5 Epic Sandwiches to Try When You're Ready to Spend $100 (or More!)
Behold the opposite of a $5 footlong.
While inflation ended Subway's famous $5 footlong sandwich deal back in 2016, you may not know just how expensive sandwiches have gotten over the years. You might complain about spending double digits for a really good one, but what happens if you have to spend over three stacks? Pure opulence, as evidenced by this countdown of the top five most expensive sandwiches in the world.
5. Montreal Smoked Meat Sandwich Kit ($99)
If you can't make it to New York City to try a Montreal-style smoked meat sandwich from Mile End Deli, you can order one of their sandwich kits (which feeds 4-6 people) to be shipped anywhere in the country. You'll have to find your own fries, though.
4. Wagyu Ribeye and Foie Gras Cheesesteak ($120)
The Philly cheesesteak at its most outrageous can be found thanks to Stephen Starr at Philadelphia's Barclay Prime, where tender Wagyu and foie gras are topped with truffle-spiked Cheese Whiz and served with a bottle of Champagne.
3. Breaded Wagyu Beef Cutlet Sandwich ($180)
Japan's Wagyumafia is planning to open a debut butcher and sandwich shop in San Francisco featuring Wagyu and Kobe beef sandwiches. Prices are expected to range from $8 all the way up to $180 for this petite breaded Wagyu beef tenderloin cutlet on white bread pictured above. It's priced high because it's made from a rare imported Japanese cow that only yields six sandwiches. But don't worry, you have some time to save up for this one—it won't be available until 2018.
2. The Quintessential Grilled Cheese ($214)
The World's Most Expensive Sandwich, according to the Guinness Book of World Records, can be ordered 48 hours in advance at New York City's Serendipity3. The Quintessential Grilled Cheese features bread made with Dom Perignon Champagne, white truffle butter, Caciocavallo Podolico cheese, and edible 24K gold leaf, as chef Joe Calderon demonstrates in the above video. Serendipity3 is also home to one of Manhattan's thousand-dollar sundaes, which would be the only logical way to finish off such an extravagant meal.
1. Seven Emirates Burgerstack ($10,000)
The Seven Emirates Burgerstack, served earlier this year at a charity event in Dubai for a winning bid of $10,000, isn't technically available to order as these others are. But you can recreate it by building a sandwich using seven beef patties, veal bacon strips, and aged cheddar cheese on a saffron brioche bun. Someone call Guinness Book, stat.
