Absurdly Expensive Versions of Fast Food

Soup

Price: $190

Soups are great because they are so versatile and you can make some great soups from scratch with only a few ingredients. There are some tasty soups that come in a can that are usually less than a dollar to purchase. Or, if you’re not in the mood to heat something up and you’re looking for some amazingly mediocre soup, Subways around the world are open 24/7.

If none of those options sound appealing to you, you could always buy a ridiculously expensive soup like the one served at the Kai Mayfair restaurant in London, England. The Chinese food restaurant has one Michelin Star and their version of the soup Buddha Jumps Over the Wall holds the Guinness World Record for most expensive soup. The soup is made from shark fin, abalone, Japanese flower mushroom, sea cucumber, dried scallops, chicken, huan ham, pork, and ginseng. In order to enjoy this soup, you’ll need $190 and to call five days in advance to order it.
