How many kebabs can you eat in a minute? Well, before you answer that, you will need to know how much you’re forking out on each of them. Not that you won’t eat one afterward, but you will be considerably slower while wolfing it down, savoring every bit of the flavors. Tagged as the ‘King of Kebabs,’ Chef Andy Bates has come up with the world’s most expensive kebab to celebrate the launch of The Great Food Truck Race TV show that will glorify street food.
Priced at £750 ($1,225) apiece, the kebab is made using “gold leaf for a finishing flourish and champagne-infused mint and cucumber yogurt” that justifies its cost. The ingredients include Shoulder of milk-fed lamb (£84), Coeur de Boeuf tomatoes ( £20), Micro Cress and Bibb Salad ( £11.95), Chili Peppers ( £35), Barrel Aged Feta Cheese ( £54.20), Laudemio Extra Virgin Olive Oil ( £26.95), Purple violet potatoes ( £15), Edible gold leaf and platinum ( £130), Saffron ( £138), Krug Champagne ( £195), Other ingredients (garlic, lemon, salsa, mint, cucumber, yogurt) ( £40) which totals up to £750.10.
