What would you do with Ksh. 20, 338,000 ($ 200,000)? There’s quite a lot you can do like spending eight nights at the deluxe Villa Rosa Kempinski presidential suite, buying property? your favourite car? or maybe visit an exotic island in Seychelles where you could rent a yacht to sail on everyday after building sand castles with your children on the exotic sandy beaches, the list is endless!
On the other hand, you could also choose to head to Dubai’s Pierchic Restaurant, and order their gourmet pizza worth Ksh. 20, 338,000. Yes, you read it right. It is just one pizza going for that insane amount of money. According to the Guinness Book of Records, this pizza known as ‘The Royal Pizza’ is by far the most expensive pizza ever created.
The ‘Royal Pizza’ was introduced to the restaurant’s menu early this year and is made up of the finest and most expensive ingredients from around the world. The toppings included in it are very impressive. They include; Italian white alba truffles, winter black truffles from Périgord, Mongra saffron from Kashmir, French foie gras from Gascony, Iranian Almas and Beluga caviar soaked in Dom Pérignon champagne, Japanese matsutake mushrooms and 2 ounces of edible gold leaves. I did not know edible gold leaves exist in this world! The ingredients alone are estimated to have cost more than Ksh. 12,737,500 ($125, 000).
The pizza was designed for the royal family during the New Year’s Eve celebrations and was later featured permanently on the restaurant’s menu. Feeling like you need to splurge a little bit? Why don’t you order yourself a Royal Pizza. I wonder if they make deliveries.
