How to Blow Your Tax Return in One Bite
That magical day is almost here: the day when we open the mail and come face-to-face with a tax return check. Why spend it on necessities when you can blow it on luxurious dishes? Here are some of the most expensive food in the world to help you spend it all in one place.
Hubert Keller's FleurBurger 5000 is the crown jewel of the Vegas strip. Served at Fleur in Mandalay Bay, his meaty powerhouse contains Wagyu beef, foie gras, shaved black truffles and truffle sauce. It's served on a brioche truffle bun. Oh, yeah. It also costs $5,000. That's over 1,600 Double Doubles from In-N-Out Burger.
Breakfast is the most important meal of the day, so why not spend 2,000 bucks on an omelet? This frittata from Norma's in NYC contains gobs of lobster and is topped by more than 10 ounces of caviar. It's also the Guinness record holder for most expensive omelet. Congrats, guys!
$2,300 Hot Dog
Hot dogs are usually a buck, so what makes this dog worth 2,300 of them? Manhattan's 230 Fifth takes a dried Wagyu beef link and tops it with white truffle butter, imported mustard, saffron ketchup, champagne-cooked onions and caviar. Oh, yeah. Then it's topped with the tastiest ingredient of all: gold (really).

This ridiculous burger is topped with lobster, foie gras and truffles. No, this doesn't come from a fancy restaurant. It's from a humble NYC food truck. Clocking in at $666, it is a devilish treat. To that end, it also has a pentagram stamped on the bun.
This $1,000 concoction at NYC's Serendipity 3 is made from 5 scoops of Tahitian vanilla ice cream, Madagascar vanilla beans, expensive cocoa, rare Venezuelan chocolate, candied fruits and, oh, yeah, caviar. The whole thing is then plopped into an awesome crystal goblet. Nice!

A bowl of curry usually sets you back around $10. This Samundari Khazana Curry, brought to you by London's Bombay Brasserie, costs a cool $3,200. Why so much? The ingredient list includes Devon crab, white truffle, beluga caviar, quail eggs and, yikes, a Scottish lobster coated in gold. Gold lobster. What will they think of next?

$100 Philly Cheesesteak
Cheesesteak is the food of the people, right? Not so at South Florida's Steak 954, which has been serving up a fancy-pants cheesesteak sandwich that costs 100 bucks. It's loaded with Kobe beef, foie gras, truffles and fontina cheese. This is what Rocky 2013 eats when he wants to slum it up like Rocky 1976.

Old Homestead Steakhouse in NYC is serving up 12 ounces of heaven with its Wagyu beef strip steak. The succulent beef both melts in your mouth and your wallet, as it costs $350.
$5,000,000 Chocolate Cake
Last but certainly not least, a chocolate cake made with diamonds that will set you back a cool 5 million bucks. Also, it's inexplicably shaped like Africa. This cake is confusing but probably delicious. Diamonds are a stomach's best friend, after all.
