The 21 Most Expensive Food Dishes Around the World


20. Barclay Prime, Philadelphia — $100 cheesesteak


How much would you pay for a Philly cheesesteak? Stephen Starr, owner of Barclay Prime restaurant, hopes your answer is in the triple digits. The latest draw to this upscale restaurant for serious patrons is the aptly-named $100 Cheesesteak.

While Starr admits that the sandwich is a marketing ploy for the Philly-based restaurant, the most expensive cheesesteak appears to be worth every penny. Of course, it’s a given that the sandwich is made with Kobe beef. The sandwich also includes $17-per-pound Taleggio cheese, Sautéed foie gras, caramelized onions, heirloom shaved tomatoes and $900-per-pound shaved truffles. It’s a bit of a step up from your standard roast beef and provolone sandwich.

  1. I cant believe that there are people on this planet who are willing to spend such absurd amount of money on food like this when there are millions out there starving! If i had that kinda money , i would go to posh restaurants for the experience maybe once, but making it a habit is abhorrent and so very wrong. i agree there people have all the right to spend their hard earned money on whatever they desire, but personally i dont think i could get a good night’s sleep knowing that i could have fed others, had it not been for my personal greed.

  2. I would love to try all these crazy foods before I die. The tiny problem being that the money will be spent on traveling as a priority, food comes when I reach the destination. Now i just need to win a lottery to try all these delicacies 😀
