Check out the world's most expensive foods!

Check Please! World's 5 Most Expensive Foods

The economy is on the rebound and you need a bite to eat, why not blow a paycheck (or two) on a gold-flecked sandwich, an $800 bottle of beer or a truffled hot dog?

Luxury chefs and media mavens are always trying to one-up each other, which makes for entertaining news and mind-blowing Guinness records. Everybody else, however, is stuck wondering if these sumptuous snacks are really worth more than their pedestrian counterparts.

...

Most Expensive Food No. 5
Gold-Flecked Cheese Sandwich

If you've got 111 pounds ($180) to blow, and really, really like cheese -- Chef Martin Blunos' record-breaking cheese sandwich is for you.

Most Expensive Food No. 2
Antarctic Brew

The most expensive beer is a title that changes hands almost every year. But an $800 bottle of beer brewed from melted Antarctic glacial ice might hold the top spot for some time.

The Antarctic Nail Ale from Nail Brewing in Perth, England, beat out the previous most expensive beer -- bottled inside taxidermied squirrels -- by just $35.

I'd enjoy the cheese sandwich - hold the figs.

Re: Check out the world's most expensive foods!

I have to admit, I bought a $777 burger in vegas that had lobster, kobe beef, and foie gras on it during a new years trip one year, but it also include a bottle of expensive champagne.

There were 3 of us, so we split it

2000 pizza anyone?

Award-winning Glasgow restaurateur Domenico Crolla will prepare the 2,150 (3,000-euro) feast for lawyer Maurizio Morelli and his wife Sabrina in Rome.

Mr Morelli, a gastro-expert, bought the pizza during a charity auction.
The treat named the Pizza Royale 007 is topped with edible gold, lobster marinated in the finest cognac and champagne-soaked caviar.

Other toppings on the organic base, spread with a sunblush tomato sauce, include Scottish smoked salmon and medallions of venison.

"That's not my wonder! It's just a smelly sock!"
