We all have that feeling of wanting to celebrate something special by doing something special for ourselves. This can range from a lot of things but mostly we would spend lots of our cash to go to a nice restaurant and eat an exquisite expensive meal. You may question some of the expensive meals out there but as long as you have money on you, you would still buy it to make yourself feel nice.
Some of the foods listed here come from remote places on earth, hence the pricing. Others might be seen as a meal only fit for royalty and VIP people. You can even have a meal of gold. Crazy isn’t it? Anyway, here is the top 10 costly foods that you guys may or may not think it’s worth trying.
10. Civet Coffee: $100 Per Cup
For those out there who love that great cup of coffee in the morning, I introduce to you the world’s most costly coffee. You can enjoy Civet Coffee only for $100 a cup. Interesting fact. The coffee cherries that go into making this coffee are produced by feces from the wild Asian palm civet. You might think that you would not want to drink that but before you ignore this coffee, the coffee has a sweet aroma and smooth round taste because of the civet’s digestive track. This goes to show that one person’s poison can also be another person’s food. And delicious food too.
9. Wagyu Ribeye: $250 Per Steak
Wagyu Ribeye is only produced by rare cattle kept in Japan. These cows are massaged in order to prevent cramped muscles due to the tight places they are kept in.
