

      Greekwarrior really good, informative, and interesting hub article. The above items are definitely limited to a select few. Kobe Beef is very good if you ever get a chance to eat it. Truffles are really wonderful and there are some that are pricey, but less expensive then those listed above. Enjoyed It! Keep up the good work.
