World’s most Expensive ‘Haute’ Dog goes on the Menu
So how much would you spend for a hot dog….$5-$10? It may not be as bizarre as the Noodle Weenie, but the ‘Serendipity Foot Long Haute Dog’ – gussied up with the food equivalent of diamonds and pearls – was admitted into the Guinness World Records last year for being the most expensive hot dog in the world, at $69 – that’s it? I was expecting something in the range of $500 – $600.
New York restaurant, Serendipity 3, which is the city’s first coffee house boutique in Manhattan has now added the world’s most expensive ‘haute’ dog on their menu.
The foot-long hot dog (30 cm) is made from pure beef, grilled in white truffle oil, sandwiched in a pretzel bun imported from Germany, and toasted with white truffle butter.
Added to the mix is a delicious topping of medallions of duck foie gras with black truffles it is served with mouth watering condiments of black truffle Dijon mustard, caramelized Vidalia onions and heirloom tomato ketchup.
BLAH…I’ll stick to my Oscar Meyer Weiner.
