If you look in the right prices, you can always find something that is lavishly overpriced. We bring sheer gluttony and decadence today, found in the three most expensive eats in the world.
The Fortress Resort & Spa, Sri Lanka — $14,500 Fortress Stilt Fisherman Indulgence Dessert
If $14.5k is mere pocket change for you, then get ready to overspend on this overpriced dessert. The Fortress Resort & Spa in Sri Lanka claims their costly dessert is “a challenge for those adventurous at heart.” It starts with gold-leafed Italian cassata that is infused with Irish cream and fruit. The compote contains a base that consists of Dom Perignon champagne sabayon. But the real kicker is the 80 carat Aquamarine gemstone that you get with the dessert, naturally lending to its brash price tag.
Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel, England — $35,000 Pudding
You guessed it, there’s a pudding, and somehow it magically costs $35k. The Lindeth Howe Country House Hotel in England serves up a dish that was created by Chef Marc Guibert, and it’s basically the priciest dessert in the world, hands down. It’s made from the most premium, hand-spun chocolate, adorned with gold leafing, smothered in champagne and somehow also has caviar in it (strange). Of course, you also get a diamond. And the gold is edible. To-date, only one order has ever been sold. This one doesn’t take a genius to wonder why.
Arnaud’s, New Orleans — $3.95 million Strawberries Arnaud
And the most expensive dessert in the world can be found at Arnaud’s in New Orleans (featured image, top), where you will pay nearly $4 million to eat Strawberries Arnaud. But it’s not the dessert that is going to cost you so much money. Rather, it’s the 7.09 carat pink diamond that you get with it. The berries come in a marinade of wine and port with various spices, served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream. Of course, nobody has bought any of it yet, with the restaurant owner stating that this is the worst-selling dessert they offer. We wonder why that is?
