Posh London restaurant launches world’s most expensive £2k curry
While fast-food companies are throwing in recession-special menus to attract the masses, the classes are making no compromises with their taste buds. This time posh central London curry house Bombay Brasserie spices up its menu with the world’s most expensive curry, The Samundari Khazana, or Seafood Treasure, a mix of Beluga caviar, sea snails, a whole lobster and edible gold. Head chef Prahlad Hegde said: “There are still people out there with money to spend and this curry is a real experience.” Prahlad got the idea for the most expensive curry from his mom but only with the finest ingredients in the world. “The fish and seafood is marinated in chili and tamarind paste, then I’m going to slice truffle over the top to give it a nutty flavour.” The five tiny shavings of truffle cost £90, while the shimmering, edible gold covering parts is a staggering £1,000 for just 10g. The curry is accompanied by rice flavored with saffron, and is served with a glass of champagne for an sumptuous price tag of $3,281. The curry has been created to coincide with the DVD launch of Oscar-winning flick Slumdog Millionaire, which is set in India.
