The world's most expensive sandwich record has been set by New York eatery Serendipity 3 whose signature grilled cheese sandwich holds the winning title. The grilled cheese sandwich is unlike the ordinary afternoon snack that mom used to make and instead features artisanal ingredients that few can afford on a regular grocery trip.
Priced at $214, the world's most expensive sandwich is made with a rare Caciocavallo Podolico cheese that sits between two slices of French Pullman bread. Moreover, the sandwich also features lavish ingredients like lobster, truffle oil and white truffle spread and is even soaked in Dom Perignon champagne.
As a finishing touch, Serendipity 3's cheese sandwich is accented with edible 24 karat gold leafing that adorns its edges.
