    Fast food is great because by its nature, it is cheap, easy to get, and you can eat it within a matter of minutes. That is, unless you order these gourmet and over-the-top versions of common fast food items. What do you think? Do these look good or are they a complete waste of money? Feel free to share in the comments.

    I'm all for new and interesting food, but let's be realistic! Exotic foods just for the sake of showing how much money you are willing to waste to show your affluence is in poor taste, no pun intended. In my opinion, there's no reason to concoct such over the top foods in the first place, and the people who are willing to pay for such ridiculous cuisine, should do some serious soul searching and see if there is anything constructive they can do with their disposable wealth, other than literally disposing of it. In the end it's their money and they can do with it as they please, however there should be some consultation with one's conscience before you slap humanity in it's collective face to show you crass disdain for your fellow human beings.

    What I learned from this video is that if you want to increase the value of your meal, do one of three things:
    1. Add caviar
    2. Add truffle
    3. Add gold

    Also, caviar is overrated, truffles are difficult to use correctly in a dish, and eating gold is plain ridiculous.

    Surprised you didn’t mention a HK/Chinese restaurant for fotiaoqiang (Buddha jumps over the wall) soup dish. 190 is pretty standard nowadays for most prestigious restaurant. Most double boiled soups cost quite a bit too, let alone something with all those ingredients. Either way, cool to see what other luxurious food exist around the world!

    Sounds reasonable....but you lost me at the soup part, because that thing is called 佛跳牆(Buddha Jumps Over the Wall) and it's a special soup that would only be consume in special occasion, such as new years eve, birth day of elderly, or wedding ceremony. It's not an expensive versions of your fast food soup.
    But still your video is entertaining and informative at the same time. Please keep making them, thank you.

    I have a strange hobby of making foods that were favorites of American presidents. I think that many of them would taste better than the dishes in this video and cost MUCH less. George Washington's wife made a crab soup with mashed hard-boiled eggs, cream, Worcestershire sauce, sherry and grated lemon peel. Calvin Coolidge loved chicken that was cooked with mint, ginger and lime juice. Martin van Buren enjoyed a ham that soaked overnight in madeira wine, chopped vegetables and spices. (President van Buren was the first president who was born in the United States, and he's the only president who spoke English as a second language. He grew up speaking Dutch.)

  • Marianne Wade

    Truffles and gold. Good grief. Sitting here trying to discern which of these absurdities is actually the most expensive food item excluding such additions as truffles and gold. Or $5000 wine. Kobe and Wagu beef sound pricey. The pancakes threw me but again, additions and toppings. And they sound disgusting! Being vegetarian, nothing on this menu lured me. Being poor, nothing on this menu lured me. And finally, being disinclined to spend more than rent on something that won't be enjoyed beyond moments and will still end up transforming into poo, nothing on this menu lured me.
