Luxe Lox: Expensive Breakfasts Around the World
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so you shouldn’t be afraid to spend a little money on it. Or in this case, a lot of money. Here are some of the most expensive breakfasts from around the world…
Would you pay a grand for a shmear? The Westin Hotel in New York sells its signature bagel sandwich for a cool $1,000. The bagel is topped with white truffle cream cheese and goji berry infused Riesling jelly with golden leaves.
The world’s most expensive pancake, served at the Radisson Blu Edwardian Hotel in London, costs $1,360. It is made with Scottish Native Paradise Lobster, Hulle Verge truffles, Russian beluga caviar, Scottish mussels, langoustine prawns, and Dom Perignon Rosé hollandaise sauce.
Drool over the $37,000 meal created by Chambord, the French black raspberry liqueur. It featured a croissant, hand-decorated with edible gold and diamonds, Bar le Duc hand-seeded red currant jam, a cup of Kopi Luwak coffee, and the pièce de résistance — a $32,178 Chambord and champagne cocktail.
The $1,500 Czar’s Breakfast served at the Ritz Carlton in Moscow includes vodka, foie gras, caviar, lobster, fresh fruit, pastries, truffle omelettes, Italian hams, beluga caviar, and Dom Perignon.
The Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata is actually an omelette, and (good news!) it only costs $1,000. Served at Norma’s inside Le Parker Meridien Hotel in Manhattan, the omelette is stuffed with the meat of an entire lobster, and covered in a $650 dollop of caviar.
The $235 Bacon Bling sandwich served at Tangberry’s cafe in Cheltenham, England includes eggs, a “rare breed bacon”, black truffles, truffle oil, gold leaf, gold dust, and saffron. The World Record Academy honored it with the title of world’s most expensive bacon sandwich.
Feast your eyes on this $205 breakfast of imported Balik salmon, two duck eggs, Oscetra caviar, creme fraiche, and mini brioche served at the Ritz in London.
4Fourteen restaurant outside of Sydney, Australia serves an egg sandwich on homemade brioche, with award-winning bacon, duck egg, gourmet tomatoes, foie gras, shaved truffles, caviar, creme fraiche, and cheese. It’s a steal at $120.
An overzealous fan purchased Justin Timberlake’s half-eaten french toast sold for $3,000.
