Just in case anyone thought the ‘World’s Most Expensive’ trend could not get any more annoying, Filipino chef Angelito Araneta Jr. now offers what is currently the world’s most expensive sushi.
Wrapped in a thin 24-carat gold leaf and encrusted with .20-carat African diamonds on top. It is available in a restaurant in Manila, and will run you a mortgage-payment-like $2700.
Apparently the sushi is marketed as a perfect accompaniment to a marriage proposal or anniversary, for the woman who’s obviously married you for your money.

i’m not a sushi master like Jiro Ono but even i can see that that sushi is not well made. The only thing that makes it expensive are the gold leaf and diamonds…

What is even more annoying is that with rarified ingredients such as diamonds and gold leaf, why on earth would you use imitation crab?

It is a little bazaar but in a world where the average American owes more to the worlds bankers than 100 Africans will earn in their entire lives … why not?
