Some folks need their heads read: apparently you can now treat yourself to sushi at a cost of $2,750. “Why so pricey?” I hear my local Ocean Basket branch whine. Well, good Sirs, it’s due mainly (okay, it’s due pretty much TOTALLY) to it being covered in gold and diamonds.
Take a look:
BornRich.org described it like this:
For those rich food fanatics who like to savor the most expensive foods and delicacies known to the man, next on the list is world’s most expensive sushi made by Filipino chef Angelito Araneta Jr. What makes this plate of sushi consisting of five pieces the most expensive is not the fish, but the garnishing in gold leaves and diamonds. The sushi is garnished with .20-carat African diamonds and wrapped with 24-karat gold leaves and is available in a restaurant in Manila for $2,750.
All I can say about this is: “Why? WTF is the point of covering your chow in gold and diamonds?” Pretentious knobs, the lot of ‘em!
I’ll be sure to give this self-indulgent stuff the attention it deserves as I munch on my Marmite-on-toast I’m planning on feasting on tonight.
