15 of the World’s Most Expensive Foods

Restaurants love to come up with extravagant recipes that are worth their weight in gold -in publicity. Whether anyone actually pays such outrageous prices are another matter. And if they do, it's a clear case of conspicuous consumption. Jill Harness found 15 such dishes offered by restaurants around the world that neither you nor I will ever be able to order. Pictured here is the Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittata, containing caviar, lobster, and other yummy stuff that will set you back $1,000 a serving. Read about all 15 expensive dishes at mental_floss.

Out of 15 items:
8 of them use gold leaf to seem more expensive
3 use truffle oil/butter (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Truffle_oil) which is often fake and used mostly as a buzzword to inflate the price
At least 1 of them (the shark fin soup) is illegal to make in most civilized countries

The only one of those that a sane, rational person would even consider eating is the The California Capitol City Dawg, which actually sounds like it was crafted for flavor rather than to bilk new money suckers into conspicuous consumption. It's essentially the culinary equivalent of 3-Card Monte, and if you're stupid enough to put your money down you deserve to have it taken from you.
