World’s Most Expensive Sushi Is Made With Edible Gold, Diamonds, and Pearls

Worlds-Most-Expensive-Sushi

Chef Angelito Araneta Jr. isn’t your average sushi chef, and he certainly does not make “average” sushi. While sushi can normally get quite expensive, Angelito Araneta Jr. likes to take it up a notch. This renowned Filipino chef often goes by his nickname the “Karat Chef”, and that’s because he likes to incorporate gold and diamonds into his creations. One of his most recent concoctions has now officially been named the “world’s most expensive sushi”, and it’s made with edible gold, diamonds, and pearls.

Priced at $1,978, Angelito Araneta Jr’s five-piece special nigiri roll is officially the most expensive sushi in the world, according to Guinness World Records. The sushi roll starts with premium pink salmon from Norway and foie gras, which are fairly common ingredients, however it get’s pretty crazy from there. Next, instead of wrapping the roll in seaweed, Araneta uses edible 24-karat gold leaf. Now he could have stopped there, but again, Angelito isn’t your “normal” sushi chef. He then adds three Palawan pearls to each piece in addition to 20-carats of African diamonds. Add all those ingredients up, and you’ve got the most expensive sushi in the world.

Now while this may largely be just a “novelty” creation, as I wasn’t even aware that you could consume diamonds and pearls, it’s still quite special. Sushi is often looked at as edible “art”, and that’s definitely the case with the Karat Chefs latest creation. So whose up to try the most expensive sushi in the world?

Given a price of nearly $2,000 you might think that this sushi dish ranks up there with the most expensive fish worldwide.  However, this dish (amazingly) pales in comparison to the price of one prized bluefin tuna. The bluefin tuna, which is wildly caught, sells for literally hundreds of thousands of dollars. The best source for the tuna is at the Tsukiji fish market in Tokyo.  The most expensive tuna ever sold was priced at $173,600 for a 444 lb. bluefin tuna.

Another pricey creature from the sea?  Lobster.  You might wonder what the most expensive lobster ever sold was.  The one we know of is sold at Norma’s in NYC. There are two versions of Norma’s frittata for high-rollers: there’s a $100 frittata with only one ounce of caviar on it or the $1,000 frittata topped with 10 ounces of caviar. The latter is officially the world’s most expensive omelette, according to the Guinness Book of Records, and also involves one pound of lobster covered in egg on a bed of fried potatoes.

According to a rep, the restaurant at New York’s Le Parker Meridien sells about 10-12 of the $1,000 Zillion Dollar Lobster Frittatas throughout the course of a year — and that same number per month for the $100 dish. There’s no need to order in advance.

The next time you decide to order fish, think about some of these dishes and see just how far you’re willing to go for the ultimate ocean animal.
