Here at foodiggity, we recently reported on what was the World’s Most Expensive Sushi. Chef Angelito Araneta, Jr., the sushi’s creator, has since contacted us about his new and even more expensive roll. Our previous post, although a mere ten days old, was now dated.
Behold, the new World’s Most Expensive Sushi, for now.
Ingredients according to Chef’s Facebook page include:
12-yr-old Italian balsamic vinegar, Japanese rice, 70-yr-old virgin water, Muscovado sugar, Norwegian pink salmon, cucumber, mango, foie gras, sea cucumber (smoked then pickled and steamed ’til tender sticky), genuine crabmeat, wild saffron, mayonnaise with butter, 12 local Palawan pearls and 4 (.20ct) African diamonds of VVS clarity.
Price: Php 198,999.00.
We are not sure what that amounts to in US dollars or the Euro, but it sure looks like more than a used Toyota, or a month’s rent on your studio apartment.
