Stupidly Expensive Dishes Around The World


Fine dining typically means splurging a little for high-quality meat or fresh seafood. But what if money were truly no object?

Restaurant owners and chefs around the world create original dining experiences for those who want unique experiences. You know, like spending over $10,000 on a pizza or $1,000 on an ice cream sundae.

Kyoto Kitcho Arashiyama — Kyoto, Japan
Prix fixe menu: $599.49

At Kyoto Kitcho Arashiyama in Kyoto, Japan there are several prix fixe menus to choose from, but the costliest option is 64,800 yen — or $599.49 a person. Granted, you won’t leave hungry, as the meal is at least 10 courses and features rounds of sashimi, grilled and steamed food, rice, pickled vegetables, and dessert, to name a few.

The chef, Kunio Tokuoka, is the helm of the restaurant, following the footsteps of his father and grandfather who were the chefs before him. When you’re eating a high-end meal, be mindful of how restaurants mark-up dishes to increase your bill.

Restaurant Guy Savoy Monnaie — Paris
Prix fixe menu: $536.63

Chef Guy Savoy opened the restaurant in 2015 overlooking the Louvre and the Pont Neuf. Currently the Parisian restaurant offers a prix fixe menu of up to 13 courses described as a feast of “textures, colors and flavors.” The price does not include drinks, however. For the hundreds of dollars, you’ll enjoy duck, lobster and artichoke soup with black truffles, in addition to other delightful dishes.

Paris is one of the most romantic cities in the world, and eating at Restaurant Guy Savoy Monnaie will certainly make your heart stop.

Masa — New York
Dinner menu: $595

Plan to set aside two hours for the nearly $600 sushi eating experience at Masa in New York. That price does not include tax and drinks. You will save on gratuity, though, as tips are not accepted. Although the menu changes regularly, expect to be served only the finest Japanese cuisine, carefully crafted by chef Masayoshi Takayama.

Dining at Masa is a little different than ordering sushi as a midnight snack, but spicy tuna roll is one of the most popular late-night takeout orders around the country, a GOBankingRates study found.
