Fast foods are known for their cheap and incredibly quick but extremely unhealthy selection of food, however, there are actually some fast food restaurants that offer a particular item for an outrageous price, here are some of them.
PIZZA GOGO’S GOLD PIZZA ($650)
Almost everyone loves pizza, it is definitely the go-to fast food item. One of the reasons is that it is cheap, there are several choices of toppings, it is fast and convenient at any time of the day. It can even be eaten for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It is also best for parties and get-togethers. Most people would expect pizza is cheap, simply because it is usually is. However, there is one particular pizza that has a price of a laptop and a plane ticket out of state.
This expensive pizza is referred to as the Gold Pizza from Pizza GoGo. It has got to be the most expensive pizza from a pizza takeaway chain. The Gold Pizza contains caviar, prawns, lobster, fantail, with white truffle oil. However, they sprinkled it with some 23-carat gold flakes, that is basically one of the reasons why it is so expensive.
“Just because you eat doesn’t mean you eat smart. It’s hard to eat a $1.99 wing pack of three at a fast food restaurant, it’s so cheap, but that wing pack isn’t feeding anyone, it’s just pushing hunger back in an hour.” – Mario Batali
WENDY’S LOBSTER SURF AND TURF BURGER ($16)
This next one is actually a particular burger from Japan. It is considered to be expensive because it is more than $16. Wendy’s is widely known all over the US, but they’re known for having decent priced fast food burgers, not like this one from Japan. This burger consists of a beef patty with some tomato, lettuce and lobster.
The burger may be considered to be too pricey compared to an ordinary Wendy’s burger, but promises to melt in your mouth on every bite, but then you have to fly all the way to Japan in order to try this.
GRILL AND SHAKE’S MILKSHAKE ($65)
From mouthwatering pizza and burger, let’s move on to what they call as the most expensive vanilla milkshake. This was actually created in celebration of the National Vanilla Milkshake Day. The place itself already offers 20 different milkshake flavors to choose from, but this particular milkshake costs $65.
It is called the “Millionaire Milkshake” that has some of the most expensive ingredients in the world that came from different countries. It consists of an ice cream from Tahitian Vanilla Pods, strands of saffron, Italian black truffle, 23-carat gold leaf, and shavings of the most expensive chocolates from around the world. However, this is only available on National Vanilla Milkshake Day.
DOUGIEDOG’S DRAGON DOG ($100)
In 2012, the world’s most expensive hotdog was introduced, and it is called the Dragon Dog, it is the most expensive item on the menu of the hotdog place, DougieDog Hot Dogs, in Vancouver, Canada. It broke the Guinness world record of Serendipity’s $69 hotdog.
The Dragon Dog contains a $2,400 Louis XIII cognac, with a foot-long bratwurst that is topped with some truffle oil, Kobe beef, and of course, a fresh lobster.
“I think Americas food culture is embedded in fast-food culture, and the real question that we have is: How are we going to teach slow-food values in a fast-food world? Of course, it’s very difficult to do so, especially when children have grown up eating fast food and the values that go with that.” – Alice Waters
BARCLAYS PRIME’S PHILLY CHEESESTEAK ($120)
From a pizza, a burger from Japan, a vanilla milkshake, and a $100 foot-long, to a $120 Philly Cheesesteak. Among all the expensive fast food items in this article, this has the best reviews. According to some people who have tried this, it is one of the greatest sandwiches that they have eaten, and that it is definitely worth it.
This particular Philly Cheesesteak consists of wagyu beef, truffle cheese whiz, and some Foie gras, that comes with a wonderful bottle of champagne. It was created at Stephen Starr’s Barclay Prime. The difference is huge compared to the ordinary $4 Cheesesteak, that is a thinly sliced rib-eye on an Italian roll together with some American cheese. This Cheesesteak can be found at the heart of Philadelphia.
It is perfectly understandable to be hungry right after reading this, but your pocket might not be hungry at all after seeing their prices.
