#1 Norma’s at Le Parker Meridien, New York, New York
It may sound overzealous, but the Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata at Norma’s at La Parker Meridien in New York costs a cool $1,000 for a super-sized portion. You’re not paying for eggs here — you’re paying for 10 ounces of Sevruga Caviar and a roasted Maine lobster tail nestled in six eggs of extravagance.
#2 Kopi Luwak Coffee
- On the small island of Sumatra in Indonesia, you’ll find the most expensive coffee in the world. It takes a long time for the coffee to become a cup of high-end coffee. Sumatra is home to small cats called luwaks that eat ripe coffee cherries, including the beans. Kopi Luwak coffee is made with the beans that pass through the digestive tract of an animal and end up back on the forest floor where workers collect and clean them to create the coffee aficionado’s favorite.
#3 Aragawa, Tokyo, Japan
- Even though Kobe beef has become more widely available due in part to the gourmet Kobe burgers, its price remains around $800 per pound.
- It’s a perfect meal, but the cost — likely in the range of $550 per person — might raise some red flags on an expense report.
# 4 Skyview Bar, Dubai, United Arab Emirates
- It might be a big bar tab at the Burj Al Arab’s Skyview Bar if your fellow tipplers are sipping the pricey Macallan 55-year-old Single Malt Whisky. Just a dash of this limited malt whiskey will cost you nearly $4,000 for just a taste.
