Can you imagine what the world’s most luxurious meals are? They are not only more expensive but also exquisite and extravagant, are very hard to come by, making them exotic and valuable. I’d love to imagine I’ll try all of them someday!
1. Almas Caviar.
There are different types of caviar, but this is the most expensive of all. “Almas” caviar, in Russian, means “diamond”. Beluga sturgeon fish comes from the Caspian Sea. The fish are albino and their eggs are distinguished by having a strikingly clear color. Even their packaging is amazing: cans sold in 24 carat gold. It is available in London, England, and its price ranges between $16,000 – $25,000 per kilo.
2. Matsutake mushrooms.
Of Japanese origin, it is a fungus that grows at the base of the pine trees and feeds on forest floor materials and falling leaves. They are difficult to harvest and produce less than one thousand tons per year worldwide. The stronger the aroma, the better quality it is and higher the price. Less than half a kilo costs $ 2,000. They are highly prized because they were always associated with longevity.
3. Densuke Black Watermelon.
It is a fruit that grows on the Japanese island Hokkaido and only 10,000 units per year are produced. As its name suggests, it is a black watermelon with an unlined and very thick black shell. The inside is pink and has a lot of juice. Giving one of these fruits is a sign of respect. Only one will set you back about $ 250.
4. The $1000 omelet.
You thought it was just an omelet with a couple of eggs and some cheese? Parker Meridien restaurant in New York is one of a kind and one of the few places that dares to ask $1000 for an omelet. This delicious dish is made with six eggs, Sevruga caviar and a whole lobster. Of course, the place where it is made is super exclusive.
5. Macadamia Nut.
It is the most expensive nut in the world and comes from the macadamia tree, which produces fruit only every 10 years, in very particular climatic conditions. The tree needs constant rain and the soil must be extremely fertile. The cost of a kilo of this product easily exceeds $ 3,000.
