The on-line journal “The Richest” made a list of the foods and dishes most expensive of the world!!
Let’s have a look of them…and unfortunately we can have only a look and not a taste, but never say never:
10) MATTAKE MUSHROOMS – $ 1,000

9) BAGEL – $ 1,000
All of you know how Bagels are and, generally, they are not expensive but… the Special Westin Hotel Bagel, created by the Chef of this Hotel, is very very expensive!! They include some truffle cream and a jelly with… GOLD leaves!! About 1.230 € for one Bagel!!

7) WAGYU BEEF STEAK – $ 2,800
Kobe variety of this beef comes from Japan… (incredibly lots of the most expensive food come from Japan). It is said that animals are massaged to garantee tenderness and they are fed with beer. Almost 3.400 € only for one steak!!!
6) BOMBAY BRASSERIE’S SAMUNDARI KHAZANA CURRY – $ 3,200

2) ALMAS CAVIAR – $ 25,000

1) ITALIAN WHITE ALBA TRUFFLE – $ 160,406
This is a honour for Italy and all Italian people (and so, also for me) to affirm that at the top of this rank we have the Italian white Alba truffle!!! Its high price is due to the difficulty of its cultivation and once a retail investor bought a huge white alba truffle of 1,51 kilograms for 196,150 €!!!
But in this TOP 10, two items are missing:
SAFFRON – 10,000 €
One kilo of this spice can cost from 1,000 to 10,000 euros.
“SUPERNARIWA” WATER – 7,500 €
“SuperNariwa” water is the most expensive one and it comes from Japan! 99.95 dollars for a 10 ml bottle and 7,500 € FOR A 1 L BOTTLE.
