What's Actually In The World's Most Luxurious French Fries

They say money can't buy happiness, but it sure can buy the world's most expensive entrées, drinks, and desserts. These are typically made with rare and ultra-expensive ingredients, and few are lucky enough to grace their palates with such decadence. Take the $25,000 Frrrozen Haute Chocolate at Serendipity 3 in NYC, for instance. This madness consists of edible gold, La Madeline au Truffle shavings, and a hot chocolate blend of cocoas, some of which are from Africa and South America, per Luxury Launches. And if that's not enough, the restaurant lets you keep its $14,000 spoon and 18-carat gold bracelet that the goblet is adorned with.

But maybe ice cream — or dessert for the matter — isn't your thing. Maybe a $169 hot dog will hit the spot in Seattle, which consists of foie gras, black truffles, and wagyu beef, via Guinness World Records. There's also a $12,000 pizza with lobster and caviar, a $25,000 taco with Kobe beef and caviar, and a $2,000 lobster frittata with lobster sauce and, you guessed it, caviar, per Lux Habitat.

Even the most expensive entrées need a sidekick, and that's where French fries come in — the Crème de la Crème Pomme Frites for a measly $200. Here's why it's so expensive and so luxurious.

Made at Serendipity 3 in NYC

According to the Guinness World Records, the restaurant that whips up the $25,000 Frrrozen Haute Chocolate also makes a $200 plate of French fries that is currently the most expensive of its fried potato friends.

Dom Perignon Champagne and J. LeBlanc French Champagne Ardenne Vinegar blanch the Upstate Chipperbeck potatoes, which are cooked in goose fat. To add depth of umami and salty flavors, the fries are coated in Urbani summer truffle oil and Guerande truffle salt, via Thrillist. The outlets also share that shaved truffle, edible gold dust, and Crete Senesi Pecorino Tartufello cheese add the finishing touches to these "Pommes frites," which are served on a Baccarat crystal Arabesque plate.

Now let's talk about the Mornay dipping sauce. A roux is made with plenty of melted truffle butter, flour, and organic A2 100% grass-fed cream. Next, it is mixed with Gruyere Truffled Swiss Raclette. The resulting texture is that of an ultra-thick and creamy fondue, served alongside the fries in its own Baccarat crystal Arabesque bowl. It also receives a hefty garnish of edible gold dust and cheese.

The Crème de la Crème Pomme Frites aren't just a plate of $200 French fries. The dish highlights unique ingredients from other countries and allows you to taste combined flavors you can't find anywhere else. It's not just a snack for satiation. It's an experience.
