Worlds most expensive foods

 #1 The Zillion Dollar Frittata

Though meats are more known to be an expensive source of protein, one egg omelet tops the list consisting of a mixture of various eggs, lobster and exquisite caviar to create an asking price of a little bit more than a $1,000 per dish.

 #2 Chocopologie

Created by Knipschildt, the Chocopologie is the most expensive piece of chocolate from across the globe. The handmade truffle consists of 70% Valrhona cacao and can be ordered at $2,600 per pound.

 #3 Wagyu Beef

Similar to Kobe Beef from Japan, Wagyu comes from several variations of cattle to produce a high percentage of unsaturated fat and an intensified rich flavor. While the average steak can fetch up to $500, more are known to be served with the price of up to $2,800.

 #4 Pizza Royale 007

Under consideration for being the World's Most Expensive Pizza, this creation was auctioned off in 2006 where the bid topped the thousand mark. Italian lawyer Maurizio Morelli bid the Pizza Royale 007 for almost $4,200.

 #5 Samundri Khazana

More commonly known as the "treasure of the seas", this particular dish is a mixture of Beluga caviar, sea snails and an entire lobster that's topped with edible gold with a strong curry flavor. It's cost price? $2,000 for one single portion.

 #6 Densuke Black Watermelon

Also imported and exported from Japan, the Densuke Black Watermelon is an exquisite fruit only grown on the Japanese island of Hokkaido where only 10,000 are produced annually. One of the 17-pound fruits can be sold for $6,100.

 #7 Moose Milk Cheese

When you say it out loud, Moose Milk Cheese doesn't exactly seem like it's meant for an expensive taste, but given the fact various cheeses can cost several hundreds, it's not surprising. Only available at private moose cow farms in parts of Sweden, it can cost up to $500 per pound.

 #8 Matsutake Mushrooms

One of the more popular expensive foods from the '80s and '90s, the Matsutake mushroom has become a rarity in today's culture due to infestation of its habitat. Because of it, the mushrooms now cost around $2,000 per pound, sometimes higher depending on the demand and supply.

 #9 Almas Caviar

For years, caviar has always been known as an expensive dish that's only sold in a fine-dining environment but this variation that comes from a beluga sturgeon fetches up to $25,000 a tin. The best part? The case is made of 24-karat gold.

 #10 La Bonotte Potatoes

Potatoes do come at a cost in normal markets but this form of starch and nutrients can only be harvested in Noirmoutier, an island located off of Western France, with a pound going for as a much as $1,543. That's a handful of french fries for over $1,000.

 #11 Saffron

Saffron has always been known as a vital export to economies and agricultural growth but little known is its actual cost. As it takes more than 70,000 filaments to produce a pound of the spice, it can go for $2,700 per pound.

 #12 Kopi Luwak Coffee

Coffee is a familiar and expensive export for some countries as it is a building block for most nations across the world. Kopi Luwak coffee is shipped from Indonesia Archipelago and the Philippines, the beans can cost up to $230 per pound due to its low-production.

 #13 Kobe Beef

The tricky aspect to Kobe beef is the fact it's advertised in different products in the average grocery store despite its high cost and apparent rarity. Created from Japanese tradition, where the meat is particularly sliced and served, a pound of the beef costs $500.

 #14 Yubari King Melons

A rare product from Japan, Yubari King Melons are precious fruits sold in Japanese stores for around $50 to $100. Outside of the country, the melons can be sold up to $26,000 for a pair and up to $80,000 for a box of six.

 #15 Bluefin Tuna

Why bother choosing fresh tuna over the canned variety? Taste. It's part of the reason why Bluefin tuna can be sold up to $1,365 per pound and also why a record 593-pound fish was sold for $736,000 at a bidding auction in Japan.
