Fast food is known for its affordability, speed, and convenience. Hungry customers have come to expect that the product will, by and large, always come cheap.
But in this article, the fast foods we are going to tackle are a bit different. Not just fast-food but ridiculously expensive fast foods you won’t believe the price.
1. Momofuku Fried Chicken
Fried chicken is a fast-food staple and chains like KFC, McDonalds and etc. has helped established the fried chicken’s legacy as one of the best comfort food in the world.
Momofuku’s fried-chicken perception takes it to a different level. This korean fast-food chain brings Korean and Southern American traditions and combines them in a spicy, super-crispy plateful fried chicken that becomes an art. On their website, Momofuku Noodle Bar says their Korean fried chicken is ‘triple fried.’
Unfortunately, the ultimate chicken experience will set you back $100.
2. Barclay Prime Cheesesteak
Cheesesteaks sandwiches are usually seen as a cheap go-to food while on the move. A cheesesteak sandwich is made with onions, beef, and lots of cheese. But the Barclay Prime in Philadelphia brings it to the next level.
Here, the sandwiches are made with Japanese wagyu beef, foie gras, shaved truffles, truffle butter, and cheese, bringing the total bill up to a hefty $100.
3. The Westin Bagel
Bagel is food for the masses. Considered one of the world’s best cheap eats, it sounds unacceptable to turn a bagel into something expensive. Not just expensive but $1000 expensive!
Yet, that is exactly what The Westin in New York City has done.
Costing an astonishing $1,000, this bready bonanza features truffle cream cheese, edible gold leaf, and goji berry jelly.
Burgers today are all over-stuffed with a wealth of different ingredients. None, however, can rival the Glamburger from Honky Tonk restaurant in London.
Kobe wagyu beef, New Zealand venison, black truffle brie, lobster poached in Iranian saffron, maple syrup-coated bacon, Beluga caviar, hickory-smoked duck egg and grated truffle are all covered in gold leaf in one of the most OTT dishes out there. Yours for $1,700.
5. Velvet Goldmine Milkshake
Given how shocked he was by a $5 dollar shake in Pulp Fiction, we dread to think how John Travolta would have reacted to this offering this $500 Velvet Goldmine Milkshake.
Combining a Remy Martin Louis 13 cognac, Amedei Porcelina chocolate ($90/pound), shavings of gold and a Swarovski Nirvana Montana blue crystal ring, this flamboyant milkshake could be yours for $500.
6. Golden Opulence Sundae
Sundae is one of the fast-food staples when it comes to desserts. It’s cheap, simple but very satisfying sweet treat.
But not with the Golden Opulence Sundae that is served by special order at the New York City restaurant Serendipity 3. They turn sundae to the next level.
Covered in 24-carat gold leaf and served with sweet Golden Passion caviar and a gilded golden sugar flower, you’ll need to fork out $1,000 to taste this sweet treat.
7. Industry Kitchen Pizza
Modern pies come in all shapes, sizes and, apparently, prices. Right at the far end of the spectrum is the exorbitant Industry Kitchen Pizza.
Coming in at a colossal $2,000, the creation contains white Stilton cheese imported from England, French foie gras, truffles, and Ossetra caviar from the Caspian Sea, all garnished with 24-karat Ecuadorian gold. This is rich food on another level.
8. Zillion Dollar Frittata
Of course, charging a zillion dollars for an oversized omelette would be ridiculous.
That’s why Norma’s in New York only charge $1,000 for this lobster and caviar-loaded concoction. There can certainly be a few better ways to kickstart a morning.
